You ask 100 raid groups how they handle loot and you'll get 100 different answers. At the end of the day only one answer matters: How does the raid group YOU are in handle it? Even if 100 raid groups sided with you, it isn't going to change your groups policy just because the internet thinks they are right or wrong.
This definitely isn't a question for the DPS Analysis thread and I don't even think for the SQ/SA thread. At best you can run a sim to see the dps difference between the two but I think that's about all the math you're going to get on it.
Iâ€™m not sure if this is the right place to post this question, so please feel free to redirect me if needed. Iâ€™m posting it here because I want the huntersâ€™ perspective. I also asked the question in a feral druid forum.
I am curious about whether guilds or raid teams give priority to feral (cat) druids over hunters for the bis agility polearm (i.e., Kiril, Fury of Beasts). It's my understanding that the polearm makes a much bigger difference to feral dps than to hunter dps because most feral abilities are directly influenced by the power of our Melee Weapon , whereas hunters just benefit from the regular stats or procs on the item (which clearly are quite nice, in this case, for both hunters and ferals). I'm guessing that hunter dps is modified by the damage on the ranged weapon (i.e., bow) instead, making the bow their most important weapon. Is this reasoning correct? Does anyone know the math involved or exactly how big the difference the upgrade is for druids vs. hunters?
The bottom line being, if youâ€™re a hunter and you have a feral druid on your raid team, would you pass on the polearm for the feral druid?
