I hit lvl 75 yesterday and
all i can see is "PAWNAGE".

Savage Roar is my nr. 1 finisher for leveling now.
+40% attack-power OMG.
I'm running arround with over 6k attack-power all the time.
the buff lasts 34 secs (5pts) and im critting for almost 900 white-damage :grin:

And with my nr. 1 leveling trinket silvercross (http://www.wowhead.com/?item=32770)
i have an AP boost almost 100% of the time on me.
This is soooo huge.


So what do you think about the new ability??

75 ! jeez.

although someone i know is 79 ! lol he needs a life ! his other half said he had about 6 hrs sleep between the release of Wrath at midnight and yesterday afternoon.

and he's taken a week off work to level ! and he's online now !

I hit 71 yesterday afternoon !

That's an old trinket available in BC yes ?

One guildie hit 80 yesterday afternoon.
It was kind of funny when i was in an instance with him at saturday night and he fell asleep during a boss-fight ;-)

I think 50% of my guild is between 75-78 right now.
Im hitting 76 today at aprox 23:00 :-)

But now my progress will slow down cause i only got 3 days from my girlfriend to do extreme-gaming ;-)
Now the time is hers again! (except the 3 normal raid-days).

My goal is dinging 80 at the end of the week or in the middle of the next week.

@Kheldar: yes it's the reputation trinket for exaltet with the shatari skyguard. there is also an equivalent trinket which boosts spelldamage (+80) instead of AP(+140).

75 ! jeez.

The best I could do was to hit 72.5 this weekend, but we did have at least two people hit 80 saturday evening. The first person on our server was a druid!

There was sever wide "Achievement" announcement for the first of each class to hit 80. Druid, then a mage about 20 mins later. Those are the only two I saw.

Add that to the list of acheivements NOT to be proud of. Yikes!

+40% attack-power OMG.Why use it during leveling? Seems like a mob would be dead by the time you'd gain the benefit.

Cause i dont need a finisher for mobs. 2-3 mangle are enough to bring the mob down. then i use SR (if not at 5 cpts 1 extra rake).
So the buff never goes away. It's 34 sec.
In every killing quest i have it up all the time.

Maybe it's just the excitement for the new ability, but i like it during grinding.
And it seems to me, that i have more energy to spare if i pawn down several mobs in a row.
Cause when mobs are near im not always full energy when coming to the next one.

I see, so you use the finisher on Mob A, but gain the benefit on mob B and C.

That make sense.

Do you use rake in your questing rotation? Or just mangle?

Normally I would say the benefit on mobs B & C would be lost because of travel distance etc. But with the crazy close proximity of mobs and the fast respawn times, I am often fighting 3-4 mobs in a row if not at one time.

I normally open with Rake if I am not stealthed, and then just mangle, mangle, (depending on energy mangle again) Fer. Bite....Loot, skin, rinse and repeat.

Normaly i use Mangle, Rake, Mangle, Mangle, SR (if i fight several mobs in short time, else FB)
But if the mobs are a little spred and i can asume that i have almost 100% energy on each mob, then i almost always go stealth->pounce->mangle->shred->FB. takes almost every mob down.

u will love it!!!

if SR active im close to 9k AP!!! (with kings)
5 man buffed (mostly kings or BoM) im at 6k AP.
And there is still lots of improvement in my gear to come.

Imagine your white crits hitting with 1k damage. This is so awesome! :grin:

I'm about 2 1/2 bars to 75... It appears I'm going to have to find another place to put SR.

... so many new fun toys, so few buttons ...

I've taken to making conditional macros for a lot of it, and putting them in a different action bar. For example, here's my Savage Roar macro...

#showtooltip
/cast [stance:3] Savage Roar; [nostance] Remove Curse

Maybe a TF/Feral Charge-Cat macro... (http://teethandclaws.blogspot.com/2008/11/macro-feral-fury.html)

#showtooltip
/cast [nocombat][modifier:ctrl] Feral Charge - Cat;Tiger's Fury

I'm gonna do something similar...untested...

/use [combat] 13
/use [combat] 14
/cast [nocombat] Feral Charge - Cat;Tiger's Fury

If that works, when I'm in combat I'd use my trinkets (if not on cooldown) then cast TF.
