Swipe for cat (doesn't award combo points). Nice. Now I just need to find the bar space!

lol, agreed.

I am sure this will hit live servers within a week after I hit 80 and go back to bear full time. /irony

I'm so happy about this. Single target dps is sooooooo boring when everyone else is aoe'ing.

Plus we aren't competitive in AOE situations... oddly dropping into bear, and trying to get agro isn't overly appealing... as we'll be out of rage immediately and then not able to do anything.... again.... or dead.

That will be nice for instances. Kitty DPS has long been ignored because the meters look unfavorable when there are multi-mobs. Our energy simply doesn't allow for long term sustained DPS. The real question is, How much energy will Kitty swipe cost? Are we going to have to empty the energy bar for 2 swipes and get 400-500 dmg per target?

would be no increase in damage when shred hits for 4-5k on a single on.
it should be at least 1000-1500 damage per target.

Rogue's Fan of Knives is going to cost 50 energy. I'm thinking probably somewhere right around there.

Which seems pretty steep, but enough to hit 2 back to back.
