No, not this guy...
The new 5 man instance located on the Isle. If I have to see the Commendation of Kael'thas fall and get disenchanted another time I will lose my mind. Mind you I ran Black Morass about 20 times before the Hourglass of the Unraveller fell and I actually won the roll, I can't even seem to whiff the Shard of Contempt, which is now rated as the top trinket for kitty DPS.
I am running ZA now weekly (I hope, it is really left to Laguna who has done a great job leading the run and just about guaranteeing a successful 3 timed chest run and a full clear) for the chance at Berserker's Call which would be an upgrade to both my current trinkets. We are still farming T5 bosses in SSC so maybe getting a Tsunami Talisman is not completely out of the question.
Anyone who keeps up with Emmerald's site for ranking Feral druid gear might have noticed a shift in item rankings. + Hit has been given more weight than it was previously though I don't believe this really is the case. Having a Romulo's Poison Vial I can guarantee you it is not better than Darkmoon Card: Crusade from real world results. A matter of fact when I took many druids advice as to re-gemming from + Hit to straight agility and ignoring the hit cap my DPS did increase.
What I think the general consensus is, about 92 Hit is a soft cap since through raid buffs and debuffs like Improved Faerie Fire you really don't need the mathematical cap of 142. 142 is what you would need without the help of a 25 man raid, and really, when do you plan on taking on Vashj solo? Before sorting all this out I decided to just ignore the cap and it definitely worked out for the best with maybe just 1-2 true missed hits per boss fight which really is much of nothing while my Crit went up and my damage.
I am going to start trying out some of the new power shifting macros hopefully this week and report back as to their success. I plan on limiting it use for the "burn him now" times during a boss fight as to not use up mana at the beginning or middle of a fight where a battle rez or some other ability might be needed, after all our biggest benefit to a raid are all of our various abilities that can help in "Oh Crap" situations to avoid a wipe and another 15 minutes of getting ready for the next attempt.
