Gemming and enchanting your gear, as well as using consumables in raids, are some of the most important things you can do to improve your character. The gain from using these is often far greater than the minor optimizations we make with gear, so it’s good to prepare your character appropriately for your raids!

This page will summarize the gems, enchants, and consumables that Feral DPS players should use in PvE. Note that the optimal rotation for Ferals is always being developed, meaning stat priorities and therefore gear, enchant, and consumable choices are not clear-cut. The information here is compiled from the best available current knowledge; this guide will be continuously updated as more information comes out.

Gems

Relentless is the best meta gem available for physical DPS classes.

delicate / delicate2 are the best in slot gems for all slots. You should use these in all slots, except to activate your meta gem requirements with a nightmaretear, or to activate a very good socket bonus.

Nightmaretear is a powerful gem, but only one can be used at a time. It matches any socket colour and also counts as 1 gem of each colour towards to activate your Relentless, making it extremely useful. You should always use one in your gear set, and using it in a yellow or blue socket for a socket bonus is ideal.

hit / epichit are decent gems for DPS, but should only be used for a good socket bonus.

Nightmaretear is a powerful gem, but only one can be used at a time. It matches any socket colour and also counts as 1 gem of each colour towards to activate your Relentless, making it extremely useful.

blueagistam / epicagistam are weak gems for DPS players, and should only be used for a very strong socket bonus.

Enchants

Until you reach revered with Knights of the Ebon Blade, Ferocity is the best alternative.

axe is the best DPS shoulder enchant. If you do not have Inscription, the alternative is Axe.

Players with the Tailoring profession (not very good for Ferals, so not listed above) should use their profession-exclusive Swordguard Embroidery enchant here, while others use Enchant Cloak – Major Agility.

Players with the Engineering profession should use Flexweave Underlay – 1 extra agility isn’t much, but the parachute effect is neat.

This is your only viable option for this slot.

Players with the Leatherworking profession should use their profession-exclusive furlining enchant, while everyone else uses apbracers.

Additionally, players with the Blacksmithing profession should use Socket Bracer to add an extra socket to their bracers. It stacks with enchants.

Players with the Engineering profession should use their profession-exclusive Hyperspeed Accelerators. Everyone else should use Enchant Gloves – agility for general use.

Additionally, players with the Blacksmithing profession should use Socket Gloves to add an extra socket to their gloves. It stacks with enchants.

This is your only option for this slot.

This is your best option for this slot.

If you’re strapped for cash, you could use the more budget-friendly budgetLegArmor instead.

Players with the Engineering profession should use their profession-exclusive Nitro Boosts enchant here, while everyone else uses vitalitybootenchant.

Players with the Enchanting profession should use their profession-exclusive EnchantringAP enchant on both of their rings.

With weapon effects now able to proc in form in Wrath, Mongoose is the best enchant for Feral DPS.

Consumables

Stoneblood is the strongest flask/elixir for physical DPS and should be used at all times.

This is the best food available for feral DPS.

This is the best on-use potion for physical DPS. Make sure you pop one before combat starts, so you can pop another one during combat!

You can still use scrolls in Wrath of the Lich King — however, they do not stack with stat-boosting effects offered by class buffs.

Agility and strength scrolls are all beneficial for Ferals, but you should have raid buffs providing all of these stats. Don’t worry about them unless your raid composition is a bit of a mess!

I've been an avid WoW player since Vanilla. At 6 years old, I was slowly progressing through Blackfathom Deeps and levelling up with my brothers. Since Classic Wow launched, I've found a new way to enjoy the game; participating in Feral Druid theorycrafting communities and performing well in an underdog class has been a fun challenge. I hope to be able to share all I've learned with anyone who shares that interest!
