Felhunter notes

FelHunterI did some quick and dirty tests with my felhunter and wanted to note them down.

Shadow Bite
Improved Felhunter

Fully talented my Felhunter should Shadow Bite every 2 seconds. The damage of that is increased by the number of shadow dots you have on the target. Shadow bite costs 3% of his base mana but if it hits (which is should if the warlock and therefore pet is hit capped) it regens 8% of his max mana. So it looks like he should have excess mana.. just in case you wanted to spec into Dark Pact.

On a dummy I was seeing the following:
~500 dps from the felhunter on a dummy.
About 50% of the felhunter’s dps was from melee attacks.
About 50% of the felhunter’s dps was from Shadow bite.
Haunt is not a dot. The felhunter’s shadow bite was buffed by Corruption, CoA and Unstable Affliction.

Idle thoughts:
– I believe our pets share pally buffs with us. I believe Blessing of Might would be a DPS increase to the felhunter. So if we have multiple pallies in the raid it’s worthwhile to get Blessing of Might.

  1. “I believe our pets share pally buffs with us”

    Yes, they do. My pally is never quite sure what to put on warlocks in 5-man dungeons — about half of you seem to want Wisdom, the other half want Kings. Now you’re saying you want Might? My poor head…

    I started to reply to your comment and realized I had a lot to say 🙂 so I broke it out into the next post.

  3. Huh… that makes me wonder:

    What would be a high DPS increase? Kings on me (for the very slight Crit increase) or Might on me (and thus on my Felguard)…

    I’ll have to test it. 🙂
