I play a feral dr00d DPS, i have 387 ilvl
I always try my best to use the rotation keeping up bleeds(dots)
i've gemmed and enchanted my gear to the best of my knowledge yet the highest dps i can do in Normal DS is 26k - and that is not very often, does anyone else have the same problem?
(I'll be happy to post an armory if it helps)

Have any logs? Care to describe how you play a Patchwerk style fight?
I'm sorry, i don't have any logs...
Patchwerk style fight:
Open up with ravage (depending on if i can prowl)
use Shred until i hit 5 combo points
use savage roar, tigers fury and berserk
then mangle and rip for their bleed effects
shred untill i reach 5 combo points use Rip
and then keep up HOTS and otherwise ferocious bite when at 5 combo points
Seems more or less correct, from what I know of playing a feral druid right. What kind of numbers are you producing? What is it that feels wrong? A little more information would be good. As you mashing your buttons hard enough and fast enough? Have good keybinds?
Shredding BEFORE you have mangle or bleeds up is doing it wrong.use Shred until i hit 5 combo points
(the math behind it is thus: Shred counts as a bleed sort of, it benefits from Mangle's debuff, and Rend and Tear increases Shred's damage.)
If you absolutely must put SR up first, in the first few seconds of a fight, do it with 1-2 CP, not 5.use savage roar, tigers fury and berserk
If you're going to 5 CP at the opener, you should probably Rip, then do the SR afterward with 1+ CP.
The TF/Zerk here is fine.
Mangle is one of your most important things to do and maintain, do it earlier. much earlier.then mangle and rip for their bleed effects
As mentioned, Rip with the first 5 CP, then SR with 1+ CP, just swap the order you're doing these finishers in.
... and it's about this time in the feral priority list that whatever you're saying you're doing, you're probably +/- 5 seconds, had to add switch, had to otherwise react to an encounter, or do some other ability to maintain it's effects. further speculation is moot.shred untill i reach 5 combo points use Rip
You'd do better off the bat if you opened properly - the stickies on the official druid forums (already linked) will help you work out what to do on almost all aspects.
To be fair, there's virtually nothing in the way of information or guides on the EU Druid Forums. US has all of the pertinent info.You'd do better off the bat if you opened properly - the stickies on the official druid forums (already linked) will help you work out what to do on almost all aspects.
Here is my rotation.
If I can Feral Charge
Ravange(Feral Charge proc)
if i don't have 5cp ill shred till i do
Rip at 5cp
Shred for a couple CP then put savage roar up
Spam shred, keep bleeds and savage roar up and unload extra CP into ferocious bites, and of course FB to keep Rip up when Blood in the water is active. TF whenever it is up. The reason I mangle and rake before ravage is to unload some focus and use ravage during a time when its low so it can recover and i still get a strong move off.
