Question about cat's claw

Post by Julianfish » Tue Sep 19, 2023 11:19 am

It is writen in class changes.
"Claw now also deals 100% of weapon damage in addition to its current damage.
Note: This value is calculated on the invisible Claw weapon druid forms get when shapeshifting and does not correspond with your normal weapon."

in vanilla, claw works in that mechanic right?
so what this change means?

It's a buff. In 1.12.1 vanilla, claw only did static damage not scaling with anything.
Compare vanilla: Claw the enemy, causing 115 additional damage. Awards 1 combo point.
with turtle: Claw the enemy, causing 100% normal damage plus 115. Awards 1 combo point.

I played vanilla and remember the damge of claw is melee damage + static number.

Check again, original claw does aditional damage, so its 115 + bonus by AP

Twow is weapon damage (66 dps iirc) + 115 + bonus by AP

Nope, is a fixated druid weapon which doesn't scale at all.

It literally says same thing. "Claw the enemy, causing 115 additional damage.". Same as Twow "buffed" version. At least that's how it is in classic. If in vanilla it did static damage only that would have been insane oversight.

Nope. It's a set in stone from level 20 invisible weapon damage that isn't scalable or affected by your actual weapon damage.
Elmhoof - 60 Feral, between tanking/dps (Main)
Anbone 34 Shadow Priest (Planned secondary main)
Manypunchman - 10 Naked Troll Boxer (Hardcore)

I'm back! More or less...
