Feral Combat is a tier 2 feral talent that improves the Bear Form Faerie Fire debuff and the Cat Form finishing move Ferocious Bite. It is the black sheep of the feral combat tree, unused in any serious build.

Tips and tactics Edit
This is one of many feral talents that have two separate effects, one for Cat Form and one for Bear Form, giving Druids part of their hybrid reputation. Unfortunately, it is not highly useful for either form.
The change to the Demoralizing Roar bebuff comes down to 19 AP per talent point at the highest rank. Against enemy players, this is less than 2 DPS.
Even with the effect of this talent, Ferocious Bite does less damage than Rip with 5 combo points. With Mangle, Rip would still dwarf FB in total damage. This is, of course, assuming that the DOT from Rip finishes or nearly finishes.
Overall, the talent is outweighed in importance by every other early talent in all of the druid talent trees.
