Ferocious Bite is the classic druid finishing move that causes damage per combo point and consumes up to 25 additional energy to increase damage by up to 100%, so with 5 additional energy it would do a seventh more damage.
Ferocious Bite is available at level 6.
Tips and tactics
- Damage is increased by attack power.
- Using this ability when procs will negate the base 25 energy cost. However up to 25 energy (if available) will still be spent on the ability's additional effect.
- or may produce more damage under most conditions, including high armor on the target.
- In PvE, this is thus only advisable once you already have a or , and a up.
