Cats in PvECat
s are generally not used in PvE content, i.e Raids or Mythic+. Generally, all three specs prefer to have a Tenacity pet, unless Primal Rage
is needed. Ferocity pets can be good for questing and open world content, however, there are better pet families better suited, such as Core Hound
s or Scalehide
s. Cats are generally just used for aesthetic purposes in current content. If you do decide to use a Cat
, here are a couple of rules on how to use Prowl
- During Raid: It's ok to use Prowl here, although the gain from having it on is very minor. It will buff your cat's first attack or ability, generally speaking, its first Basic Attack (Claw). If you open with Kill Command, it will also buff your first Kill Command by 20%. This rule also applies to Spirit Beasts, which is the most commonly used pet for raids currently. Again, the benefit is so minuscule that most people don't bother leaving it on due to the decreased speed.
- During Mythic+: Generally not recommended. While you do gain the extra damage from each initial hit, your pet often will lag behind and be late to the party. The minuscule increase in damage is typically not worth losing uptime from your pet.
