    Better way of thinking about it, Udyr from League of Legends.
    They made it sound like you get pets with this soul, when I was on pts someone else asked me where the new soul's pets were. Just wondering.

    Latest change:

    Primal Lord
    Hawk's Fury and Thresher's Maw no longer require 100 Fury or Cunning to cast. They instead work at reduced efficiency when not at 100 Fury or Cunning.
    Reduced efficiency means around a 90% damage reduction. I'm guessing this change is to eliminate the ability to macro TM and HF.


    However, you can now just go 26 Primal Lord, and do

    starting at harmony
    (Bear's Fury)Hawk's Wrath ->(Panther Claw)Legendary Scything Strike ->Thresher's Maw

    and repeat. You'll bounce between full cunning and harmony. Does way better damage than 31 Primal Lord. Since you skip Primal Sunder, you can take Legendary Scything Strike, which gives you huge Thresher's Maw hits every 3 seconds.

    Also, you will be hitting Bear's Fury and Panther Claw on cooldown. In the 31 version, you'd only hit them every 4 seconds even though the CD is 3 seconds. (Because you don't get the GCD reduction from Rage of the Beast any more.)


    In theory, you could do something similar by staying in fury and alternating Hawk's Wrath and Fury Blast every 3 seconds, but it doesn't work because Legendary Scything Strike doesn't buff Fury Blast

    The fix for vorpal salvo also seems to have fixed harmony of life.


    Legendary Scything Strike still doesn't affect abilities that have a legendary version.


    General Feedback: I like the mechanics of the soul (gotta go fast!), and the animations are cool. However, the soul needs more. As it stands now, you can use it on single target boss fights. Like every other primalist ST soul.


    No self heals and no survivability boosts means it's not a good solo soul. Probably not a good PVP soul either, especially with 0 disconnect.


    The cleave is still real weak, so another strike against soloing, and you won't use it in a boss fight with adds to burn down. What spec am I supposed to play on High Priest Arakhurn (now that you can't swap)? Why can't we have a soul that I can play an entire dungeon with, instead of having to swap specs between trash and bosses all the time. It's easy for other callings with bladedancer/harbinger/shaman.... etc


    Primalist have two glaring weaknesses - no single target with good cleave soul, and a lack of strong soloing souls. We also have two new dps souls coming out - seems like these could fill the voids.

    Well the fix has gave Vorpal Salvo yet another major bug in the PTS, 75% of mines are doing 0 damage (as shown in the combat log) and the rest are not receiving the triple boost from Cunning. Not sure what happened.

    I could also begin going into off souls and show you how gimped primalist is for off souls as well, but I've spent the past two hours writing this up. Hopefully this helps you make some changes before it goes live.
    BD isnt viable for pvp or pve unless you literally have no interrupt and need one or for aoe trash in DD or Gyel. Its disconnect is actually pretty terrible. Not sure the comparison with this prim soul if this could be a top or good dps spec but Sin has alot less raid or group utility compared to other dps souls.

    Thresher's Maw damage is varying wildly at 100 cunning, ranging from 90% reduced damage to 10%. It sometimes does the expected damage but it's pretty rare. It only seems to behave this way during the rotation after a primal sunder. If I were to get to 100 cunning using another ability, it would do the expected damage.
