When to stack Agility?
When you have armor penetration, hit, and expertise capped. But NOT crit capped.
When should you start stacking armor penetration? And is it better than agility?
So Agility increases your bleed damage. Armor penetration reduces enemy armor increasing your physical damage, the most important thing you have to know is that most of Kitty dps is done by melee attacks.
You should start stacking armor penetration when you have 50% from gears which is about 700 Armor penetration.

Savage Roar > Mangle > Rip > Rake > Shred > Ferocious Bite
Kitty dps is not about spamming spells. Your energy is your girlfriend, the less you pressure her, the more she gives you. You need to keep your Savage Roar, Mangle,FF up at all times and reapply your dots when they're off (Completely) ASAP. So as you can conclude your rotation is based on a set of PRIORITY, and ain't no such a thing as 1234.
Thanks, I've been following this guide in addition to others but I keep coming across the same inconsistencies.
1) Why is your arp threshold so high? Other guides I've been following suggest 400arp via gear before stacking arp gems.
2) Other guides suggest using Rip before SR.
2.1) Again, the suggestion is to let Rake drop then reapply asap, whilst keeping Rip up 100%
3) I'm sure I've missed something implicit along the way, but how do you propose starting with SR with no CP?
At 250arp +agi stacked a solid 50% of all my damage comes from white attacks.
Ay brotha, sorry I was busy last couple days..
I.First thing, I'd encourage you to start stacking armor penetration on somewhere around -50% because that's when you can actually start noticing the difference between Agility/Arm combo (It's lovely seeing your shred doing a lot more damage than it used to). You can get very significant armor penetration process such as Needle-Encrusted Scorpion
trinket and few other. In addition, low gears don't give you that much critical strike, stacking agility would work best as it will increase your bleeds damage (AP) as well as crit strike for the use of Primal fury talent.
II. Most of kitty damage is done by melee attacks. In addition, Savage roar also increase your spells damage. SR>Rip anytime.
There's no difference between rake and rip, you want to let them drop then reapply ASAP. Because you don't want to lose a tick just for the sake of keeping it on all the time. Also, applying a 5 combo rip right when it drop shouldn't be an issue with more practice you will see how that works.
III. Use SR with atleast x2 combo points. I usually start my rotation with FF>Mangle>Rake>SR to get that SR ASAP.
Note: And during fights it really goes back to priority. So let's say your rip is about to run out at the same time your SR. You might want to get x2 SR real quick (Ideally you want it at x4) then get that rip back ASAP. Again, trust me it sounds confusing trying to explain it, all it needs is just practice.
Best of luck bud
