The extra stack they switched it to somewhat compensated for the change, but now the alacrity boost just seems random and off-brand.

So, not that it matters at all, I suggest that the Precision window revert back to its original state - or add an additional damage boost after Zen activates.

Additionally, I'd like to point out that this is the one Mara/Sent spec that essentially requires alternate gearing to be viable. Most people just copy/paste their stats from the other 2 disciplines, and I think this is the largest factor in people feeling as if the spec underperforms.
I don't know…

There were two positive sides when Ferocity (formerly Gore) was GCD based:

- sneaking in an additional hit (GCD) due to the delivery-time of Vicious Throw/Dual Saber Thow
- sneaking in an additional hit (GCD) due to clipping Ravage 0.2s before it Ends.
Basically, if you were fast, you could hit four and Five Damage abilities within a single Gore (now Ferocity) window. That was bonkers.

On the other hand, having two and three stacks has the benefit of being more helpful with mechanics, downtimes, other priorities.

Frankly, I like where Ferocity is right now and when I look back at 5.0 where Carnage was one of the better specs, the usage of fillers hasn't really increased since then. IIrc, it should be 1-2 more fillers after each Ferocity window.
Increasing the base damage of Ravage/Gore/Massacre would be fine. Maybe by turning the Furious Power ability into a passive...
