This is a build designed to do maximum DPS for a single target.
You have 3 points left. Spend them as wish, here are a few suggestions.
Survival Instinct & Nurturing Instinct are not a top priority in your build but can save your life on encounters where you have to absorb damage. They also make the job of your healer easier.
Improved Mangle is used only when you have to constantly swap between targets.
Gems are situational and depend on the build and equipment. They are used to reach the required stat caps.
Nightmare Tear x1
Fill the rest of the Blue slots with Red Gems.
Also, Haste rating gems are useful only with 100% Armor Penetration.

You are the best target for Hysteria. All of your damage is physical and you benefit from this buff most of all classes.
Rotation & Rules:
Maintain Savage Roar at all times. If needed, refresh with 1 Combo Point
Maintain Mangle (Cat). (Other Arms warriors or druids may do it)
Combo Points are made with Shred (but № 2, 3 are more important)
At 5 Combo Points use Rip, if not used already
Tiger's Fury is used when below 30 energy. Used on cooldown
Clearcast procs are used for Shred
If at 5 Combo Points Savage Roar and Rip have more than 8 secs, then use Ferocious Bite
