Feral Druid Phials
Overall the best phial for Feral Druids is Iced Phial of Corrupting Rage. Phial of Static Empowerment is technically the actual best Phial however it's downsides upon movement means that in real terms it's almost certainly not the best option in real terms.
The self damage from Iced Phial of Corrupting Rage isn't significant enough to cause major issues however if you are really concerned about the self damage properties then Phial of Elemental Chaos may be the next best option.
