Thanks a ton. I've really been curious about that trinket. In fact, I've had a suspicion that it was good for awhile. So much so that I've kept it in my bags just in case... I'm gonna take another look tonight.
Thanks, esp. for the doom tip. I'll pay more attention to that for sure.
Edit: "(if 4pc, pandemic means your Doom will always be buffed by DS)"
This strikes me as an issue. I've foolishly been refreshing Doom outside of DS.
Yeah, I personally didn't bother with FRG until I got 4pc because the cooldown didn't quite line up as well. It's still a good trinket without 4pc, it's just more annoying to play with in my personal opinion.
But you wanna pay close attention to Doom. making sure to apply it at max duration (should only have to hit it twice in opener. once for first application and the second time when all of your procs are up / before any fall off) and with as much power as possible. The addon Affdots can help you a ton with monitoring Doom's power, even if it's geared towards affliction.
I personally use a combo of Affdots to track dots/dot power, WeakAuras to track what procs are currently active (I use a multi-bar setup using a "dynamic group", but some people display it other ways), and TellMeWhen to track the CD on my synapse springs, trinkets, lightweave cloak enchant, dark soul, Service Felguard etc. This way I can appropriately plan out how my burn phase is going to go / when or if I'm going to refresh doom anytime soon / if I should fury dump now or wait later.
Generally if you're just getting started, it's okay to just dump fury (edit: down to about 700) when you're about to cap, but once you feel experienced enough, you want to be spending it (DFury) a bit on procs outside of DS too. Just need to manage your fury in a way that you'll have enough to last through FRG/DS next time you pop it.
Demo is all about timing your cooldowns correctly and managing your fury correctly. Once you've got that down to second nature, you'll be good to go! Demo has ridiculously high burst when played just right. I managed to hit 580k peaks during my CD phases on heroic stone guards. Managed 320k peaks on a few other bosses too. Still room for improvement, but happy with that for just entering heroics
