Aff/Destro Warlock DPS Woes (Help Requested)
Hi everyone, I'll be honest: I need some help with my DPS. I've struggled with the majority of HFC, and don't really know where else to turn.
For Aff, I'm going GoSac/SB:H
For Destro, I'm going GoSac/CR
I am the only lock in the raid, named Penguin
Here are my most recent logs for Heroic Iron Reaver: (Affliction)
H Kormok: (Affliction)
H Hellfire High Council: (Affliction)
H Kilrogg: (Destro)
H Gorefiend: (Destro)
A couple comments for each of the fights:
Iron Reaver: I was testing out a couple /stopcasting macros which kinda screwed up my Dot uptimes, so I'm not sure how accurate this fight will be in comparison to most pulls. Other than that, plus some buff misalignments/not potting a second time, it was a fairly normal pull.
Kormok: Now, here is where I'm getting a little lost. Given that I don't have the Fragment of the Dark Star trinket, I'm avoiding going Destro as much as I can. However, even with a 4pc, I'm only in the 16th percent of my bracket. My lowest uptime for my dots was UA at 93%, which could certainly be higher, but I don't feel that would cost me THAT much in performance. I noticed my buff alignment/Haunting Spirits was messy towards the end, but that seems to generally happen regardless of what I try to do. Suggestions?
Council: Basically the same as Kormok, though i feel I did better. In fact,I had significantly higher uptimes on my dots and was only 19th in my bracket. What gives?
Kilrogg: Now, with Destro i've always felt weak, and with an immolate uptime of 58% and only 10 shadowburns, I can more or less understand this number. Yet, I don't really understand how to improve outside of getting these two numbers up (only using shadowburns for sniping adds, of course) so help there would be appreciated. Would improving these two numbers result in the crazy high numbers that even those who don't go in the portal see?
Gorefiend: Same as Kilogg, though I feel I did significantly better with Shadowburns (Immolate was terrible, and while there are more things to Shadowburn, my use of a mouse over macro was as efficient as I could be).
TL;DR- I feel like I'm doing well but I'm not compared to other warlocks, help?
Hellfire Assault Disscusion
Hey everyone, I wanted to asked about what the most approved strategy for Hellfire Assault in Hellfire Citadel, more specifically on Heroic. I've been doing it using Affliction, but I've noticed that my numbers have been pretty subpar in comparison to the rest of my team as well as in comparison to the rest to the raid bosses.
After looking around and thinking about the problem, it seems like going Destro w/ Charred Remains would be the best strategy for this fight, but I have a couple questions:
1. While this would probably be the best way to rock the DPS meters, how do you play it? Spam Chaos Bolt on key targets, or use Fire and Brimstone and go crazy on all the adds? It seems like it would be pretty easy to pull great numbers without actually being that helpful using that strategy.
2. Would using Fire and Brimstone screw over the raid by activating the Gorebound Felcaster's Metamorphosis without actually killing them? That's the difficulty our team has been having.
In essence, I have very little experience with the Charred Remains while using Fire and Brimstone style of playing, and am not sure of how to adapt with each fight (especially this one). If anyone has any specific advice, or knows where to get it, I'd really appreciate it.

How to handle my affliction warlock
Hello, readers from Icy Veins. I thank all of the souls who helped me with my last set of questions but I now turn to the warlock community for help with my next member I need to fix. This one is an affliction warlock by trade, with demonology as an offspec. Great guy, makes people laugh but is fairly consistent for being one of our lower performers. I'm looking for some tips and tricks, DoT uptime notes that I didn't get, and things that I can say to him in writing.
Here is the armory, http://us.battle.net/wow/en/character/aerie-peak/Animaus/simple
Here are a couple of logs for raid nights he was present on.
These logs should have something from just about every boss on him apart from Thogar, in which I was a fool and didn't log him in the beginning. Anything you guys can give me would be heavily appreciated.
[pvp] affliction warlock optimisation
I haven t seen much threads about the lock in pvp situations so here I am.
As arena affliction warlocks I was actually wondering which stats should we focus on ?
First answer that comes to mind is mastery ofc, it ups all the damage. However, I ve seen many top locks on the ladder going for full haste on stuff and enchants (even taking the ashran pieces versatility/haste). An another top lock, Maldiva is full mastery (even on his staff enchant) tho. Other locks are hybrid, half haste half mastery. It s tough to see a pattern,
In my opinion Haste should be better becoz of the passive that grants us 5% more haste from all sources + the overall haste buff. Even more on this "kick oriented" meta.
So a pvp stuff full haste + some warforged mythic pieces with +50 mastery gems on them would be the optimal stuff imo (let me think also what u guys think of pve stuff in pvp ! :>)
Let me know what you guys think on this matter even if it seems that this forum is pretty much pve oriented.
