Warlock looking for pointers for even better DPS

3 posts in this topic

Greetings!

 

I've had some decent luck getting my DPS numbers up, I think there is still plenty of room for improvement. I'm asking the community here to help me out. I'm open to any adjustments, constructive feedback, etc.

thank you in advance for any feedback!

General:

 

  • Why haste? Haste is best for pure ST, something that almost never happens in a raid. Mastery gems/enchants will serve you a LOT better.

Iron Reaver:

  •  Cataclysm on Iron Reaver is a HUGE mistake; cataclysm as Aff is a huge mistake. Soul Burn: Haunt is your best friend and only lvl 100 talent option.
  • UGoS is multi-target only, if you have a DIS you need to be using it. If you don't have one, get one asap.
  • Only one pot used.

 

HHC:

  • Only 44% uptime on SB:H buff on HHC, this is about 50% lower than it should be. You need to be keeping this buff up as close to 100% as humanly possible.
  • UGoS again, bad pick if you have other options.
  • When was this lust used? Looks like a really weird place for it. Not your fault, but fixing it would help the raid a lot.

Kilrogg Deadeye:

  • 56% uptime on SB:H, again REALLY low. Need to fix that.
  • Only 1 pot used.
  • DoTs were 98%, 96%, and 97%. Good, but can be better. 99.5% for all three is doable and should be done.

Gorefiend

  • UGoS, ew.
  • 84% uptime on UA is really bad.
  • 74% uptime on SB:H is worse.

Iskar:

  • *I* wouldn't play Aff on Iskar, but if your guild has zero problems on it then go for it. I just love to blow the fight up in destro.
  • 80% UA uptime is really bad
  • 57% uptime on SB:H is worse.

 

I didn't look at the rest of the fights, I've seen enough to find a trend.

 

Your uptimes on DoTs need work. Your uptime on SB:H buff needs a HUGE amount of work. Get a DSI ASAP.

I imagine this is primarily a UI issue because there's no way with a proper UI you'd have more uptime on your weapon enchant than Haunting Spirits.  

 

My UI has a big Haunting Spirits icon with a countdown and then it yells at me when it has <9s left to remind me to reapply it during pandemic range.  It helps me plan my shards when it has a long duration and be ready to reapply when I need.

 

I don't see being shard starved is your issue - you're certainly casting enough Haunts throughout an encounter, but you're just failing to re-apply SB:Haunt at the right time.

 

Sort that out and you'll see HUGE improvements.  Just remember, SB:Haunt+Haunting Spirits 100% is FAR GREATER than regular Haunt uptime.
