Single Target Rotation

Corruption, COA, Unstable Aff, Haunt ( used for opening, 2+ shards mid fight, and when boss health low), Drain Soul

   -sometimes I use haunt every other rotation(after it depletes) to boost dps by 100   ticks or so, instead of waiting to have atleast 2 shards before utilizing haunt again

   -I'm just now starting to routinely use dark soul:misery to boost haste whenever possible.

   - I don't utilize Demonic Circle nor Demonic Gateway​   

 

Hello to All Concerned,

 

I am new to posting topics on forums, but a veteran (since BC) in WoW. I took a break after early cata and came back in April. I will keep this short.

 

Avg Dps (via Recount): 22-24k

ilvl 698

 Optimized enchants toward Haste. I am utilizing PVE/PVP gear for stats.

 

Overall, taking into concept the extra dps I could gain by using demon circ and gateway, I should not receive reports of 22k dps when I'm actually trying. I restart Recount as well as ask for others recount data and it all states the general area of 22-24k. Would someone with experienced eyes open mine.

 

Thanks in advance

 

S.N. Ive always wanted to be the best Warlock ever, I don't do alts because I haven't mastered my main. I feel that if I can be considered one of the top wow players I can help those who are in my position now. Make sense?

You have taken Haunting Spirits as your level 100 talent yet on Socrethar you had an uptime of 5% on the buff and on Iskar you had 6%.

 

Now, in your current gear I'd say that you should probably be speccing into Demonic Servitude and using the Doomguard til you get comfortable, however if you want to stick with Haunting Spirits then you need to get into the habit of aiming for as close to 100% uptime as possible, whilst still maintaining regular haunt debuff during cooldowns. This will take some getting used to and preparation.

 

To help with this, you're going to want to be using addons such as Weakauras. Do you use any addons?

I do utilize add-ons but none warlock specific. I will definitely change this to where im at least using weakauras. as far as maintaining haunt, since i do want to keep the talent, would it be better to sacrifice Glyph of Siphon Life, for Glyph of Soul Swap to not only save a soul shard (technically, according to the soul shard recharge rate and supposed left over .35% of a shard)** but to maintain "buffed" dot ticks via the SoulBurn:Haunt talent?

 

**i researched that information from other topics that mentioned using weakauras as well before posting this topic. you solidified that i DO need the add-on.

...what?

 

You basically don't use SS at all really, like...ever. It is a very small gain to use once you have really good gear to get your dots out faster in the opener, but outside of that it is basically never touched.

 

You don't aim to maintain Haunt, you aim to maintain the buff from SB:Haunt. If  you can also keep haunt up it is a huge plus, but it isn't something you actively try to do if it means sacrificing other things.

 

You need 2 Soul Shards every 30 seconds for SB:H, getting those shards in suck gear is very hard. Once you get about 720ilvl and your HFC 4pc it will be HUGELY easier to do and make Aff a lot more valuable.

Since this topic says gear optimization in the title I'll write in here. I am conflicted on whether I should be gemming/enchanting haste or mastery. I see haste with a high value at my gear level(740) yet I feel like my numbers are better when I go full mastery rather than full haste. Any suggestions? http://us.battle.net/wow/en/character/hyjal/Roblinz/advanced

Haste is the best Aff single target stat, mastery is the best multi-dot. Since there isn't many purely single target fights in HFC and you don't always want to play Aff on every fight and Mastery is the best Destro and Demo stat, most people run pure mastery so they can do everything all the time.

 

However, if you want to run two sets of gear or regem for every other fight, you can.

 

TL;DR, gem/enchant mastery.

      Hello,
      Adelante is currently recruiting DPS & Heals, however, all competent players will be considered.  We are a Horde guild on Arthas and our current progression is 8/10N NH 4/7M EN and 3/3H TOV.  As far as classes go we do not have a Moonkin, Mage, Feral Druid, Rogue, or any type of Monk. We only raid two nights a week, Tuesday and Wednesday from 7:00 PM until 11:00 PM Eastern.  Thursday is not considered a raid night, but we will often clear Heroic and Normal on this evening for AP and it is not required. We are pushing progression on Il'gynoth, and look forward to finishing off EN then moving on to Nighthold, we will be intermittently working on Mythic TOV.
      From you, we would expect 100% attendance during your trial period; after that, if you cannot make a raid or will be late it is mandatory to keep the raid leader updated.  In order to continue making good progression while raiding only two nights a week, we expect that you know your class inside-out and will research any bosses you are unfamiliar with prior to raids.
       If you are interested, you can either reply to this thread and link your most recent combat logs for review, make a character on our realm and inbox me, or hit me up on real ID (violentravi#1826).  Alternatively, if you are old school, please apply via our website:  http://www.adelante-guild.com
      Thank you for your consideration
      Xoxo

      Who we are
      <Hollow> is a semi-hardcore guild created by a group of friends, experienced players, that raided HC together in WOTLK. We reunited and transfered to the same realm to create a guild, or more accurately, a home. We keep a very friendly environment in and out of raids, oftenly joining discord to chat even if we aren't doing anything. Guild activities include but are not limited to mythic dungeons, mythic + and raiding.
      Our goals
      Our current progress is 4/7M and 3/3HC. Our current goal is to down mythic EN to gear up and also prepare for Nighthold!
      What we are looking for
      Recruitment currently closed for Mythic raiding with the exception of 1 Shadow Priest.
      People that want only heroics can join regardless of specs. Socials are still welcome!
      Our raiding schedule
      Our current raiding schedule is 3 raids a week for 3 hours:

      Wednesday 8pm to 11pm server time - NH Normal
      Sunday 8pm to 11pm server time - EN Mythic
      Tuesday 8pm to 11pm server time - EN Heroic / ToV Heroic
      The guild is using DKP system
      NOTE: We have added a catch up system for new recruits. When you get past the trial phase and join the ranks as a raider of our guild, you also earn 200 dkp as bonus and when you prove yourself that you are worthy of a core spot, you also get 300 dkp as bonus. We wont leave anyone behind no matter how new while at the same time, drawing a line for our core, active raiders that have been with us since the start.
