Demo + Destro dual spec; reforge

9 posts in this topic

Hello. First of all, I want to thank everyone who's contributed to making this forum the #1 resource for all things warlocky - I've been hanging out here ever since I returned to WoW a few months ago.

I realize there are a lot of reforge posts available, but I can't seem to find what I am looking for. I've been playing destruction since 5.2 hit, trying a few different reforge schemes along the way. Crit > haste > mastery, mastery > haste -> crit, and even haste > mastery > crit.

After getting the LFR version of Unerring Vision of Lei Shen I decided to try demonology with haste > mastery > crit reforge, going for 25% haste to get extra ticks of Doom.

This has worked quite well, but I am not ready to give up destruction just yet - I still find it better on some encounters. However, I'm not satisfied with my current reforge scheme for destruction.

Do you guys have any advice on how to reforge in order to get the most out of both specs? I realize this will probably hurt both specs a bit, but as long as it's not too much of a dps loss in either spec, I really prefer a setup which works for both.

1 RPPM trinket, with legendary meta...

Aim for 8100 haste, then put the rest in to mastery. That breakpoint works well for both Demo and Destro and is easily attained at your ilvl (looks like you're already there).

Anything is fine really as long as it isn't crit.

To quote Zagam, "Crit is shit." I believe that's the phrase to use this tier as it applies to all 3 specs.

Thanks for the feedback. What do you imply here, though, not sure I follow?

Oh its kind of just a mental checklist as to how much I weigh haste over mastery. The extra haste raises the proc chances of RPPM items so in theory you'd get more benefit from your trinkets/meta, but in reality it doesn't matter that much. Those things have a mind of their own as to how many times they want to proc on a fight-to-fight basis that you wont notice a 2% increase in a proc chance.

WIth 2 RPPM trinkets, and the meta gem is it better to stack haste, or is it better to keep mastery on par with haste?

Depends on your gear level, but it hasn't been a bad idea to strike a balance between haste and mastery all tier.

Currently 528. I tried the mega haste (30%+ with destro. It was interesting)

      Hello all.  I was just reading up on what addons Icy Veins suggested and noticed AffDot was one of them for Affliction Warlock use.  However, when I took a look at the this addon at Curse, it shows it is really old and has not been updated for Legion, according the information at Curse.
      World of Warcraft    6,805 Monthly Downloads
      Supports: 6.0.31    004,921 Total Downloads
      Updated Feb 19, 2015    Created Nov 6, 2012
      Does anyone know if there is a replacement for this addon since it seems not to have been updated for some time?
      Thanks in advance for any info.

      Sindorei Council, a family-friendly and socially active guild has been active since 7/24/2007 (BC drop), currently 6/7 (H)EN.  Seeking DPS (notably ranged) for completion of Heroic and preparation to move on Nighthold.  
      We are not a hardcore progression guild - have never been and don't seek to create that atmosphere.  We are an incredibly welcoming social guild with a core raid component of very skilled players who have enough real-life going on that one night/week (occasionally 2) is what we push for.   We've reached 6/7 H-EN on one night/week. 
      Are you a good fit?  If you enjoy playing your class very well, are reliable to be on at the given time(s), yearn for a fun PG atmosphere in Gchat and Discord with mostly adults, and feel like one (occasionally 2) night per week is ideal for the time you want to put into raiding then we may be a good fit for you.  We help others get better and have more fun in guild, raiding or not ( be it through Questing, M+, WQ's, Roics, Pet Battles, etc.). We know our members' backstory and strive to make our guild a family.  Very active FB page and Discord.  
      Schedule:   Current main core raid night is Thursday from 7:30 EST - 10:30 EST (Bloodhoof Server time).  Sunday nights are an alternative night for us.
      Progress:  7/7 (N) EN, 5/7 (H) EN
      Loot:  All Personal - hand down to people who need 
      NEEDS: 
      - Warlock (any spec)
      - Boomkin
      - Hunter
      - Arms Warrior w/ Prot offspec (another skilled dps that is comfortable off spec as Tank works well also (Feral/Guardian, WW/BM, etc.)
      Interested?:
      BTAG: Lorienawk#1319 or Mango#1525.  
      Thanks and Happy Hunting!
