Sac as Demo?

7 posts in this topic

Hi everyone. I posted in the warlock guide section a few days ago and haven't received an answer yet, so I thought I would try posting here.

I was re-reading the guide because I've been trying to maximize my damage with the UVLS trinket. I read in the guide that Grim of Sacrifice is recommended for single target fights? When does this become relevant (as in what ilvl)? I tried using simcraft, but grimoire of service still comes out way ahead.

I also had a question regarding imp swarm and UVLS. I've seen conflicting theories and just wanted someone to tell me what is better! Should I be using this glyph? When I use it, should I always pair it with Dark Soul or on CD? Or, would the imps generated via UVLS be more beneficial than using the glyph of imp swarm since wild imps aren't generated while the glyph is on CD?

Thanks in advance!

So far the theory is always using imp swarm and always using it with DS. As for using grim of sac according to sparkuggz, methods warlock, he only uses it on Jin Rokh, council, and ji-kun because it comes out ahead for short bursts such as pools and primal nutrient. Hope that helps.

What i read in the past was: The more imps you can spawn (more doom rolls with UVLS) the better GoSac gets. GoServ gives you the most control of burst, like destroying ball lightnings at Lei Shen HC.

Somewhere was mentioned that not all your followers profit from abilitys like the pool at jin rokh but i don't know which. I thought is was only minions that profit, like the imps and not the pets like doomguard/terrorguard.

Edit1: Found it here. The imps profit from pools at jin rokh - should be superior then GoServ since the normal pet don't stand in the pool.

Edit2: You can get good information in this topic unter the the jin rokh section.

Wild Imps are not pets, they are guardians and they don't benefit from pools.

All of the Grimoires have a special way to play that you must adapt to. They are not plug and play talents. They change your reforges, playstyle, and what you do in fights. Full Haste, close to BiS, and being given single target responsibilities makes Grim of Sac very powerful. For short busts of AoE, Supremacy tends to win out. For bursts of AoE every 2 mins, Service tends to win out, but remember that in the hands of a very skilled Warlock, the differences are VERY small. You're not going to switch a talent and see a 10k DPS change.

Thank you all for your replies. I really appreciate it!

With regards to imp swarm, should I only be using it while matching my Dark Soul cd, or should I be using imp swarm on its own cd?

      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

      Nomads is a social guild with a semi hardcore mythic raiding team at Quel'Thalas/Azjol-Nerub, our guild is one of the oldest on the server with 8 years under it’s belt.
      Our Progress: 7/7M EN, 2/3H ToV and +12-14 Mythics.
       
      We are a friendly social guild and We like to enjoy the game and see all of the content it has to offer.
       
      We do all of the mythics every week and also lots of m+ runs.
       
      Our raiding atmosphere is super chilled, we don't tolerate toxicity and bm of any kind.
      As a mythic raider you’re expected to be here for raids, doesn’t have to be all of them every week, but we need to know we can count on you when we need you.
       
      Our raid times are (server time): 
      Wednesday/Thursday/Sunday => 20:30 - 23:30 (mythic raids)
       
      We have bonus raids for farm content:
      Friday => 20:45 - 22:00 (EN heroic)
      Saturdays => 20:45 - 22:00 (EN normal)
      Mondays => 20:00 to 23:00-24:00 (ToV HC run)
       
      The team looks really strong and we’re want to fill out some missing spots in our Ranged DPS department,
      We’re mostly looking for Hunters/Mages and could also use a strong Warlock/ShadowPriest.
      For healers : any very good healer would do, pref Druid/Priest.
       
      Contact Us:
      Shamdi (Assistant Mythic team leader) => Mistere#2792

      We are currently 7/7M EN...3/3H ToV and our raid schedule is: Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday nights from 8-11 Server (CST). 
      website:  http://symbiosisofsargeras.shivtr.com/
      We are a stable guild who has been around for over 8 years now. New members have come and gone but raiding has always been the constant here. With veteran leadership and a strong core we continue to push forward in search of progressing as fast as we can each tier while still having fun and raiding a light schedule. That being said, we don't slouch either and we typically finish all the content while its relevant with significant progress into hard modes. Our median raid member age is somewhere around 25 and we tend to look for mature players. We like to have fun but we also know when its time to get down to business. As we only raid 9 hours a week we like to squeak out as many pulls as possible and be as efficient as we can with our time. We ask that our members show up early, fully repaired and with consumables ready to go. If you are looking for a stable guild who is continuously pushing for new progression kills then we might be the place for you.
