Just Curious how you all are handling applying Doom when there is only a 4sec window. I mean you got plenty going on that if I'm in the middle of a cast etc by the time I meta and rdy to cast a doom out one target is about all I'm having time for. Was thinking bout a macro of some sort but I'm not sure what command would allow me to keep casting multi target dooms. Anyways, any input here would be great:)

Hey GFR, good question. I was faced with this dilemma when i first got the trinket and i solved it was by tying a stopcasting macro into my Meta like this:

/stopcasting

/cast Metamorphosis

Cast meta as soon as u get the proc so it will stop casting and put u in meta immediatly with one button. Its pretty simple but it works for me. I also have a weak auras setup to alert me right when my trinket procs so i can hit meta to get 3 dooms in usually. Im not a hardcore raider or a min-maxer but I hope this helps Posted Image

Yes thx! I forgot about the stop cast command. Will add it :) I'm not a hardcore either but I do try and rock the lock. Cheers!

I actually have stop cast bound to my middle mouse button, and by now it's simply a reflex than when I see my big, pink Weak Aura pop up to hit my middle mouse button, then 7 and 1 to go Meta and use Doom. But, that aside, you were about how to find the time to get in more than one Doom. Let's look at it this way.

The worst case scenario is your trinket procs right as you start casting a spell. Begin your four second timer. Aside from hard-casting Soulfire (which I'm going to assume you know not to ever do), the longest cast you're going to have is Shadow Bolt at 2 seconds at 0% haste. Meta doesn't use the GCD, and Doom is an instant cast which then triggers the GCD, 1.5 seconds 0% haste. Because instant casts happen and THEN trigger the GCD, you can fit another Doom in with half of a second left. Timewise, it looks like this:

0.00: Perfect Aim procs.

0.00: Begin casting Shadow Bolt

2.00: Shadow Bolt casts

2.00: Cast Meta

2.00: Cast Doom

3.50: Cast Doom

4:00: Perfect Aim ends

That's at 0% Haste. If you're at the 12.5% haste threshold (3046 haste IIRC), you will actually be casting that second Doom at 3.11 seconds. If you're at the 25% threshold (8096), you cast the second Doom at 2.80 on the clock, and the second GCD ends right at 4.00. Were you casting Soulfire instead of Shadow Bolt, you'd have enough time to get a third Doom in if you're at the 25% threshold.

The biggest thing to do to help get your reactions up to speed is to make sure whatever addons you use have a way of very quickly and obviously notifying you of the proc. I use Weak Auras and have a big, pink, spinning runic circle centered around my character. Many warlocks on here, who raid in very serious progression guilds, do the same thing. Some also include an audio alert to it (like a siren) to give the extra stimulus to trigger the reflex. Since Meta doesn't use the GCD, you can also macro this:

/stopcasting

/cast Metamorphosis

/cast Doom

/cast Metamorphosis

/cast Doom

Hi there.

I'm pretty sure this macro doesn't work because while you use doom the server still thinks you're not in meta yet so you have to put "corruption".

I'm pretty sure you're having issues with applying doom to multiple targets such as council. I found a super awesome macro here on the forum, actually 4!

I did bind them to F1-F4.

#showtooltipDoom

/stopcasting

/cast [form:0]Metamorphosis;[form:1]

/cast [@boss1] Corruption

Just smash the hell out of this macro as soon as you get a procc and you'll have doom applied very fast. If you have multiple targets, just change the boss1 to boss2. For council, I have 4 macros (on F1-F4 as I said).

#showtooltipDoom

/stopcasting

/cast [form:0]Metamorphosis;[form:1]

/cast [@boss1] Corruption

#showtooltipDoom

/stopcasting

/cast [form:0]Metamorphosis;[form:1]

/cast [@boss2] Corruption

#showtooltipDoom

/stopcasting

/cast [form:0]Metamorphosis;[form:1]

/cast [@boss3] Corruption

... etc. You get the idea!

Good luck bro!

Hi there.

Good catch! The macros you have work as well, though I'm not a fan of a macro I have to change every encounter. Adjust the one I wrote as

#showtooltip Corruption

/stopcasting

/cast [form:0] Metamorphosis

/cast [@focus, mod: alt] Corruption; Corruption

It will now correctly halt any spells, enter meta if you're not in it, and apply doom immediately to your target, or your focus if you hold alt (I use alt for most macro modifiers, but shift or ctrl will also work). For @boss1, @boss2, etc... I've never seen that. Do you have to replace those with the boss names or change it to whichever boss is where? I would get terribly confused remembering which boss is which number in a four-boss encounter like Council or, worse, an encounter with a boss you can't target like Magaera. To each, his own.

No you don't have to fill in the bossnames, well you could of course. You don't have to put names because boss1 would be sul on council, lul'in on twins (if im right) etc. This macro is basically perfect for the council opener, spam F1-F4 and have doom on all 4 without any worries and clicking rampage. If there's only one boss I just use the first one. Btw, i'm pretty sure this works on qon hc aswell, talking about last phase with so much going on + a sudden lei shen proc. F1-F4 and you're safe!

Cheers.

      Hello everyone,
       
      First of all here is my armory link : http://eu.battle.net/wow/en/character/archimonde/Felantril/simple
      So I recently got some trinkets and I'm pretty confused about which one I should take, I looked at the comparison on here but it didn't really help, I hope you guys can.
      Here are the trinkets I have equipped at the moment :
      860 Thrice-Accursed Compass (1,353 Agility, 322 Critical Strike, Haste and Mastery)
      880 Tempered egg of Serpentix (1,631 Agility)
      And in my bags I have :
      850 Stormsinger Fulmination Charge (1,233 Agility)
      865 Eye of Skovald (986 Critical Strike)
       
      I do not care about the item level at all, I think it's worth saying.
      Can you help me figuring out which trinket should I use? 
      Thanks !

      So,
      Which trinket should I be using (obviously arms warriors are not concerned with iLvl because Mastery is desired over strength.
      I have the 820 iLvl trinket from a timewarped dungeon and that with heroism, Battle Cry, Potion, trinket use, could provide an extreme amount of dps burst which is also on a 1.5m CD. It seems like an obvious choice but I wanted to hear any thoughts or opinions that people have since I'll be losing 500+ static mastery. Also, the use effect gives around 20-24% increased damage during colossus smash. 
      Thoughts?...

      Greetings everyone!
      I'm trying to figure out if Aran's Relaxing Ruby ( http://www.wowhead.com/item=142157/arans-relaxing-ruby&bonus=3453%3A3453 ) is viable for Enhancement.
      There are 2 particular moments about it:
      Does it scale with our mastery as other trinkets or no (because it doesn't increase written damage on it)
      Does it proc often from all our attacks + according to changes in 7.1.5 on the PTR soon we will be running all with fury of air - that means even more magic attacks per second. 
      What do you think about that trinket?
      P.S. at the moment I still don't have one that's why can't test it
    • By Sparkmonth
      I'm currently using Bloodthirsty Instinct (865) and Eye of Command (860). These two trinkets have worked up a good job so far but today I got Tirathon's Betrayal (880) from the bounty cache. Do you think I should change my Eye of Command with it? Kinda in the dilemma here. Any help is appreciated!

      So I got this 835 Meteorite Whetstone in a timewalker dungeon. Can't find any info on it anywhere. 
      How good is it really? Seems like it could be pretty damn good
