Warlock aoe addons help

3 posts in this topic

Do you use a base add-on type like TukUI, ElvUI, or DuffedUI? If not, I heavily suggest you get this overall add-on UI. It provides what you are looking for by putting your DoT icons above targets' heads. I use it when playing Affliction by tracking Unstable Affliction, Corruption, and Bane of Agony. I believe Tidybars is another add-on that allows the use of DoT icons to appear over targets, but I've fallen too much in love with the TukUI family. The guys at Icy-Veins play with ElvUI, and once you see it, you'll understand why. I can take a screenshot or two of my UI when I get home to show you how the multi-dotting tracking works with DuffedUI.

A gameplay tip is to never change targets by clicking things unless you are changing to something more than 30 yards away. Use your Tab key to switch through targets to shave off tenths of seconds on your DoT application time.

Ok thanks for the great answer! i'm curious to see the screenshots of your unit frames..

      There are several ways to attach custom sounds to events and abilities. The easiest way is to use the TellMeWhen addon:
      This addon has a huge amount of features, and can be overwhelming to try and figure out, but it's definitely worth the effort, because you can track almost anything with it.
      Basic idea is to create a new icon, that will show on "succesfful cast" combat event, and play a custom sound when that happens. You don't actually need the icon to show up, so check "always hidden" checkbox. 
      WeakAuras is a popular alternative that can do this as well.
      1. Sounds for activating and deactivating Trueshot and any other burst:
      These are stored in WoW files, so you don't need to download them, just use these sound paths in TellMeWhen.
      2. Marksmanship Hunter Sound Pack (12 files)
      Includes: Aimed Shot, Piercing Shot, Counter Shot, Binding Shot (one sound for cast, one for stun), Black Arrow, Arcane Shot, Multi Shot, Bursting Shot, Bloodlust (Heroism, etc), Chimaera Shot (remnant of the old days).
      You can configure TellMeWhen yourself or just import this group:

      3. More sound files (29 files)
      Includes: gunshot and blaster sounds, weapon loading sounds, shattered glass. Possible sound effects for A Murder of Crows, Stampede, Kill Command, Cobra Shot.
      4. Classic WoW Gunshot Sounds
      Warlords of Draenor replaced classic gunshot sounds with new, terrible, muffled sounds. To bring old sounds back, just put the sound files into this folder: World of Warcraft\Sound\Spells
      This is just an example of what I'm using. I encourage all of you to seek your own custom sounds that would make your gameplay more epic and unique.

      Personaly i no longer love warlocks.
      I dont think they are fun anymore and here are my reasons
      Why i wont play Warlock in Legion:
      - clumsy gameplay mechanics : which will not be changed until next major updates, if we're lucky
      - visual not being updated: aka Green Fire visuals
      - lazy talents : taking baseline spells to go in our talents, while other classes got new ones
      - unnecessary pruning : bye bye water walking warlock mount, bye bye Dark Soul
      - ramp up time : in demonology for example, you have at least 14 seconds before STARTING doing your average damage
      - aoe : Destruction was aoe king in Mop, now we have to gimp our solo damage to do aoe when others classes don't have to (hello to you fire mages)
      - RNG ressource gathering : a secondary ressource, necessary to our dps rotation tied to RNG (except for Demono)
      - RNG mastery : Chaos Bolt, Destruction's big hit spell, now hit like a wet noodle if you're not lucky
      - ZERO communication from Blizzard : many of these problems have been said since Alpha and there have been zero response or explanation from Blizzard, hence people getting the feeling their feedback goes in the trash can.
      So what do you guys think about warlocks in legion?
    • By ralle127
      I wonder what spec I should use on Legion levling from 100-110 because I got no set bonuses or the warlock trinket! and yeah I am new to the game but have learned the warlock rotations kinda.
