Destruction Warlock and CC 5.0.4

4 posts in this topic

Hello! I'm new to Destruction Warlock. I am level 47 right now; but my dps will be high in one dungeon and low in another. I start my rotation with Immolate, then conflagrate, then Incinerate. I try to dot mobs with immolate, and then conflagrate, then focus on one with incinerate and throw up rain of fire. Chaos bolt where it applies. I read everywhere about rotations, tried making macros and they don't feel right. I key bound the rotation but sometimes point and click.

I say all this so you know where I am coming from. My question is about crowd control, how do I do it, and is it necessary before 85? Is fear part of CC'ing? I don't use fear because 1) I am afraid to send a enemy into another crowd, and 2) What good does it really do? I do use it when questing, and more than one enemy is attacking. Anyways, any advice would be appreciated. I have tried looking it up, and I seem to be more confused, maybe looking in all the wrong places. Thanks again.

Oh yeah I did get glyph of burning embers but that is all.

dont bother fearing. It will cause more wipes than any other CC. If you HAVE to CC, use either banish or seduce, but generally, CC isnt really necessary in dungeons.

You should ALWAYS be opening with Curse of the Elements. It gives you (and all other spellcasters) a flat 5% damage increase and is well worth the global cooldown.

Your rotation seems fine, and theres not a lot you can really do about it. DPS will vary greatly in levelling dungeons, especially when you get to a new dungeon with higher level mobs if your Hit Rating hasnt increased. Hover over your spell Hit in the character pane and it will tell you how much you will miss against mobs up to 3 levels higher than yourself.

Another factor is your secondary stats. When levelling, they are changing constantly due to new gear and are often FAR from optimal for your spec.

TBH, I wouldnt really worry about it. Levelling is levelling. You cant really assess things until you get to max lvl and start raiding.

Thank you. Every time I go into a dungeon, I worry that I'm blowing it. I tried Affliction, but I got complaints. Destruction seems more my type anyway. Again, thank you.

      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.

      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!
