What's your keybinds look like

13 posts in this topic

I am curious as to how everyone plays their warlock.

Personally, I use a mixture of key binds and clicking. #'s 1-5 is my core rotation, while I click my major CDs.

I never actually touch my keyboard while raiding (unless to type something) as I use a Razer Nostromo.

the 3 buttons down the left are mapped to tab, alt and shift, the thumb button is mapped to ctrl-rt.

I have my actionbars on-screen set up to look like the nostromo layout. Actionbars 1,2 and3 are all in 3 rows (2 rows of 4 and a row of 3)

my main dps spells are on the main bar. when I press the 'alt' key, my actionbar changes to AoE spells (actionbar 2), and when I press 'shift' it changes to defensive and self healing spells (Actionbar 3).

All my single-target spells are macroed so that pressing the 'ctrl-rt' button casts the spell on my focus target. (IF I have a focus target - if I dont, it sets my current target as my focus and casts the spell on it)

I only use the keyboard for movement, the tab button and the spacebar for jumping. For all else I use buttons on the action bar.

E - Malefic Grasp

Q - Haunt

1 - Unstable Affliction

2 - Agony

3 - Corruption

4 - Fel Flame

5 - Fear

R - Drain Soul

SR - Twilight Ward

G - Life Tap

SE - Soul Burn

X - Soul swap

V - Soul Shatter

Z - Portal Use

SZ - Portal Summon

A2 - Soulstone

SC - Shadowfury (This is a changing keybind based on my talents)

AZ - Dark Soul

AT - Dark Bargain

SX - Saved for trinket use/macros

AC - Rain of Fire

AF - Focus mouseover macro

S5 - Doomguard

S4 - In raids this is Unending resolve, other times it's my flying mount

S1, S2, S3 - These are constantly changed. If I will have a focus target for the whole boss fight (Elegon, WoE), these are UA, Agony, Corr on focus target so I don't have to change targets to refresh dots. If I don't need to use focus macros, these are subject to change. S1 isn't used that much in that case, S2 is AV, S3 is Burning Rush. On gara'jal S1 is use extra action button macro.

SF - Command Demon

ST - Use Healthstone

Mouse 3 - DPS potion

SV - Currently Curse of Exhaustion, but I usually have a talent spell there.

I have a real problem with demo keybinds, mainly due to the fact that I simply don't have to use as many keybinds and this results in some difficulties, mainly empty keybinds. I keep the same abilities at the same binds, like corruption is always at 3. Demo only has one dot in one stance, so it's gotta be 3 for me. And I can't feel comfortable if I put something in 1 or 2, since it takes a couple tries for me to get used to the affliction keybinds after extensive demo playing.

My alt keybinds also revolve around these ideas so I don't get confused when I play my alts a lot for some time.

      I understand the playstyle of pre patch demo, getting out as many demonbolts as possible, HoGing, then using Demonic Empowerment. However, since HoG has a slight travel time from the initial cast to when the imps actually register as down is it more beneficial to HoG, Demonbolt, THEN Demonic Empowerment? I know maintaining Demonic Empowerment is essential so Imps get as many casts as possible towards the 4 set proc, but if you follow a HoG with Demonic Empowerment are those Imps actually getting the empowerment if you're at high haste levels?

      So, I'm a warlock ilvl 665 right now, and I'm worried about my DPS, I'm not sure if it's low or not for my ilvl but it seems low compared to the data I saw on Noxxic, so I'm an affliction warlock, I respect the exact same rotation that Noxxic and Icy-veins show, and I'm getting around 20k DPS on training dummies, buffed with Grimoire of sacrifice, stone from highmaul and an elixir of intellect. I don't think that's good dps for my ilvl.
      My rotation is the following: I begin by using Soulburn : Soulswap so I apply my dots directly, then I cast Drain Soul as a filler, I refresh agony when it's = 7 seconds or a bit less, Corruption I refresh it when it's 5-6 seconds, Unstable corruption refresh at 4-5 seconds. I'm never gonna use a soulburn on a regular haunt unless a nightfall procs like directly after I apply my Soulburn : Haunt, I'll mainly save up my soul shards for Soulburn then haunt, so 2+ soul shards and it's mainly when I have the Soulburn: Haunt buff up that I pop Dark Soul: Misery (I'm not sure when to use it so I use it at that time)
       
      So to go straight to the answers/advices I need
      1. Is this good/normal/bad DPS for my ilvl as an Affliction Warlock (Buffs: HM stones, Draenic potion, Grimoire of Sacrifice)
      2. Should I play Affliction at my ilvl or another spec such as Destro
      3. Is there any problems with my talents? I don't think my gears really matters since I'm pretty low ilvl but am I missing something?
      4. And maybe advices, etc... you know what I mean, thanks in advance
      5. Is there something wrong with my rotation? If yes, could you tell me how to improve it please.
      Bonus question: Is the legendary questline still worth doing, even if Legion comes out in 1 month and a half?

      (And, it's my first Icy-veins forum so idk how to put logs, sorry.)
