Thinking its all going well till the other locks whisper

9 posts in this topic

Hey all,

 

I found help here once before which prompted me to become a metric ton of ***t better player and now hoping you can dispell my concerns.

 

Ive taken a little bit of a break before hand i completely felt i was in tune and rocking it and now come back still no issues however other Lock's whispering regarding my setup and subsequent debates make me wonder if in missing out.

 

Im not tipping the truck when it comes to fights and im matching the best of them, and will joining a new raid team this week and i just dont wanna be shooting myself in the foot for no reason.

 

could someone be kindly enough to have a look at the link below and see if theres anything i maybe scrimping on?

Major regards,

You're missing out on a lot of Int and Hit that can be reforged by gemming pure mastery in everything, not to mention socket bonuses.  Outside of gearing, the best way to see if you are up to par is to jump into a flex or lfr Malkorok kill and log it for us to analyze.  That will show how well you understand the rotation and allow us to point out anything that could use correcting.

First off using AMR isn't optimal. Secondly stats are the least important aspect of increasing DPS. If you want to improve we need logs preferably Warcraft logs and not worldoflogs. And third an armory link IMO would be better to check gemmimg/secondary stats better than AMR

Well, AMR has all the secondaries listed on the side, and has a pretty user-friendly UI. At least for viewing gear, gems, enchants, etc. As for optimizing secondaries using AMR, that takes more user input to know what stats are better and how they effect various aspects of the game. And the knowing how the weighting system works for AMR and how it influences the "optimized" build.

However you want to look at viewing secondaries, he is missing out on a good deal of int (~1k).

I'm looking at it on my tablet so AMR isn't the most user friendly for me

For gemmimg you are best served following AMR'S optimized choices. Just don't pay attention to the reforges unless you know your stat weights and adjust them

Gemming and reforging for Destruction is about as simple as it gets.

 

Hit: 15% and as little over as possible.

Mastery: As much as you can get

Haste or Crit after mastery: Doesn't really matter for destruction.  Aff/Demo will definitely be better off with more haste, mainly in getting to key breakpoints.

 

Whether int/mastery or expertise/mastery the difference will be so small, it won't matter.

 

As Calol mentioned, logs, rotation, doing the right thing matter a lot more.

 

The whole int/mastery | expertise/mastery and hast vs crit will be about a 1% difference, not worth worrying about.

I might cry - I'm so proud of my Warlock section!

 

To echo these two, focus on what you're doing, not what you look like.  You could have a fully BiS set list, but if you ignore the 4pc bonus or cast Chaos Bolt at silly times, you're not going to like the way you look - I guarantee it.
