Best Destruction Weapon Enchant?

8 posts in this topic

AskMrRobot advises you to use Mark of the Shattered Hand (mastery) on your weapon and enchant everything else with Crit. Mark of the Thunderlord, however, not only gives you crit, but gives you a chance to extend the buff duration when you crit, which sounds good if you can cast chaos bolts.

What do you think is the best enchant for Destruction Warlocks?

I personally will be going with the Mastery one, but I do not really have any data to back that choice up with.

 

In Beta I tested the Crit one quite a lot as I felt with Demo, having this crit proc up would be amazing for Doom ticks...but it never seemed to perform as well as the mastery one.

 

Mastery gains a lot of value once you start adding cleave targets, and I plan to offspec Demo.  I intend to change my enchants tonight as well, from crit to mastery.

Mastery starts to really add in value to players that know how the fuck to play Destro.  That being said, the proc is really nice as a boost to Chaos Bolt as the proc crit in this case feels much stronger than static crit or even proc mastery because we have so few procs right now.  The only way I would see it lose value to the mastery enchant is if it is a high cleave or heavy Shadowburn fight as non crit Shadowburns are weak as fuck and mastery will be your only savior.

I've been using the crit one for the last raid. Uptime on it was pretty good (40% for the entire night) It gets extended quite a lot because you crit a lot as destro. If it wasn't so damn expensive i would try out the mastery one aswell :c

As far as I know, inv_misc_note_01.jpgMark of the Shattered Hand isn't the mastery enchant but the bleed effect, I'm using it as well because it is the one used by most of the top locks I've checked on the armory, will try the mastery proc if this one is nerfed tho

The main issue is that the Mastery proc is like 16x more expensive right now. Once I get a heroic weapon I'll put Bleeding Hollow (mastery) on it, but right now I just have 661ilvl weapon so not too fussed.

It isn't because it is better, it's because it's 1/20th the price. In two-three weeks when Temporals are plunging in price and more people have a weapon that is worth a good enchant the mastery/crit enchants will become a lot more common.

Thanks Locky, I thought that for some reason the SH might have had a bugged/unbalanced proc. I'll get my mastery enchant once I get a 670 weap then !

      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?...

      Hey guys,
       
      Just wondering peoples thoughts on the 20% Haste Minimum for UH DPS.
      Who thinks it is absolutely crucial?
      I am looking at a bunch of recent drops i have that are basically same ilvl. 
      I run castigator and all of the pieces i want to swap in, will give me loads more crit, but drop my haste from 20% down to 16%.
      how detrimental do you think this will be if i make the change? my crit will sit at almost 40% up from 32%.
      Thanks in advance,

      I use AMR to quickly get an idea of different gear upgrades pretty often. With the changes to mastery they have yet to really set up a new default stat weight and I didn't really like the stat weight they had before anyway. I know the priority of Vers>Haste>Mastery>Crit. This is more about the technical weights for AMR.
      Does anyone have any thoughts on what stat weighting they use for AMR or what the new weights should be?
      Thank you.

      Is too much mastery a thing? Gearing up for legion raiding, I've basically just been trying for item level and not worrying about stat priority. Now that I'm around 845+ ilvl I need to really start worrying about it. Right now I'm sitting at 104% mastery, 26% crit, and 4% haste. In 5 mans, this is awful, I really need to up my haste for sure, but what about for raids? I still think I can afford to drop mastery for haste and going off the sticky that talks about stats, I can probably afford to trade out crit for some haste as well. What levels are you guys looking to reach? I haven't played since cata and just came back for legion, are there still haste breakpoints you try to hit nowadays? Any help would be appreciated!
