[pvp] affliction warlock optimisation

3 posts in this topic

Hey guys,

I haven t seen much threads about the lock in pvp situations so here I am.

As arena affliction warlocks I was actually wondering which stats should we focus on ?

First answer that comes to mind is mastery ofc, it ups all the damage. However, I ve seen many top locks on the ladder going for full haste on stuff and enchants (even taking the ashran pieces versatility/haste). An another top lock, Maldiva is full mastery (even on his staff enchant) tho. Other locks are hybrid, half haste half mastery. It s tough to see a pattern,

In my opinion Haste should be better becoz of the passive that grants us 5% more haste from all sources + the overall haste buff. Even more on this "kick oriented" meta.

So a pvp stuff full haste + some warforged mythic pieces with +50 mastery gems on them would be the optimal stuff imo (let me think also what u guys think of pve stuff in pvp ! :>)

Let me know what you guys think on this matter even if it seems that this forum is pretty much pve oriented.

I've never seen anyone PvP oriented on these forums so you might be asking the wrong people. *I* would never do arenas on my warlock but if I were to do them I would say that I would likely stack haste, passive buff, good damage, better for self heal, etc. But I've never seen secondarys matter much in PvP so I don't think it will make or break anything.

      Undaunted Gaming League is a family based guild, that means most of us have families and careers and are unable to play WoW at all times, that is recruiting players to band together for core teams. We would like to form teams for arena, RBG's, Daily Mythic dungeons, raid progression, gold making, and even battle pets. Even if you are a casual player that is looking to socialize, or want a team to work together on professions, we would like to help you help us. 
      http://undauntedgamingleague.enjin.com/home is our guild site, feel free to stop by to fill out an application and email a guild member for an invite. If you would like additional information, please message a player in game or myself directly darkmograine#1675

      I have three trinkets to choose from, Two from Mythic EN, Heightened Senses @ 880, Vial of Nightmare Fog @ 880, and finally from Nightbane Kara i have the Ethereal Urn @875. If any other experienced resto shamans could weigh in and help me make a decision it would be appreciated.

      So I was fortunate enough to get mantle of command last night, and ran some quick sims. Based on my sims, it would seem that crit has over taken haste in the stat priority when using mantle of command. So stat priority is as follows:
      agi > mast > crit > haste > vers
       
      I haven't calculated weights, but the difference in simulations was significant. I'll leave the weight calculating to others. The idea is that with mantle of command and the changing function of dire beast, it is more advantageous to get more dire beasts from crit, than reducing the CD through haste. Maybe someone else can confirm this also.
