So which part are you failing at? What talents are you using? What is your current ilvl?

healers,wave 5 or 6 is where i falter,my ilvl is 612,my talents are soul leech,shadowfury,soul link,GoSer,kil'jaeden's cunning,and demonic servitude

im using demonic servitude mostly because the felhound does not pump out enough dps to even clear wave 3

I am assuming you are using doomguard for your pet. Make sure you have command demon ability on your bar. With Doomguard it is an interrupt that you can use on the healer. The stun from Shadow fury will also interrupt the healer if he still isn't dead but you should only have to interrupt him once.

 

I feel you always prioritize the healer, then the amber weavers. Remember that the you can use the amber to help as well. When you get to the last phase use the Ambers to trap the healer. If you are running from ambers get dots  spread to all the mobs then demonic leap to get a big gap and get some hard casts in. With your talent choices do not forget to use that second pet!

i semirelibly getting to wave six now,but i just can't seem to pump out dps to take out the tank and healer even with spot on interrupts and cooldowns,im using the second pet as a secondary spell lock and well,it's ok but the dps the hound puts out seems like nothing

its also doesn't help my hands start to shake more and more the deeper I get into it

You're playing demo (the worst spec) using fel puppy (the worst pet) in 612 gear, 3 below what the lowest scaling is built for in PG. IMO unless you have mad god mode skills, you have no hope.

 

In order to do this as demo you need more gear. A very good weapon would be ideal.

 

To do this at your gear level you need to be destro.

i almost had it,i was just one half a second from my last chaos bolt hitting the lst mob and knocking it down on wave 8 when time ran out on try 415,i have to ask does this scale with ilvl or is it just one difficulty no matter what ilvl you are?

It scales with ilvl, with a base scaling of 615. 

 

So if you are 715, it scales up for 715. But if you are 600 it does not scale DOWN past 615. So if you are 600 you are still facing mobs scaled for 615.

thanks for the info, i'll try and get to exactly 615 then  considering i've come so close twice now it is possible but it always comes down to the luck of the draw on which way those damn shield mobs end up facing,its bad enough i still sometimes fail on wave one if i get unlucky with it,but most of the time i'm at least getting to wave six.

      A few days ago I posted a cheap priest deck. I have no idea how many actually have been interested in it but maybe we had some none registered visitors who knows. So here another deck. Again inspired by Chump but I had a similar deck before. Compared to Chumps' version I replaced 2x Twilight Summoner with 2x Spawn of N'Zoth (beause Epics are not budget :D) and I didn't want to craft Forbidden Ritual myself so I've put in 2 commons instread, Mortal Coil and Zealous Initiate.
      It's technically a Zoo but it plays differently which is a nice change to the "we know it all" stuff :)
      Total Arcane Dust Cost: 1500
      2x Flame Imp 1x Mortal Coil 2x Possessed Villager 2x Sanguine Reveler 2x Voidwalker 1x Zealous Initiate 2x Dire Wolf Alpha 2x Volatile Elemental 2x Darkshire Councilman 2x Devilsaur Egg 2x Spawn of N'Zoth 2x Unwilling Sacrifice 1x Void Terror 2x Ravenous Pterrordax 1x Cobalt Scalebane 2x Despicable Dreadlord 2x Bonemare Deck Code: AAECAf0GBMQIxQmNrQLKywINMNkHwgi0rAL2rgKNrwLnwQKrwgK0xAKXywL3zQKmzgKJ4gIA
      Guide:
      This deck is basically a Zoo, you can find a well written guide here, but maybe somewhat slower and less reliable due to the fact that you need to combo with your deathrattle cards but the value you get out of them should make up for it. As with any Zoo deck you want to put early pressure on your opponent and establish board control with cheap minions and playing on curve.
      In your starting hand you want to see a couple of 1 mana minions and a 2 (and/or maybe a 3 mana cost) mana cost to put something on the board and plan for your next turns. Flame Imp is always a good choice as well as Sanguine Reveler and a 1, 2 or maybe a 3 mana deathrattle minion to combo with. Against more aggressive decks a Voidwalker could be a good choice as well, against slower decks you might consider to keep a Devilsaur Egg. To be able to play a Darkshire Councilman on turn 3 is great too.
      You have good tools to maintain board control (besides the minions you already have) like Volatile Elemental which has great synergy with your cannibal cards like Ravenous Pterrordax. Unwilling Sacrifice is a bit like Deadly Shot and needs accurate play to be not a waste but the potential value you can get out of it is great. And later in the game Despicable Dreadlord helps a lot to maintain board control.
      Have fun :)

      Hello,
      The Sworn is recruiting DPS.  We are a Horde guild on Arthas and our current progression is 4/9 Mythic TOS.  We only raid two nights a week, Tuesday and Wednesday from 9:05 PM until 12:05 AM Eastern.  Currently, our main goal is to push Mythis TOS progression versus clearing farmed content, please keep this in mind if you wish to join us.
      From you, we would expect 100% attendance during your trial period; after that if you cannot make a raid or will be late it is mandatory to keep the raid leader updated.  In order to continue making good progression while raiding only two nights a week, we expect that you know your class inside-out and will research any bosses you are unfamiliar with prior to raids.
       If you are interested, you can either reply to this thread and link your most recent combat logs for review or hit me up on battlenet, Violentnacho, recruiting officer (violentravi#1826.
      Thank you for your consideration
      Xoxo

      Hi I'm looking for an active raid guild. I am not a hardcore raider but would like to continue with normal/ heroic progression. 
      I'm looking for raid time around 6pm PST / 9pm EST start. Will consider faction change for the right fit. 

      9/9 Normal 9/9 Heroic - Multiple kills

      Hey guys,
      I'm new to playing affliction lock and ranged DPS in general really. Can someone help me see why my DPS isn't where it should be? I've changed my stats around and have been playing with my legendaries and rotation but I can't seem to improve. If someone has some ideas it would be much appreciated.

      Maximum Effort is a new guild on Cenarion circle (A). I was the raid leader for my guild for a long time and we built up a strong raid team. Due to do some dis-agreements between me and the guild leader I was forced to leave. But luckly enough a lot of my team followed me! We're working to build a guild focused around team work and group progression. We love doing mythics, raids, talking and theory crafting about the game!
      We have a very strong-core raid group, capable of clearing heroic and doing some mythic but we're just missing a few people to round it out!
      Raid nights.. Tue/wed 6-830pm server (9:30-11:30 est) Off night Monday 6-830pm server (9-11:30 est)
      Looking for.. -Any and all dps specs
      - Non pally or holy priest healer!
      All raid mats and needs are covered by guild, we run personal look just for the ease of it.
      My btag is Hethrus#1504 if you have questions or wish to try out!
