Warlock Timer addons

13 posts in this topic

Ok, been seeing a few vids on youtube.com and I'm noticing that some players are using a addon I believe that shows dot duration on the target frames where the debuffs show up. Anyone happen to know what its called?

There are a few DoT addons. You could use whatever unit frames you're using to show debuffs, or something like ForteXorcist. I personally use Forte right now and have it configured to show my DoTs on every target (ones that I'm not targeting are kind of faded out) and I've placed it above my target's frame, so I can see what time is left.

Without being more specific I can't be of more help :( Can you link one of the videos that you're looking at so somebody can point out the addon?

Affdots will incorporate itself into your unit frames. You might have to use pit bull unit frames, not sure. Anyway, you should be using affdots if your not...no lock is complete without it!

I use elvui that shows my dot times. Also use affdots. You can change affdots to a bar style and it will give the same duration style cast bar along with all the other awesome info it gives. Affdots gives you current strength of your dots if you where to refresh along with times left on current dots. It's an excellent tool for getting the most out of your procs.

Ah yes I forgot about AffDots (which is funny because I use it; where's my Shivarra to beat me?). I wasn't too big a fan of the bar style though, but I might go back to it. Not to derail the OP but if I'm using AffDots, then I should use those bars instead of ForteXorcist right? I mean, I like how Forte can show ALL targets, not just the current target (makes it a bit easier to see "oh hey I have to refresh the dots on X"), but it seems a bit redundant to use two tracking addons, right?

Any demo or destro lock says herro.

I use custom weakauras to track my dots because I'm cool and shiat.

I use Affdots as Demo and Destro. I find it easier to track Immolate's damage, even if it is a minor change. Continued habit, I guess. However, it's VERY beneficial for Demonology. It puts a "c" by the spell power coefficient for Doom to let you know you have a 100% Crit Doom on that target. This is invaluable for multi-target fights. It also lets you track Corruption. If you time it right, refreshing Doom and Corruption with Perfect Aim lets you use one global on Touch of Chaos to extend/buff Corruption. If you cancel Meta at that time and go back to your caster rotation, Corruption will tick at 100% Crit as well as whatever else it was empowered with. Affdots tracks this, as well.

Is there an addon that tracks whether or not a mob is being hit by rain of fire? ForteXorcist and Affdots both only track the rain of fire buff on you. I ask, because sometimes a boss does not have to be right on top of the rain of fire to get hit, see megaera; where you can rain of fire in between the head and still have them both get hit.

Not that I know of, but there probably is. Honestly for that specific case I'd just queue up for LFR and practice placement. Cast only RoF and see if numbers pop up over their heads.

Technically, according to the game, they are right on top of the RoF. The only reason they hit is because they're hit box is massive. But, yea..

As for tracking if RoF is actively ticking on something, I just have my elvui set to display the RoF debuff on my current target, so I know when it isn't there o.o.

      *Affliction Lock - Orc, ilevel 885, 38 artifact traits*
      1600-1700 2's rating: with a Resto Shaman
      1800+ 3's rating: with a Resto Shaman/DH
      Pets: Fel Hunter (Permanent) then: Inferno stun / Fel hunter
       
      My question is how do you play with your lock in 2's vs 3's strategy?
      --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
      (1). Do you just outlast and wait for dampening? spread pressure, UA+Drain when you can, and try and outlast with:
       
      Talents: Writhe / Absolute / Howl / Siphon / Demon / Service / Phantom ?
       
      Honor Talents: Relentless / Mind Quickness / Tongues or Weakness / Nether / Deaths Embrace / Amplify ?
      ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
      (2). OR do you try to set up burst windows? with some what spread pressure    (its hard to get dots on both healer/dps) but CC chain the healer and burst with UA + Drain on the DPS for a kill window? with:
       
      Talents: MG / Absolute / Howl / Siphone / Demon / Service / Phantom?
       
      Honor Talents: Relentless / Mind Quickness / Tongues or Weakness / Nether / Deaths Embrace / Amplify ?
      ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
      For 3's I do the (1) for the spread pressure since its hard for the healer to maintain, but for 2's I keep trying (1) and (2), I just cant seem to find the right way to climb in 2's
      ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
      Any advice on talents/honor talents or play style for Affliction in 2's or 3's? or anything you try with your healers? I'm open for suggestions and talent changes
       
      thank you.

      Hello,
      Adelante is currently recruiting DPS & Heals, however, all competent players will be considered.  We are a Horde guild on Arthas and our current progression is 1/10M NH, 10/10H NH 6/7M EN and 3/3H TOV.  As far as classes go we do not have a Moonkin, Mage, Feral Druid, or any type of Monk. We only raid two nights a week, Tuesday and Wednesday from 7:00 PM until 11:00 PM Eastern.  Thursday is not considered a raid night, but we will often clear Heroic and Normal on this evening for AP and it is not required. We are pushing progression on Il'gynoth, and look forward to finishing off EN then moving on to Nighthold, we will be intermittently working on Mythic TOV.
      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, please PM me (violentravi#1826) or recruiting officer Sepsis (tuxedomask#1712) in game.  However, if you have time (which goes a long way) for us to give you a real evaluation there is a short forum to fill out linked on our discord: https://discord.gg/JMVuYRW
       
      Thank you for your consideration
      Xoxo

      Introdution:
      <Turkeyism> is a (7/7M EN) (2/3M ToV) (3/10M NH) weekend raiding guild on Stormrage US. Our guild was originally formed in early 2013 as a 10man Heroic raid team with the goal to have fun and get as far as possible. After having defeated Heroic Garrosh in Siege of Ogrimmar and ending the Mists of Pandaria expansion ranked 19th on Stormrage, our team decided to push forward into Warlords of Draenor. With the introduction of Mythic in 6.0, our team set out to expand our roster, overcome new challenges, and defeat the final boss on Mythic, all while maintaining a fun atmosphere to raid in. We finished Warlords of Draenor ranking 14th on Stormrage and managed to get 27 of our raiders the Felsteel Annihilator mount from Mythic Archimonde. We are now currently raiding Mythic Nighthold and looking for additional players (870 ilvl+) who seek a challenge and want to have fun.
      Raid Times:
      Friday: 7:30pm – 11:30pm EST
      Saturday: 7:30pm – 11:30pm EST
      <Turkeyism> is a weekend raiding guild that raids two nights a week from 7:30 – 11:30pm EST on Friday and Saturdays.
      In Demand Classes:
      Paladin (Holy/ret)
      Druid (Balance)
      Priests (Shadow)
      Hunters (Marksmen/Beastmaster)
      Warlocks (Affliction/Demonology)
      Monks (Mistweaver/Windwalker)
      (We prefer the classes listed above but all exceptional applicants will be considered.)
      Guild Expectations:
      So as a guild there are a few things we expect our raiders and recruits to do/know.
      First, we expect our raiders/recruits to know their class fairly well. They should also have a good grasp of the encounters by either having first-hand experience, or by watching tutorials and kill videos online. Knowledge is power as the saying goes.
      Second, we expect players who wish to be part of the core raid team to understand that attendance and showing up on time to raid is important to the success of the guild. We understand when real life issues come up, however it isn’t fair to the other 19 players who showed up if you continuously miss raid because of “reasons”. This is why we want to make sure that our raiders/recruits understand that by joining our raid team, you are making a commitment to the rest of the group to show up every week. Ultimately, we are all individuals working together towards a common goal and our success or failure as a group depends upon people committing to the team.
      Third, we expect our raiders/recruits to be able to take criticism from others. If we notice that you could improve in any manner, we won’t hesitate to point it out. We won't ever attack others for making mistakes, but we will politely let them know of their blunders and how they could improve.
      Fourth, raiders/recruits should be willing to sit out for certain encounters. We know it isn’t the most fun thing to have to sit out on a boss fight, especially if there is loot or if you’ve worked hard getting to that encounter. However, not all fights are created equal and sometimes we have to ask players to sit out in order to have the best group composition to complete the encounter. Your willingness to sit out won’t be forgotten and we try to make sure that everyone gets a chance to kill the boss and get loot.
      Fifth, all recruits are expected to present WarcraftLogs in their applications. This will give us an idea of how you handle mechanics and how well you performed. We understand that your time is valuable and so is ours. By looking at your WarcraftLogs we can get an idea if you can perform within the required range were looking for before bringing you in to raid with us.
      Finally, our guild is made up of players in their early 20’s/mid-30’s and our chat can sometimes get spicy and very adult oriented. We can sometimes talk about off the wall stuff, some of which can get very “Rated R” very fast.
