I believe Havoc is actually affected by LoS now. Unsure about range.

Great guide.  I believe Blizzard stated that they will be nerfing all WoD trinkets in the pre-patch notes, so those trinket rankings may change!

Really nice guide! But I`ve one  question respetice the opening sequence: How  should it  be  possible  to  pre-cast incinerate an immolate ahead pull?

Thanks for answers.

How can we find the WoD guide? As Legion isn't out yet...this isn't really helping me as I'm currently levelling a Warlock

It's gone :( The pre-patch is live in the US and will be live in Europe tomorrow.

Just wondering if you can clear something up quick. On the 'Sat Priority' section you list Mastery as last, yet under the trinket recommendation you say to look for Haste and Mastery on gear?

Heya, this is basically just because Haste and Mastery are the best stats if you plan on trying out multiple specs on the prepatch. If you plan on purely playing Destruction alone, focus on Haste and Crit only.

How do you precast those spells?  I don't understand

The same way you cast normally. Pre-cast simply means to cast before engaging in boss combat - the incineration spell, for example, has a long enough travel time that if you stand at max range from the boss it won't impact until the boss is pulled (assuming you follow the timings in the opening sequence correctly).

Why is mastery so bad? If you compare it to crit you get 1,5%dmg (for your spells only) out of mastery and some dmg reduce where you get 1%crit (you and your pet) and more dmg through chaos bolt. But at my test my pet only does ~15% from my total damage, so could at be that important? And event versatility should be better than mastery? What do i miss on my thoughts at mastery compared to crit and vers??

It's extremely inconsistent, doesn't do as much for your Immolate, and doesn't scale with pets.

It's slightly better but you need a large stack of mobs for it to be worth the shard cost.

Not at all, heavily outperformed by Conduit.

Haste, as it says in the guide.

I have a question about servitude and sacrifice. Do we know which is better yet? In addition if using servitude is doomguard worth bringing out every 3 minutes or is spamming as many chaos bolts as possible a better idea?

This spell is pretty useless other than just for healing while questing, or if you're about to die.

Can you clarify? If you're using Servitude, Doomguard is your permanent pet, so I'm confused what "every 3 minutes" has anything to do with your rotation. Generally speaking though, Sacrifice and Service are even in the prepatch depending on the encounter, while Servitude trails noticeably behind.

How much haste and crit value should one aim for. Example I switch between gears before pre-patch for affl/destro. I tried to play with haste gear (10℅ crit, 32℅ haste, 98℅ Mastery) on mythic gorefeind. Looking at the logs I am thinking I was worse decision. Just need a ball park estimate

As much as you can, as Haste is the best stat for all three Warlock specs.

      Patch 7.2 added several new Warlock Pet glyphs and we're looking at how to get them!
      Glyph of the Shadow Succubus
      There's a succubus standing near Tehd Shoemaker. She's called Syaith. If you're a scribe and /kiss her, you'll get Technique: Glyph of the Shadow Succubus. The trick is she only appears during the World Quest "Where There is a Whip...". You don't need to have Broken Shore World Quests unlocked to get it according to many reports from redditors that were able to find her.

      Credits go to redditor Sonotmethen
      Here are some tips from redditors!
      Comment from discussion Scribs can get Glyph of the Shadow Succubus for free today!. It seems you don't even need to be max level or have Inscription maxed out to get the pattern. Comment from discussion Scribs can get Glyph of the Shadow Succubus for free today!. Glyph of the Fel Succubus
      Technique: Glyph of the Fel Succubus seems to be a random drop from Cathedral of Eternal Night.
      The current version of the Fel Succubus is bugged (thanks to @Plaguestorm for pointing out), which results in a much weaker version of the regular Succubus pet in terms of damage output. It's advised not to use it until the issues get hotfixed.
      Comment from discussion Protip: Glyph of Shadow Succubus is obtainable right now..
      Glyph of Wrathguard
      Technique: Glyph of Wrathguard can be purchased from the Armies of Legionfall Quartermaster Warmage Kath'leen for 2,500 Nethershards.

      A lot of players look back fondly on the days of Vanilla, but what if we were too look back even further, let's say into the Nintendo Entertainment System era, and see what the game would be like then? Rkade Soup went ahead and made that alternate reality possible, perhaps with the help of Kairoz, and shared this great 8 bit re-imagining.
