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!

Thanks for answers.

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.

      Location: – Horde – US Connected Realms: The Venture Co - Maelstrom - Lightninghoof
       
      About us:
      Converge has been around since WoW Vanilla and has been raiding together since Molten Core; most of our members have been playing together for years. In its older days, when most of us where young, we were more raid focused and demanded a lot from our members. Over the years we had to adjust our playtime and priorities with a growing list of RL responsibilities and are now a two day raiding guild; we had to cut our total hours spent playing WoW but we still remain just as competitive and result oriented.
       
      Mandatory reading.
      Basics: be ilvl 890+; 52+ points in MS Artifact Weapon.
      Raiding 101: be able to execute/avoid fight mechanics; communicate in English and use a microphone.
      We raid twice a week, a total of 6 hours; attendance of 90% is mandatory. We require you to function at 100% from the second the raid starts all the way to its end; if you cannot commit to a raiding schedule and be online on time this is not a guild for you.
      Currently we are trying to build up our roster to start Mythics.
       
      Raid Times: 8:00 PM – 11:00 AM Eastern Time – Monday/Tuesday.
       
      Recruitment: Ranged DPS / Heals / Melee DPS (Rogues only)
       
      Legion Progression:
      EN 7/7 Heroic
      ToV 3/3 Heroic
      NH 10/10 Heroic
      ToS 4/9 Heroic

      Contacts:  
      BTag: Shig#1825
       
      *Do not send PMs, get in touch in-game; do not contact unless you are ready to transfer if accepted for a permanent raid spot.

We are 10 /10 Heroic Nighthold (10/10 N NH in about 1 1/2 hours) (Providing we arent cutting up and getting yelled at.... by a certain mage in our guild.... who cuts up too.... and won't admit it..... and puts down fake portals.... every week..... and people still take them.... to their death..... really......week..... after week.... to their death...... seriously)
      As always we are recruiting raiders and non raiders.
      *****GIRLS***** We have a large number of female gamers who do not have to worry about harrasment of any kind...we just will not tolerate this... and our group is like family. Come see for yourself!
      Tired of the ridiculous harassment from the opposite sex? You will be safe with us! Mature gamers who do not condone this behaviour!
      Our raid schedule is Tuesday/Thursday/Sunday 6:30pm to 9:00pm server time(pst)
      We currently have an "Alt" raid for alts and non-progression raiders on Mondays at the same time! MEGA amounts of fun there, alot of us use our mains to carry this raid and help gear these raiders up!
      Other guild events include: Herb Drives, Fishing Expo, Mog off! (Best transmog wins), Old Raids for Transmog gear & Mythic Plus runs. We do random guild events with prizes up to and including a FREE MONTH OF WOW! (Mog-Off is going on NOW!!)
      We have quite a bit of fun when we get together, as we always have over the years! Come join us and get corrupted (Disclaimer: Infections have been found to be the leading cause of corruption in many raiders) We've always been here and will continue to be here! Of course you will be required to sacrifice a goat or an alliance player once a week to the Horde gods..... You will also be required to laugh and have fun as well! We do have fun!
      So.......COME.......GET.......CORRUPTED!

      Who are we?
      Volatile are a group of mostly ex-mythic raiders, looking to get back into mythic raiding and for us to be able to do that we need some more people to fill the gaps. Besides raiding our friendly bunch of members enjoy running mythic+ on daily basis, helping out with world quests among other things. Our discord is usually filled with members for daily banter and weekly fun. If you enjoy all that, you most certainly will enjoy your stay in Volatile.
      Who are we looking for?
      We're primarily looking for ranged DPS to fill out the roster. But we are also interested in any dps class with a good healing offspec. Even though your class isn't listed below, don't be afraid of getting in contact with us.
      Tanks - Closed
      Healers - Closed
      Ranged DPS - Open
      Melee DPS - Closed
      Overall we're looking for people with a good knowledge of their class/spec who know how to improve their gameplay. Being fairly thick skinned and being able to accept constructive criticism, as well as the occasional jab from some of our more 'outspoken' members, is a big plus too.
      When do we raid?
      We raid two times a week as standard, we often have an additional raid day if necessary. See raid times below. 
      Thursday: 8pm - 11pm (Server time)
      Monday: 8pm - 11pm (Server time)
      Tuesday: 8pm - 11pm (Additional day)
      Application process:
      We believe the best way to get to know if someone is right for the guild is just to have a chat, rather than go through a long application process. So we'll have a chat, look at logs and possibly run some M+ to get to know each other. If you're interested in joining our mythic raid team, contact any of the following:
