Legion Levling what spec is best?

4 posts in this topic

I wonder what spec I should use on Legion levling from 100-110 because I got no set bonuses or the warlock trinket! and yeah I am new to the game but have learned the warlock rotations kinda.

For leveling, probably the spec you enjoy the most and expect to use at 110. I suspect raiders are going to be leveling all three specs in artifact power as much/soon as possible. If you're talking about viability in leveling it's sorta irrelevant; always has been. Leveling as a lock is stupidly easy, regardless of spec. You don't need to know much of any spell priorities for leveling. Basically, it doesn't matter what you choose if you're concerned about the leveling itself: every lock spec is OP/easymode for leveling.

 

Having said that, because of artifact power, you'd want to consider the spec(s) you are going to use at 110.

My plan is probably to level as Aff and then boost up Destro asap. I've always preferred Aff for leveling; it's just too easy to tag everything in sight and watch them all drain away without any fear of pulling anything ever from dots. It's just really smooth with no downtime. Destro is my second fav for levelling. Always found demo to be clunky leveling. I know some on this site prefer it while leveling though. 

 

Edit: Just so you don't think I'm blowing you off, I should  mention that, yes, I know for some classes leveling spec matters a decent amount. In the past some specs have been pretty annoying to level with; but this just isn't the case with locks. Leveling is a complete nonissue for them. The only things I can imagine are relevant are which spec you prefer and which one you plan on raiding with at 110 (and I think locks are going to have to be raising at least 2/3 if not 3/3 specs for raiding).

With wreak havoc you can just about 1 shot two mobs every time. Aff sounds tempting! Level in a group though and you'll see how useless we are at burst and aoe very quickly haha!

while destro is my least favorite there is no denying that it is exceptionally efficient than the other two specs for leveling. You can literally kill things twice as fast. I leveled as aff on beta and demo on alpha and i wish i had just done both as destro once i saw how it played.

I plan to not even bother with the other two artifacts until im 110, and only after im sitting on 2/3 gold traits on my scepter. The aff weapon seems like such a waste with there being two gold talents that only proc from a killing blow which is completely useless in PVE and minimally useful in PVP.

      I usually sim my characters to get the best possible results. I enjoy the process quite a lot and since I reached 120, I wanted to find out the best build of the spec. (Note, I didn't want to find out what to play, but rather how my own build fares in comarison.) I rarely mind a 1-2% difference. If it goes above 2%, I really mind a change. What this thread is about is mainly to bring something in the attention of those who help making the class guides, especially the talent choices. To my surprise, I was awed to find out that certain talents outperform previous "Standard" choices in the endgame, probably due to the stat squish.

      The Frost go-to build (top dps) would probably be along the lines of <Icy Talons / Cold Heart - Runic Attenuation - Frozen Pulse - Gathering Storm - Breath of Sindragosa>. What I found out primarily was that after the removal of legendaries, Cold Heart severely underperforms at most given situations resulting in a major dps drop due to the low mastery. Gathering Storm also suffers from the same problem and most of the times, Frostwyrm's Fury is better overall. The biggest surprise of them all, however, was that Inexorable Assault overperforms quite a lot, and is the first reason why I made the topic. I then started simming with the above in mind and I came across a build that some would not consider on par with top dog builds around the meta, which is the use of Horn of Winter which overperforms both its other two options when using the Breath build. Talent Sim can be seen here. Another intresting thing, which I loved, was that the 2nd best build uses Obliteration as a lvl 100 talent and no other build surpassed it (Other than the first one, obviously). So, I encourage frost players out there to give their other, less common talents a try. To the class guide author(s), I believe that the two "underdog" talents will earn their spot in the class guides.

      Thank you for your time reading this.
