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.

      Who are we?
      Volatile are a group of mostly ex-mythic raiders, looking to get back into mythic raiding. We cleared through Nighthold heroic a number of months ago and need some more people in order to jump into mythic. 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. At this time we are full on tanks and healers.
      Tanks - Closed
      Healers - Closed
      Ranged DPS - MM Hunter, Warlock and Shadow Priest but all classes will be considered
      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:
      Contact us:
      GM:

      All applications will be reviewed and considered however if you are playing a class/spec combination we need then your chances of joining will be higher.
      A little bit of info about us:
      We are a group of friends and serious raiders on EU Twisting Nether looking to recruit skilled like-minded players into our roster for Mythic Legion raids and onwards. We will offer a sociable and fun raiding environment while maintaining a strong desire for progression. Our Discord is very active and we encourage all members to chat and play together not only for raids. The guild formed late March 2016 and fully cleared 13/13 Mythic Hellfire Citadel pre nerf shortly after. We've since been improving our world ranking every tier.
      We currently raid 3 days per week on Mythic: Wednesday, Sunday and Tuesday 19:15-22:15 server time. While it is not a lot we try to make the most out of our time. We run optional heroic/normal/alt/previous tier raids during off days in which raiders are welcome to come to. Our members also play other games outside raid times together where anyone is welcome to join(LoL, Dota, HotS, Overwatch etc.).
      Our loot system for Mythic is RC Loot Council.
      What we expect from you:
      - We are a raiding guild with only a 9 hour per week schedule so you are expected to attend and be ON TIME! However we understand things can come up sometimes but please let us know.
      - Be able to speak and understand the English language and not be afraid to communicate with other members during raids.
      - Actively doing dungeons/world quests to improve your gear and artifact weapon.
      - Have a strong understanding of the current raid tier and be able to play your class to it's potential.
      - Always come to raids prepared(i.e. bringing food and potions, etc).
      - Come fully gemmed and enchanted with the correct stats for your class and spec.
      - Access to Discord and a working microphone.
      - Have a computer that can handle 20 man raiding and a good, stable internet connection.
      - Exorsus Raid Tools, Weakauras2 and RC Loot Council addons installed. We may ask you to install others.

      If you have any further questions please contact us at battletags: Vims#21684 Azkey#21565
