Furty's Destro Guide - Just an odd question

7 posts in this topic

OK, so in the section labeled "Opening Sequence" Furty has the priority setup like this:

4. Opening Sequence

  1. Use Potion of Deadly Grace Icon Potion of Deadly Grace.
  2. Pre-cast Incinerate Icon Incinerate at 5 seconds on the countdown.
  3. Pre-cast a second Incinerate Icon Incinerate.
  4. Pre-cast Immolate Icon Immolate.

I am probably reading this entirely wrong but it looks like he wants me to pre-cast 2 spells, one spell twice. If this is accurate, then I assume the fight starts after the first IncinerateIncinerate. With that assumption why do I cast a second IncinerateIncinerate? Why not just move into casting ImmolateImmolate? Please help me, I am simply trying to figure out how this whole priority rotation BS is suppose to work but it isn't as black and white to me as it seems to appear to everyone else.

I'm not a Warlock genius, but I assume this is due to the travel time of Incinerate. Unless I remember incorrectly, the spell moves rather slowly and, given the max range, your spell will most likely hit the boss as it starts. That's the only thing that comes to mind.

In the future, it's worth putting your comment in the comments thread of the guide

Incinerate is like chaosbolt, it moves very slow. When  it hits the boss it does it's dmg so the 5 secs are ok.
I tried it already out in prepatch (all ids).
In our group I started to cast at 4 because of ping, player reaction and so on.
Some times I pulled when casting on 5 because of the "bad?" reaction of the tank.

hmm... so I'm still not quite understanding this concept... is it because in theory, if you cast the two and then immolate, all three will hit the boss around the same time because the slow moving Incinerate? Why not cast immolate once the boss is engaged? Does Incinerate buff any spells? Sorry that I'm not catching on...

So essentially, you are required to keep Immolate up at all times and never letting it drop. By pre-casting these spells, we can immediately have the debuff up on the boss. Due to the way the cast and travel times work, your first Incinerate and the Immolate will hit at the same time. Your second Incinerate will hit shortly after.

You can then immediately launch into your normal rotation, rather than having to spend time in the actual boss fight applying your first Immolate.

im going to assume that with the coming shard changes, that incin can be replaced with a CB. This is actually really nice for destros openers because we can pretty much start the fight with eradication rolling. 

on the topic of openers...im currently putting up my immo, conflag, conflag, then CB. once eradication is up i pop all three portals, throw in my serv imp and doomguard, by that time i recast immo and conflag and then another CB. Everything seems to just line up nicely at the start there.

Will definitely be interesting to see. I'm sure Furty will keep things updated shortly after those shard changes go live!

      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.

      - 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.

      I’m in the process of rerolling a tank. My question is: How do I know if I’m doing a good job?

      I currently play a hunter and as a DPS the metrics that I use to judge my performance are fairly simple. If I’m consistently sitting in the top X percentile of DPS for my spec and gear; and sitting in at least the bottom half of the raid for damage taken, I can be relatively sure that I’m doing good DPS and doing the mechanics well too.


       
      However, as a tank this falls apart. Damage taken and even damage mitigated are poor metrics because I need to know if I’m taking and avoiding/mitigating the right damage. For example, I may mitigate 95% of the total damage in a fight, but if the 5% that I don’t mitigate is the 5% that is vital to avoid then I have done a poor job. Damage taken is bad because I may only be sitting at the top of damage taken because I didn’t switch when I needed to, therefore taking unnecessary damage.

      Staying alive is a poor metric too, just because I’ve stayed alive doesn’t mean that I’ve done a good job. What if I’m only alive because a healer needed to make the choice to keep me alive while I was taking excess damage and sacrifice one or more DPS in the process.

      Keeping threat and tank switching etc at the right time is bad as well because there is more to tanking than just mechanics.

      I’ve done some reading and apparently there is or was a ranking system for tanks in wowlogs. But after a long look I can’t find it and all the posts relating to this were over 12 months old, so I assume it’s been removed.

      I’ve also spoken to our MT about this and his response was ‘I don’t know’. As someone who wants to preform at the highest level possible, I find it unacceptable to not be able to judge how I’m preforming relative to my past self (am I improving?) and other people in a similar position.

      So, how do I judge if I’m doing a good job tanking and what areas need to be improved?

      Since 7.1.5 it seems that Cinderstorm and/or Meteor are valid options and often outperform Kindle. 
      How to properly include them in you rotation? Would be great if the guide would highlight the use of them.
      Questions like:
      Cinderstorm > Rop > Combustion > Instant Pyro > and so on  , does this really work to get 5 stacks of pyretic incantation? Cinderstorm on cooldown or only as filler if FB is on CD with HS up? When to use Meteor in Single Target Rotation?

      Hello, fellow Warlocks
      I recently received Odr, Shawl of the Ymirjar, which does "Enemies marked by your Havoc take 8% increased damage from your single target spells." Currently I've been running Channel Demonfire, but I am curious about Wreak Havoc. I know it's amazing for cleave, but would taking Wreak Havoc benefit more than demonfire, even if it is pure single target when having this legendary? I usually browse Icy Veins guides, and haven't seen a specific comment about this.
      Apolgies if this has been asked somewhere else already.
