Demo + Destro dual spec; reforge

9 posts in this topic

Hello. First of all, I want to thank everyone who's contributed to making this forum the #1 resource for all things warlocky - I've been hanging out here ever since I returned to WoW a few months ago.

I realize there are a lot of reforge posts available, but I can't seem to find what I am looking for. I've been playing destruction since 5.2 hit, trying a few different reforge schemes along the way. Crit > haste > mastery, mastery > haste -> crit, and even haste > mastery > crit.

After getting the LFR version of Unerring Vision of Lei Shen I decided to try demonology with haste > mastery > crit reforge, going for 25% haste to get extra ticks of Doom.

This has worked quite well, but I am not ready to give up destruction just yet - I still find it better on some encounters. However, I'm not satisfied with my current reforge scheme for destruction.

Do you guys have any advice on how to reforge in order to get the most out of both specs? I realize this will probably hurt both specs a bit, but as long as it's not too much of a dps loss in either spec, I really prefer a setup which works for both.

1 RPPM trinket, with legendary meta...

Aim for 8100 haste, then put the rest in to mastery. That breakpoint works well for both Demo and Destro and is easily attained at your ilvl (looks like you're already there).

Anything is fine really as long as it isn't crit.

To quote Zagam, "Crit is shit." I believe that's the phrase to use this tier as it applies to all 3 specs.

Thanks for the feedback. What do you imply here, though, not sure I follow?

Oh its kind of just a mental checklist as to how much I weigh haste over mastery. The extra haste raises the proc chances of RPPM items so in theory you'd get more benefit from your trinkets/meta, but in reality it doesn't matter that much. Those things have a mind of their own as to how many times they want to proc on a fight-to-fight basis that you wont notice a 2% increase in a proc chance.

Depends on your gear level, but it hasn't been a bad idea to strike a balance between haste and mastery all tier.

Currently 528. I tried the mega haste (30%+ with destro. It was interesting)

      Hello, I'd like to recieve feedback on my lock's deck.
      I was away from hearthstone since the expansion before kobolds and catacombs so it has been a while. I don't have much cards from the kobolds and monsters; but still here's my deck which is fun to play.

      Any suggestions on how to improve this one?

      The strategy is simple; using the deathrattle minions to kill them with the other warlock's minions, and using demons so DK Gul'dan can revive them.
