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.

WIth 2 RPPM trinkets, and the meta gem is it better to stack haste, or is it better to keep mastery on par with haste?

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)

      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:
      Contact us:
