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)

      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.

      Maximum Effort is a new guild on Cenarion circle (A). I was the raid leader for my guild for a long time and we built up a strong raid team. Due to do some dis-agreements between me and the guild leader I was forced to leave. But luckly enough a lot of my team followed me! We're working to build a guild focused around team work and group progression. We love doing mythics, raids, talking and theory crafting about the game!
      We have a very strong-core raid group, capable of clearing heroic and doing some mythic but we're just missing a few people to round it out!
      Raid nights.. Tue/wed 6-830pm server (9:30-11:30 est) Off night Monday 6-830pm server (9-11:30 est)
      Looking for.. -Any and all dps specs
      - Non pally or holy priest healer!
      All raid mats and needs are covered by guild, we run personal look just for the ease of it.
      My btag is Hethrus#1504 if you have questions or wish to try out!

We are recruiting to finish rounding out our raid team. <Trust> is located on the [US] Doomhammer/Baelgun pve servers, alliance side! Check us out!
       
      About Us:

      Our Raids:
      <Trust> maintains a progression-oriented 2-day semi-casual raiding team.

We strive to maintain a balance of taking our progression raids seriously while having plenty of laughs along the way.

      Tuesday & Thursday: 5p – 8p server (8p – 11p eastern)
