Choosing a spec post first legendary.

5 posts in this topic

So right after I hit 100 and while I was still doing some quests as destro, the spec I leveled as, I got my first legendary. Sweet right? One right off the bat! But it's made me wonder, as demo has proven to be the top performing spec, if that's turned out to be a drawback. Mostly because this Magistrike Restraints is the one I got. It has a very spec specific benefit, and I'm wondering if it's worth sticking to destro because of it. I've played some demo, and I worry that if I get a second legendary in demo, it's going to spread out the power I could gain by having two for the same spec. Also I wonder if that 30% chance of the extra chaos bolt is going to increase my damage enough to be competitive with demo at my ilevel (855 right now). Or I could always get one in demo that benefits all specs. But I don't know. So I'm mostly just working with what I have now and under the impression that I will, at some point get, one more. 

So tell me what you think. Is that 30% chaos bolt worth sticking with the spec? Is the possibility of having two destro legendaries really going to push my damage output higher than demo would be with no legendaries for it? Or just one?

First, Demo hasn't proven to be the top spec. It is the best ST spec and has reasonable cleave/aoe, but that doesn't really make it the top spec. Destro is still VERY strong and is much more widely used in mythic, mythic+, and mythic raiding.

If you want to min/max in mythic raiding you need to play both destro and demo, but if you want to be average then you can play either one but playing demo really handicaps you in a lot of situations.

Those bracers are great for basically everything that destro is great at, but if you don't want to play destro then forcing yourself into a spec you hate isn't viable long term.

Morachnus,

To me it sounds like you need to decide what your main spec will be. Your main spec being the one you do the most fights with. For me it is Destro. We are barely into mythic but the only fight I have and probably will play with Demo is on Nythendra. Hence loot spec for me is Destro until I go hunting for Sindorei Spite.

Spikey, I've always been horrible at settling with one spec. I like the different flavors of warlock too much, haha. 

Locky, you make some good points. I guess I just need to focus less on sims and other people's numbers and focus on my own. Destro is a good spec, and I like the feel of the rotation. 

Thanks for the feedback guys. :)

Morachnus,

Thanks for the reply. Well there's nothing to say you can only play one spec. Even go for all 3 if that is what you want. 

I have the Feretory of Souls belt and 29 points in Destro. In Demo I have 20 points, the belt doesn't proc and I am still at only 34% haste. So it is close but Demo is still better ST damage for me. However, if I have to move a lot then Destro eventually takes over. Up until now I have done better with Destro on Ursoc heroic. This is due to the fact that the guild makes use move a lot, much more than you will see on any top lock video and yeah I am a lot more experienced with Destro and hence can get more from that spec. I know this is a complete jumble but do you get what I am trying to say?  Play around and see what works and what doesn't for you. Yes sims show the max DPS but that doesn't mean it is achievable by the majority of people. 

Otherwise I echo everything that Locky has said. 

P.S Edited to add it also depends on what your guild needs. Mine seems ok on ST damage but adds dying can be a problem hence Destro wins again.

      About Us
      Skunkworks is a guild for players who can not or do not want to commit to the time-intensive raid schedules of traditional "hardcore" guilds.
      However, we still maintain a high caliber player environment and make an efficient use of our raiding time.
      We raid Tuesdays and Thursdays from 7:00 - 11:00 PST, just 8 hours a week and never more.
       
      We are very protective of our guild environment and selective in recruitment. We are looking for solid players mechanically as well as intellectually.
      We all get paid to deal with idiots, why should we pay to spend our leisure time with them as well?
       
      Skunkworks has been around for multiple expansions and has historically always been at the top of the 2-night raiding guild scene.

      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, PUBG, 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 battletag: Vims#21684

      As a retribution Pally should I equip the Insignia of the Grand Army instead of either Soul of the Highlord or Chain of Thrayn.  Could not find in the icy-veins guide about this ring.
      Thanks
