Sac as Demo?

7 posts in this topic

Hi everyone. I posted in the warlock guide section a few days ago and haven't received an answer yet, so I thought I would try posting here.

I was re-reading the guide because I've been trying to maximize my damage with the UVLS trinket. I read in the guide that Grim of Sacrifice is recommended for single target fights? When does this become relevant (as in what ilvl)? I tried using simcraft, but grimoire of service still comes out way ahead.

I also had a question regarding imp swarm and UVLS. I've seen conflicting theories and just wanted someone to tell me what is better! Should I be using this glyph? When I use it, should I always pair it with Dark Soul or on CD? Or, would the imps generated via UVLS be more beneficial than using the glyph of imp swarm since wild imps aren't generated while the glyph is on CD?

Thanks in advance!

So far the theory is always using imp swarm and always using it with DS. As for using grim of sac according to sparkuggz, methods warlock, he only uses it on Jin Rokh, council, and ji-kun because it comes out ahead for short bursts such as pools and primal nutrient. Hope that helps.

What i read in the past was: The more imps you can spawn (more doom rolls with UVLS) the better GoSac gets. GoServ gives you the most control of burst, like destroying ball lightnings at Lei Shen HC.

Somewhere was mentioned that not all your followers profit from abilitys like the pool at jin rokh but i don't know which. I thought is was only minions that profit, like the imps and not the pets like doomguard/terrorguard.

Edit1: Found it here. The imps profit from pools at jin rokh - should be superior then GoServ since the normal pet don't stand in the pool.

Edit2: You can get good information in this topic unter the the jin rokh section.

Wild Imps are not pets, they are guardians and they don't benefit from pools.

All of the Grimoires have a special way to play that you must adapt to. They are not plug and play talents. They change your reforges, playstyle, and what you do in fights. Full Haste, close to BiS, and being given single target responsibilities makes Grim of Sac very powerful. For short busts of AoE, Supremacy tends to win out. For bursts of AoE every 2 mins, Service tends to win out, but remember that in the hands of a very skilled Warlock, the differences are VERY small. You're not going to switch a talent and see a 10k DPS change.

Thank you all for your replies. I really appreciate it!

With regards to imp swarm, should I only be using it while matching my Dark Soul cd, or should I be using imp swarm on its own cd?

      Who are we?
      Volatile are a group of mostly ex-mythic raiders, looking to get back into mythic raiding. We cleared through Nighthold heroic a number of months ago and need some more people in order to jump into mythic. 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. At this time we are full on tanks and healers.
      Tanks - Closed
      Healers - Closed
      Ranged DPS - MM Hunter, Warlock and Shadow Priest but all classes will be considered
      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:
      GM: 
      Xadel#2609, Xadel (ingame)
      Council: 
      Òops#2597, Drainphase (ingame)
      Passive#2900, Malenky (ingame)
      Ohajay#2606, Draconem (ingame)
      Hjp#21650, Phynn (ingame)

      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.
