*Affliction Lock - Orc, ilevel 885, 38 artifact traits*

1600-1700 2's rating: with a Resto Shaman

1800+ 3's rating: with a Resto Shaman/DH

Pets: Fel Hunter (Permanent) then: Inferno stun / Fel hunter


My question is how do you play with your lock in 2's vs 3's strategy?


(1). Do you just outlast and wait for dampening? spread pressure, UA+Drain when you can, and try and outlast with:


Talents: Writhe / Absolute / Howl / Siphon / Demon / Service / Phantom ?


Honor Talents: Relentless / Mind Quickness / Tongues or Weakness / Nether / Deaths Embrace / Amplify ?


(2). OR do you try to set up burst windows? with some what spread pressure    (its hard to get dots on both healer/dps) but CC chain the healer and burst with UA + Drain on the DPS for a kill window? with:


Talents: MG / Absolute / Howl / Siphone / Demon / Service / Phantom?


Honor Talents: Relentless / Mind Quickness / Tongues or Weakness / Nether / Deaths Embrace / Amplify ?


For 3's I do the (1) for the spread pressure since its hard for the healer to maintain, but for 2's I keep trying (1) and (2), I just cant seem to find the right way to climb in 2's


Any advice on talents/honor talents or play style for Affliction in 2's or 3's? or anything you try with your healers? I'm open for suggestions and talent changes


thank you.

      The MoP Remix release date might have been leaked due to an entry found in the War Within Closed Alpha calendar!
      As per the Alpha's in-game calendar, MoP Remix is currently scheduled to launch on May 16th and run until August 19th.
      Although Blizzard hasn't officially confirmed the launch of MoP Remix yet, it seems they intend to make it available until the War Within pre-patch.

      Blizzard updated their Season 4 development notes and changed the schedule for Awakened raids! They are now going to be changing every week, and it seems they will no longer all be Awakened later on in the season.
      Awakened Raids (Source)
      Awakened Raids
      Every week during Dragonflight Season 4, one of the three Dragonflight raids will become Awakened: Vault of the Incarnates; Aberrus, the Shadowed Crucible; or Amirdrassil, the Dream's Hope. Enemies within Awakened raids are stronger and drop upgraded loot with a higher item level. A buff that increases reputation gain with Dragonflight reputations will be enabled whenever a specific raid is Awakened: Schedule Vault of the Incarnates: Sign of Awakened Storms – Dragonscale Expedition, Maruuk Centaur, and Iskaara Tuskaar Aberrus, the Shadowed Crucible: Sign of Awakened Embers – Loamm Niffen, Soridormi, and Sabellian/Wrathion Amirdrassil, the Dream's Hope: Sign of Awakened Dreams – Dream Wardens and Valdrakken Accord All raids Awakened: All the above reputations are increased All three raids will also drop a new tier token to exchange for new tier pieces with the appearance and set bonus combination that players voted for. Earn 1 Antique Bronze Bullion a week per character by defeating Awakened bosses, with the cap rising by 1 each week. Note that if you miss a week, you'll be able to catch up to the current weekly max. Exchange 2 Bullion for weapons and powerful items from the Dragonflight raids from the vendors in the Parting Glass in Valdrakken. An additional vendor nearby sells Jigglesworth Sr mount for 3 Bullion and cosmetics that grant you the choice of any raid weapon appearance at any difficulty color for 1 Bullion each. Legendary items will drop as usual from raids, but players who have previously obtained them can purchase a Scale of Awakening to upgrade their items to the Season 4 ilvls (base is 502 and can be upgraded further through Crests and Flightstones). Rewards Complete all three Awakened Dragonflight raids on Normal difficulty to receive the Voyaging Wildering dynamic flying mount. Earn the new title, "Awakened Hero", for completing the Awakened raids on Heroic difficulty. Those who complete the Awakened raids on Mythic difficulty are rewarded with Path Portals to the three raids.

      There's a whole lot of mounts getting the Dynamic Flight treatment in the War Within, with a number of shared animation rigs between them. Blizzard artist Bex shared a few of the ones she worked on, giving us a look at the horse, dog and some more ship-like and mechanical rigs!
      Let's start with the most interesting one, which includes mounts like the Stormwind Skychaser and Orgrimmar Interceptor, as well as all gyrocopter mounts, and more:
      We then have two seemingly similar rigs, but as it turns out they were both tricky and quite separate to get done, the horse and dog:

      So, what do you think of the new animations? Which ones are your favorite (both from here and the official video preview)?

      We've also looked at the Mythic+ tier list during the final week of Season 3!
      The following post is based on data from U.GG. Therefore, the data presented here may differ from Petko's Mythic Tier Lists maintained on our site.
      How the Data is Calculated
      U.GG's tier list is created by evaluating damage and healing scores from the very best players and factoring in the frequency of each spec's appearances in the highest rankings of the current Mythic+ season. The tier list of each spec is determined by its effectiveness and prevalence at the highest levels of Mythic+ play.
