Confused about level 100 demonology talents.

3 posts in this topic

Hi, This is about Ice Veins Demonology 100 talent discussion. I'm greatly confused about this, since I can't see any synergy between Ascendance and Soul Conduit. If anyone could clarify this. I've already thought about it having something to do with summons. But it has to do with DE so yeah. Simply can't see the synergy with theese two together.

Copied right from the 100 talent discussion from Icy Veins:

Soul Conduit Icon Soul Conduit is the best option for single target and light cleave and should be your go-to for most encounters. This talent is only worthwhile if using Thal'kiel's Ascendance Icon Thal'kiel's Ascendance.

TKA is the newest golden so the real decider is if your arty weapon has that ability yet.

So with SC you get shards refunded hence you will spend more shards. Spending more shards means more pets out in total which means (in theory) more TKA damage and that is where the synergy comes from. 

There's also an argument to be made if you summon more pets then you use DE more increasing the chance of a TKA. However, this is very minor and especially if you play with Power Trip as you will be casting DE instead of SB the majority of the time anyhow.

There is a very strong synergy between Soul Conduit, Thal'kiel's Ascendance, and the Shadowy Inspiration / Power Trip build for single target. You generate soul shards more quickly than the other Demonology builds, provided there is only one target, so it's easy to get to the point where you have 10+ demons and then you just spam Demonic Empowerment until a few of them despawn.

With the alternate talents like Demonic Calling, Hand of Doom, Grimoire of Synergy - which all make for a more forgiving and flexible playstyle, if you don't want to constantly respec - Soul Conduit becomes more of a situational thing. On heavy cleave for example, you can get a lot of shard return from Soul Conduit if you are able to spam Demonwrath and Hand of Gul'dan, but you can also get a lot of burst damage with Darkglare, so it's questionable whether that's a gain.

      Hello, I'd like to recieve feedback on my lock's deck.
      I was away from hearthstone since the expansion before kobolds and catacombs so it has been a while. I don't have much cards from the kobolds and monsters; but still here's my deck which is fun to play.

      Any suggestions on how to improve this one?

      The strategy is simple; using the deathrattle minions to kill them with the other warlock's minions, and using demons so DK Gul'dan can revive them.

      I'm not entirely sure what I am doing wrong that is getting me this result, but I am getting about a 30k dps difference on training dummy when I use a defile, clawing shadows, shadow infusion build than when I use the recommended talents. I left the rest of my talents unchanged and I have yet to see where the dps difference is coming from (arbiter or clawing shadows), but I'm very confused as to how this could happen.

      Defile damage breakdown, Arbiter damage breakdown
      I felt like I had a harder time keeping my disease up and using coldheart on cooldown (or rather whenever at max stacks) with the arbiter build. Am I missing some key thing or do I just need to git gud? Thanks in advance for any help.

      Hello there all,
      I have been made aware by my guild leader that he has a concerned about my lack of high Damage on my Demonology Warlock.
      Would someone please look him over for gear & potential enchantment,gems Etc.
      He even refused to allow me in a guild raid lately since my dmg wasn't enough, so I went with someone else's guild instead, :)
      I subsequently much higher iLvL  2 relics, one trinket & a end Antoran Raid Aggramar / Argus ring legendary ring  too...
      Anyways I've had this same Warlock since about 2007 I got into wow just a bit before the Burning Crusades expansion came out, so yea I'm very attached to this Warlock of mine.
      I have recently re-did his crit enchants everywhere , gems & talents too, but he still doesn't seem to have gone up in dmg much though, oddly.
      Here is My warlock's wow armory page,OK?

      I'd be happy to,  all I ask is to let me know what it is, where to get it, etc,please?
      Thank you:)
      Your fellow wow dungeon & raiding player,
