Warlock Race

26 posts in this topic

So, i've been rocking this thought of Race changing my Undead Warlock. I really do feel like Undead is the Race to be for a Warlock, but lets face it, their Racial is a Joke in PvE. I dont play pvp EVER, so i dont care about Will of the Forsaken.

 

So now that i've built up some momentum of how i feel about my Race as is, the question is probably obvious by now, Orc or Troll?

 

These days i play GoSac Destro for the MOST part in SoO, but i play all the specs really. Just thought i would mention that since Orc has bonus towards a pet.

 

So the SimCraft "whore" that i am, i did some Simulations in my gear and it seems that Troll on paper is the best choice. Any opinon's on the matter? Or better yet, anyone with experience with both Races?

as an undead warlock with top 5 parses (and some rank 1s) in a guild where our other locks paid for race changes, FUCK TROLLS AND ORCS. undead 4 life.

 

seriously though, if that tiny DPS gain is worth $15 or whatever it is and it really bothers you that much that you're missing out on it, then go for the race change. but just know that even for great players, there are a lot of tiny things you can always improve to get more DPS besides a race change.

I feel ya fellow Undead! Not gonna lie, it's tempting to stay Undead, but dayum, im a bit of a DPS whore aswell xD

 

EDIT: Saw you edited your's, So figured i'd do the same. It's not just about the Race Change, it's also about getting feedback on how much of a difference there really is in Comparison. If it's not substantial enough, im sure as hell not spending money on it.

there's a tiny difference of DPS between racials. that difference could come from a million other things like RPPM trinkets proccing at the right/wrong time, being targeted by a random boss mechanic, getting a string of lucky set bonus procs, just getting a few more crits than average, etc etc. all those things are completely outside your control but they have a bigger impact than the racials. it just isn't worth it unless you're in a world first guild, and if you were in a world first guild then your DPS would fluctuate wildly with the randomness of gear drops in the 2-3 weeks you have to clear everything.

Those numbers are relatively skewed. Problem with Simcraft is it doesn't make human decisions about snapshotting and lining up stuff.

That is 100% bullshit. Worgen 1% crit is way,way, way lower value then troll 20% snap shot haste. 

 

Do not EVER trust SimC for something like this.

To be fair, that chart does show Troll 5000 DPS over 2nd place and 7000 over the highest Alliance race.  5000 and 7000 are pretty significant for just what your character looks like.  I'm not sure Troll is being considered with Beastslaying...methinks Troll is worth 10k DPS on almost every fight and an additional 5% (10-15k) on beasts.

Troll makes affliction opening BEAST.

 

Dark Soul + Tempus Repit + BL + Racial -> OP as fuck.

 

For Destro is useful for soak more Chaos Bolts into procs and more immolate and RoF ticks.

Blizz gets $50 from me every tier.  $25 to go Troll during progression, $25 to go back Orc on farm.

I payed only U$18,00 for race change.

Why?

Beucase Brazil is OP.

Btw or sub is only U$7,00.

One question about Goblins. Is their hit box smaller than the other classes? Do you have a split second more leeway to getting out of fire?

Another thing to consider for Goblins is that they have a get out of jail free card of standing in bad stuff. Rocket Boots!

Different races do not have different hit boxes.

 

If whatever you have to get out of is so big that you would need Rocket Boots over a simple side step (that takes significantly less time), you can be using Burning Rush, Demonic Circle, or Demonic Gateway for them. And, of course, engineers can pop Nitro Boost.

He didn't even say what spec that was...for all you know that was destruction and 1% crit is sexy as fuck.

 

Destruction BiS races:

 

Troll - 427966

Orc - 421413

Worgen - 420670

Goblin - 420174

Undead - 418167

 

Troll is 2.34% ahead of undead for DESTRUCTION.

 

For demo troll isn't even that much better than orc now. For affliction you can probably argue troll as vastly superior, but outside of that, meh.

 

Side note, if I had the money to spend I'd switch to undead right now because yolocastanimationdpsgain AESTHETICS MEAN THE WORLD BRAH.

After Thok goes down, I might go female Goblin.  Nothing makes me happier than hearing "EXPLOSY TIME!" while playing Destruction.  I might macro /charge with Chaos Bolt just to hear her do her Goblin grunt or yell "EXPLOSY TIME" with each CB.

Troll is a DPS gain, but it will never tear me away from the Blood Elf Master Race when it comes to 'locks.

 

Love the hell out of my Troll Druid and Shaman though.

      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 both melee and ranged DPS to fill out the roster. At this time we are full on tanks and healers.
      Tanks - Closed
      Healers - Closed
      Ranged DPS -Warlock and Shadow Priest but all classes will be considered
      Melee DPS - Ret Paladin
      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)
      Sunday: 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.

      If you have any further questions please contact us at battletags: Vims#21684 Azkey#21565

      I have been studying my logs consistently for weeks now and trying to raise my dps. One of the main things I've figured out is that my DE uptime is crappy... However, I have tried my darnedest and can't seem to get it higher. I know i cast it after every demon summon/ summon combo and even downloaded an add on to help me track my demons and their empowerment status. I am at my wits end and NEED some practical advice! Also, if you see anything else that is a major issue please let me know.
