Question about Soul swap with procs

6 posts in this topic

Hello. I am wondering about Soul swapping with procs. Does it copy the current dots power or puts up fresh dots?

The new swap works as follows:

 

Boss 1 has 10 seconds left on all of your DoT's that are empowered by multiple buffs.

 

You inhale from Boss 1. *****Does not remove DoT's from Boss 1

 

For 3 seconds you retain all of your DoT's at 10 seconds remaining, including their power.

 

Let's say, for a good example, that you hold onto said DoT's for 2 seconds.

 

You exhale DoT's onto Boss 2.  Those DoT's *start* with 10 seconds left on them (and retain the current stack of Agony), including their power.  At this point in time Boss 1 has 8 seconds left on those same DoT's.

 

The faster you Soul Swap the closer the durations will be on all targets you're swapping to.  On a fight with many mobs to swap to you *always* want to swap from the last target you swapped to.  That way you aren't losing time.

But be careful! There is a bug with affdots!

 

Example:

 

I soulswap my Dots from Target 1. After Soulswapping, my Trinket proccs, Affdots shows me 180 and blue colour. Remember, I swapped the Dots without the proc.

Then I switch the target and inhale the Dots again. Affdots shows me 100 and red on the new target. Trinket procc is still running, and i swapped the low-Dots.

 

So you still have to take a look on whats happening while multidotting. Dont turn off your brain und do what affdots tells you to do every time.

 

 

More DOTS!

 

 

PS. sorry for my bad english. I'm German and school was quiet a long time ago :P

for multidotting I suggest making one target the focus and then checking what affdots tells about that target. Then it's actually accurate.

Not if the copied dots are Soul Swapped.

      Who are we?
      Volatile are a group of mostly ex-mythic raiders, looking to get back into mythic raiding and for us to be able to do that we need some more people to fill the gaps. 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. But we are also interested in any dps class with a good healing offspec. Even though your class isn't listed below, don't be afraid of getting in contact with us.
      Tanks - Closed
      Healers - Closed
      Ranged DPS - Open
      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:

      I dont know what im doing wrong, ive have the right talents, and doing my rotation in order, and yet i am doing horrible dps. 
      I am currently using the rotation stated on icy-veins.
      ive been out dpssed by other warlocks from my guild, pugs and in lfr (i know, but still) and i dont know what i am doing wrong. 
      this is the profile of a guildie, who does a ton more dps than me. https://worldofwarcraft.com/en-gb/character/stormrage/hulabaloo
      If someone has some advice, it's greatly appreciated..
