Destruction Warlock and CC 5.0.4

4 posts in this topic

Hello! I'm new to Destruction Warlock. I am level 47 right now; but my dps will be high in one dungeon and low in another. I start my rotation with Immolate, then conflagrate, then Incinerate. I try to dot mobs with immolate, and then conflagrate, then focus on one with incinerate and throw up rain of fire. Chaos bolt where it applies. I read everywhere about rotations, tried making macros and they don't feel right. I key bound the rotation but sometimes point and click.

I say all this so you know where I am coming from. My question is about crowd control, how do I do it, and is it necessary before 85? Is fear part of CC'ing? I don't use fear because 1) I am afraid to send a enemy into another crowd, and 2) What good does it really do? I do use it when questing, and more than one enemy is attacking. Anyways, any advice would be appreciated. I have tried looking it up, and I seem to be more confused, maybe looking in all the wrong places. Thanks again.

Oh yeah I did get glyph of burning embers but that is all.

dont bother fearing. It will cause more wipes than any other CC. If you HAVE to CC, use either banish or seduce, but generally, CC isnt really necessary in dungeons.

You should ALWAYS be opening with Curse of the Elements. It gives you (and all other spellcasters) a flat 5% damage increase and is well worth the global cooldown.

Your rotation seems fine, and theres not a lot you can really do about it. DPS will vary greatly in levelling dungeons, especially when you get to a new dungeon with higher level mobs if your Hit Rating hasnt increased. Hover over your spell Hit in the character pane and it will tell you how much you will miss against mobs up to 3 levels higher than yourself.

Another factor is your secondary stats. When levelling, they are changing constantly due to new gear and are often FAR from optimal for your spec.

TBH, I wouldnt really worry about it. Levelling is levelling. You cant really assess things until you get to max lvl and start raiding.

Thank you. Every time I go into a dungeon, I worry that I'm blowing it. I tried Affliction, but I got complaints. Destruction seems more my type anyway. Again, thank you.

      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.

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