Hey, why are you putting crit gems on the guide while your TC warlocks (who writed this guide) put mastery gems everywhere ?

I'd actually like to know why I see them gemming so much Haste + Mastery and not crit when crit is supposed to be above haste? Is it to reduce cast time on Incinerate?

Crit and Mastery are very close in value. The difference between gemming for crit, or for mastery, won't impact your dps greatly. I'm using mastery gems because I had them before the patch, and I didn't see a point in paying 1.5k to switch all of my gems on the gear I'll be replacing in two weeks :).

 

I'd recommend keeping crit and mastery relatively close to each other, but if you're a beginner player, crit is much more forgiving if you make mistakes.

Hey all, this is a general guide comment but I have not found such a forum here so I will put it here in my main character's thread.

 

I wish for the guide (and the guides in general) to include an as close to optimal opener for fights as possible. I am quite sad to see this lagging in guides that are so great in the other areas. The opener of a fight really does matter and it would be awesome if you experienced people would include what you surgest. It would fit great under the Rotation section of the guide. As destro I use my 5.4:

Precast Incin then immolate > prepot+on use trink+DS:ins >conf x2 > incin x4 > 2x CB

 

This might be wrong and most likely is but pls, spend a few sec to help people as me improve our dps, by writing your surgestions in the guide.

 

Great work though!

 

A great fan of your site

Hey there, just have an inquiry about what I read on another website (noxxic) concerning statistics priority for destruction warlocks. I read that the priorities are now as follows:
Intellect > Haste = Multistrike > Crit > Versatility = Mastery

 

Is this truly the case? Has mastery fallen this low, with intellect once again becoming the top followed by haste=multistrike?

 

Thanks in advance =)

When is this page going to be updated along with Affliction and Demonology? It seems that the warlocks and I think, Mages haven't been updated to count their new talents or setups.

Most warlocks doing challenge modes are:
Sacrifice, Cataclysm, Archimonde and no DS glyph.

Wow there are a lot of weird (read as "bad") things in the guide:
 

  • Int>Crit>Mastery... Then proceeds to gem mastery with 0 explanation
  • The rotation is bad if you use cataclysm. It applies immolate yet the guide says to use it AFTER immolate >_>
  • No starting rotation
  • Not a single word about Archimode's Darkness

I could go on but fix these at least >_>

Please go on. I fixed the Mastery issue, it was just a typo. I agree that the Immolate oversight was a pretty bad one. For the other two points, we don't give a starting rotation, unless it requires you to do things drastically different or you can reliably do the same thing every pull and we don't talk about Archimonde's Darkness, because we don't advise to take it.

The guide doesn't go in to detail about how to use archimonde's darkness because it's currently a dps loss over mannoroth's fury in all situations.

 

We can't specific a 'starting rotation' because of the nature of burning embers. The amount you generate on pull is RNG. Sometimes you might get off 3 chaos bolts, sometimes only 1.

Do why are you accounting pvp gear when i dont see a mention of even heroic gear?

Hey guys, I have a few questions about the dps guide.

1) are we to continue re-applying RoF? thats a toughy, but seems like it would be fun!

2) when we hit 3.5 embers, do we spam Chaos bolt until we drain to 1 burning ember? or do you just use 1 and resume rotation?

Thanks!

An update is coming soon for these. The Blizzard Item API is broken and has none of the WoD items, so I had to change all my scripts to go get and item information from WowDB. Obviously, repopulating my entire database of items from this new source has been taking some time.

You keep applying RoF whenever it expires.

Unless it says otherwise, you are only supposed to cast Chaos Bolt once. This is made explicit by the statement that says that you need to stay close to full Embers, so that you can burn them during Dark Soul.

Without running the numbers, what kind of sense does having 2 double damage Rain of Fires a minute represent a DPS increase over what probably ends up being 40 extra seconds of 30% crit?  In any other situation than dungeon trash this makes no sense.  I can see the argument where you have 3 or more targets, but against 1-2 target fights, it seems like it HAS to be a DPS loss.

From the patch notes today in hotfix:

 

 

Does this change anything in stat priority? Also wondering when RoF will be useful to cast as casting for 1 target sounds like a waste now.

I'm assuming that with the latest changes to Destro, the hugely nerfed RoF is no longer part of the single target rotation?

      To better illustrate your chances of success, a recommended Item Level is displayed when selecting Layer difficulty in Patch 9.0.5.
      This quality-of-life change is really good because it can potentially decrease your chance of failing a run.

      There's also a brief description of each wing on the left side of the UI in Patch 9.0.5.
      The six Torghast wings and Twisting Corridors have different item level recommendations, as outlined below.
      Recommended Item Level for the 6 Torghast Wings
      Layer Recommended Item Level 1 Item Level 130 2 Item Level 150 3 Item Level 160 4 Item Level 165 5 Item Level 175 6 Item Level 180 7 Item Level 185 8 Item Level 195 Recommended Item Level for Twisting Corridors
      Layer Recommended Item Level 1 Item Level 170 2 Item Level 180 3 Item Level 185 4 Item Level 195 5 Item Level 200 6 Item Level 210 7 Item Level 220 8 Item Level 225

      Players who reach 40 Renown will receive 1,500 Gold from the weekly quest to gather 1,000 Anima in Patch 9.0.5.
      If you've recruited the maximum amount of Souls for your Covenant, your weekly Renown quests to rescue souls from the Maw will reward 500 Anima.

      The Pet Battle World Quest that rewards Animated Ulna, an item needed for Carpal, is now available on EU realms!

      Here's how the pet looks like in the game.

      “Nobody knows why all of these skeletal hands are from the left hand. Where did the right hands go?”
      You must gather 3 parts to forge the pet (Lend Me a Hand).
      Animated Ulna - A rare reward from Maldraxxus Pet Battle World Quests (currently available). Animated Radius - Purchased from Nalcorn Talsen (51/53) for 250 Polished Pet Charms. Flexing Phalanges - Looted from Skeletal Hand Fragments at 47/62 in Maldraxxus. The objects are only visible when you have both Animated Ulna and Animated Radius.  You can find more details about the pet on Warcraft Pets.

      Update: it seems the tease IS gaming related, just not WoW! Apparently the text on the script is de-blurrable and is related to Mass Effect. You can read more about it over on PC Gamer.

      This is one of those "obviously not what we hope it is, but maaaybe?" things as Henry Cavill, who was part of many discussions about who should play Arthas last year, just posted an interesting image to his Instagram, as spotted by Warchief_Hammerhands.
      This is 99.99% Witcher-related, and the caption is just a tease (whether it's actually aimed at the Arthas hype or not), but we have seen the actor actually talk about the role of the Lich King previously. In several Instagram replies to one of the many fan photoshops of himself as Arthas, Cavill did seem to show some solid interest in the role, and it all started with an emoji response to this post:
      And here's the complex response, with Blizzard getting tagged:

      He then engaged in some fan interaction, starting with a nod at the previous rumors of him being the next Bond:
           
      And great response to a fair warning related to Cavill's missing his Man of Steel casting call because he was playing WoW:
       
        

      Many have actually commented that Cavill might be a bit too old for Arthas at this point, but considering the events on 9.1 and where the story might be going, who's to say an older, post-Maw Arthas isn't in the cards? It seems like a perfect stunt commercial type thing to tease a potentially bigger project like a TV series or even movie. After all, Metzen himself approves of Cavill in the role!
      But, getting back down to earth, this seems much more Witcher-related, with Season 2 of the show  still being shot, as Covid slowed things down. The Instagram post is probably just a tease that they're still shooting the show (possibly the finale, as the script seems to be relevant) and we're just getting too excited. But why shouldn't we get excited? A Warcaft TV show is just too good of a fit, even an animated one, so any movement we can stir up there can only be positive!

      You'd think the Arms Warrior hidden artifact appearance wouldn't really be all that relevant anymore, but since we can now transmog it in any spec, Strom'kar, the Warbreaker is getting very Axe-y is definitely worth mentioning. Warriors in the US who don't yet have it should be pretty happy today as the hidden  Arcanite Bladebreaker appearance is available, so hurry! Head to your Legion Order Hall and grab the Secrets of the Axes quest from Master Smith Helgar (he's over by the Forge of Odyn) and he will give you a quest where you must duel Saurfang to earn the hidden appearance. Shadowlands brought the ability to transmog weapons in other specs to the artifacts, so this is even more worth doing, and thanks to redditor CrebTheBerc for noticing! The quest is usually up for around a day.
        
      You'll need to have the Arms artifact unlocked, and it might actually be worth rolling a new Warrior and going through the (skippable) Legion intro to find out if the quest is available to lower level chars, as the quest comes around very infrequently.
