Talent Cheatsheet for Destruction Warlock
Demonic Circle should be placed roughly around the center of the room, or wherever is likely to be clear of Plasma Discharge. Destruction can unleash powerful cleave on the elevator, but be sure to have your cooldowns available for both active phases.
Warlocks should be among the last to cross the Defense Grid, as we do not have a convenient interrupt to deal with the Remnant of Corruption adds that spawn. The Demonic Gateway is a great tool for helping the raid deal with the Wind Tunnel, as it allows you to get a few extra casts off for free before gating away from the danger. Demonic Circle can be placed in each chamber for a similar advantage. Dark Pact is a strong option if your group does cross chambers in one go.
Ensure you have your cooldowns ready for the third chamber, as the boss takes 100% additional damage due to Depleted Energy.
Demonic Circle is a great way to deal with the Shockwave Stomp present on Heroic, although it is not available for every knockback. Save cooldowns for adds waves according to your raid strategy. If two adds are relatively close you can and should abuse Havoc.
Zek'voz, Herald of N'Zoth
Be sure to have your Cataclysm ready for each spawn of the Silithid Warriors. For the majority of the fight, however, single target damage will be your priority. When the Nerubian Voidweavers are active, Destruction does have a good opportunity to deliver powerful cleave damage.
Make good use of Demonic Circle throughout the fight, as there are a variety of mechanics that necessitate movement. Demonic Gateway is a particularly good tool for assisting with Eye Beam or Roiling Deceit. Warlocks make a great candidate for Orb of Corruption due to our exceptional damage cooldowns.
Add damage is key here, and as Destruction you can use Havoc to your advantage, just keep in mind you wont have it for every add. Both Demon Skin and Dark Pact are extremely helpful
Boss damage is what matters, Dark Soul: Instability will offer both higher burst and overall damage. You can use Cataclysm on Crawgs if you can afford it, to gain more shards and funnel more Chaos Bolts on Zul. Consider taking Dark Pact to help healers when soaking in Phase Two. Place both Demonic Gateway and Demonic Circle to minimize movements.
Mythrax the Unraveler
Plenty of opportunities for Havoc cleave so make sure to use it as much as you can. Demon Skin is a good option due to the frequent incoming damage. In Mythic try to save Cataclysm for at least 1 add wave in Phase Two and make use of Summon Felhunter to help with interrupt on the distant add during intermission.
Depending on the strategy and raid composition you will have to place Demonic Gateway and Demonic Circle in different places. In Mythic save Dark Soul: Instability for adds in Phase Two, but use Summon Infernal before beam.
