Like the topic says, I have no idea how level my destruction warlock artifact. I can't seem to find any guide on it anywhere. Do anyone have a good guide or can help out on the priority? 

 

I leveled this fairly recently, so I need to be extra smart with the traits I pick as I can't grab to many at the moment.

I went straight for chaos bolt damage, I'm wondering with cremation if buffing immolate will be the way to go however. Would like to hear from some destros with xp this xpac.

You should definitely go for lord of flames (burning hunger mostly) and impish incineration first (you should play sac vs a lot of cleaves where interrupt isn't important). Then depending if you're going to play a comp where you can utilize chaos bolt spam, or a high dmg pressure comp (feral/destro?), you're going to either go down for chaos bolt dmg or up for more immolate+conflag dmg. Personally I'd skip dimensional ripper if you're only planning to pvp as destro, you will almost never cast incinerate in arena.

 

At the end of the day it doesn't matter much, slightly more immolate/conflag dmg, or a decent boost to chaos bolt. If you are scarce on artifact power, I would probably just go lord of flames+impish incineration and then straight for -30sec cd on unending resolve, and then continue from there, depending on which playstyle (cremation or focused chaos) works the best for my comp.

 

Remember to suicide off a flying mount after every arena to reset lord of flames cd :)))))))))))))))))))

If you play sac the imp dmg buff trait actually buffs the sac buff dmg by 50%.

care to make a few considerations about destro play atm?

when should i use sac, doom or infernal?

could your share your talent/pvp builds?

whats the "optimal rotation" on arenas?

If i want to do pve and pvp too with my destro weapon, should I go for Master of disaster (mostly not using in pvp, only sometimes, also low prior in pve guides) or Fire from the sky (wont really use this in pvp either but a good trait for trash/dungeons)?

thats not how high ranked arena worked, and will never work

you can obviously stick to one specc an do very well with it as you will be most likely better than other people with it

 

 

but if blizzard invites you to a gunfight and sends you an uzi to compete with, you rather not wanna turn up with just a knife in your hand to the party

if its a monster knife and you are a ninja, you probably still kill everyone, but you could have done all that probably aswell by just firing your uzi, and that could have saved you 20 years of training in a monastery
