As I stated in one of my other threads (Sub. Rogue suggestions), I have just recently returned to the game, and have not played my Lock since TBC, almost ten years now, perhaps just a tad has changed, eh? Ha!
Ergo, I wanted to get some feedback on an appropriate build/spec. for Affliction in PvP, focused primarily on solo-BG's. I have done some research online, and read a fairly good amount on what the typical cookie-cutter is as of 7.2 (http://www.noxxic.co...builds-talents/), etc. According to what I've come across, apparently Aff. is pretty gimped/weak at the moment (Destro, being the general go-to), in regards to PvP, however as a casual just returning to the game, I am not going to be climbing the upper echelons of rated, and have always very much enjoyed playing this sub., so that's what I'll be doing.
As such, the first few talents have been split in what appears to be the favored build, etc. The talents "Writhe in Agony" & "Absolute Corruption" seem to be the pick here, over "Malefic Grasp" & "Contagion." Now I'm no pro by any means, especially when it comes to my Lock, however I've done some "theory crafting," crunching the numbers, and it would seem that breaking it down for the 15 and 30 talents, both "Grasp," and "Contagion," out damage the other two ("Agony" & "Corruption), no? I have also found a few fairly recent videos supporting this case as well. The next few talents chosen (according to the most recent/up to date guide I could find, that contradict the aforementioned noxxic guide) are:
45: Howl of Terror over Demonic Circle
75: Demon Skin over Dark Pact
90: Grimoire of Service over Grimoire of Supremacy
Once again, I could be completely off-base here, as I now defer to your collective judgement.
Please provide your best feedback on what I should be focusing on talent-wise, rotation, pets (situational, but I imagine Felhunter spell-lock would be preferred, no?) and stat priority, etc. (I'm somewhat surprised to see "Haste" being the number one stat to buff-out; once again being inactive for almost ten years now).
Thanks in advance for your input & suggestions all, much appreciated as always,
(For your convenience)
