#4085347 Aoe Seed of Corruption Soulburn is awesome, Archseeding

Posted Diasleramo on 23 March 2014 - 05:09 PM

So I've been working hard on a super awesome start that's been absolutely unstoppable. I call it Sword Blasting. What I like to do is spec into avatar (People usually don't like to do this until they try it, sooper awesome wicked damage). Then what you want to do next is pop recklessness with skull banner, trinket and avatar! This new trick seems to be really effective if done correctly. Remember it's called Sword Blasting. Have fun with it.


#4074736 s15 new gear new haste breakpoints for affliction ?

So I read this topic and If I understand well haste increases dot dps linearly so I shouldn't worry about breakpoints and just go full haste ???
try with full haste, see if you like it
try with full mastery, see if you like it
play with which ever one you find more comfortable
don't spend 15 hours simcrafting your gear to find the exact mastery haste combination that will result in 27 dps more then any other option, since this is pvp not pve

but yes, breakpoints don't matter for dot dps

Destruction Warlock Guide (5.4.7)

Posted Image


This guide is written mainly for players new to playing destruction in arenas / PvP.

Introduction

Destruction is different from both affliction & demo because it uses an alternative resource named  « Burning Embers ». These embers are used for bursting with Chaos Bolt and Shadowburn as well as healing with ember tap.

Strengths :
  • Insane burst damage during dark soul with Chaos bolt and Shadowburn.
  • Chaos bolt is the best bolt in the game.
  • Shadowburn is the best finisher in the game.
  • You can heal yourself with ember tap.
  • You can duplicate Mortal Coil or Spell Lock onto two targets with Havoc. This will help you getting Chaos Bolts off.
  • You can duplicate chaos bolt onto two targets with Havoc.
Weaknesses :
  • This spec relies too much on dark soul & chaos bolt to score kills and It’s hard to get chaos bolts off in world of interruptcraft. It’ll require a lot of effort to setup kills.
  • You have less passive damage mitigation than other warlock's specs.
PvP Talents

Level 15 : Dark Regeneration

Posted Image

You want to pick dark regeneration. This talent will be your « panic button » when you’re unable to teleport/gate to avoid incoming burst damage.

Level 30 : Mortal Coil

Posted Image
  
You want to pick Mortal Coil. This spell is great to create freecast windows for your chaos bolt. With Havoc you can double coil your kill target and the other dps that is sitting on you to prevent them from interrupting your chaos bolt.

Shadowfury is also not bad for destro and it is on a shorter CD, it can be a viable choice if your team doesn’t have any reliable stuns but I feel like Mortal Coil fits the destro playstyle better.

Level 45 : Soul link or Dark Bargain

Posted Image

For 3s arenas you want to pick Dark Bargain, use it to counter major bursts cooldowns from your opponents when you’re unable to teleport/gate.

For 2s as double dps or duels soul link is a great choice, the self regen will help you survive longer also the increased hp pool is great because ember tap scales with your hp%.

Sacrificial Pact is useless due to the fact that it doesn’t ignore Battle Fatigue.

Level 60 : Unbound Will

Posted Image

For non-humans : You want to pick Unbound Will all the time to be able to play with double damage trinkets. Be careful when using Unbound Will, It’ll trigger spells that have a dispell protection such as Unstable Affliction.

For humans : You can switch between Blood Horror against melee cleaves and Unbound Will against Caster cleaves. Notice that Blood Horror can be grounded or spell reflected so you’ll need a cancelaura macro for blood horror. (see macro section)

Level 75 : Grimoire of Sacrifice

Posted Image

You want to pick Grimoire of Sacrifice to get a 25% damage bonus to your single target spells. You’ll sacrifice the felhunter to get the spell lock with Command Demon. Against hunters cleaves you can also sacrifice the Imp to be able to dispell traps on your healer with singe magic.

Level 90 : Archimonde's Darkness

Posted Image

You’ll be able to burst more often with this talent. Always try to sync dark soul with your surge of dominance proc otherwise your burst will be significantly weaker. I recommend you to use an addon like Weakauras or ExtraCD to track your Insignia of dominance Internal Cooldown.

Glyphs :

Posted Image
  • Eternal Resolve (Mandatory) : 10% damage reduction will make you more tanky and due to the fact that as destro you play with Dark Bargain you NEED passive damage mitigation.
  • Conflagrate  (Mandatory) :  Conflagrate no longer requires Immolate to snare the target. This glyph will greatly improve your quality of life.
  • Havoc  (Highly Recommended) : With this glyph you’ll be able to follow your double coil with a double chaos bolt. Demonic circle is also a viable choice if you feel you are getting trained a lot.
Stats Priorities / Gearing / Enchants / Gemming / Reforge / professions / Best races

Stats priorities :

Your stats priorities goes as follow :

6% hit > Intellect > Mastery > Crit > Haste

Mastery is your best stat after intellect. 200 mastery = 1% dmg to Chaos Bolt & Shadowburn. Incinerate, immolate and fel flame also benefits from mastery.

Then it’s crit, not only it increases the damage of your chaos bolt & other damage abilities but it also increases your ember generation.

Haste is your least valuable stat as destro.

Gear :

You’ll pick all the Prideful Gladiator’s five set and the following offpieces with mastery & crit :
Neck – Prideful Gladiator’s Pendant of Cruelty  
Back – Prideful Gladiator's Drape of Prowess
Wrists – Prideful Gladiator’s Cuffs of Prowess
Waist – Prideful Gladiator’s Cord of Cruelty
Feet – Prideful Gladiator’s Treads of Cruelty

Enchants :

Head - None
Shoulders – 200 Int / 100 Crit
Back – Ligthweave Embroidery or 180 int
Chest – 80 to all Stats
Wrist – 180 Int
Hands – 170 Mastery
Waist– Living Steel Belt Buckle
Legs – 285 Int / 165 Crit
Feet – 140 Mastery / Run Speed
Main Hand Weapon – Jade Spirit or Spirit of Conquest
Offhand Weapon – 165 Int

Gemming :

Red : 80 int + 160 mastery
Blue :  160 mastery + 160 hit
Yellow : 320 mastery
Meta : 216 int and 3% Increased critical effect

Reforge :

Reforge for 6% hit then mastery. If you struggle with reforging, you can install the addon reforgelite and use it with the stats priorities I’ve gave you above.

You can also copy thugonomics armory :
http://us.battle.net...gonomicz/simple

Best Professions :

Tailoring for ligthweave embroidery (2k int proc) + any prof that gives a passive intellect bonus, alchemy is the cheapest one to level since it only requires you to level it to 300 to get the 320 int flask.

Engineering is not interesting due to the fact that as destro you always play with double damage trinkets to maximize your burst output and you cannot stack synapse springs with the pvp on-use damage trinket.

Best races :

Alliance : Human is the best due to the fact that when they equip double damage trinkets they are still able to escape CCs with their racial "Every man for Himself". Also they got an expertise bonus for playing with 1h swords that allow them to reforge a bit more hit into mastery.

Horde : Orc is the best for the blood fury racial that you can add in your burst macro (see macro section) for more burst. Also the 15% stun duration reduction from hardiness is nice.

Rotation :


How to generate Burning Embers efficiently as destro :
Posted Image

#1 Rain of fire, this instant cast spell is great to generate embers especially when your opponents are clustered together. However be careful when using it, this spell can break CCs.  

#2 Immolate is also a great ability to generate embers especially if you apply it on multiple targets. Never fakecast it, this spell is on the fire tree so if someone interrupts you then you are free to cast Chaos Bolt or Fear that are on your shadow tree.

#3 Conflagrate, this instant cast spell is good for building embers but always save 1 charge for your next burst attempt.

#4 Incinerate, this is your main filler. Never fakecast it, this spell is on the fire tree so if someone interrupts you then you are free to cast Chaos Bolt or Fear that are on your shadow tree.

How to burst as destro in arenas :

To burst you need to have 1 charge of conflagrate ready and at least two embers. Your goal is to bring your target to execute range with Chaos Bolt and finish it with Shadowburn :

Posted Image
#1 Wait for your surge of dominance proc.

#2 Use Conflagrate to proc Backdraft (30% faster Chaos Bolt cast).

#3 Pop your dark soul burst macro then cast a chaos bolt (cf : macro section).

#4 Execute your target with Shadowburn. If your target is not in execute range use Conflagrate or spam Fel flame or incinerate to bring your target in execute range.

If you want to burst but are afraid about being interrupted on your chaos bolt you can still use dark soul to spam incinerates, it’ll still do good damage then if you are interrupted on incinerate you are free to cast chaos bolt.

How to quickly generate embers in BG/RBG with Fire & Brimstone :

If 5+ opponents are clustered together (pets included) get off a F&B + Immolate and then use Rain of Fire, it’ll quickly generate a lot of embers. Remember that fire & brimstone + immolate can break CCs so be careful when using it.

How to burst as destro in BG/RBG with Fire & Brimstone against 5+ opponents clustered together :

It’s a very good idea to use F&B + Immolate with dark soul in RBG because you'll get more immolate crits and your ember generation will be insanely good, this will allow you to literally "spam" chaos bolts on your kill target. Your burst rotation against 5+ opponents clustered together in BG/RBG should look like this :

Posted Image

Basic Arenas tips :

As destro you have to rely on triple CC to get Chaos bolts off so wait for your surge of dominance proc then fear the enemy healer and use double coil or howl or stuns from your teamates on the kill target + the other dps to prevent them from interrupting your chaos bolt. Then when everyone is CCed pop your burst macro and cast a double Chaos Bolt on your kill target and the other dps with havoc. This kind of opener will force a lot of defensive cooldowns then wait for your insignia of dominance ICD to come back and try to score a kill with your second charge of dark soul.

Setting up kills as destro requires time and effort and it can be frustrating sometimes, anyways don’t get discouraged.

Between two dark souls, you should generate embers and spam fear on  the DPS to avoid counterpressure. Try to save your Fear DR on the enemy healer for your next burst attempt. If you are sitting at 4 embers try to get a CB off.

Viable setups :

2s :

Boomy/destro
Rsham/destro
Feral/destro

3s :   

LSD : destro/ele/rdruid
LSM : destro/ele/mistweaver monk
MLS : frost or arcane mage /destro/rsham
MLD : frost or arcane mage /destro/rdruid
MLHpala : frost or arcane mage/destro/rdruid

#4078120 Affliction Warlock Guide (5.4.7)

Posted glonglon on 13 March 2014 - 12:27 PM

Affliction Warlock Guide (5.4.7)


Posted Image



This guide is written mainly for players new to playing affliction in arenas / PvP.

Strengths :

-   Good spread pressure and even better spread pressure with dark soul.
-   Good single target pressure with dark soul & haunt.
-   Good cleaving in BG/RBG with Seed of Corruption.

Weaknesses :

-   Due to your low mobility (you’re limited to teleport/gate), your spammable CC and the fact that you only have one panic button (dark regeneration) your opponents will train you all day.

-   This is the warlock’s spec with the lowest surviviability, you don’t have embers to heal yourself like destro does, you  don’t have good damage mitigation like demo does. To survive you can only rely on your good positioning.

PvP Talents

Level 15 : Dark Regeneration

Posted Image

You want to pick dark regeneration. This talent will be your « panic button » when you’re unable to teleport/gate to avoid incoming burst damage.

Level 30 : Shadowfury or Mortal Coil

Posted Image
  
if your team doesn’t have any reliable stuns you’ll pick Shadowfury. Shadowfury is a great starter for your CC chains, for example you can shadowfury the enemy healer so he won’t be able to go out of your line of sight then you can full fear him.

If your team already has reliable stuns you’ll pick Mortal coil because it doesn’t share DR with stuns.

Level 45 : Soul Link

Posted Image

You want to pick Soul link when playing with Grimoire of Supremacy because it scales pretty well with the glyph of eternal resolve & resilience.

When playing with Grimoire of Sacrifice you don't have any pet so you'll pick Dark Bargain because Soul Link is not interesting without pet. You'll use Dark Bargain to counter major bursts cooldown from your opponents when you're unable to teleport/gate.

Sacrificial pact is useless due to the fact that it doesn't ignore battle fatigue.


Level 60 : Blood Horror or Unbound Will

Posted Image

In arenas, you’ll use blood horror against meleecleaves and Unbound Will against castercleaves.

Notice that Blood Horror can be grounded or spell reflected so you’ll need a cancelaura macro for blood horror. (see macro section)

If you successfully horrify a melee with blood horror then you can fear him without any risks of being interrupted. This will allow your healer to breathe.

Be careful when using Unbound Will, It’ll trigger spells that have a dispell protection such as Unstable Affliction.

Level 75 : Grimoire of Supremacy

Posted Image

You want to pick grimoire of Supremacy against teams that doesn't train your pet, It’ll turn your felhunter into an observer. Basically it’s the same pet but with a bigger HP pool so he is less susceptible to die through soul link damage. The Observer also does decent damage and can dispell one magical effect with clone magic. Don't let your clone magic on autocast, you want to dispell key magic abilities like fear ward.

You want to use Grimoire of Sacrifice against teams that like to train your pet or teams with a lot of spread pressure like LSD. You'll sacrifice the felhunter to get the spell lock. Against hunter's teams you can also sacrifice the Imp to be able to dispell freezing traps on your healer with singe magic.

Level 90 : Archimonde's Darkness

Posted Image

For arenas you'll pick Archimonde's Darkness, you’ll be able to burst more often with this talent. Always try to sync dark soul with your surge of dominance proc otherwise your burst will be significantly  weaker. I recommend you to use an addon like Weakauras or ExtraCD to track your Insignia of dominance Internal Cooldown.

For BG/RBG you'll pick Mannoroth's fury to be able to cleave with seed of corruption.

Glyphs :

Posted Image

-   Eternal Resolve (Mandatory) : 10% damage reduction will make you more tanky.
-   Unstable Affliction (Mandatory) : Faster UA will greatly improve your quality of life.
-   Siphon Life (Recommended) : You have a bit of choice for your third glyph slot, I like Siphon Life because the healing over time is nice and steady but you can replace this glyph by glyph of Healthstone, Demonic circle is also nice if you feel you are getting trained a lot. Coex glyph, helps in lots of situations especially peeling or stopping someone from LOSing your ccs.


Stats Priorities / Gearing / Enchants / Gemming / Reforge / professions / Best races

Stats priorities :

Your stats priorities goes as follow :

6% hit > Intellect > Haste =  Mastery > Crit

Haste vs Mastery debate :

Affliction benefits from both Haste and Mastery.

Haste gives you : extra ticks to your dots, extra soul shards, faster GCD and faster casts time so you’re less susceptible of being interrupted. With a haste gemming & reforge your playstyle will be a bit more dynamic.

Mastery gives you : more DoTs damage. 193.5 mastery = +1% damage to your Agony, Unstable Affliction and Corruption which is very good. With a mastery gemming & reforge your DoTs will be a bit stronger.

Most of the high rated warlocks tends to prefer the full haste gemming & reforge playstyle but my advice for you is to try full haste & full mastery and see which playstyle suits you best. Remember that whatever your choice will be it’ll not make or break your dps.

Gear :

You’ll pick all the Prideful Gladiator’s five set and the following offpieces with Haste & mastery :

Neck – Prideful Gladiator’s Pendant of Alacrity
Back – Prideful Gladiator's Drape of Prowess
Wrists – Prideful Gladiator’s Cuffs of Prowess
Waist – Prideful Gladiator’s Cord of Accuracy  for non-humans or Prideful Gladiator’s Cord of Cruelty for humans.
Feet – Prideful Gladiator’s Treads of Alacrity


Enchants :

Head - None
Shoulders – 200 Int / 100 Crit
Back – Ligthweave Embroidery or 180 int
Chest – 80 to all Stats
Wrist – 180 Int
Hands – 170 Mastery or 170 Haste
Waist– Living Steel Belt Buckle
Legs – 285 Int / 165 Crit
Feet – 140 Mastery / Run Speed
Main Hand Weapon – Jade Spirit or Spirit of Conquest
Offhand Weapon – 165 Int

Gemming :

Haste playstyle :

Red : 80 int + 160 haste
Blue : 160 haste + 160 hit
Yellow : 320 haste
Meta : 665 pvp power and 775 PvP Resilience

Mastery playstyle :

Red : 80 int + 160 mastery
Blue :  160 mastery + 160 hit
Yellow : 320 mastery
Meta : 665 pvp power and 775 resilience

Reforge :  

Reforge for 6% hit then follow the stats priorities I’ve gave you above. If you struggle with reforging, you can install the addon reforgelite.

Professions :

For a Human : tailoring for ligthweave embroidery (2k int proc) + Herbalism for lifeblood (+7% on-use haste buff that you’ll add into your dark soul burst macro).
For a Non-human : engineering for synapse springs (2k int on-use) + tailoring

Best races :

Alliance : Human is the best due to the fact that they are able to play with double damage trinkets. Also they got an expertise bonus for playing with 1h swords that will allow them to reforge a bit more hit into more haste or mastery.

Horde : Troll is the best for the berserking racial that you'll add into your burst macro (see macro section) for more burst.

Gameplay

Rotation :

Your rotation is pretty simple as affliction, first you apply your row of DoTs to a target, then you spread them to nearby targets with soul swap and to conclude you mash fear with every other globals :

Posted Image

#1 First you want to apply Agony, it’s a ramp up time dot, at one stack it is your weakest DoT but at 10 stacks it’s your strongest DoT, so make sure to always refresh it when it is about to end to keep it ticking at 10 stacks.

#2 Then you want to apply Unstable Affliction, it is your second best DoT and it provides dispell protection.

#3 You’ll apply Corruption, this is your weakest DoT but it can proc Nightfall for free soulshards.

#4 Soulswap your DoTs to nearby targets, if there are no nearby targets skip to #5

#5 Apply Curse of the Elements when you have nothing better to do.

#6 Use Malefic grasp as a filler, if you’re afraid of being interrupted use Fel Flame instead. Tbh, you’ll rarely use these abilities due to the fact that you have more important things to do like spamming fears, refreshing your dots, soul swapping, or applying curses.  Yes, You’re pretty much GCD starved as affliction.

About Drain soul :

This is your « execute » ability you’ll use it as a filler against targets below 20% health.

Understanding DoTs snapshotting (When to apply/refresh DoTs) :

When you apply or refresh DoTs your character’s stats are « snapshotted » therefore damage is calculated from the « snapshot » AT THE TIME of application.  

Using Dark Soul will not automatically empower the DoTs you previously applied, you’ll have to refresh them so they’ll benefit from the 30% haste buff, then you’ll start soulswapping those stronger DoTs to nearby targets.

Always apply/refresh your DoTs when you have buffs that increases your spellpower or your haste like Dark Soul and Surge of Dominance. The basic rule is to apply your DoTs when you have dark soul/procs buffs up and to refresh them when those buffs are about to expire.

On the other hand, you never want to replace your stronger dots by weaker dots. if your character’s stats are significantly weaker than when you applied them don’t refresh ! (e.g Your Dark Soul buff ended but your Dark Soul DoTs are still rolling)

You also don’t want to apply/refresh your dots if you have debuffs on your character (e.g rogue’s nerve strike).

Affdots is an incredibly helpful addon. This addon compares dots on target with your current stats and shows if reapplying DoTs will make them stronger or weaker.

In the coming extension « Warlords of Draenor » DoTs will scale dynamically with your stats so you’ll no longer need to worry about refreshing or not your DoTs.


Understanding Soul swap :

Soulswap is the ability that you’ll use to spread your DoTs to nearby targets. To use Soul Swap efficiently you need to understand the previous chapter about DoTs snapshotting.

Soul swap works in 2 times (Inhale & Exhale) :

First step, Soul swap : Inhale : It copies the DoTs you applied on your target but also their duration.

Second step, Soul swap : Exhale : It applies the dots you previously inhaled to another target. (Must be a different target from inhalation)

You always want to Inhale DoTs with high duration. If you inhale DoTs that are about to fade you’ll also exhale DoTs that are about to fade and this is pretty much useless...

Understanding Soulburn : soul swap & Pandemic :

Soulburn : soulswap costs 1 shard and instantly apply your 3 dots to the target.

Warlocks got a passive ability called pandemic that extends DoTs duration by 50% if you apply your DoTs twice. What I like to do in the arena opener is to apply a full row of DoTs to a target, then use dark soul and soulburn : soulwap the same target to empower and extend the DoTs duration, then I start spreading those DoTs with my regular soulswap. Thanks to the extended DoTs duration, you’ll be able to soulswap DoTs to more targets.

How to use Haunt properly :

The main purpose of Haunt is to create pressure on a single target so you’ll use it primarily on the kill target, however haunt damage can be easily healed through.

For this reason, you’ll cast haunt on the kill target only if the enemy healer is CC’ed, look for fear opportunities on the enemy healer before casting haunt.  if you cast haunt on the kill target when the enemy healer is free to cast heals on his teamates you basically wasted a soul shard.

What I like to do in 3s is to fear the enemy healer then cast haunt on the kill target and the other dps if I can. Sometimes, it's hard to get haunt casts off because smart opponents will be aware that it's one of your key damage abilities and will try to interrupt it.


About Seed of Corruption :

This spell is great for Cleaving in BG/RBG. If your opponents are clustered together Soul burn : Seed of Corruption becomes better than haunt. Notice that you can stack the regular seed of corruption and the soulburn : Seed of Corruption on the same target.

How to burst in BG/RBG with Mannoroth's fury  :

Posted Image

How to burst as affliction in Arenas with dark soul :
Posted Image

Basic Arenas tips

During the opener you’ll wait for your surge of dominance proc, It’ll usually happen when you apply your first row of DoTs to a target, then pop your burst macro (cf : macro section) and refresh your dots with soulburn : soul swap to empower them and extend their duration thanks to pandemic then start spreading those powerful DoTs to nearby targets (including pets) with your regular soul swap,  don’t spread your DoTs to the enemy healer if you want to CC him. If the enemy healer is CC’ed apply haunt on the kill target and the other dps if you can. Use Malefic grasp or Fel Flame as a filler but you usually have better things to do like fearing.  Don’t forget to refresh your DoTs when dark soul is about to expire, then soul swap them again. That kind of opener will force a lot of defensive cooldowns from your opponents, then wait for your insignia of dominance ICD to come back and try to score a kill with your second charge of dark soul.

Between two dark souls keep your DoTs rolling on as much targets as possible (cf : rotation chapter) and spam fear on the DPS. Try to save your Fear DR on the enemy healer for your next burst attempt.

Viable setups :

2s :

Boomy/affli
Rsham/affli

3s :

LSD : Affli/ele/rdruid
WLS : warrior/affli/rsham
MLS : frost mage /affli/rsham
RLS : sub rogue/affli/rsham
HLS : survival hunter/affli/rsham

#4078528 Affliction Warlock Guide (5.4.7)

Posted Bluckstack on 13 March 2014 - 09:30 PM

i wouldnt recommend use any addon to track how strong your dots are, when you are a dotter you need to be ONE with your dots, thats what you are and all you are aiming to be, the same you do when you walk on the street, you dont think about how to walk, you just walk.... here its the same you dont question yourself about if yours dots have the haste of DS or the tailoring proc you just know that because you re in control of the game and you re totally aware of what you re doing, you dont need any help from any addon the same you dont need any help to walk.

Anyways extremely solid guides, cant think about anything else better for beginners or even people who is just trying to get better.



Good job :)

I post it in relevant forums, if you can make one solid argument as to why the video is not relevant to this thread/OP I'm all ears. Call my crazy but when a topic is about blood horror and the op is a feral Druid that stated, "it ruins your opener completely" I think posting a "how to video" demonstrating removing BH on several classes including a feral seems pretty logical. Perhaps you're under the impression that I'm in some way trying to get an ego boost, but that couldn't be further from the truth...I know it's hard to believe in a community such as this.

tbh mate, nice find and good explanation. But he's right, don't go hunting for threads about this to pimp your wcm movie. If people really found Blood Horror and issue, they would have done their own homework and scrolled down the frickin page. Instead they post a generic "spell / class X is shite, nerf plx" and you want to assist.

If he isn't bothered to do any research, don't spoon feed him how to play. The thread you mad is like 6 below this one entitled, "how to remove blood horror 100% of the time". Yet he makes this thread ..... jeez.

there shouldn't be a difference, with an 8 second cooldown on dispel a spammable cc should have to break on any damage, especially because of UA dispel protection

You understand that such a change would basically stop warlocks, a dot class, from applying dots to more than one target, right?

What difference in role or playstyle (bar damage rotation) would warlocks then have from mages?

I don't really think you'd be that good as a class designer.

We will be ok. Back when we didn't have KJC, locks were so fun. I remember the mana drain days. Dot up and Drain all day. Didn't even have fel flame back then. Just readjust and collect points. Losing KJC puts us in a better place I think ( I hope).

its really annoying having to adapt again every season..

I'm finding it very difficult to get used to not moving around and chasing people on mounts in bgs while casting....I am beginning to wish the talent was never implemented...yeah we can cast 1 spell for each spec while moving now, but it's just not the same.

I've played lock since first season of wrath so im use to the no moving style, but i totally agree KJC should have never been in game period. spoiled to many people and the playstyle we all loved.

So if what feedback im getting from streams and posts is correct is it erm, Welcome Back Warlock Overlords dance time?

I don't get how you can actually get any sort of negative response out of this. We needed dmg reduction and now we're getting it. All it will require is more pet management, which has NEVER been difficult. I realize people like to tunnel pets into the ground when they can- I do it, but there are ways of preventing your pet from dying. Also, so long as we have shards, which aren't hard to get either, you can SB a new pet out.

Again, just stop fucking complaining.


Of course you can keep your pet alive. But if you play against lsd2 for example you spend more time channeling health funnel than doing damage if you play with a pet. I am playing a pet class because i like to have a pet and i do not want to be forced into gosac just because its impossible to keep pets alive against high pressure comps.

but yeah, you are right. when i made the post i was mainly thinking about lsd2 (since i faced it alot yesterday) when considering the changes and the fact that it mainly forces the opposing team to kill the pet before attacking the warlock. this means pets will die even more often (unless you want to tell me you can heal the pet against focus damage).

i do not like this change because of it being a weak one for warlocks but because i dont like the consequences it has. i think it will force some binary playstyle like gateway currently does: if the pet is up you cant kill the warlock, if it is down the warlock is the best target ingame. to be honest i really think its way too strong but i can only definitely comment on that when the ptr is updated.

next time i ll explain more in detail.


#3913354 How did you setup your pet and Fel Fame question

Posted Qlimaxx on 14 July 2013 - 07:16 PM

Hey you. This is my experience, not saying it’s the ultimate truth or whatever.
Put it on passive and get used to pressing Ctrl+1 whenever you want it to attack. This is mainly because of two things:
1) If it’s on Assist, it will sometimes run around from target to target when I multidot, back and forth, aka creating “downtime” where it doesn’t hit anything.
2) You want it to be on Passive anyway if you want it to perform jobs like staying on healer to keep him from drinking or taking traps from a hunter (which is just “Move To” on top of the trap, no macro needed).

Be aware that the pet will stop attacking a target that gets Feared, aka you’ll probably have to press Ctrl+1 several times in the game. And be aware also, that you also sometimes want to send it in to attack, if it then runs out of spell lock range of enemy healer.


Now I’m just gonna mention some macros aswell, that I find useful.


Quote

/cast [target=mouseover,exists][] Fel Flame; Fel Flame

Fel Flame macro that makes it easy to kill totems with it. Just mouseover the totem, and if you don’t have a mouseover it will hit your current target. Other uses for Fel Flame is to extend the duration of UA+Corr without having to cast (and risk getting CS’d).. fx when the dots are about to fall off.


I have Clone Magic on automatic, but I also have a single manual use for it, which is a “get rogues out of stealth” macro

Quote

#showtooltip Clone Magic

/dismount

/cast [target=mouseover] Clone Magic

/cast [target=mouseover] Devour Magic

Only worth if you get sapped and see the rogue afterwards, but hey take it or leave it :D


Anyway, hope it helped and as always feel free to ask more questions!

Lol, no I understand that most players don't have this sort of micro management capabilities. But he says he's doing it manually, he swears down he is, so I'll believe him until he gets banned. Blizzard will do their job they usually do their job quite well when it comes to hacks or scripts in arena.

I would like to point out to those who don't realise, that is not me in the video at all. I don't play like that one bit.


yea if theres one thing blizzard does its ban people over scripts and shit in arena.   oh wait interrupt hacking has been happening by hundreds of thousands of people for years.


if you honestly can't see, just from simple game mechanics, and even the things I and several others have posted, you might want to look into getting checked by a head doctor.

But all your posts just scream out: "i'm playing with a cheater, well aware that he cheats, and we got found out, but I still need to defend our internet credibility".





edit:  also, its even more obvious when the first video gets removed, and then the ones that got reupped get reported rofl.  definitely not trying to hide anything.
