So I finally got my legendary a few weeks ago (yay) and expected some really good dps increases but really didn't see much. This was in demo. I switched over to Afflic and did worse which I kind of expected since I haven't played afflic in several months. I should mention, I like to think I play fairly well. I'm properly enchanted, reforged, etc as I should be. I have all the rotations down and use buttontimers to make sure all my dots are refreshed when needed...blah blah blah. I practiced quite a bit on dummies then tried LFR again with afflic. Was not doing as well as expected again...hmm. I did notice, however, the #1 dps was a lock using destro. I checked out his gear and his stuff was almost exactly the same as mine bar some heroics that I don't have.
Switched to destro and took a few days running instances and testing dummies since I hadn't played destro since Lich King. Long story short, went to LFR and freakin rocked the place. #1 DPS by a LARGE margin. Then raided with my guild (25 man) and kicked ass in there too!! What I don't get...I play demo much better than either destro or afflic since I've been playing it for ages. If so, why is destro outperforming demo?? The legendary, according to recount, only procs ~ 2% in destro compared to ~6% while demo. Everything, and I mean EVERYTHING (here, EJ, Warlocks Den, etc), I've read says that this should not be the case. All I can boil it down to is that I'm better at destro than demo (don't believe it for a second though).
Anyone else experience this? Is this working as intended? For what it's worth, I pulled 36.5K on Ultraxion as demo and 38.5K as destro. Shouldn't it be the other freak'in way around?
Any insight would be appreciated. Cheers.
