^ What about a decent CD on Soulburn in general ? Like 30 seconds. You can use it on the pull and for most target swaps / transitions. or idk, just tossing ideas at the wall here

With the removal of snapshotting we'll swap our dots to the target and be done with it, rather than sitting there bouncing it back and forth spending 1 gcd in between. I'm actually quite looking forward to it.
Also, thats not true, I like cabana
Just a quick question I'm currently using the macro, /cast [nochanneling:Malefic Grasp] Malefic Grasp, for malefic grasp and wondering whether malefic grasp has 3 or 4 ticks (a tick when malefic grasp ends) i.e should I be refreshing the channel after the third tick?
To answer your question, I think it has 4 IIRC but will go up to 5 per channel if you recast MG while it's still being channeled.
Thanks for the information changed my macro and hit 400k on malk today
Quick question, since i dont want to open a new topic and didnt manage to find answer for it.
I just dusted off my lock on 80 and leveled it to 90 as Destro, but it seeems sooo boooring. I've read somewhere Destro is the best spec for lower level of gear.
So my question at what iLvl i should look to get and switch to Affliction?
You can switch to Affliction on bosses which favor Affliction more than destro. Example: Protectors , Iron juggernaut(short fight) , Dark shamans, Nazgrim, Malkrok(short fight).
That said, you need Metagem, BBoY, and 9778+ haste(without gemming out of mastery) for Affliction to do any decent damage. I suggest you to switch between destro and affli around 555-560ilvl to compare the damage.
Destro is still very strong, even in BiS gear.

I've recently obtained BBoY LFR version and oh boy, the happiness when your 10 stacks line with other procs such as triple windsong & other haste thinkets... the dots are ridiculously powerful, even for a 508 ilvl version of them :P
Might be a stupid question, but I just want to make sure - first time playing a warlock, always been a rogue / deathknight. Let's say you get monster dots at the pull and want to keep them for as long as possible on single target fights, there's like 3-4 seconds of them remaining and there are no trinket procs - is it better to let the powerful ones just expire and then reapply the weaker ones, or by casting a dot while it's not yet worn off it will refresh the duration of the current one, but preserve it's power? It's a dumb question, I've realized just now and already got my answer, but you know, paranoia and all...
Taken from icy-veins.
The implication of Pandemic and the fact that DoTs benefit from your statistics as they were when you applied them is that whenever a DoT has less than 50% of its normal duration remaining, you should refresh it, if you have better statistics than when you cast it (trinket proc, Dark Soul, potion, encounter-specific buff, etc.). Otherwise, refresh the DoT when it is about to expire
Here's the situation: 10 stacks of BBOY, 2 secs left and I start casting chaos bolt - will the chaos bolt still be 10stacks buffed when it's cast finishes?(3-4 seconds, so it's a second or two after BBOY expires)
Won't be buffed.
It "looks" at your stats when the cast ends, not when it starts.
is aff with mannoroths fury viable for h shams or no?
