In 25man too you get pushed back with KJC. At the first Get Away when there aren't many stacks I almost get back in the stairs
Ive been playing afflic all teir long (currently 9/16h) but ive always wanted to be destro just havnt been able to really get it down. Ive now watched all of Zumzum and brusalks videos and im really impressedd by what it can do. After doing miserably last night on our HC ambershaper attempts as afflic i really want to give destro a shot and i have all this weekend now before next weeks lockout to get my reforged and gems down and do a lot of practice in lfr's. Now on to the questions.
I noticed that Brusalk you use 2-piece teir and have are using 502 ilvl crit off pieces, is that something you are doing by choice or because you have been unlucky in teir drops and are not able to have 4 piece yet?. I currently have the teir: shoulders,chest, legs, and gloves (all 496) but i could potential swap out the gloves and chest with the 502 crit+mastery gear gloves and chest from stonegaurd and feng. Would you recommend this over using the 4 set?
i ran a bunch of sims last night and found that even after gemming Full int gems in almost every slot that int is still my highest value stat, problem is that my mastery drops to about 54% when i do this route. the 2 main sims i ran are Full int gems (~17k int, ~54% ish mastery) and using all hybrid int+mastery gems (~16.2k int, 61% mastery). I simmed about 300 dps higher using the lower int higher mastery gem scheme, but even in full int gems , int is still my strongest scale value, something like int:4.08, mastery:1.93. What do i do with my gems?

Hi, even if this is my first post, i'm not new on this forum, and i thanks you all for all the info and the tips i learned from here. My main is felblood at nagrand US. Destro lock, mainly doing lfr and hopefully starting normal mode tomorrow. For that i would like to ask a couple of questions:
1) i'm currently giving more love to crit instead of mastery. Doing so i'm usually in the first three spots in dps (doing around 73k dps). But because all the guides states mastery is better i would like to know if i'm doing wrong or if it's an acceptable alternative way.
2) i have mantle of the golden Sun and robe of eternal rule in bank. In your opinion is better to stick on 4 lfr Tier set bonus, or just use those higher ilev items and two pieces set bonus?
Excuse me for my poor english, it's not my mother language. Looking for advice i thanks all again!

It definitely works !
Though sometimes i dnk what's better, launch Chaos Bolt or Shadowburn. (2nd damage is soooo low comparing to crit from first).
I guess it didn't really make sense to base your decision off mana problems considering Chaos Bolts don't cost mana which I didn't think of. I'm sure there must be a valid reason why we use shadowburn over chaos bolt.
If Shadowburn crits it's a lot more damage then Chaosbolt. Also the damage per cast time is way in favor of Shadowburn. I was wondering this myself for a while, but once you see Shadowburn crit for over a million it takes some of the wondering away. Maybe it's different with haste procs.
Something isn't right.
I'm not able to deal more then 95k dps, although in such gear it should be above 100 - 105k.
Perhaps the rotation is wrong (i spam 2 conflags and then bump 6 incinerates in a row with a DS up on start with pre-pots).
Or should I delay it till i have as much as possible procs?
I try not to hit 2 conflags in a row, in case I get an optimal proc window for CB and don't want to waste the backdraft charges. On a pull I can usually get at least two super charged CBs out (with pre-pot, DS, skull banner, weapon proc, trink etc.). I'd check Zums or Brusalks logs to see how they order the opening pull.
I wish our warriors were more consistent about when they drop banners.

Don't you dare ! Warning : I'm sloppy and easily distracted during pullsI'd check Zums or Brusalks logs to see how they order the opening pull.
I don't double conflag either for the reason you gave, if everything procs at the same time I don't want to waste stacks.
My guild's warriors hate me but we often have a decent rotation nowI wish our warriors were more consistent about when they drop banners.
PrePot/Immo before pull
Doomguard if using here
Incinerate to 2 stacks of backdraft (Rain of Fire on boss during this period once bosses are in one position for a while)
Chaos Bolt (Skull Banner is usually used while I'm casting this or before)
Immolate (This is usually fully buffed)
Incinerate to 1 burning ember (if required)
The rain of fire can help proc trinkets like LotC and ensure that your two Chaos Bolts are supercharged. Also RoF on one target is a DPS gain if the target is in the RoF for the whole duration. (In other words using RoF here is a DPS gain even on one target, and especially because you get the mana cost back while chaos bolting)

Try typing the players name then the dashboard for the fight you want analysed.
Name: Not // URL: http://www.worldoflogs.com/reports/r...?s=2964&e=3426
This. RoF makes this trinket proc in 2 sec when it could take 20 sec before.The rain of fire can help proc trinkets like LotC and ensure that your two Chaos Bolts are supercharged.
As for Timeline it can be very pernickety (ok google gave me this one) with URLs, I should work on it (and the missing classes) but I am missing time ^^
