About the Drain Souling on the adds before they go outside on heroic, surely this would be an insane DPS loss or do they blow up faster on heroic than they do on normal?
That last bit sounds a bit risky Kaamila, does that often go wrong?
And about draining the add when it moves outside and becomes untargetable, I assume this is to help kill the add quickly, as much as it is to get soulshards?
Heroic Elegon - anyone got any maths on at what number of stacks, if any, it becomes a single target dps increase on one add to spam SoCs on Elegon, rather than targetting the add itself?
Make sure you understand what I'm asking here. I'm aware that it's an effective raid DPS increase to do so, but as far as single target on one add is concerned?
Don't include Corruption damage in the calculations, as there's always time to do one SB: SoC between waves.
i was doing four with no prob
1st cast dot + mg
2nd SB SS+ mg
3rd sb ss Haunt mg
4th Darksoul sb ss haunt or double haunt if i have a shard
I was using Darksoul on CD and i always had it back before before the 4th spark was spawned during the 1st and 2nd spark phase
Is there any reason you don't want to play destruction for that fight? You can literally Havoc one Energy Charge and Chaos Bolt the other to one-shot the charges. Every single time. All you need is backdraft to land a quick Chaos Bolt on wave #4 and you can do 2 Charges all by yourself.
Why wouldn't you want to do that and have your entire raid have a way easier time on this boss?

Now THAT'S a Destro world problem, zum
I can give you a simple trick to maximize your dps.
At this moment I am elegon #3 affliction, because i'm using my Seed in the Phases at 85% nd 50%.
You will get much more stacks on the boss (more dmg overalland faster!) , because you are doing 2-3x more dmg than other classes on their adds an you support all dd's cause you are doing dmg to all adds. But you have to skill your 500% Aoe Range!!! (seed 34m range!)
I did round 20 million dpg at my last heroic elegon kill in these Phases to the Adds. Just hold 3 dot's on elegon up and cast seed on him (first soulbourn: seed, then normal seeds).
We did this way 1st time 8-9 Stacks and 2nd time 5-6 Stacks. (heroic, so nhc should be easyer to get more stacks)
Enrage should'nt be a Problem now.
Hope this could help you.

"Just hold up your 3 dots and use seed. (will exlode from dots!!)
Doing around 40k normal to all adds and 80k crits.
40x6 =240k + critluck ~ around 300k per seed.
You can cast like 4-5 seeds.
Thats 1m - 1,5m Damage in one Phase to 6 adds.
After they are down referesh your dot's and do the same again to all adds.
But just needs good timing and i did'nt tell you everything. Just try it for yourself.
Lineup: 2 Tanks 2 Heal 6 dds.
5 dds on 5 orbs. 2 tanks on one orb.
Warlock getting no specific add and just support everyone with seed and doing hell dmg on elegon with the 3 dots. "
Hope this helped.
