I'm curious to know what kind of dps other warlocks are seeing in both 5man heroics as well as raiding dummy tests. Currently I play as demonology and I hit about 50k+ dps on average on 5man bosses, going as high as 70k+ on some fights that are rather short, needless to say. But the reason I'm asking is because my raiding dummy dps is in my opinion low - only around 36-37k, while I've heard about some classes doing like 10k more on a dummy than me. I have also played Affliction and I pulled slightly lower numbers with it and I also found it boring to play so I'm rolling with Demonology now, haven't tried Destruction at 90 yet, played with it at 85 though in the pre-patch.
Now I'm very new to the warlock class, I've mostly played warrior and mage before, so I guess I have something to learn still though I consider myself a pretty good lock considering I'm topping the meters in dungeons while paying attention to the actual encounters, something that many seem to fail at. Here's a link to my armory: http://eu.battle.net/wow/en/characte.../Oneman/simple if someone has any ideas about reforging more optimally and so on. My rotation on fights, starting at 200 demonic fury, goes pretty much like this: CoE if needed, HoG, Corruption, Metamorphosis + Doom, back to normal caster form, spam shadowbolt while using molten core procs and keeping dots up. When I'm at around 700-800 demonic fury I go into Metamorphosis while popping Dark Soul and my on-use trinket and spam Touch of Chaos and using molten core procs. I use Doomguard towards the end of the fight to get the most out of it, while popping it early enough so it has full duration for the fight.
I think that's pretty much how my playing goes, I don't have any idea if my way of playing is the "right" way, with "right" being the most optimal, because I don't usually like asking people how to play or reading guides because it's more fun to learn to play by yourself and figure out stuff. Again though, if anyone has any tips for my reforging and rotation I'd gladly hear about them. I rolled warlock for my guild and I don't want to lag behind in raids dps wise.
Anyway as I said before let everyone hear what kind of dps you are pulling atm and share your tips here.
