Should you use molten core procs out side of meta if you have trinket procs up and and dont have enough demonic fury to spend the duration in meta?
So after some dummy testing (obviously not the end all solution) seems to me 30% less fury cost is going to yield better dmg. I know you run imp swarm, but I could never get as much imp dps that way as just not glyphing it. I know that if you use it on pull you can stay in meta slightly longer, but wonder if the overall dps loss is worth it? I was just thinking if you can stay in meta for say 3 or 4 more casts, that might be enough to outweigh 10% dmg, depending on mc procs and trinket timings and such. Anyone have any ideas?
Is it true that you and shinafae use different openers?
In WoL you can view anything that happens with a timestamp with expression editor. So to make a comparison between two players' opener, build a query for all casts they do and all buffs gained.
In WL, it's just a matter of going to events view and choosing the character and buffs etc. also has timestamps.
You can't tell the exact reforging and gear they use, but you can tell what trinkets they have and when they proc and fade. I would assume at this point, they're not reforging/regemming on a fight to fight basis, so what you see in armory probably isn't too far off. If you really wanna sleuth it out, see how long a shadow bolt cast is and do a little math to find how much haste they have.

I would also imagine the only real difference between our openers is the fact that I am using Drain Life
I've been running a couple of sims with the 4/4 upgrades and I'm seeing GoSup pull ahead by quite a margin (around 3.5-4%) when you add movement and adds. Same result with multiple targets. Weights Haste>Mastery>Crit. Perhaps, with yet higher levels of haste, the fury and burst gains from GoServ are offset by the increased constant damage from the wrathguard?
Zinnin - why do you not wait for your meta gem proc to pop your imps?
taken from your opener link:
[21:33:12.983] Zinnin casts Imp Swarm on Malkorok
[21:33:13.092] Zinnin gains Tempus Repit from Zinnin
or do you use the same opener regardless of procs?
90% of the time it should have procced by the time that I cast it, however that proc will give me maybe 1 more imp per fight so if it isn't up it isn't a huge deal. The damage of having imps out for most of BB makes up for most of that.
I use an opener macro and just spam it on the pull.
