Any reason to precast shadow bolt over soulfire on the pull?
Hey guys! first of all thank you so much for this thread and all the great information. Secondly, I just got a helm to put my legendary meta into tonight and I have been wondering, even WITHOUT UVLS, with my current gear should I favor hates over the other stats or keep at my current build. I understand that when you have UVLS the reason you go for haste and GoEA is because you want to shit your damage to imps instead of doom. I haven't run any sims with my meta in yet to check reforge plots or anything, that will have to wait until Thursday.

You're in an awkward position... You have the Crit Trinket, without UVLS. I think you should go to 8097 Haste and then stack Crit. That combination should give you a decent uptime on both trinkets and the Meta Gem. Get UVLS (even the LFR one) asap though, it will do wonders for your gear and allow you to get away from stacking Crit and focus on Haste>Mastery>Crit.
Anyone care to speak in some detail as to your thoughts on stacking heavy haste over mastery, assuming you have the legendary meta and UVLS? I know a lot of people go just full on haste even past 8097 while others hit 8097 and stack mastery. I'm just curious and would like some kind of in depth explanation of one over the other.
All of this is assuming you have UVLS and the legendary meta.
Thank you Teye for the quick response and advice =D. So after the 8097 haste, then crit, but is haste still > mastery or after the break point should I not get any more haste until I have UVLS? Also, once I have UVLS which of my 2 trinkets should I use with it? from what I've been reading it looks like BotH.
No matter which route you choose the largest effect on your dps will be human error not whether your reforges are completely optimal.
Eg. Lets say your doing council and you're full crit reforged but during the fight you sweave every single HoG, everytime UVLS procs you get doom up on all 4 bosses, you dont waste gcds you never sit on 2 hog charges etc.. in essence you play perfectly VS if you are optimally reforged and when UVLS procs you miss the full crit doom on 1 boss your dps will be higher with the crit reforge.
Moral of the story.. make sure you master the class on EVERY FIGHT so that you make 0 errors and then sim your character and change the profile to meet the fights that you want to be doing the MOST dps on.. then you can get your optimal reforge and get you +1k dps lol
personally for me atm i am sitting at 4714 haste => matery => crit untill i get my 4pc at which i'll have enough haste to get to the 2nd plateu at which it becomes this
8097 haste > Mastery > crit. Two ticks of doom during lust is the butter zone where fury gen is good the imps are good and you can start to focus on other stats.

The "theory" behind full haste for demo is that with UVLS, legendary meta, and a second RPPM trinket more haste is functionally more procs. 8097 then mastery or full haste both are viable. Its mostly a playstyle thing. The functional upside is full haste also lets you swap between demo and affliction with the same setup.
If I'm trying to bomb the most possible in 5 sec window of heroic lei shen ball lightning I'll go 8097 then mastery. I'd also wager there is some further mastery preference if you tend to run grim of svc while haste favors gosac more but that's kind of just a gut feeling.
I have to apologize in advanced for this probably extremely nooby question.... I just got UVLS from LFR, and i've been reading through the forums about hitting the 8097 haste cap. I'm currently 508 ilvl, and have been attempting to figure out how you guys are hitting the 8097 haste cap. In my current gear i'm coming no-where even close to that. Is it an item level thing? That being said, From what I've gleamed from these forums, if I can't hit 8097, I should go for the 3036 haste > Mastery > Crit?

fml and feel free to hate on me for dropping a question I could answer myself, but I'm wondering if you people who stuck to demo in the beginning of this patch can tell how competitive it was before higher gear levels without lei shen trinket etc. I'm sitting at 519 item level with no set bonuses and even some spirit pieces, where I'm struggling to match my destro numbers as affliction. being really tired of destro I'm considering going demo this week. do you think it will be even weaker than affli or actually able to compete with destro? I'm able to confidently play all specs on an equal level so make your conclusion based on my gear alone armory: http://eu.battle.net/wow/en/characte...nkudo/advanced
thanks. was thinking the nerfs to demo at the beginning of the patch made the spec weak until you get UVLS. I'll give it a try then.
