I don't really get why everyone assume people use opener macros to avoid some kind of complexity? It's just a matter of quality of life. If I can get away with not pressing 8 buttons in a set order, but rather spam 1 button 8 times, why is that so bad? I'm really, really curious to hear a good reason now. We've already dismissed the RPPM because of the way the macro is built.

Hey, ive been wondering about my opener for a while and i could really use a helping hand. Basically i dont have UvoLS yet, it refuses to drop on Normal, and im not sure if the LFR one would be better than what i have (Normal Cha Ye's + Shado-Pan). Basically my opener is
Prepot + Cast shadowbolt before pull > CoE > Corruption > HoG > Imp swarm > Shadowbolt > HoG > Meta instantly > Dark Soul + Grim: Fel > 2-3x ToC > Doom before any procs fall off > Use MC procs as they proc > No MC procs, spam ToC until out of fury
At this time my Dark soul usually JUST ends and i begin my normal rotation. I have 519 ilvl and my burst is around 230k, my steady is around 120-130k. I just..I feel like my opener could be worked on, thats the thing. I just dont know what to do about it

Sigh I cannot for the life of me beat ~240k opening burst, self buffed on a dummy, even with UVLS proc
Guess those profession Int procs from Tailoring/Engineering etc and the legendary meta gem really help
Regarding all the questions about the opener I can suggest Sparkuggz Videoguide. Helped me out big time.
Personally I dont have any setbonusses atm, but I have the meta, as well as the Lei Shen Trinket and I often end up being fury starved(during the opener). What I do to overcome this problem is, that I do the opener as described with only one HoG and drop out of meta for 1-2 seconds as soon as I am close to 2 stacks of HoG again. Then I cast them both and swap back to Meta and continue dpsing until DS/proccs run out. This gives your imps/dots just enough time to stay in Meta for the rets of DS. Maybe this helps some people with the same problem.
Many questions and assumptions, let myself get out of the loop from lack of care and raiding for the past few months :3
I'm main spec destro right now until UVLS and possibly 4 set, but I want to get a stat priority that would work for demo and destro. I currently run 2haste>2crit>1int>mastery. Will something like this work for demo?
I'm waiting on getting UVLS as well and any freaking tier (lol I literally got my first piece last night and it was off piece legs :/) but I think 8097 Haste and stack mastery should work for both Demo and Destro if you don't want to reforge/regem for different fights.
Are you simming once, and looking at stat weights and taking them as gospel for all stat combinations?
The correct way to do it, if you're interested it, is to use reforge plots where it plots DPS versus sacrificing X stat and gaining Y of another stat.
A few questions regarding massive amounts of haste here..
I recently race changed to Troll, and that means I get the Berserking racial (+20% haste)... And, with the Legendary Meta that's another 30%, and with bloodlust we're talking an added 80% haste.
With the Shado Pan trinket comes 8800 haste, and with herbalism comes nearly 3k haste.
Currently I have engineering and Tailoring, and if I'm swapping out one of the two it'll damagewise be engineering. I'm just not clear on what effect Herbalism has, or why it's in the BiS profile. I realize 20 seconds of 3k added haste is a lot, but I cannot see it's value compared to the same % uptime of 1920 intellect. Is it not worth the hassle unless it pushes me above a doom breakpoint during bloodlust? that's the only logical explanation I can see yet.
