I cannot have put it better, zinnin.
Apparently Immolation Aura was nerfed 15-16% from the start of 5.4. Not sure when that happened because there is no note for it, didn't notice it until I started updating my spreadsheet and the numbers were off.
I was kinda suspecting that since mannoroth fury isn't as strong as it sounds

Void ray's cost went up 100% along with fel flame's cost but I never noticed its damage....probably because its awkward to use at best when it did let you maintain a DF income from multiple corruptions. Now its just a fast way to flush DF for aoe damage that is pathetic in terms of what ele/warrior/etc get. TLDR haven't used it much in 5.4 as its cons stack rapidly.
Anyone got a Simc list that compares demo, affli and destro in BiS gear? can't seem to find it anywhere...
CPU: I5 2500K @4.5ghz (1.285v), CPU cooler: Corsair H100 push/pull GPU: MSI R7970 Lightning @1200Mhz, Case: Corsair 650D, Ram: 16GB Corsair vengeance, Mobo: Asrock Z77 Extreme4, PSU: Corsair TX650M, SSD: Samsung 830 128GB, HDD: WD Caviar Black 1TB SPU: Xonar Essence STX
I need some help.
For some reason I feel like my DPS took a step back after some upgrades I obtained. I opt to go for the 13K break point for the shadow flame tick and I'm certain I didn't sacrifice too much mastery. Unbuffed, I'm sitting on 12178 mastery and 13794 haste. I don't have logs at the moment, but I definitely feel a little off. Maybe I sacrifice too much primary stat to obtain the extra tick?
Next Shadowflame tick is at 14873 haste. Something we should probably only consider in close to full heroic BiS.
Messed with 15K haste for the shadowflame tick BP and it definitely helps DF generation. Plus you get shadowbolt casts off between hazards much easier. Though now you are generating DF faster than you typically have trinket procs to spend it on or enough MC charges. This is at 572ilvl. Sims say its a gain (vs 8100 haste > mast > crit > haste) where my mast was around 16K and crit around 9K. To hit that point I had to gem haste vs mastery which is 9x orange, 4x yellow, 3x green.
15k shadowfury breakpoint is ~14k dps increase over that 8100 breakpoint for me in single in simc. Tried both in our Paragon HC progress and 15k definitely felt much better and did more damage with that. And in that fight you swim in fury and gain more molten core procs you can spend.
Therefore you'll need 13772 haste in your character screen WITHOUT the trinket equipped for that to be true.
Is Demo still viable at 560ilvl gear for heroics progression?
There are not very many people playing it, as evidenced by my world 9 H Malorok kill. I like it on Malkorok for the increased mobility and splash damage on the adds.
