I decided to make my warlock my new main character a few days ago and was wondering if I'm on the right track. It's been kind of a rough transition for me because in the past I've played healers in every venue. Battlegrounds, dungeons, raids, ect... But, it was time to do something different.
Anyway, I'm left wondering if I'm doing okay damage for my gear level (ilvl 461 at the time). I did LFR vaults and ranged from 48-60k (as affliction) on boss fights (80k on Elegon) and overall I did 50k dps. I know there's a lot of room for improvement since this was my first time dps'ing but I'm left wondering how much of it was my gear? I followed the advice in the stickied affliction guide as best as I could.
Here is my character: http://us.battle.net/wow/en/characte...Bomzi/advanced
When I ran LFR I was at ilvl461, hit at 15% and 4200 haste. I got some gear upgrades from heroics so my gems, reforging, and enchants are off at the moment, but I will be back at my original hit and haste levels before I raid again. I'm actually going to raid 10 MV with my guild tonight.
Which leads me to ask, what is the best way to do the first boss as affliction? In LFR I tried to maintain a stack of dots on each dog but that didn't seem to work out too well. I'm probably missing some mechanic...
