So I've been playing a lock for many years now and have always played affliction. Now when I start a fight I usually burst up 115-120k dps. Over the course of the fight however, i usually slow down to about 65-70k at the end. My question is, should I be that much lower by the end? I'm wondering if I'm doing something wrong or have stats messed up. I start raids friday and want to be the best I can right off that bat. Thanks for any input.
Here's my armory: us.battle.net/wow/en/character/mugthol/Dorud%C3%A8/advanced
Sounds about right for your gear. The beginning of a fight is where everything procs, with every cooldown up, so your DPS usually go down until 20%, then go slightly up during execute phase. Just make sure you're lining up DS:Misery with procs (if you know it's coming) or use on cd otherwise, and save shards for during misery and/or when procs stack.
