The more exact question is, when do I refresh DoT's in regards to Dark Soul/trinket/enchant procs?
I ask this because I know my damage is below where it should be and I believe it has to do with how and when I re-apply my DoT's. I've been researching the spec for, well, the bulk of the expansion. The issue is that different sources provide different information. Noxxic, for instance, suggests manually refreshing all DoT's when a proc occurs. (They don't mention Pandemic which leads me to believe they want the DoT's updated regardless of time left.) Meanwhile a thread on icy-veins clearly states that I should update my DoT's manually AFTER they pass the Pandemic point. The same thread says I should then use SB-SS to reapply the DoT's right before the proc ends, regardless of time left on the DoT's. And elitist-jerks is oddly devoid of any guides for Affliction Locks so far this expansion.
As you can see the various sources are contradictory at best. Does anyone have a definitive answer to this?
