    Hi guys,

    Been having some trouble ever since this UVLS nerf...ive been playing affliction ever since TBC and i honestly love it, not much has changed but it seems with these new changes i am constantly in the middle of DPS 10-11th or worse depeneding on the fights. Im in a progression guild were currently stuck 13/14 N.


    yesterday i switched to the 9780~ haste cap after looking through countless posts of dps gains in haste cap>mast>haste>crit. I have Tforged N UVLS and recently dropped it for breath and KTT.

    I open with the reg opening pot,DS, Haunt, SB+SS, then refresh with trinket procs, then fill with MG. First im noticing with the new corruption changes im running short on shards and find myself casting drain soul alot more then i use to....Also fights with numerous adds (more than 4) i find myself SOCing also more with very little dps gain...

    Anyone have any input on shard management/playstyle now with the new changes as without UVLS im finding myself lost and low on the meters

    Hi !

    I also play Afliction warlock and i am currently at 549 ilvl (i think i was 547 during the raid), here are the logs from our last down of Thok : http://www.worldoflogs.com/reports/g...=13072&e=13420

    I will focus on Thok, as I don't have much time, I am far from being perfect but here is what i see :

    I don't see any damage on the jailer, i think it's pretty easy to inhale the dots on Thok and put them on the jailer, and then switching back to Thok, only costs 2 gcds. At least once or twice per jailer depending on your dps/strategy.

    Our kill is 05:48, yours is 07:13, but i used 3 Dark Soul : Misery (2 min cooldown) and 5 Synapse Springs (1min cooldown) while Diamóndback only used 2 Dark Soul : Misery and 3 Synapse Springs

    I don't see any use of fel flame, when the boss reaches full energy, he should stop channeling Malefic Grasp and cast a Fel Flame, so he does not lose to much DPS and he does not get interupted and is able to cast Malefic Grasp again sooner.

    I will try to have a look at other bosses tomorow.

    - - - Updated - - -

    So I checked his armory, he should go for the next haste cap, which is 13773 IIRC.

    I checked some fights and his DoT uptimes seem correct except sometimes for UA, he should have 90% at least.

    I think he is missing the principle of the Aff spec, which is to have a high powerful DoTs uptime. Is he using something to keep track of his procs/strenght of his dots ? (like AffDots) If not, he should.

    Hi, same as above :

    You shoud aim to have at least 90% uptime on your dots. Only 72% UA uptime on Siegecrafter is quite low.

    Do you have somthing to keep the strength of your procs / dots ? I use Affdots and I keep my Haunts for strong dots applied during meta/trinket procs. Of course, if they are mobs dying, you can burn your shards quickly as you can get back to 4 when a mob dies. Also never sit at 4 shards, you don't want to waist a nightfall proc.

    Next week we are starting heroics so any tips and feedback are much appreciated.

    Edit: In regard of gear he also has old t15 and Frenzied Crystal of Rage.
    He should get rid of UVLS, not worth it anymore, at least as affliction.

    Also his DoT uptime is a bit low, probably because of Garrosh's transitions, he should reDoT just before the transitions.

    For example on Thok i had a 547 ilvl and my average Unstable Affliction was ticking for 40k, on Garrosh his average Agony hits for 34k, so i guess he isn't using his procs to empower his dots, not enough at least.

    Hey guys, I posted to this thread before a tier or 2 ago and it really helped, but with all the changes to warlocks atm i feel as if i've fallen behind.

    i've been told by multiple sources that Dk's are "mid-pack" atm, but for some reason the dk in my guild constantly out damages me and im not sure that should be the case, due to warlocks parsing higher on 10m SoO Heroic fights according to raidbots.

    anyway, here are some logs of half a clear with myself as both affliction and destro, any pointers/tips would be appreciated.

    Hi I'm a Warlock in need of help

    I returned to raiding in July after a two year break, I was used to raiding semi-hardcore, always have played a hunter. I returned to my old guild and they took me back to raiding, in two years they have improved a lot, while I am rusty... like really really rusty. I rerolled Warlock because that was what they needed, I've nearly caught up to their gear but my dps is really lacking and I can't quite figure out what I'm doing wrong. I've researched quite a bit on how to play, I'm used to those things, but I can't get it quite right. Which means I have to sit out on a lot of the fights ofcourse.

    I've been playing affliction since I got the meta which was when 5.4 hit.
    My rotation(just following the guides I guess):
    Keep dots up, soulburn-soulswaprefresh dots with powerful buffs like trinkets(I use affdots to track it) use haunt when my dots are strong or if I'm at 3 shards. Malefic grasp filler, drain soul below 20%, fel flame when moving. I save dark souls to combine with trinkets.

    Not sure if I forget anything, but I really hope you can help.

    I'm not in on many fights, today I've been in on immerseus and iron juggernaut

    Hi guys,

    Struggling with Aff. Trying to play the spec as it should be played, but still surprised just how bad my numbers are. I use Affdots and WeakAuras for tracking buffs and such.

    Last night's logs: http://www.worldoflogs.com/reports/rt-rdq4lbitjuwh0t5e/
    Armory: http://us.battle.net/wow/en/characte...kigga/advanced
    Note about the armory, I just got the belt and legs last night, haven't done anything with them actually on and I know I'm missing the leg enchant on them.

    Of special note to me are the Juggernaut and Thok kills. I know I played badly on Juggernaut but I thought I had done better on Thok than the numbers came out to.

    Quick analysis for single target:

    - Looks like you're using GoSac single target. Switch to GoSup and use a pet.
    - Looks like you're using Rain of Fire single target. We essentially don't do that anymore after the RoF nerf.
    - Low usage of Dark Soul (I'm assuming you had AD, which you're currently selecting on your armory). Seems like you're trying to game it too much? Try just using it on CD for a while.

    Hey guys.
    I'd like some advice/help aswell if anyone got the time to take a look at my logs/armory.

    Recently i respecced destruction as my secondary specialization (I'm switching between affliction and destruction on various fights just to check it out)
    Anyways, the last couple o' days i decided to regem/reforge in to pretty much full mastery after reading a few forum posts. Mainly Brusalks destruction guide though.

    Anyways, i can't figure out if it's as good as it could be or if i should regem/reforge to something else.
    http://eu.battle.net/wow/en/characte...onday/advanced

    Other than that.
    At my current ilvl (555) i've been thinking my DPS is abit low.
    I mean, i should be pulling more, atleast i think i should.
    Could you guys confirm or refute this?
    The only thing i could imagine i'd be doing wrong, like really wrong, is not having a high enough uptime on my Immolate.

    I really hope you guys can answer my questions, or well confirm or refute my concerns about my DPS.
    And also tell me what should be done about the mastery build or not.

    Thanks.

    I was testing around on target dummies for a long while today and GoSac and GoSup were literally even. Less than 1k over 50m dmg done over the course of several tests.

    Hey all, looking for a little help here, my DPS seems to be low and not sure what's causing it. I have been close to the top of my guilds meters untill the last 2 patches and I am not sure what I'm doing wrong, I would really like to stay Aff as it's my preferd spec but maybe with my gear I should go back to Demo or Destro?
    Any help is appreciated, I finally figured out how to get WoL to work and was hoping to find some pointers. Anyway, here are a couple of fights out of LFR, that may skewer the results but hoping for anything, really.

    Hey, just wondering... which 2 trinkets should i be using as affliction? Bindings /Toxic totem / UVLS
    Also, which two trinkets should i be using for destruction? Bindings/ Toxic totem/ Frenzied crystal/ UVLS

    For Destruction i think its Bindings and toxic totem...
    As for Affliction I dont know what to use.. It seems UVLS+ bindings to be the best if hero is used on pull, but i could be wrong.

    (557Ilv - Bindings are Heroic, Uvls is Normal, Toxic totem is Flex, Crystal is Normal)

    Hello all,

    I've got a few questions regarding simcraft and stat scaling.
    Im curious at what point i should focus to gem for intellect more than secondary stats, as out of what my scale factor show me?.
    Also here is my armory link, if anyone have something to admit / any change on my reforge or gem setup - please let me know

    Here is link to the simcraft scaling picture: imageshack.us/photo/my-images/844/pbso.jpg/
    Here is link to my armory: eu.battle.net/wow/en/character/alakir/Mitchì/advanced

    PS! This is mainly meant for Affliction spec.
    (my first post on this forum by the way )

    Best regards Mitchì

    Can you have a look over our lock please? Some locks are worse geared than him but doing better dps. As far as we can see not much is too wrong upfront. Am hoping that some of you might be able to find what is going wrong. We're heading into HC and our dps is a bit of squeeze.

    His armory: http://eu.battle.net/wow/en/characte...unior/advanced

    Some logs:

    4. Fallen Protectors: http://www.worldoflogs.com/reports/r...?s=6556&e=6837

    Any input would be great as we can't find exactly what it IS holding him back. Kinda frustrating! TY

    I've been really struggling this tier. Last tier I was top 5 in our guild on most fights and I regularly ranked. Of course that was with demonology. The tier before that, I played mostly affliction and I would rank regularly there, too. Right now, I'm way behind and I can't seem to figure out why. I've hit the haste cap at 9.7k and poured everything else into mastery. I just barely got my second piece of tier, so my logs don't reflect that change yet. I use weak auras and affdots to track my procs so I can put strong buffs up. I know I could improve a bit on my haunt usage, but I'm really at a loss of where to improve.

    Please help my warlock boost her dps.

    Please ignore, did not realise there was a specific sticky for this.

    Gems are a mess. Dot uptime is pretty terrible, might want to find out what she uses to track things like dots/trinkets/procs ect. If she is playing affliction for most things point her to this thread and have her read through it: http://www.mmo-champion.com/threads/...pecific-Guides
