I'd just like to thank you for all the hard work you have done on the destro guide, as a old school destro player, it's nice to see dedicated people making guides.
I have been looking through the most of the thread, but can't seem to find a guide to which setup is best as destro, for each boss encounter in ToT. Could you share with us, your own setup of either haste/gosup or mastery/gosac for the ToT boss encounters? Not sure if it's different from normal to hc, but for us mortals, the setup guide for normal encounters would be highly appreciated
Other locks then Brusalk, (like you zumzum) are of course also welcome to share their experiences of reforge-setup pr encounter

yea rain of fire is huge, i was struggling a bit on iron qon. was the first fight that i was getting beat by other player in my group with lower ilvl who i normally always beat. starting keeping up rof a lot more often and saw a big increase in dps
I wish the would make rain of fire scale with haste to add more ticks instead of just lowering the "channel" time.
Pretty annoying to keep it up under bloodlust/Berserking/Valor trinket procc.
Even with the buffed Rain of fire, it still only adds 1% dps roughly singletarget from my own tests and sims, and a lot of the time the extra attention keeping is not worth it.

agreed ROF does generate a nice amount of embers on single target fights, more embers = more CB and SB spam. i really like where destro is going and is right now.
Does anyone know the haste breakpoints for Immolate/RoF?
There is not any haste breakpoint for RoF.
For Immolate 2021/10124 : https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/...r=false&gid=13
my dps went up almost 7k from previous version
I was looking this up earlier and was a bit confused. Current sims show us using GoSup in BiS gear and gemming for intellect but the scale factors shows 2x mastery > 1x intellect. If that is the case (coupled with the increase regen from RoF this tier) I am wondering if it really would be better to go back to something much closer to the 5.1 model of GoSac w/ Mastery stacking while gemming for mastery as much as possible. I don't know how to use simcraft to save my life but would be very curious to see if that would be superior to what simcraft is using now.
Going by the knowledge that haste = crit > mastery, does it account for the below 1 sec incinerates with backdraft and heroism? Isn't it a dps loss to have 0.7 sec Incinerate casts? I went from 15% to 10% haste and gained some mastery instead, and now they are just a bit below 1 second which seems to be optimal for me. However, heroism is up for just 40 seconds during a fight, is it really a dps gain to reforge out of haste just to have 1 sec incinerates?
edit: it also baffles me why Simcraft tells me that going below 1 sec incinerates would be a DPS increase

Is it optimal to reforge out of haste so that you never go below 1sec incinerates?
Is it optimal that when you have enough haste to go below 1sec incinerates, to just use chaos bolts with 3 or more backdraft stacks as to not have "wasted stats"
I can't be of much use to anyone in terms of complicated theorycrafting until next week.
However, my gut feeling is that if you get to the point you have sub 1sec Incinerates in any circumstance, you should reforge some of that haste to crit.
Question regarding multi-target fights like Council - How many targets do you keep Immolate up on? All 4 or just the one that you're nuking down, whilst keeping RoF rolling on the other ones if they're close enough?
