Is it because of weird hitboxes or is Rain of Fire bugged ?
I've aggroed the Council yesterday while showing RoF radius to someone although I was sooo far away (with MF though). And I can hit Mar'li even though she isn't in the reticule.
If you send in a melee minion you'll notice the hitbox on Magera is huuuuge!
Megeara is a good example. Horridon can get RoF'd almost by the door if you have him near-ish to the door you're on.
How do you people use the Lei Shen trinket as Destruction? I notice Brusalk runs with it, and I just got mine today, but it procs very erratically, and most of the time at complete and utter crap times. Simcraft does show it as a 2.5k dps upgrade over a 2/2 normal Sha trinket though.
Are there any tricks you can pull with the Lei Shen trinket? Should I drop everything I'm doing and use a /stopcasting /cast Chaos Bolt macro the moment it procs? As Affliction it's really clear, SB:SS when it procs and you're done.
Also, the stat weights in simcraft switch so much it's unbelievable. I've gone from crit>haste>mastery to crit>mastery>>haste to haste>>mastery>crit within gaining one ilvl and switching some reforges.
And one more thing, Soul Leech at Lei Shen = insane.

The only thing I do is make sure I get one Immo off on a target that'll last for it's duration.

I also tried using Fel Flame to refresh stats on Immo instead of hard-casting Immo and it was a wash there. Both gave pretty much identical DPS.
Sup guys !
We killed tortos tonight, and I saw a strange bug when focusing the spinning turtles : when I chaos bolted them, it would sometimes not hit them, but instead just spin around it forever... Anyone encountered this bug aswell ?
i would like like to thank you for helping get a better grip on my Lock my guild kept trying to have my play afficination and i never really liked that spec, so i was tring demon for abit and then i found you guild and now i'm fighting for top dps in my guild as before i was mid or fighting with the tanks for lowest dps ( hint i was not very go at affication lol) so thank you for this guild. there is once question i have what are the stat weights for a destro lock because i use reforgelite and would like to get that right so i dont spend tons of gold reforging
Hey thanks again for those that contribute to this thread (Brusalk, Zum,...). Made a nice rank 18th on Iron Qon tonight
5.1 16/16 HC 5.2 12/12
i am considering to play Destro on Tortos, Horidon and possibly Megaera.
Reading the guide, i conclude that Gosac is the best option.
In such case, am I right to assume my reforge priority must be Mastery >> Haste >> Crit?
GoSup is also not bad on horridon as you can send you pet on horridon all the time and it will do 50% bonus dmg/100%/150% etc after each gate all the time!
So sorry that Im still not sure with this GCD problem with backdraft and bloodlust... are we sure that Simcraft is using the GCD after a hardcast? or does it only applies this when using instant casts? This is more a question for the developers of the tool I guess but maybe someone here knows this too.
So if doesn't applies a GCD after a hardcast it would just calculate a incinerate all 0.7 sec and so on during bloodlust making haste the best for sure!

Somehow gosup with observer on the boss gave me better results on tortos than earlier wipes when i was running gosac (i even reforged). Need to check the logs properly, but my pet was doing ~15% of my dmg. I must say that even tho I got ranked with 168k I wasnt very good at havoc sniping the bats (they didnt last for too long). Maybe then gosac would triumph.
Of course it applies a GCD.
I recently ran my Warlock through SimC, and it tells me that GoServ Succubus is a .5k DPS increase over GoSup observer.
Can this be right?
Doesn't sound too far-fetched - they're within 100 dps of each other in full T15H gear. Individual differences in gear might easily sway things in GoServ's favor, like if you have an ICD trinket that happens to sync up with the GoServ cooldown.
I had a nice post written and ready to go about where I am on the haste thing, but it seems to have been eated. Essentially, don't worry about haste this tier unless you're sitting at 29% unbuffed (12,331 rating). At that point (or maybe a bit sooner, still working that out), you're reintroducing RoF into your single target rotation again. The additional cast time reduction of CB is offset by the "wait" periods of waiting for the GCD of Incin if you haste past 1 sec casts, and you start wasting lust at that point. There's a lot of "it depends," "but," and "oh wait, if you do THAT" involved with this, some of it I'm still trying to wrap my head around, but that seems to be the essential. If you're at that much haste right now, you're probably doing so at the expense of crit and mastery, and probably have much higher stat weights for those. With the Volatile trinket, my recommendation is to get rid of it as soon as you can upgrade out of it. It's too much haste in 10 second intervals. There's no real good level to sit at where the trinket is better than any other.
