What are Destruction's haste points?
So the best thing to do is to cleave your normal single target rotation with enough time inbetween the copied spells, so it gets knocked back every time. Do NOT copy a Chaos Bolt, as it knocks back only once.
IF I was better off using the Megaera strat on Horridon and the spirit, that would imply that using fel flame to extend immolate in a single target scenario is always the best thing to do.
So, Over the weekend, i used simcraft to sim my character. I ended up with values of haste = 2.34 mastery =2.24 crit= 2.19. (Which is against what askmrrobot tells me to use). But basically these numbers are essentially so close as to be the same. So if they are that close to each other, should i be looking at the flat percentages? for instance, i could redo my stats, and lose 5% of crit in exchange for 15% of mastery, should i do that, or is that 5% of crit pretty much the equivilent of 15% mastery? I tried playing with my stats this weekend and ran an LFR and didnt see a lot of difference in my dps, so i may have answered my own question, but this just seems odd.
So for GoSup I should reforge like this?
Hit Cap -> Then reforge the most useless state (crit/hit that pushes me over) into haste or mastery (whichever isn't on the gear).
I may be wrong though, I haven't been in on that fight in like 3-4 weeks since I don't need any gear from it.

Is the influence of haste on RPPM trinkets so big that it can impact stats weights ?If you're going pure single target, you should go haste if you have RPPM trinkets, or haste/crit if you don't.
I'm sure you already did a simulation on Simcraft along the lines of "how much uptime I gain by having 5% more haste"
Anyway.. using havoc on the spirit in the final phase is worth it, as it saves you a lot of time. You save 75% of the otherwise necessary CoE-casts.
The spells definitely hit the spirit and do damage. Wasted damage, mind you, but it definitely generates more ember bits if you have the spirit dotted and under ROF.
Ideally, you summon your pet in the phase of Horridon and do some target switching to keep it away. The imp is the best bet.
If you're going pure single target, you should go haste if you have RPPM trinkets, or haste/crit if you don't.
Eh, I'm so confused..
I Simcrafted my Lock, plugged everything into Reforgelite and it's telling me to go Crit/Mastery.
Curious on how others handle shadowburn during execute phases to maximize damage (single target). I usually just spam them, unless I see that my CD's are going to be up then I try to conserve them for the CD. Any suggestions?? Some may have better approaches. Sometimes I feel like I use them too fast, but not sure.
I haven't tried any sims of 1 RPPM trinket though. I'll do that as soon as I can.

However, you should aim to cast as many shadowburns with your strongest procs up. This may mean you don't blow all your embers on your BotH proc, and instead wait for if BoTH+Wush is up, or even just the last 2 stacks fo Wush.
Last night i was in an LFR doing twin consorts and i noticed something really odd.
I was doing standard destro-ish things, and noticed that for some reason my embers were filling at an amazing rate. So i started chaos bolting, and got a good 10 of them off in a row before it decided to finally ran down. This fight has only 2 targets, and i wasnt even immolating both of them, just RoF. anyone else had this happen during this fight? was it one of the statue buffs?
No, i definately didnt fel flame, the only 'ghost' immolate i could think of, and im not really sure when in the fight it was, is if i immolated the first sister, and we were in the second phase, when she fades away and your on the second sister.
kinda difficult to find out why when all the info we get is "my embers were filling at an amazing rate".
and the immolate bug was fixed, sadly but as brusalk said, it could sound like a similar bug, or maybe you just had amazing luck with embers from a fully hasted (BL and meta gem) RoF.
