    I noticed it during Malkorok last night and again on dummies today. But after further inspection, it had more to do with my macro than it being nerfed. Sorry about the confusion.

    Also if you are SB-cleaving on mobs that die almost instantly like on Malkorok, the behaviour is often very weird.
    No damage on the dying add but the havoced target does get hit, embers lost etc... It has always been buggy to me :s

    I'm currently doing Flex and LFR content and I need to know which trinkets will be optimal for me, I have all of ToTs trinkets including the Shadow Pan 530 trinket, UVLS, Wooshalays, and the one that drops off Magera, I just got the Toxic trinket that drops off the dark Shaman LFR and I have the 535 Yu'lin trinket. Which of these trinkets should I have equipped? I have not had any Flex trinkets drop yet. My ilevel is 448. I just switched from Demo to Destro and could use the help. (My damage went up 40k!)

    Havoc won't copy spells to the Havoc'd target if you're targeting the Havoc'd target and using a mouseover/focus/tot/whatever macro to cast the other spell.

    Lazy coding. Wooo.

    Best 2 trinkets for Destro?

    Got Flex Bindings (548), HCTF Breath (549) and BB (561). I would asume Flex+BB, but not sure?

    If you think you can be good at getting bolts out under BB, then use Bindings + BB, if not then use Breath + Bindings.

    Silly Destruction Question

    Greetings, folks.

    I'm goofing around with an alt. that is destruction specced. This won't be taken it too seriously, but I do prefer to play him real fun like. At what point does crit diminishes too much? 30%?

    I moved your post to the Destruction sticky. Please use the search function or look at the stickies next time, and post spec related questions in these stickies. You're more likely to get an answer there, as that's the thread most people use for those purposes. It also helps keep our forums a fair bit more tidy.

    - Alarinth


    This is a needless move as it's not a theory craft question.

    I'm sure you're busy Brusalk, but that front page could seriously use an update. It still says things like to use fel flame instead of incinerates outside of backdraft. Many people, such as myself, frequently check that front page for updates. Instead the same questions are answered/asked over and over again in the thread that should be there... I know that is inevitable to some extent but nonetheless the update would be read and appreciated.


    Meanwhile I have the same results as nearly everyone else with simcraft at around 560 it lv, it likes haste just as much as the other stats, even in aoe simulations. In fact it really loves that haste point around 10124 with a passion.

    Wow I wish I had caught this sooner. Think of the BILLIONS of DAMAGE I've lost!!!!! Thanks for the insight though. Thorough as always.

    Agreed. I had come to distrust the macros themselves, thinking there was something wrong with them.

    I guess the lesson is to apply Havoc with a mouseover macro (and not target that mob).

    I'm pretty sure this is from Brusalk, but I use this:

    /stopcasting
    /cleartarget [@mouseover,harm,nodead]
    /cast [@mouseover,harm,nodead][] shadowburn
    /targetlasttarget [@mouseover,harm,nodead]

    And it allows me to Shadowburn things while my target is Havoced

    If it works for you it's Brusalks.

    If it doesn't it's my bad.

  14. #2414
    As far as dummy testing goes I am able to cast havoc on my target, have it targeted and mouseover shadowburn another target and have both hit

  15. #2415

    so this part is essentially a shadowburn mouseover macro?

    I have noticed this since 5.4, and I think it is happening ONLY when i use my Mouseover shadowburn macro, which is very annoying, not reported it or anything.

    Yes. The /stopcasting isn't mine, but it's fine in there.

    Basically the point is just to clear your target, and then restore your target after Shadowburning. (And only doing it if you're using the mouseover part)

  18. #2418
    If you are caught with affliction gear and transitioning to destro....and you just can't get your haste below say 10K'ish is it worth hitting the 10124 (?) breakpoint for immolate? If I pull some heavy handed moves I might be able to get it down to 9xxx haste but really following socket bonus and hit cap its not going below 12K till I can get different gear. (565'ish ilvl) That's gemmed mastery, forged out of haste where possible, etc...

  19. #2419
    Question: Is there a low haste cap for Destro? The current conventional wisdom seems to be mastery>crit>haste, but can you have too little haste? I just used ReforgeLite to go from Aff back to Destro (happy to make that change), and it got me all the way down to ~4k Haste, after I removed some haste gems too. And this is with HC Breath equipped.

    Should I stay at least at a certain haste level?

  20. #2420
    What's the preferred offset now for dest? Helm off Immerseus and 4x set elsewise? I'd imagine progression trinkets are obvious enough....amp and KTT. Everything else mast/hit or mast/crit for offpieces I'd imagine...
