heres my armory link http://us.battle.net/wow/en/characte...piteran/simple
also i do have my 4 piece with my chest but i dont have the toxic totem trink.
You should definetly wear the 4 set bonus. It's extremely strong for destro. I'm not sure (someone else here will know this) if it is still worth it if you only have the Raid Finder set chest, but if you have at least the Flex version it's definetly superior to your warforged one.
Apart from that I can't see anything that would speak against playing destro with your gear. Of course the toxic totem will take some stress out of an encounter, compared with the black blood - but it isn't an actual upgrade, it's just easier to play.
I just tested your char in simulationcraft and with your curent gear, you should outperform your affli specc with your destro specc by about 8-9% in a longer single target fight. Using the set chest should even increase this advantage.
I'd considder myself quite a decent warlock, I raided in the top 100 during ToT and got rank ones as all 3 specs etc. But I quit playing after we killed Ra'den for the first time and drama happened and my guild broke appart. Obviously I'm a bit behind the curve now 10 months later, quite some things seem to have changed. And now I'm going to start raiding again.
Considdering I'm almost entirely unexperienced with SoO on HC I'm planning to use KJC a lot during this reset. I'd rather do tactics right and not get hit by shit then maxing my dps entirely straight away. My gear is very shit compared to the people I'll be raiding with anyway. My question is how to handle DS with KJC and Bindings trinket. I've nearly only used AD when I've been playing cassually. Which allows me to always line up DS with bindings proc without loosing uptime thoughtout the fight.
But with KJC and Bindings sometimes not wanting to proc for a while after comming of the cd I'd potentially loose uptime on DS during the fight. Is it still correct to line them up?
I am also planning to basicly play destro for everything except protectors, eventhough I preffer affl/demo from a playstyle pov over destro. This is mainly because of my gear (http://eu.battle.net/wow/en/characte...3%ADk/advanced), them trinkets... I know wush is good for affl but it feels like my trinkets are just too crappy compared to the rest of my gear to get good numbers with affl. What do you guys think?
I think you're undervaluing KJC by quite a bit.
Common misconception is that it is a "noob talent", however Destruction's version of Dark Soul really isn't all that great (compared to what Afflic/Demo get out of theirs).
Destruction also leans heavily on incinerate both for damage and ember generation, and following the Fel Flame nerf early on, you'll go oom often on fights with moderate to heavy movement. You can plan around this in some occasions, but there are quite a few fights where KJC is considered mandatory. Basically don't worry about using KJC, it's actually super strong for destruction.
Which one of these 2 is better than the 3rd for Destruction?
Black Blood of Y'Saarj (561)
Kardris' Toxic Totem (548)
Purified Bindings of Immerseus (548)
I've got 560 item level and pretty low mastery (around 100%).
Black Blood along with Bindings > Kardris Totem.
But be aware that Black Blood needs more attention than the Totem.
Good Trinket list by Sparkuggz btw: http://sparkuggz.com/5-4-destruction-guide/ (scroll down)
EDIT: Brusalk was faster. Sorry for double info.

Most important thing in my opinion is the tactics. We played our 10men tactics where possible, as our guild was "leading" this raid. If you switch guild they will most likely do somethings different and that will be the biggest difference for you and your playstile imho.
I've got a very dumb questions but i can't find the answer by myself.
Regarding Chaos Bolt,
Are only the procs (intel/mastery/crit) i had at the start of the cast counting for the damage ?
If i loose a proc buff when casting or while the choas bolt is travelling does it affect the damage ?
If instead i gain a proc buff when casting or while the chaos bolt is travelling do i get more damage ?
Of course all those questions are because i wanna be a lot more accurate about when i should land a chaos bolt regarding my CD/procs
Thank in advance !
Ok great. Thx very much for the info.
All what i was needing.
You're all so great
Hey all. I was hoping someone could take a look at this http://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/...et=43&fight=18 Logs for our best heroic garrosh attempt. I'm not the most confident in my destro playing and usually second guessing my self on stats and what i should stick with for this fight. But i defiantly know i should be doing more with my gear. I'm just not sure where i'm fucking up. During the fight I don't feel like i'm doing anything wrong but the numbers don't lie. Any help would be great. We're soooooo damn close to killing him and I want to feel like I did my part.
ETA: I'm camii, not madler btw. I mean , if i was doing what he was doing i wouldn't feel as bad lol .
