At wich ilvl is destro the go-to specc? i love playing affli but i heard that destro is far ahead dps wise.
For me destro was ahead on all fights until I got my meta gem, which was around 520 ilvl but also around the time I obtained my second RPPM trinket and a buttload of new items which didn't have crit. Now affliction is top on single target, but I still play destro on hc horridon and ji-kun.
Destro isn't usually ahead because of ilvl factors. Affliction really really wants the legendary meta gem, and without it, it's not as good as it should be. Also, several fights in ToT favor Destro due to fight mechanics, so while other specs may sim higher, Destro wins in actual raiding.
Destro is fairly forgiving, though, if you don't have all the gear. As I said before, Affliction really wants the meta; Demonology really wants UVLS. If you don't have either, chances are Destro will be your best choice.
In general though, given equal skill the specs are fairly equal. Just keep in mind fight-specific mechanics and how they affect your choice.
I literally cannot get within ~20 rating of my hit cap... I can go 40 over or 40 under... which is better? I'm sitting at .15% under cap right now.
Also, is it worse to go haste heavy on destro cleave to not have to spend 1k every 4 fights or is it worse to go mastery heavy for afflic?

Should I replace my lfr tier 15 shoulders (502 item level) with the ones from the shado pan assault (522 Item level)?
If I replace them, I will lose the first set bonus. Is it worth it?
What should I do?
.15% is absolutely non relevant, go either way.
It's not okay to not be hitcapped.
Let me tell you the tale of Combustion...
Have you EVER seen more imps?
Overheard in the priest forums... "Every class should be about trade-offs, not being top 3 DPS in all scenarios, being able to DPS while doing backflips and twirling about and having the best utility the game and being your own tank and healer too."
So, for H Primordius... RoF the adds and chaos bolt spam or FnB + RoF the adds?
when doing it heroic you have to be way more careful with killing adds close to the boss obviously.
I put up FnB-Immo on adds + RoF as my main source of add damage. You're generally swimming in embers anyway so FnB-Immo'ing doesn't really cost you anything. If I have time to fill I'll conflag. The one thing I'm sure to do is Havoc 3 shadowburns onto the big add to help kill or.
Been working on my warlock and finally got him to 90.
I'm getting the "rotation" down fairly well but I hear differing opinions on whether to Rain of Fire on single target or not.
Can anyone comment?
