Im abit confused. guide says like this
For the time being:
Grim of Sac: Mastery > Haste == Crit
Grim of Serv/Sup: Haste==Crit > Mastery
but then below it says:
Grimoire/Pet DPS Priority
Sup/Observer 172596 Mastery == Haste > Critso if Observer with Sup is so much superior why does the top say haste=critt>mastery when everything else shows to be mastery==>haste?Target Cleave:
Grimoire/Pet DPS Priority
Sup/Observer 222427 Mastery == Haste > Crit
also curious about this:
Im not quite sure i get this. should i put a pure int if the bonus isnt 100+ and i dont need the hit?As for gemming, a good rule of thumb is to go Int in all sockets. If the socket bonus provides more than 100 Intellect (or 200+ of a secondary stat), then you should match socket colors. If the socket bonus for any gear with a blue or yellow gem in it is worth gemming over pure Int, then you should go Int/Hit or Int/Expertise, whichever is cheaper to get, for Blue, and Int/Best secondary stat in yellow.
beacuse lets say its a yellow socket with 60 bonus. putting a pure int gives me a flat 160 int while a dual stat gives me 80int+bonus of 60=140 and then 160+ of a secondary of my desire.
im really confused haha
Best is to read Evralias tutorial on Sim C and simming your toon yourself. You can find it in the index sticky.
Keep in mind what type of fight you are preparing for and where most of your damage will come from (ember generators or ember consumers).
As for gemming your intuition is correct. Gems are incredibly straight-forward if you know the rough value of stats. You basically want to know, when given the choice between matching a socket for a bonus and going straight int:
Is 160 Int > 80 Int + 160 Secondary + Socket Bonus. If so, then match the socket.
Any tip about taking destro on Dark Animus H?
We're having problems at Ra-Den so I guess I'll have to respec for destro again.
Multidot immo and rof on small anima to keep embers up. Dump CBs rest of the time.
3x sburn on DA as anima die.
Rest of the fight is just keeping RoF on massives and DA for embers.
If you're doing matter swaps, get soul link and soul leech. If you're not, might see more dps with sac.
Lots of padding to be done on this fight, sooooo.... Guess that'sup to you.
FnB+Immo is pretty nice with MF, with RoF to spam CB during the whole encounter (well except when the healers dispel the matter swap 0.1s before you finish your Chaos bolt cast).
Sadly, we somehow got managed to KILL HIM .
But the info is very nice, I'm thinking into the future patch hence Demo+UVLS rotation is likely to be gone after RPPM nerf.
Why even play Destro on DA when you're struggling? Affli does insane burst if you dot up 4 anima golems and boss on pull with bloodlust. If you have UVLS then Demo is also a much better option. Remember Destro does have rampup time (an insane one when you can't abuse RoF). From personal experience I find the first 20s of DA HC being the most important part of the fight. The only fights I personally find Destro appealing with similar gear as you are Horridon, Primordius and Ra-Den.
But... Destro is awesome on DA at the pull, there is absolutely no ramp-up with RoFWhy even play Destro on DA when you're struggling?

And FnB+Immo does wonders.
(this might be less true in 10man, I only did it once and with a weird strategy without killing adds)

im starting my lock up again and im wondering with my current ilvl what gems should we use. im sure im gemmed wrong atm. i was thinking first that destruction for around 500 ilvl is crit>mastery>haste but idk... its confusing
armory is http://us.battle.net/wow/en/characte...Altoice/simple
and yes i know i need slightly more hit.. but is it crit first then reforge to haste at around 500 ilvl? or haste mastery? or crit mastery... idk
Quick question: Is it worth replacing 530 Robes of Mutagenic Blood for a LFR tier chest to obtain the 4 set?
4 set is pretty weak by most accounts. Destro with 2pc and otherwise sticking to the max ilvl seems to be stronger. Of course usual "run your own simC" logic applies but just guesstimating that would be my expectation.
I'm afraid the same thing will happen to Destro again next tier since it seems the developers don't want to change Destro's mechanics and instead just want to buff coeffs in a balance pass.
To be clear even at 550 item level there is no fight destro sucks on.
Jin - ye . .
Horridon - Dont see the problem here
Council - Huge sustained damage with all the ember gen
Tortos - Aoe is monstrous and can be done while getting bounced around
Megaera - Extra ember gen, shadowburn embers from adds
Jikun - Damage buff and aoe
Durumu - No need for statement
Primo - Same as above
DA - Depends on strat, but i see no reason why destruction is bad here
IQ - Mostly single target which keeps destruction down a bit, but you can make fancy use of the burn phase
Twins - Extra embers, good aoe, havoc burn
Lei shen - Aoe is sick for the balls, mobile execute
Raden - Same comment as Jin
You cant make statements as broad as above when people are asking for advice, if you actually try to play the spec well it is incredibly strong (mostly due to Rof ember gen), you will one in every 5 pulls get better numbers as demo 'IF' your trinket procs, if you wanna play that game then go enjoy.
Bottom line, while we still have rain of fire with the 5.3 mechanics destruction is perfectly viable on every boss in Tot.
Edit - Spelling mistake
