I barely have free time so I play as a casual, LFR and random bg's. I only play 2 chars, feral and destro, they've both got about the same ilvl (485 or so). The druid has a little better gear overall but the weapon is only 470 (months and months of LFR and weapons refuse to drop) and feral is all about the weapon, and the warlock has a little worse gear but way way better weapon. They're both fully enchanted and gemmed.
Here's the thing. I play them both pretty well I think, but my concern comes when blowing CD's to burst. Destruction's burst is supposed to be one of the strongest (and easiest) in game, but the slow cast of Chaos Bolts while Instability is up doesn't seem any strong to me. In fact, with such a crappy weapon, I still manage to deal about double the damage I can deal with warlock in the same amount of time of burst with my feral.
I understand that warlock CD are shorter than feral's (2 min vs 3min) so it's logical that feral's burst should be stronger, but not by such a big margin. So I've ended up thinking I'm doing something wrong during Instability. So I'm looking for some advice.
This is what I usually do: Pop DS + Synapse + trinkets + Grimoire: Imp, then I refresh Immolate and start casting the 1st CB. After casting it I cast RoF to try to get and extra Ember and so an extra CB. I keep casting CB's and weaving in between Conflagrates. I usually manage to land 5 CBs, 2 Conflagrates, 1 or 2 RoF and end refreshing again Immolate.
I think what I do is pretty neat, but the dps I do is quite disappointing. So... what am I doing wrong? Or it's just my low ilvl and it gets better as ilvl rises?
