As far as what he should run? I would wager to say HTF Breath and NTF Wushoolay. H UVLS might edge out Wushoolay's because it's got a huge ilvl disparity and the raw intellect would likely put it over top of Wushoolay's.
Only trinkets I have are HTF Hydra and HTF UVLS, desperately wanted HCTF Wushoolay to drop/be coined this week but JK never seen it drop once this whole tier.
I'm just grateful Bindings drops from the 1st boss in the instance ( That will be open for flex on 5.4) and will die on Heroic very quicky.
I'm running with UVLS + Hydra, both normal (am 13/13) .. This week was the last chance to get Wush from Council and our boomkin won the roll .. Hopefully affliction is OP enough to make up for dodgy trinkets!
I was expecting a buff instead of a nerf..Affliction
Agony damage has been increased by 16%.
Drain Soul no longer energizes Soul Shards from the pets and guardians of players, and now deals 34% less damage. If other periodic Affliction damage effects are triggered by Drain Soul, they now deal 60% of their normal damage (down from 100%).
Malefic Grasp now deals 34% less damage, and causes all of the Warlock's other periodic Affliction damage effects to instantly deal 30% of their normal periodic damage (down from 50%).
Unstable Affliction damage has been increased by 21%.
We are getting a nerfbat on trinkets (still I see lots of ppl talking bout UVLS?)
After reading above I can someone tell me if we get an overal buff to afflication? If so how? (I see Shards going down; I see MG doing less damage and worse of all Drain Soul no more energising Shards = bad execute phase?
Do the addition damage from the rest of the DoT make up for it?
Break during WoD - comming back for Legion.
When people ask a question, they usually tend to seek and answer that directly answers their unique phrased question and not another differently phrased question. It comes down to having a smooth answer. When I was asking question I went back 11 pages it was all destruction topics. Do you really expect me to go though possibly 2-3 dozens pages to seek an answer?
Drain Soul still gives shards, just not off pets/guardians. This is purely a PvP change.
Trinkets are not bad at all, I would even say Wushoolay and Breath are getting buffed.
