    ^ Being able to Shadowburn a lot means free chaos bolts over and over. This is why I feel destro beats demno for sustained AOE (galak/spoils/garrosh maybe) Demno can't get the killing blow IN demo form guaranteed for its free fury unlike Shadowburn sniping.

    I have been informed that affliction warlocks are Soulburn+Seed>Seed>Soul swapping from 1 target to 10 and getting double seed explosions with 2 SS GCDs instead of casting Seed on a new target everytime. Is THIS coupled with MFury how the afflocks do monstrous aoe? I know at least 2 people mentioned afflic AOE can easily compete maybe this is how/why. Someone also suggested throwing in a SB:SS before swapping, I tried doing that on dummies but the seeds explode before you can swap them off so putting up 2 seeds seems best. Ideas?

    Also we are going tonight with a new 544 recruit warlock he will be demno entire raid I will stick with afflic/destro will update with comparison our gear is rather similar I'm 550.

    On some kills i wasnt top damage because i decided to stick with mechanics, but basically any fight that was cheesable with shadowburn) (this is a lot) my damage was absoloutely insane.

    The first 2 were ninja pulled so im not really counting those 2.

    Nourshen - This was fine, havoc shadowburn is fun, adds die fast in the realm.

    Sha of Pride - Done really well on this, nice hp on adds for aoe burning and shadowburn finishing

    Galakras - So many adds, just epic for destruction

    Juggernaut - Single target and i was still top which was quite surprising

    Dark shaman - Got raped on the pull, but made it up by the end, Destro aoe isint that great for killing the adds so i mainly let the ele shaman do it and sniped with shadowburn

    Nazgrim - We just tunneled this through def stance and well ye shadowburn sniping

    Malkorok - This was fine, nothing to special though

    Spoils - Really good, doesnt need much justifaction i think

    Thok - Played this really badly (was getting late so i got interrupted shit tons), but ye this i wasnt top on, but was top 3 i think


    On the last 3 boss's which we done tonite -

    Siege - (we 9 manned this due to 1 being late) i wasnt on the assembly line so this was happy go lucky and i topped.

    Paragons - This fight is awesome for destruction tbh, multiple executes, i can keep rain of fire down spread immolate and use havoc for extra embers, really really good fight for destruction.

    Garrosh - L O L, this fiight was insane, not really hard to see why destro rapes face here.
    U know that u can hype up any spec like this if u rly want too and comparing numbers between all the 3 warlock specs and not just destro from t15 to t16 destro is outclassed in so many ways.
    Btw i also do wonder why you think destro looks better this tier than the previous one because i know that on progression in t15 destro actually had a few bosses where they were the best like horridon, primo, tied with demo on durumu, ra-den. When you then compare it to this upcoming tier the only fights i would even be thinking of switching but im still not sure it would be worth it is galakras and spoils (havent tried garrosh yet but from ptr testing i got the impression that aoe wasnt rly the hard part but doing sustained single target dmg.

    Im not hyping the spec at all.

    The spec is extremely competitive now, which it should be.

    The general thought here is that destruction is weak which is utter bullshit if im honest.

    In t15 (at the end of the tier) destruction was so weak that it is extremely nice to feel super competitive in every aspect of the game.

    Just because a spec may not be the best (ST /Aoe / Cleave / Burst) doesnt mean its bad, in general all the warlock specs are strong, but you can definetly play destruction without being a burdon on your raid right at this moment, and for aoe when destro has the 2 and 4 set there is absoloutely no mission of affi or demo keeping up (but that is my opinion).

    There is the other thing to, i did mention 10 man on purpose because in 25 man in general it is a lot harder to snipe shadowburns and this DRASTICALLY drops destructions damage.

    Played as Demo the first 8 Bosses with 548ilvl H:Hydra(tf) & H:UVLS on 8100haste>mastery>haste & Ld Cloak
    I was very surprised that my dmg was very competive.

    Immerseus: ~190k
    Protectors: ~320k
    Norushen (i dont logged): ~240k
    Sha: ~260k (no buff luck :/)
    Galakras: ~245k
    Iron Juggernaut: ~205k
    Dark Shaman: ~320k
    Nazgrim: ~222k
    Malkorok: ~230k (i lagged in this fight very hard, my ping explode to 1200ms)

    We killed the first 8 Bosses on 1st or 2nd(i think) Try so there isn't Time to Optimize the Dmg, mostly the kills was very chaotic.
    UVLS Procced pretty well.

    Do you guys also have the problem of having too much Hit? I got lucky yesterday and receiving 3 new items from SoO each with so much hit on them!!! I reforged everything re-gemmed to pure int everywhere even changed Wushoo against Hydra to gid rid of some Hit but still i have 18.5%... and when I see the loottable I see even more items with so much hit incoming....

    Not sure how Destro would beat Demo for AOE on Garrosh. My AOE burst hit 2 million DPS for warbringers add waves. There's no way Destro can compete with that.

    Hell, even without saying that Destro is bad, I doubt that Destro could beat Demo on Galakras or Spoils either. Simply because Demo is that good. That 20% nerf to AOE was warranted.

    What's your ilevel? I've never used soul link on them, but I had around 540 when I started killing them though.

    No, I have just one item from SoO flex but using Wush and actually had to reforge some items to hit, you can see if you click my signature... I think you've been just taking items with too much hit from ToT.

    That has been my problem so far, there is just no way to exec the adds because a lot of them have like 1-2M HP even in 25 man ><
    I hope it will be better in heroic mode...

    Destro sustained aoe *was* already better than demo, and they just buffed incinerate twice (which is also main filler for aoe) while they also nerfed hellfire / immo aura for demo.

    So as long as you can generate enough embers (pretty sure you can on garrosh) destro's aoe *should* be stronger.

    Maybe I'll test Destro next week on Garrosh. However, if used properly I don't think Demo AOE can be beat on those 3 fights.

    Ask your raid leader. For the next week, you don't want to waste all those gcd ( raid wide ), get this job.

    I used the overgrown lilypad for healing Voidlord, another option I can think of would be using 2 pieces of t5, but I personally haven't tried it.

    Not sure what to make of this.
    Ask Mr Robot is a great tool but the weights are totally wrong.
    How am I using it?
    First I use simcraft with 50k iterations 8 threads with scaling for int, spell power, hit, crit, haste , mastery.
    Then I input the weights in custom weights.
    I cook a little depending on what I want. For affli & my ilvl I add a haste soft cap at 9778 then give haste 9778+ a weights > crit but < to second to last stat.

    This basically give you the best single target scenario.
    Then you can use the optimize button, export and use the ingame askmr robot addon which is quite incredible. It will tell you which gems you need to buy/craft/use in your inventory, what to reenchant and do auto reforging.

    If you favor AOE scenario, which you should probably do for T16 raid, you may want to inflate the value of mastery.

    Tips & tricks per boss very welcome pls (grimoire, pet, talents/glyphs changes, ember usage).
    I find it very hard to believe one can be first on protector if any other player is playing a dot class.

    He's playing in 10 man though, so there isn't that much competition for the 1st place and much more opportunities to exec (but I don't think you can gain embers with SB on Protectors ?)

    Exactly. In a 10 man raid you'll have plenty of time and opportunities to SB-snipe properly.
    Regarding the Protectors; If I remember correctly (died extremely fast in normal) I was not able to get shards from the summoned adds so SB shouldn't get any extra embers either.

    IIRC they jump away when they die (because they spawn from the boss him/herself). So they're extensions of the boss, kinda.
