Im 527 item level, http://eu.battle.net/wow/en/characte...e/Ace/advanced
I just wanted to know what specs are optimum for my item level and gear. I have UVLS LFR, Wushu thunderforged normal and the valor trinket from Isle.
if there is someone who can give me a tip on which spec can give me the most optimal dps in my situation i would be glad
Pondering the same question... read the last 20 pages or so and couldn't anything definite.. i know the general consensus is "play the spec you like" but im torn b/w destro / affl as my MS in light of the changes in 5.4 (granted i haven't had the chance to play too much since it dropped) ... was wondering if any destro locks who tried affl can tell me their feeling on this? should i make the switch?!?
edit* im currently destro and am saddened by the nerfs of the spec... but am intrigued by the boosts of affl

Well i enjoy all 3 specs but i played destro for a while and i prefer to play demo/affliction this patch. I was on vication for a while and all my guildies friends are 545 item level and now that i am back I don't want to be boosted through SOO and i want to try the most optimum spec at my item level in order to help them out
im looking for the optimal dps spec as well... any suggestions are welcome
25 Man Garrosh: Even if you don't AoE in p1 (BrM monk tank + usage of Ironstars means probably wiser to just burn the boss) beyond RoF for embers and some Sburn sniping, destro is suprisingly good for the whole fight.
And yeah if you do AoE p1, omg.
At some point we'll see some ridiculous parses when people blatantly pad and AoE minions in P2 and 3.
World of Logs is now tracking the fights. Destro is basically last everywhere (among lock specs), even Spoils, often by a huge margin. Might need more data though.
Thanks, zumzum... this is what i feared :-( ... havent ran affl since pre-cata
Play what you like, play what you're good at and get better at it...until Blizz knocks your feet out from under you and you have to relearn gearing, rotations and strats.
I really wish they would hire one or two people with a sense of direction to work on and be answerable for each class.
Destro could have been so great. I wonder what we have to look forward to next expac.

Stop playing games with my heart!
I don't know if I'm right on this but it feels like the big disparity between a back drafted Incinerate and a non bd'd Incinerate is what makes the spec feel slow. It prevents us from stacking haste because we go sub GCD so easy?
I do feel like I can't cast my chaos bolts fast enough to take advantage of Procs. I can't sneak Incinerates while stutter stepping as easy. Maybe the damage/cast time ratios of back drafted and non BD'd Incinerates could be addressed?
Even with RoF nerf there are things to SB snipe off of so I don't feel ember starved.
I would love a reason to have more haste.

Dammit, just when I was almost ready to do something else of my nights -_-
They wake up far too late but at least they do something. I guess their tools didn't see that situation coming !
10% buff to Incinerate, 5% buff to Incinerate, ember generation buffs... it's like if there wasn't a PTR.

Strike me down for defending the dev team as they don't seem to plan anything ahead of time, but we have aff who is great, demo which is more than competitive, and now destro "might" also become competitive. Wonder how many classes can say they get the same care for 3 different specs.
