As the title implies, I'm looking for what some fellow locks are doing on Thok HC as destruction, since I'm underperforming DPS-wise on the fight, due to not getting casts off except conflagrate, or going totally oom from rain of fire / fel flame spam on higher stacks. It seems once acceleration stacks reach to about 8-9 I can no longer do most regular hardcasts (definitely no chaosbolts or not backdrafted incinerates). Once stacks reach 15 we start a devotion aura chain, so I use second dark soul and start unloading chaos bolts. If devotion aura overlap is missed by a second, you end up getting locked out, so possibly moving second dark soul to the kite phase. Once our devotion chain is off, I'm again reverting to rain of fire / felflaming until the start of the next kite phase.
When bats come out, f&b aoe-ing them is fairly hard for me to not get locked out (we do not have a devotion aura for that part). What do others do there?
Currently mastery > crit > haste reforged, thinking of going mastery > haste > crit or even haste > mastery > crit just to be able to get casts of quicker.
Due to the constant damage I am running with unending resolve glyphed, so can't use it to prevent cast interruption.
One final problem: my pet keeps dieing once boss reaches higher stacks. Been running with soul link + improved imp for helping with dispels and it just gets killed from soul link damage.
Any tips welcome, including glyphs / talents that differ from what I'm used to taking.
