    Yeah, you're too confused to bother explaining this to.

    211K damage? Looks like ya need to be geared. That only happens on fresh 90's not wearing PVP gear.

    Full Prideful can take a CB with full cool downs and it usually comes to about 112K damage or so.

    Seems like you need to gear your warlock more because 112k with cooldowns is really really low lol

    You always have to keep an eye on those damn Destruction locks. For me, watching Destruction locks is kind of like blaming the victim (I know that's wrong, but it isn't a problem when you have that mind set) you have to do everything in your power to stop them from completing a cast of CB, that way, you never suffer a spike in damage. Or if interruption is not possible, prepare your defensive cds (or your anus, whatever).

    It's not any different in a BG, so why would an arena be different?

    Geared for what? After the trinket 2set you don't get any damage reduction from gear. Its always funny when people still use this old argument; it makes it obvious they don't know what they are talking about. My pally could be naked with the 2 pvp trinkets and take the same damage as if I had 100% prideful on (assuming I dont gem or enchant resil which I wont). ~250k CBs with full gear in arenas is not unheard of.

    that is normal and expected. destro can work until you meet players who have actually been above 2400 in arena, after that unless your name is thugonomicz and have amazing team synergy you wont get very far.

    the chaos bolts are fine, what i do find mildly annoying is the 90-100k incinerates/conflags.

    There's a new expansion out called Mists of Pandaria: it's really dandy; resilience is now baseline, damage and health pools have sky rocketed.

    You should join us in Pandaria sometime.

    In all seriousness though, nothing in your post even remotely resembled anything accurate.

    I took a 200k chaos bolt in arena yesterday and died because of it. You know who I blamed? Myself.

    Chaos bolt isn't very good in arena, unless you time it perfectly, and even then you need another guy to help you burst down the target...
    This is why I play demo, you just make sure you ahve the healer in a full cc chain, while you burst down a dps

    Considering a chaos bolt is quite easy to prevent or ground/spell reflect/whatever unless the warlocks blows all his CC, I don't think this is anything special.

    I have gone back to Affliction now for 2's now. Destro is great for BG's, but in arena it is just too frustrating and hard to do effective damage with. Any team with half a brain will just train you into the ground to stop you casting chaos bolt and as soon as you hit the wall of warrior/dk healer comps after 1500 it becomes even harder. At least with Affliction you can just dot, run and do some damage before you are stomped.

    Compared to affli where you just faceroll your dots around the entire team and play "let's DR fear on the entire team", it's a bit more to setup and accomplish.

    Nothing more needs to be said

    My mage consistently ice lances for 90k back to back. And that is with orb hitting them and living bomb ticking.... 200k is only a 1/3 of your hp in full prideful.

    Met a few destros at 2k mmr last season, know of a few at 2400-2600 at the moment too, so not really :P

    and in comparison to affli?

    can't really see why you whine on a destro Lock when rogues for instance which i play can global shit, for instance i can kill a hunter from 100% hp to zero if he doesn't have a trinket, and pretty much nothing can stop me from doing so if i got cloak etc

    faced quite a few destro locks at low rated arena, around 1300 on my alt hunter, and i don't think ive seen too many chaos bolts actually casted yet, they are better off casting a few incinerates i think and using the embers to heal themselves. in arena i much rather face a destro lock than a afflic lock.
    Too cool for a signature

    The only damage reduction you get from PVP gear is the trinket set bonus (assuming you use the %crit damage meta gem). And a prideful geared CB with CDs and trinkets up hits for FAR more than 112k.

    I like how this debate purely arises from the fact, that chaos bolt is a high damage ability. It is easier to notice a 200k chaos bolt than three 80k ice lances, although both casters actually need the same time to "cast" their abilities. Same with warriors using reck, monks using TEB with rsk or FoF, hunters using their cd's and spamming arcane shots and maybe even devouring plague. Every class has their cooldowns and their hard hitting abilities, yet I always seen whine-posts about the chaos bolt since it's "a 211k crit", almost ignoring the fact, that you need to cast it for a good while.
    That's some serious lowrated business there.
