    Dark Intent on a Shadow was so insane, I always looked for them tbh. If I remember correctly I think the highest uptime on DI was giving it to a Fire Mage?

    I seem to remember it being resto druid but I'm old and could be misremembering things.

    I think for DPS it was Fire Mage, I distinctly remember a table for uptimes on Elitist Jerks.

    There were 2 considerations at the time.

    1) How much damage does the warlock get from DI?
    2) How much damage does the target get from DI?

    Resto Druids gave the warlock the greatest number of stacks. IIRC it was something like Resto > Fire > Shadow > Boomkin
    Shadow got the most damage from DI out of anyone. IIRC it was something like Shadow > Fire > Boomkin

    (Or something like that.)


    What took a lot of convincing from me to our warlock is that raid DPS was higest by putting it on a Shadow Priest even though he lost some uptime on the DI buff.

    Oh I definitely knew how DI worked. idk why Fire Mage sticks out in my brain so much though, but whatever.

    Anyone remember the very first iteration of DI and that horrible noise it made ? People in group asking you to stop making that noise, ...What the hell was that.... I laughed just a little now just thinking about it

    druid was so strong for us because it was already pre-stacked on the pull. a good spriest gave great uptime, but fire mage was close enough that it came down to who was better, when it went on dps

    I do remember this!

    I remember my first raid while i was on trial and the 2 mages where arguing with me, the RL and eachother in both whispers and vent about who should get DI

  12. #892
    So you guys are still on about Dark Intent? i Always used it on a sp, for the most raid damage. and yes everyone wanted it.
    by the way, what was the name of the similar buff mages had at the time?

    That's right. For a while I just would NOT put DI on a Mage. Simply because of the way they circle-jerked FM in Wrath.

    Don;t remind me of this :@ At the start of Cata raiding, I was a trial in a good guild. The thing is that there was a lock that whispered the other 2-3 locks to buff HIM with DI. It was so annoying. I was almost felt relief when they fell apart as a guild :P
    Integrity is doing the right thing, even when no one is watching.

    With Beta officially being over and release imminent I think it's time we stop using the Beta threads and start fully using the Spec guide stickies.

    For Destruction please continue discussion in this thread: http://www.mmo-champion.com/threads/...-Warlock-Guide
