I never clip the first bod anymore, after that its kind of hit and miss of if I remember what I had when I cast it before though I will usually always clip if I have meta and any other kind of proc at the same time. I will be switching glyphs, I'm not bothering now because spine isn't until tomorrow night and I do 5mans and easy crap just to play the character for fun. Doomguard might've been better if I wasn't fumbling after casting a damn soulstone, lining him up with cooldowns was actually fun when I started to get more serious on warlock but what is good doomguard damage then? Like slightly more, or does it look hundreds of thousands too low?
My haste is as is + a bit more since I switch cunning for valor trinket, reforged to mastery. It'll be like 2250 on spine, 2k~ right over the corruption extra tick with cunning on instead. My DI target was just a random lfr dude and the two boomkins were both in mostly pvp gear so I wasn't very interested in them. For lfr I'd just prefer a resto druid lol but none of those either.
And for pre casting, I guess I can try, but my warlock has been pugging almost every run since I started playing it, couple of mostly friend runs. I only just joined a pug and got asked to stay with them last week and they were good on their own, but even then they were kind of fixing tanks, so it was all in flux.
I had 3k~ haste before but it's so impossible trying to get meta up everytime on 25% now. I think the first time I ever tried spine it was like 15%, and even then I couldn't guarantee it. If it was 0(or I guess 5% with that huge tendon nerf) I would probably stick with pure haste and try for a meta every lift. I'd probably cut off my own arm than want to play warlock on spine before the big nerf hit.
I guess some of those top logs(heroic) are with faster killing groups, legendary and maybe a PI or something; it just doesn't seem like I can compete at all.
Oh and here for that macro.
I didn't know the recording wouldn't pick up my cursor so it makes it a little funny to watch(clicked the meta icon on the top row left side) and I didn't realize CoE was still up, but you see it refresh and me use meta all in one go. Even if I just cast meta and then curse of elements manually while everything looks like it's on cooldown, little spinning colorization thing, it does go off. Though until you said so I didn't know this seemed weird, it does now. Oh and yes I only press the macro once for both spells.
