Hey guys, so I've got an Warlock alt I thought I'd go after Green Fire on; the toon is by no means my primary alt, so I'm very much a lock noob. XD I've seen several guides suggest going Destro, so I thought I'd give it a shot. I was practicing to get the hang of it on Timeless Isle, but on several elite fights, I find myself running out of mana (and before the mob hits 20% health, so no Shadowburn), and wanted to try to figure out what I was doing wrong to make that happen.
I realize I'm not including a log of my spells cast, so bear with me. XD I'm doing my best to follow the Icy Veins destro guide as far as basic rotation, but I'm positive it's a rotation issue on my part. I think I've caught myself using Incinerate 5+ times in a row, and I think on about the 2nd or 3rd time through the "rotation"
I'm trying to do Shadowburn when it's available, but I notice that I don't always have enough embers to do it; part of that may be because I've spec'd Grimoire of Sacrifice, and so my Void Lord is only a Void Walker (I'm just not cool enough to sit there and dps elite mobs on Timeless Isle by myself, lol). It could also be my spec choices; I haven't even chosen a level 90 talent yet, and I have 1 out of 3 major glyphs.
Another thing could be I haven't done any reforging. As I'm only going after Green Fire on a very much alt toon, I'm not sure I'm looking to spend a bunch of cash on gems and enchants, especially since my IL isn't that great (my AIL is about 478 I believe), so I'm mostly relying on reforging (which hasn't been done either, lol), but if gems and enchants will actually make the difference, I'll check into it. I may be too hit heavy, and could be reforging for either Mastery, or at least crit.
I'm pretty embarassed to share this, but... in the interest of some better instruction...
TL;DR: I guess I'm looking for some "ah ha" comment from someone who recognizes why a destro noob would be OOMing on elite mobs. XD
