I could use some warlock feedback

Postby Plinthje on Wed Sep 04, 2013 3:24 pm

Dear Warlocks of Midwinter,

I often watch Slootbag's stream while you test raiding. I like to watch specially to the locks because i am a lock for 8-9 years already.
This is my current build: http://eu.battle.net/wow/en/character/d ... hje/simple
i play affl for all my life but i recently hear from my guild my dps sucks.
they dont wanna loose me because i am the only lock in this small 10 men guild.

what i like to ask if the fellow locks could took a look and give me some tips. Those noxxic tips i using.

i would be glad.

cheers and keep up the nice work

Drop herbalism
Gem mastery if you're gonna stay aff
Get eng/tailoring
You're missing a lei shems trinket, that's a lot of dps you're missing as aff but it shouldn't matter in 5.4.

Hard for anyone to tell you what to do without combat logs.

i got the lei shen trinket from LFR i swapped that out because it felt for me as dps lost.

let me try to find a logg: http://www.worldoflogs.com/reports/rt-5 ... details/9/

this is from yesterday i had the lei shen trinket on in those fights.

every feedback is oke really, but i was thinking to stack haste till caps then go for mastery.

I'm just going to focus on Affliction since that's what you seem to be interested in and that's what will become best next patch.

The first thing you want to do is fix your gemming and reforging. Change all your current +320 haste gems to +320 mastery gems and same with +80 int +160 haste to +80 int +160 mastery. You want to reach a few caps (5100 hit and 9778 haste) and then dump everything else into mastery. At some point next tier you might aim to go for 13157 haste but don't focus on that right now.

Like Xonk said you really should drop herbalism and get a better professions. If you were only to chose one get engineering because it will synchronize extremely well next tier with our new AV being able to be used once a minute.

After looking at your logs I can see a bunch of problems. You really need to just go do some research on how to play Affliction correctly. You can find some decent guides on MMO-Champions sticky threads, Icy-veins, Sparkuggz or Evrelia's youtube channels. I didn't look at every pull but I did a quick glance at several of the longer ones and notice the uptime on some of your dots are less than 50% and you're not using Dark Soul more than once a fight (some pulls you didn't use it once) and it's our biggest dps increase CD.

Once you've looked up some guides make sure to get yourself some sort of DOT tracker and be sure your 3 dots are always up. Be sure to also get some sort of buff tracking addon and make sure you track your trinkets. When you get a Woosh or UVLS proc you're going to want to SB:SS to get your buffs up. The last thing for now is that one of the biggest things I see new people doing is using haunt when your dots are about to expire. Whenever you haunt the goal is to channel MG throughout the entire haunt duration without interruption. Be sure you're pooling shards so that you can SB:SS and keep haunt running throughout your entire Dark Soul buff.

If you have any direct questions after looking at some basic guides feel free to ask.

jhiggy first of all tks for your feedback

the SB:SS problem i noticed today yes, i wasn't aware i mixed up the rotation.

I readed icy veins, and they suggest to use AFFDOT addon for tracking, very simple to use.

you say to cut back my haste ratings. i thought that haste was better then mastery for affl.
my current rating is 15697, in my eyes i goaled the new cap, or is it really more for T16? sorry i am bit confused.

i noticed my dot uptime also i need to be more aware to upkeep that.

so should it be better to use woosh and UVLS trinkets? or keep breath of the hydra and/or the rep trinket from shado-pan, int with haste proc.
and which gems should i use for blue slots: i got atm 160 haste/160hit.

i really appreciate the help.

Assuming you have roughly the same ilevel for each trinket you want to use UVLS and woosh. The reason woosh is so good is because you can track the proc and SB:SS once the buff hits max stacks. Keep in mind that this is just for Affliction, if you go demo or destro you want to go breath or cha-ye over woosh.

For greens you generally want to use +160 hit +160 mastery.

How better than Demo is Affliction gonna be? What's going to make it better?

It just seems like with double Dark Soul it's a big Demo buff

You should demo it out and afflict us with the results of your destruction!
