Destruction Warlock Guide (5.3) — 8 Comments

  1. Ahhh, now this is how I like a guide. Thanks!

    One question: when targets are outside Shadowburn range, is it more productive to use Havoc with Chaos Bolt or with the next 3 other spells?

    • If targets are above 20%, you will get the most damage out of using Chaos Bolt with Havoc.

      That said, if you need to build up embers quickly it can be nice to Havoc and use 3 incinerates (or 1 immolate and 2 incinerate). I use this on Megarea’s heads where only the dps on one head counts. It allows me to build embers quicker for more Chaos Bolts on the head we’re killing 🙂

      Glad you like the guide!

  2. I have considered going as far as putting Dark Soul in a macro so that it triggers whenever I start casting CB. Currently I have the Static Casters Medallion, with an on-use buff of Static Charge trigger. 1 minute cooldown is about long enough before I am casting again.

    • That’s an interesting idea, and could definitely be useful. I prefer to have full control over when I pop it though, in case I need to wait for a burn phase or similar. 🙂

  3. Excellent guide! I love a guide that suggests rotations even though we are working with a priority system. Thanks so much! Now, how about that 5.4 update? 😉

    • While there’s no rotation per se, since we do work on a priority system, I do find that there are times when you get so used to your current gear/timing that you find a nice rhythm. The opening sequence is almost always the same as well. For me, I have an easier time remembering it like this, and just have to look out for procs etc.

      There wont be a 5.4 update until the patch is live, since everything is still changing too much 🙂 I’m hoping the actual priority/rotation doesn’t change much though cause I’m quite enjoying it as it is. 🙂

    Fantastic read! I’ve saved your site and I’m including your RSS feeds to
