We have just finished clearing Normal DS but I don't think I'm getting the most out of my char from Warmaster onwards, normally I play Demonology and I understand that afflicition is better for the fights after this?
Can you let me know what the best spec is for Warmaster/Spine/DW ?
Also, as we're looking to progress on HC modes, is there a large change in which spec's are "best" for certain fights?
If you wanna progress, enchant the best onto your items:
Bracers - 50 Int
Gloves - 65 Mastery or 50 Haste
And for boots I think Lavawalker would do better then flat 50 Mastery.
Also raise your second profession, and change it to Tailoring, Inscription, etc. Some profession which will give you antoher 80 int.
When it comes to the best spec, it almost depends on your raid comp and playstyle. With BoH Destru is a good choice for Morchok, but Demo and Affli perfom as well. On Yor'sahj I would prefer Demo or Affli over Destru, better perform during black phases.
Zon'ozz is kinda tricky, with Destru has nice tools for lowering incomming dmg (nether protection, self dispell).
On Hagara the same tools are kinda nice, but multidotting on an ice phase could also help.
Ultraxion is a nice fight for Demo. Blackthorn is nice as affli with multidotting everything on the ship and then focusing the drakes. On Spine I perfom best with Destru.
All of these above are just suggestions. It heavily depends on your playstyle and raid comp. 10% Spellpower buff is very nice to have if your raid comp don't bring that buff. Also these are my experiences with a 10man Raid, dunno if it's different on 25man Raid.
Thanks alot for the replies so far. The overview of best spec for each encounter/role helped me to clear this issue and i decided to stick with combat since overall it appears to be the best spec for HC DS.
Jmickey, thank you for making this thread. I have a question about the haste thresholds. I take the numbers you posted to mean that this is the haste you should be at unbuffed, in order to gain an additional tick while raid buffed. However, I'm not sure if I am correct on this. Does anyone mind clarifying this for me? Thanks.
The thing is that im trying to get to the block cap and as you can see i have about 94 all together, i whould think from what you are writing about prot palys,that i should be able to reatch the cap by now or are i wrong? whould be glad if some1 could maby take a look and tell me maby what i can improve and so on..
Are you bloody kidding?
1st post, here is your stat weights.
By the way, in my experience I had problems of 2000haste, which was disgusting in case of my crit was 1969 and I've not seen any Gurthalak procs. Later on I swapped gems to gain +5 hit and, truely, rule out 42 more haste, glory to the calculus.
Turn off 26 expertice, you don't need it. Switch to Crit reforge of Udk before u got 4 pc t13
Check out my character if you're interested.
Run yourself with statweights from p.1 on WoW reforge. If you have any other issues, feel free to ask PM or in DK Q&A
I would like to ask for some help with my protection paladin!
The problem is that I am trying to get to the block cap of 102.4%, and as you can see on my armory link;Juggérnaut @ Silvermoon - Game Guide - World of Warcraft
I have done almost everything possible to reach the cap and I am stumped on how to attain those stats. Perhaps you have some tips, tricks or general suggestions that could help me.
I have quick question. What is DPS difference between Frost and Unholy on a raid dummy.
I just switched from Frost to Unholy and was devastated by amount of DPS i have lost.
I know that Unholy has big dmg income from AMS, which cannot be used on a dummy, but 4k dps is too much i think.
I have 394 ilvl in both specs. In Frost i run with HoM (n) and No'Kaled (n), i do around 26k+ on a raid dummy. In Unholy i run with Gurthalak (n) and i do around 22k+ on a raid dummy.
