I think this is one of the messiest forums i have Ever- seen. LOL how can anyone get much out of all of this symbolization, and math etc etc, def a blur to read thru and kind of annoying. what about people who just think ok i dont have alot of experience to test alot, i just need to kno what i should do for best results...i know what the acronyms mean, and i see there is on the site a spot that lets people kno what DS, SS, BS etc means.. I see alot of people that are being ignored, best thing i say is get what info u can about ur question and go test it urself. its not too direct of a thread, same stuff being said over an over and over.

When i must use Slam? How many rage i must have for it?
How many GCD and seconds in 1 cycle?
After reading through the forums and messing a bit with the talents I came up with this 20/51/0 spec. I know the general consensus is that picking up combustion is a bad idea, however in my opinion it can compliment your performance when you would just simply casting your spells, outside of the bloodlust/heroism+potion of wild magic period.
However I dropped Burning Soul and I'm afraid that decision doomed the build.
Although it has a potential damage wise in theory, but in raid environment it might fail miserably. This is why I would like see your opinion about my insane talent distribution.
p.s: this is my first post and mildly confused which would be the appropiate thread for this post.
hello i have been reading alot and i am glad i found this forum. i am a lvl 80 affliction lock looking to learn on best way to imrove my charecter. i am still learning, a novice to most of you. i think i am going in the right direction but need to gear up right now. plz let me know what you think.
That and you say you're using your rotation in blood presence, when it's been proven that unholy presence = 25% more km procs and it allows you to weave in fs's when you get a km mid rotation and a howling blast during a rime proc. This equates to more dps, if I've read the entire post correctly...
That and I believe with your gear it's been proven that for two disease PS - IT - OB - BS - BS / OB - PS - IT - IT - IT = more damage. That's why the majority of the posters are recommending only 3 points into unholy because you don't need the extra disease time to keep your 30% damage bonus for rp dumps at the end, and again reinforcing why you use unholy presence to fire off abilities quicker.
Well they fixed the 4x t8 bonus now but I have looked all over and cannot find a simple answer what Im trying to determine is a best in slot list now assuming 4 peice will be top dps which of the off peices to use robes of the umbral brute or collar of the wyrmhunter etc. Any advice would be appreciated.
Also I notice alot of boomkins in the wws thread carrying around 550+ haste and like 15% crit im wondering what is the ideal stats for a 25 man ulduar raiding moonkin.
I use a Lunar eclipse rotation and am looking to up some dps so any advice would be outstanding. Thank you for reading and taking time to respond I hope I'm not going off of subject to much.
If you are running ITx6 (or any Frost build, really) you want to be at the 17% raid spell cap, but 3% of that is going to be coming from Spriest/Boomkin. If you are Alliance and have a pocket Dranei you can afford to drop to 13% hit, horde 14%. Thankfully Ulduar gear has an incredible amount of hit on it and I hit raid spellcap with Misery without gemming/enchanting for it. If you have the option you can drop a little bit of expertise for hit as ITx6 is the least reliant on Expertise...though of course hit/expertise capped is preferable for a smoother rotation.
I don't use corruption or CoA because it seems to be a dps decrease. Instead I stick with Immolate as my only DoT on targets. And I push more dps because I am able to cast more incinerates.
I don't use a rotation, but rather a priority for dpsing.
Immolate, CB, Conflag, then Incinerate spam while keeping up Immolate, and use CB/Conflagon CD. I also keep up the Life Tap glyph buff so I get the 120+ SP.
And I mainly use CoD to not interrupt my casting.
With this method I have seen higher dps than with keeping up DoTs. But I would like to hear other people's opinion on this.
I just wanna make a comment on blood and AOE, I see your rotation and have tried it, I have also tried to do IT,PS,Pest,HS,BS. then DRW, at this time i pop into UH pres.(when available) then hit all HS's. its very fun, but its not up all the time, I have noticed using DRW with heart strikes is better, so I have been mixing it up a little to keep up with other AOE classes.
I know my DK's a little lower on gear, but I've been using that 44/0/27 build, and I really find that it's easy to push out and above 3k sometimes as high as 4k on fights, it does have quite a bit of AoE, so it makes Blood able to almost hang with Unholy or Frost.
When will you be updating the spreadsheet aldriana with the newer pieces of gear from many hardmodes. the trinket off 10 yogg and offhand from 10 general vezax are not listed. If you already have can u tell me where the link it. plz
