This is my first post on this forum, and i would like to share with you some experience and maths.
Glyph: corruption - Improved imp
if i do a good rotation and don't loose timer... the dps is very good.
empowered imp proc very often (with Demonic power, it cast fireball every 2 sec... about 450-500 for any hit).
Casting Corruption (and if any other lock cast CoE or there's a moonkin in raid ... you cast agony) for proc Molten core (another 10% fire damage).
if i can cast CoA and corruption , the molten core proc is still always up.
cast chaos bolt every time you can... is the best dps spell for a destro lock, now. (imho).
conflagrate with backdraft help a lot in trash mobs but is a must on boss (if you can do right rotation).
i have made an equip for this spec with proc (the two trinket with proc on crit and 10% haste rating...)... grant me a very good dps (best then pre patch) if i do all right.
my current rotation on boss is: (Curse of Agony or CoE)... corruption... chaos bolt...immolate... incinerate x X (depends my latency ), conflagrate (in raid this spell have a crit chance > hit chance with fire and Brimestone), incinerate, chaos bolt, incinerate and repeat.
naturally i cast Sb when nightfall proc (from glyphs) and i take a look to the cd of ChaosBolt for cast it every time i can.
For Aoe fight... shadowfury and RoF is very good.
First cast shadowfury (that proc Moltencore) and 2 channeled RoF (hit for about 1k, crit for 2).
base on wws i put some numbers...
(my stats is about 1160 damage , 30% crit, and 10% haste...all selfbuffed - not very good gear ).
Corruption : Avg Tick: about 400 (corr must be up as much time you can to proc Mc)
Immolate Initial damage: Hit 1046 - Crit: 2221 /// Tick about 490 (good dps for a 1,5 sec - haste )
Incinerate: avg hit 2400- crit 4800
Chaos Bolt: avg hit 2600 - crit 5200. with 2 sec cast (with no haste) it's a very good dps (i think is the best dps spell for a destro lock)
Confla (yes, i know, i lost a tick of immolate, but is a very good dps for a spell that have only Gcd and proc Backdraft) : Avg hit 1600- crit 3100
sb (when glyph proc)... 2300 and 4200 crit. (it's not bad if consider that is affected only by gcd and can help to proc mc).
My last comment on this spec it's: "this is a funny spec... more and more then old 0/21/40... and with same equip (i know, now there are many buff in raid) i do more dps and damage than before".
This is a raid boss spec . heroics don't math... mobs blow up too fast... and sometimes, raid trash too....
Sometimes i think to change the cast after backdraft. After chaos bolt i use incinerate x 2 (if any immolate of other lock are up, is a good choise, if not .. i can try Shadowbolt or if i have many shard... soul fire).
what do you think about?
