A snapshot is taken of your current stats and applied to the guardian when summoned, this is used as the base for them. They also receive all buffs that are available when summoned, so this would include Heroism / Bloodlust if active.
So, if the guardian has been summoned after Bloodlust is used, it will still be applied? Also, which of the two guardians does the most dps? Does this differ between the specs?
Just wanted to drop a note here; I'm going to take a break from World of Warcraft fot a while. I'll probably be back, and it's not a matter of dissatisfaction with the game or anything like that; merely that I haven't felt like actually playing the game in about 2 months or so. Theorycrafting is still fun, and i'll probably keep checking EJ and some other wow related websites.
If anyone wants to update this guide or the old demonology guide, feel free.
The mind is like a parachute. It works best when it's open.
Given that Imp Soul Fire has a 15 second cooldown matching its 15 second duration it seems that we should:
1. If possible due to the durations save Emp Imp procs till Imp SF is less than travel time from expiring.
2. Time hard cast SFs to begin during the expiring Imp SF buff but land after expiration.
My question is about number 2. I actually got better results from letting the buff expire if its end coincided with refreshing dots or conflaging and casting hardcast SFs only when I would be casting an incinerate. I am tentatively assuming this is accurate and reflects our priority list but was hoping someone with better math/theorycrafting skills could discuss it. I am particularly interested in the increased cast time from starting my hardcast after the haste buff has expired and how that fits into this calculation
