Destro Spell Rotation
Return to board index
I have 1345 spell power buffed and im getting around 900 dps. Im wondering what you guys spell rotation is for your destro lock and about what dps your running? Thanks
I'm pretty sure there are a bunch of recent treads about destro locks floating around. Why don't you check out one of them?
I have read about peoples spec but i havent seen a good rotation thread. Sorry.
the thing i have noticed about fire locks is that our burst damage is off the hook but our sustained damage isnt so great. Now that might have something to so with my rotation which is Chaos bolt->immolate->incenerate->conflagulate (the one you use when immolate is about finished)->sb->rinse and repeat. But that is my rotation.
CoEle > Corr > CB > Imo > Inc untill imo is out > conflag > refresh corr > CB then just back into the immolate> incinerate rotation keeping up corruption for the extra molten core proc, using chaos bolt during the 30% haste from backdraft.
That rotation specc'd 0/7/54 taking all fire talents with about 1450 fire damage and 35% crit raid buffed usually does 1600+ dps on boss fights.
Oh, take imp imp and let him just blast away the whole time too.
after a lot of testing i've got to say that the top tiered destro talents are full of
i get consistently higher DPS with a 0/21/40 build and a CoA + Corr + immo and incinerate spam rotation (this assumes you have a boomkin in the raid covering the CoE)
chaos bolt is good DPCT but a spell that's got slightly higher DPCT than incinerate once every 12 seconds does not make a good 51point talent.
i loved the idea of having a pet that actually does some damage and not having to kill it but it's just not good enough.
it may be worth mentioning that the way i did manage to get some good dps with a full destro build was conflag > soul fire x 3 - eats shards but high damage.
nom nom nom.
Soul fire is worth it if it crits, but if it doesn't crit it's still pretty lackluster. After your dots/curses are in place, I'm doing chaos bolt, conflag, imo, incin, incin. After backdraft has faded I generally life tap, reapply corruption and curse, and incin until chaos bolt are up again to do my rotation again. Mostly best in slot gear doing around 2600 on a tank and spank boss. On trash I'm usually lazy and just do the old Immolate -> incinerate throwing in chaos bolt when it's up. Spec is 2/3/51 with my leftover points where I like them essentially so my curse is agony.
I did something totally crazy... I didn't get chaos bolt. I know, I know, I'm crazy right? Not so much. I did have chaos bolt at first, but found a way to improve my dps greatly. I put 13 points into demonology so my fel armor is back up to 130 bonus damage instead of 100. I always have my imp out, I have the destro empowered imp talent as well as the demo improved imp. (He does mad dps.) Next, everything into fire points, only one point is in soul leech to be able to hit the next tier, last 2 points are in fire&brimstone. Molten Core procs off of any shadow damage, which means every tic of CoA. So... CoA>Immolate>Incinerate(spam)>Conflagrate>Immolate.... CoA whenever it needs a refresh. I get a lot of procs on Molten Core and the Backdraft is awesome for 3 casts as well, and don't forget Backdraft for those times you do take damage and get an instant cast. I'm on par with my previous dps and the only gear I changed was getting out my Timbal's Focus Crystal since I'm using DoTs again and a few hit gems for crit gems. It's a lot harder than it used to be, but spamming shadow bolt did get rather boring.
Well my rotation is CoE, Imolation, corruption, incinerate, until imolation almost over , i got backdraft now, so I chaos bolt inceneratex2 repeat and using any backdraft that comes along the way. If my glyph of corruption proc i cast that instant shadow bolt.
i have 1198 spldmg and 0/14/47 specced and i squeez out 1200-1300 dps.
Im fire pvp built, and i use (asuming there is someone else in the raid pref boomkin with 13% more dmg) Immo,Cor,Inci,CoA, inci(couple of times) Conf, immo then refresh corr and coa when apropriet.
I also have Glyph of corr so always have that up and use SB when you get nighfall (DOOOOOOHHHH!)
My lock is an alt, has about 1100 spll power buffed, but i bring him in mh or bt when we're low on caster dps. This is a build i use, that i copied from another one of our locks.
The rotation he/I uses is:
Using this he's usually in the 15-1800dps range and I usually come out at about 1k-1250
