Help with Warlock BuildFollow

#1 May 09 2011 at 10:38 PM Rating: Decent
I've been having some difficulty with dishing out damage with my Warlock, and I believe it to be my spec and rotation (or I just suck). I never have trouble with soloing, but I am sucking with Dungeons. Any recommendations?
Also, if anyone knows a good PvE spec, I'd appreciate it.

Well I'll leave this here for starters. It's end-game driven, but much of it will still be relevant as you have many of the end-game spells already. Most of this information came directly from there. Some things it lists:


Shadow Bolt (cast once at the beginning of a fight for the buff - you'll want 3 points in Shadow and Flame, a Destruction talent) -> Haunt -> Bane of Doom -> Corruption -> Unstable Affliction -> Shadow Bolt/Drain Life Filler


Prime Glyphs:

[Glyph of Corruption]
[Glyph of Unstable Affliction]
[Glyph of Haunt]

Major Glyphs:

[Glyph of Life Tap]
[Glyph of Shadow Bolt] - Unless using Drain Life filler
[Glyph of Soul Swap]



Much of the rest of any advice I'd give is 'knowing your class' related.

For example are you using AoE and single-target spells at the appropriate time? Are you continuing to DPS when you have to move during a fight? Are you deviating from the above rotation when the target isn't going to live very long? (No use dotting up a target that dies fast). Do you have good up-time on your DoTs during longer fights? (You don't want them falling off but you don't want to refresh them too early either). Which pet are you using?

I should also add the disclaimer that I've primarily played Destruction. Smiley: grin
