IV. Talents, Stats, and Minions
Edited by Harlk on 11/22/2010 5:41 PM PST
You want to generally Bane of Doom if the target will take 2 or more ticks of it, and BoA if the target will only take 1 BoD tick. I'm too lazy to go to EJ to check the exact priority, but it's between C and E on his list.
Run in and cast your instants:
coe>corruption>bane of doom
Find your spot and cast soulburn+soulfire for speed buff:
immolate>chaos bolt>conflag>spam incinerate
Keep your dots refreshed, cast chaos bolt and conflag as soon as they are off cd. Spam incinerate as your filler. If you want, toss in a shadow bolt after conflag for the +crit chance.
that's really about all there is too it, IMO the new talents have made destro much more fun to play
It's easier for me to think of it in groups.
dots, buffs and debuffs - keep these on the target or yourself at all times.
- Curse of Elements
- Immolate (this is the most important).
- Improved Soul Fire even if you have to hard cast Soul Fire to refresh it
- Bane of ___
doom for bosses
agony for trash
havoc for something that isn't your primary target
-Burning Embers, but you don't actually cast burning embers. It's a passive dot.
- Chaos Bolt - use on cooldown
- Conflagrate - use on cooldown
- Shadowburn - use on cooldown when it becomes available
- Incinerate - use when it procs as an instant cast or when there's nothing else to do.
For AoE fights, you have a few options depending on the situation.
For a few targets that won't die very quickly, put Bane of Havoc on the one that will probably die last. Put immolate on everything. Cast Shadowflame and Shadowfury if they're close together. Target the one that's supposed to die first, or one that doesn't have your Bane of Havoc, and use your single target rotation on it. Refresh Immolate on the other targets if they're alive long enough.
For targets that will die quickly, or for lots of targets close together, use shadowflame, shadowfury, and raid of fire. If this is a bunch of adds that spawn during a boss fight, put Bane of Havoc on the boss first. Be sure to replace it with Bane of Doom again when the adds are gone.
If the fight requires a lot of moving, refresh your instant cast dots while you run and use fel flame to keep immolate up on the target.
I recommend you spend time at the training dummies so you can practice keeping all of your dots and buffs up.
