Destro in MoP is still not viable

man do i miss the days of wrath when it was.

issues:

* 1 less dot, now that immolate replaces corruption (cant cast all day)

* Ember build up is way too slow

*chaosbolts 4second cast is over the top. it even lost its absorption affect.

the spec is just lacking something, but i cant put my finger on it.

You don't even understand what the word viable means.

should've stated PVP (arenas). couldnt care less about PVE as thats nothing but adjusting a few numbers/tweak on certain spells & poof more dps. PVP is mechanics and destro just doesnt have it.

And for those that say "beta" many people said during the cata beta that destro wasnt going to work in the new model & here we're at the end of the expansion and its still awful compared to aff. Blizz is already on record saying that once the expansion is released they hardly do significant improvements to the class and let it stay broken (ala enhance/hunters/etc) till a new expansion.

Destruction is the PvP power house beast mode spec in MoP currently:

Yes, Destro, like ANY caster that's left alone to freecast, does a ton of damage. Now bring that to competitive play and try to figure out how many CB's will actually get off. The short answer is not many.

Good thing you'll only need to get one, *maybe* two off to decide a match by the looks of it.

Having an "interrupt this or you're dead" spell as part of your arsenal not a bad thing.


What the Mage said. :)

Oh and here is some Destro 1 vs 2 Beta Arena footage. Looking sick! :D

Pretty sure the title says "MoP", not current tier pvp or pve.

Can you offer any ideas to improve destro for arenas? im not too worried about aff. im sure that will come around eventually. its just that blizz has decided 1 viable dps spec for the 3 out of the 4 pures (aff/frost/sub) in cata and thats makes the class pretty boring when all you got is aff for 2years.

@Leeton:

Similar videos were available for destro during Cata beta, right before the spec got nerfed across the board. Just the last couple patches has seen some damaged nerfs to destro already.

Numbers are easy to adjust, its the mechanics though that will make or break a spec more.

You really think that's a good idea?

Thinking fondly back to Desto Locks back in WoTLK, I'll have to go with... Yes! :D
