In MoP, I decided to go a different route than that of a Shadow Priest, and warlock has been a class I wanted to play. So I leveled my lock pretty hard and now raiding with him.
I have the basics and some advanced tactics pretty down packed and was pretty shocked on the numbers I put up in the raid, which was only Elegon attempts, last night but I have some questions I need to ask the experienced warlock community!
Mana becomes an issue after a while and Life Tap needs to be used, correct? Making sure I'm not doing something wrong, I never had mana issues as SPriest.
Also, I have been reading everywhere that Haunt should only be cast when DoTs have 8 seconds or longer? Why is this? I have been doing it, I just need to know why.
Another Haunt question: do I need to recast my DoTs if haunt has not been on my target (due to lack of shards and no nightfall help), because of the buff it puts on the target?
Multi Target fights (like 1st and last bosses in MSV), what is a good strategy on these types of bosses? I have heard not to haunt and focus my shards on SSing my dots to keep them up on both targets.
What addons can you guys not live without as warlocks?
I also need a good, customizable, multiple target DoT tracker, which is ideal?
Any other raid tips or tricks?
Thank you all for any input to help a rook lock out!
