As I am sure you are aware (because you read this blog and I made a post as it happened) Shadow Rising downed Sindragosa. It really was an epic fight and I am so honored that I got to be a part of it.
After we downed the bitch we went to pay a visit to the good ol’ Lich King himself.
He didn’t give me any of those. It made me sad.
What did he give me?
Necrotic plague. The fucker.
Remember kids, STD tests are a GOOD thing.
Today is Soth’s birthday! He is one step closer to being an old man. ;-) HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!
I hope he likes the present I got for him.
I mean, umm yeah, I got him a gift card.
In other news, I might have to shed some Warlock tears. No I am not talking about the sweet delicious QQ tears that mages look forward to, but the tears of a die hard affliction warlock becoming *gasp* DESTRUCTION!
*bursts into fulsome sobs*
It was made very clear that the Sindragosa fight hates affliction warlocks. When I get the stupid instability debuff (which I swear I get every time it comes up) it is always when I have to refresh everything. That means I get up to 6 stacks just from refreshing my DoTs. No Shadow Bolt spam. If Sindy is being a particularly evil bitch she will suck us all in and I will get another stack by using my teleport. BTW if you are a warlock doing that fight and not using your demonic teleport then you are a fucking retard. USE IT!!! I get to start dps back up while everyone else is running for their lives. It is a beautiful thing.
I don’t know the first thing about the other warlock specs. I mean I know that there are slight gear differences. For example, affliction loves haste, destruction loves crit (wannabe mages). I would think that I would need to change my gear around to be able to switch effectively.
The biggest hurdle would be to actually figure out what the hell a destro lock does. I know they supposedly have a “tough” rotation just like affliction, but I don’t have a clue as to what it is.
Now before anyone gets their panties in a twist, I am not being asked to change. My GM and my RL both told me I don’t have to change my spec if I don’t want to. It is completely up to me if I switch. The problem is I know Tir (my RL) is right in that affliction is horrible for that fight. I need burst dps. I think he said that destro was doing like 14% or something better than affliction. Even demo was doing like 7% or something better. So I could “technically” go demo, but if I am going to switch to the max dps spec for the fight, I am going to go full tilt.
So any warlocks that read this, a little help please?
Since I am leaving tomorrow morning at the butt crack of dawn and won’t be home until Monday around midnight, you will have two lovely filler picture posts. I don’t know how much internet availablity I will have so I might not reply right away to comments. Please leave them though! I will reply as soon as I am able.
