Nsfwlolicon - Guide on how to warlock PvE

Post  Logged on Fri Oct 25, 2013 7:27 pm

We'll start with something simple, now I couldn't find a talent calculator that would allow me to edit the skill points. So because of this I'm going to be very detailed on the talents. It might be overwhelming, for that I apologize in advance.

As far as minors go it does not matter as much, just choose something you personally would like.


Best dual class for warlocks

Mage

Gives you molton armor which will increase your crit by 35% of your spirit. I currently have 9122 spirit which gives me 16.09 extra crit rating. Without that extra crit I sit at 69.81% crit, that is not including my Grand Firestone which will also give 1% more crit rating. Keeping in mind I stack crit gems to obtain a grand total of 86.88% crit rating. If you include the buff from the talent "Improved Shadow Bolt" which increases the crit from all spells, that puts my crit at 91.88%.

Mages also give Blink, Dragons Breath, and mirror images which can be used to drop threat. Keep in mind each of these spells will break metamorphosis form.


Paladin

Avenging Wrath is a 20% damage increase that has been confirmed to stack with metamorphosis form, which is also a 20% damage increase. The CD on Avenging Wrath is 3 mins long, and the CD on metamorphosis form is 2 mins. Meaning you can use these two in coordination with each other for a huge damage buff.

You will also get Hand of freedom, which has its uses in PvE if a boss slows, heal and dispel. Those two should be self explanatory.


Gems

Personally I was stacking crit to get as much as I possibly can, keep in mind that my warlock is mage dual class. After some review over gems there is a choice to either take 3% crit (Stacking crit yellows) or 700sp(stacking SP gems). As of right now I'm leaning towards the 700sp, since crit was just nerfed.

Meta - Chaotic Skyflare Diamond (21 crit rating and 3% increase crit damage)
Red - Runied Stormjewl (+23 Spell power)
Blue - Purified Dreadstone (12 Spell power and 10 spirit)

Enchant(s)

If more enchants get released I will update this section. As of right now there is only enchants for weapons though.

Weapon - Enchant weapon - Mighty Spell power (63 Spell power)
Along with Grand Firestone.


Rotation

1) Immolation
2) Conflagrate, will not affect GCD if used right after Immolation
3)Shadowbolt, will give you 5% more crit on all ability's for 20 seconds. Refresh every 18-19 seconds.
4)You have a choice here, either u can cast Corrution or apply Curse of Elements on this GCD.
5)Incinerate, then apply the one you did not choose to cast on this GCD.
6)Continue to spam Incinerate while managing your dots until the boss reaches 35%.
7)Once the bosses reaches 35% health you will recieve "Decimation" which will allow you to cast Soulfire at about a 1 second cast time, also Soulfire will not consume a soulshard. During this time continue to cast Soulfire in the place of
Incinerate. Keep in mind that you still need to manage dots, with an exception to corruption since its a weak ability as it is.


AOE

You can combine Metamorphsis form's Immolation aura with Rain of fire and pull a good amount of damage for AOE. Even in single target, when you pop meta form also apply Immolation Aura. Mine currently ticks for about 8.6k every .6 seconds for a total of 9 seconds.

What pet should you use?

Always use the Imp. This pet gives a % bonus to Fire Dmg.



Keep in mind I would love to read what other people suggest. Everyone is entiled to their own opinion and I encourage anyone to post their thoughts about warlocks on this page. If you find something that I have overlooked or might have made a mistake on, by all means I beg you to post your thoughts. Thanks for reading the guide - see you guys in game!

UPDATE: Since Jpeg has joined the guild and has been raiding with us, I've been able to see his dps with his spec. His build is more desto then demo, and he tends to pull ahead of me in DPS by a couple thousand on most fights. The build that I run is too increase the raids spell power (Demonic Pact). Our builds although different, Synergize quite well with each other.

Although I am not apart of your guild would it be possible for outside players to post their opinions here as well?

Absolutely, I'm just waiting until the nerf happens to being working on it. Which I talked to crick today about how to nerf warlocks, and based on the conclusion warlocks should be equal now. I'm not sure if I was suppose to say that but I don't see any harm in it since it will be posted in the news soon anyway XD. On a side note I'm not really sure if this topic will take place in here. It might be better to place it in class discussion since that would make more sense.

Warriors are only entirely broken on fights with cleave...Like the tree in AC. And plus, with the way armor is I can go from doing 50k bloodthirsts on hooch to 15k on avenger. Sad

I like everything except the build, I'm currently running 0/38/53
I find my build doesn't have that huge burst yours does with wings and demo form, but it rolls a constant DPS.
For short fights I would prefer your build, but if you're looking to break 40k and touch 50k you're going to need a little more than burst every 2 minutes.

just my thoughts.

I tend to break 55k dps on that build stay at 48k-50k. I'd like to see your build though. But that would require you to play again XDD

This guide is absolutely amazing. Warlocks are extremely strong and pull ridiculous damage, and this guide shows exactly how to pull it off. I've noticed there's some debate going on about how there are more "consistent" damage builds which is great. However, in a guild run the current T2 bosses were dropping to nothing in less than 2 minutes...some even about a minute. I realize that technically Metamorphosis is a cooldown, when that cooldown lasts half a bosses fight, idk any sort of consistent damage build would be likely to work. This build is tried and tested, and Nsfw has proven his ability to stomp damage meters on several occasions and have seen him pull upwards of 80k on some fights.
