Hi, new to lock and thought your guides were excellent. Just wondering what situation would call for a Bane Demo spec(0/31/10) over the corruption spec(3/31/7)?

3/31/7 is for pure single target fights, like Ultraxion (Morchok with no mutli dotting, Ultraxion, Zon'ozz if you dont do much damage on eyes)

Hi again... sparkuggz
i try spine and have a new problem
we kill a Hideous Amalgamation with 15% debuff and i stay with CD on Demon Form ~13sec on Burning Tendons.
in destro i make low dps with BoW(
my team does not want wait my CD because they fear damage from Corrupted Blood
I do not know what I should do
16th April 2012, 22:50
in destro max damage what i can do is 600,000. i really dont have idea

Oh well... 1 of my guild mates (lock) manages to do a nice burst as affli. You can do this by soul swapping full curses to the tendon and that will give u a high damage done. However, demonology still owns in that fight. But i'll let sparko answer that question for you =P

No point to go destruction, it's really bad. Affliction can do okayish, at this point with 15% it really doesn't matter that much.

Hello Sparkuggz, I want to thank you for your investment in the warlock community ;)
I play destruction and I use Insigna (410) and WoU (403) for trinkets. I obtained not long ago the Cunning (410), and after some simulations, it turns out that the Cunning & Insigna give me more dps.
Personnaly I think that I should use these both only on aoe fights, and WoU and Insigna on mono.
What do you think ?

I never bothered to investigate it, as we have no cunnings dropping. Per say on the BIS list with Simcrafts setup, they do say IOTCM + WoU. But since yours is 403 ilvl version, i assume that Cunning might outdo it, even for destruction. I think i've seen 10 different lists of BIS trinkets for warlocks for each spec, some saying this some saying that.

By how much DPS does it tell you HC Cunning is versus WoU 403? I guess HC cunning could outdo 403 WoU even for destruction on a single target fight.
AOE wise, you never get around cunning, it's just simple sometimes your 2nd-4th highest damage spell, and often times it outdoes your AOE spell itself. No point to bother with any multi dot / aoe fights without it :D

Thanks for the answer.
With Simcraft, IOTCM + CoC give me 400 more dps. So I think i'm gonna use these both since I drop the HC WoU :)
