Crazy talk

Patch 3.0.8 is rounding up. It looks like mostly good things for most everyone. So far I’ve seen some warlocks -rave- about the change to warlock summons. I’m kinda meh about it. This morning they posted some updated notes.. and there’s something funny going on there.

Molten Core vs ISB (the “feels” arguement)

This is the “feels” arguement. There will be no math involved in this comparison. Check out EJ. I’m sure they have math. *curse* *stomp* *rant* EJ says: OH my (note the snooty little voice here) if your crit percent is low(ie 10% or less) you really benefit more from Molten Core than from Improved Shadow Bolt. Yabut.. grrrr. Is it…

Haste and the Warlock

I’ve been feeling kind of ambivalent about haste (and by extension, Eradication). General knowledge says: “Haste good. More haste, more good.” In general I agree.. but in the specific case of the Affliction warlock I’m still hesitant. -IF- I’m chain casting haste-able spells then haste is the bomb. It lets me get one-more-spell into the “normal” cast time for the…

Spellstones and macros

So, I have this macro: /use Grand Spellstone /cast [button:2] Create Spellstone It’s a fairly simple macro. If I left click it, it uses the spellstone in my inventory and applies the “enchant” to my weapon. If I don’t have a spellstone, I right-click the button to create a spellstone. It’s a tidy little macro. At least it was.

Whar’s ma DPS? (Part IV)

{Epic voice over} Follow the heart wrenching ongoing struggles of a Warlock on her epic quest to not suck. *sigh* Yes, I’m here again. Ok, I’m 80 and I’m starting to collect my pre-Naxx gear. I’m making good progress. I think I only need 2-3 more pieces to be ready for Naxx-10 (which is scheduled for Tuesday). I’m running Heroics..…

Puzzle me this…

Situation: Running Heroic Utgarde Keep (my first 80 heroic). Highest boss level is 80 (I checked the boss kill screenshots). I am level 80. I have 159 spell hit rating. Screenshot shows that 159 hit rating increases my chance to hit a level 80 by 6.06% I’m also spec’d 1/3 into Suppression.. so I have an additional 1% for my…

Tapping in protest

Leveling is going well.. I should hit 80 sometime this week (maybe as soon as tonight.. but I wouldn’t hold my breath). (Reposting pic because it still makes me laugh) I got a new rank of Life Tap… and I’m finding that occasionally.. when I tap.. right afterwards I gulp in surprise about how much life is gone. It’s no…

Affliction scribbles: Minor rotation note

Very quick note.. I’m currently spec’d hybrid Siphon Life/Felguard.. but I miss my true affliction roots. I stumbled upon a little tidbit. Things of note.. only lasts 12 seconds.. so you can’t use haunt to easily get two stack. If you’re 5/5 then a two stack adds 10% damage to your dots.. and reduces hots on the target by 30%.…

Warlock pre-Naxx Gear

I have made my first cut of a pre-Naxx gear set. Oddly, it doesn’t look too hard to acquire. Most of my pieces are pretty good already. I just need to fiddle a few pieces into place.

If I had twitter I’d write: Goto http://www.leulier.com/ for lock dps spreadsheet. Best warlock mathifications ever! I’ve been listening “Push my Follow” and other BA bloggers who use Twitter.. and I feel like I’m being a late adopter.. and like I should have gotten on twitter a long time ago.. but really, I don’t -get- it. Why do I need…
