Warlock Rotation in MoP

Postby Ksjones on Tue Jul 03, 2012 1:53 pm

I was wondering if any of the warlocks had found a viable rotation for Affliction and/ or Demonology, i have played around with them both, and looked up rotations, but could not find a lot on it. Thanks!

Would love a viable rotation for demonology if shaddows or shinifae can give one for MoP (:

Right now Affliction is bugged on Beta such that Nightfall does not generate Soul Shards. Because of this, it is difficult to get a feel for what a typical Affliction "rotation" will play like at this time. It is still very important, if not more so, to manage procs and cooldowns properly for this spec. We no longer let Agony fall off before reapplying ; in fact, to do so is a significant DPS loss.

I am going to be looking in to Demonology more closely in the coming weeks of raid testing.


I'm generally going to refrain from answering questions about spec optimisation until we are much closer to launch. There is an optimal way to play each spec currently, but it's not something that I'd worry about much because it will change significantly prior to MoP release. Look for some bug fixes and scaling adjustments in the next few Beta builds.

Hi nightcharm,

I did the following trials in Affliction on beta for development purposes, mainly to find a few bugs still present in our class mechanics at this time. However, you can look over them if you like and see if you can glean anything useful.

Nonbuffed target dummy with CoE trials, 423 ilvl.
