Demonology Warlock Guide 3.3.5

Post by bluelyon on Sat 21 Apr 2012 - 18:21

A demonology warlock's damage is based on shadow and fire damage, depending of the target HP.
Shadow Bolt and Soul Fire(below 35%) are the main spells for a demo warlock makeing the biggest damage, but don't forgot to use your dots too.

We will start the guide with the stats that you need to pay attention. First of all, like all other classes, you need to cap the hit rating, then the next stats that you need to focus are spell power, haste, critical strike and spirit. With other word the importance of them is something like this: Hit > Spellpower > Haste >Spirit > Crit


Casters need 26.2 hit rating for 1% of plus hit.We have a 17% chance to miss against raid bosses, therefore to achieve a 100% hit chance we need 446 hit rating. This is the hard cap. The majority of players won’t need to stack anywhere near the 446 hard cap, as spells and abilities modify how much +hit you need.

You get a 1% buff from the Drainei Racial (only party wide, this is NOT a raid wide buff).
You get a 3% debuff either from spriest misery, or boomkin faerie fire (these do NOT stack).
You get +3% from talents (although you may drop the talents as you get the hit rating on gear).

So the “soft cap” for raiding locks with all available buffs are:
Only Drainei.................................................420
Only Shadowpriest/Boomkin/Suppression...........367
Drainei+Talents(Suppression)..........................342
Drainei+Talents+Shadowpriest/Boomkin.............263

Usefull Sockets:
Meta Socket:Chaotic Skyflare Diamond  is the best meta gem for warlocks.
Red Sockets: Reds should always be filled withRuned Cardinal.
Yellow Sockets: Yellow sockets should actually be filled with orange gems. The best for it is Reckless Ametrine, but if u have problems with hit  rating you can use Veiled Ametrine.
Blue Sockets: Blues should actually be filled with purple gems and the best for this color is Purified Dreadstone.

Glyphs:
Major glyphs:  

Minor glyphs:
The only minor glyph usefull in raids is the Glyph of Drain Soul.

Enchants:
Head:Arcanum of Burning Mysteries
Shoulders:Greater Inscription of Discipline
Back: Greater Speed (or Lightweave Embroidery if you have tailoring)
Chest: Powerful Stats
Bracers: Superior Spellpower
Gloves: Exceptional Spellpower
Belt: Eternal Belt Buckle (socketed with Runed Cardinal Ruby)
Legs: Brilliant Spellthread
Feet: IcewalkerIcewalker
Rings (only if your are an enchanter): Greater Spellpower
Main Hand: Mighty Spellpower
Staff: Greater Spellpower

Talents:
Demonology - 1/53/17


Rotation:
1.Curse of Elements
2.Metamorphosis
3.Imolate
4.Corruption
5.Imolation Aura(this spell can be casted only with Metamorphosis)
5.Spam Shadow Bolt
6.Use 3 Incinerate when Molten Core procs.
7.Refresh Imolate and Corruption every time they fade, but don't clip them.(look on Affliction guide)
8.When target is under 35% you will start use Soul Fire (even when Molten Core procs) and repet step 7.

When there are a lot of mobs, use Seed of Corruption, is the best AOE.
To maximize the dps, your pet must allways attack the boss and for that you can use this macro to put him attack when you are useing Shadow Bolt. You can use other spell insted of Shadow bolt, is your choice.
The best pet for Demonology is the Imp.
