Title: Warlock specs
Post by: Exolutionn on August 12, 2018, 11:04:51 am
Does anyone have a good warlock spec?

One for pre-raid BiS? And then one for a better geared character?

SM/Ruin (https://classicdb.ch/?talent#IEhbbRroVZZgx0tM0z) spec is a good start. It gives you the ability to keep Blood Pact up and it utilizes the Nightfall spec to increase your dps when you have one or more corruptions up. The downside is that it suffers when there are no available debuff slots.

DS/Ruin  (https://classicdb.ch/?talent#Ii0bZbxVzg0oZgx0tM0z) is used when you have reached around 500 spellpower. I don't know all the theory crafting behind it but that is what I remember. The good things with this spec is that your dps is more stable and it doesn't suffer too hard when not being able to use Corruption. The downside is that you can't have an active demon.

There are alot of useless or almost useless talents you have to take, you can ofcourse switch those around as you see fit. For example: You only need as many points in Supression to become hitcapped with your curses (with 12% hit on gear you only need 2 points in Supression)

It works fine for me, what's the actual problem?

If you can't use the links i'll give you a list of the important talents:
SM/Ruin
Supression+Imp. Corruption
Imp. Life Tap
Amplify C.
Grim Reach+Nightfall
Shadow Mastery

DS/Ruin
Demonic Embrace
Master Summoner
Demonic Sacrifice

Destruction tree looks the same whatever spec you have:
Imp. Shadow Bolt
Bane
Shadowburn
Destructive Reach
Ruin

Imo warlock talent trea is the perfect example of how unbalanced this game is, and why I love it
