Is it Time to Drop Destro?
Destruction was great, until raiding Magmaw. Then I didn't have enough AOE damage to kill the worms. Along comes Demonology. I have pretty much played demo until recently. The other night, I pug a troll dungeon with guildies and we land another warlock, he's also running Demo. So, for kicks, I flipped back to Destro. He's new to the spec, so let him have fun.
Along the way, he asks if he can make a comment. Sure, I am thinking, I am a blogger, this could mean a post! He had some good points. Take points out of Demonic Aegis and feed into Empowered Imp. Put points into Dark Arts, etc.. Looking at my talents, they made sense. What was wowpopular, wasn't any longer. Yesterday, I grabbed the 1/7/33 spec and applied it to my talents. (BTW, I love the macro 'use in game' they have. Very nice!)
Today, reading through the class feedback, it looks like destro is no longer the favorite. Common thread items are similar Donsinn's comment:
What’s on your wish list for your class?This makes sense. Even being in a slightly off optimal talent spec, I was doing a good 6-10k dps less than Muju. I ended up switching back to Demo form for that last fight. After we were both demo, we then had enough focused DPS to take out all the adds and finish the fight (yeah, first time clearing ZG and it's with Pally tank, Pally heals, warlock * 2 for DPS + a mage).
Fix the damage coefficients for destro. CB / SF hit like wet noodles.
So... Is it time to go back to Elk's roots? Drop my Destro spec for the more popular affliction spec? This 32/3/6 spec looks vaguely similar to what I ran way back then.. On the other hand, I did love using drain life on those healers in PVP..
Something to consider..
