Affliction Rotation 3.0.2 Scribbles

[Edited: Ok.. so on the commute home it occured to me that the following is somewhat crap. I had a minor brain fart and this won't keep haunt up all the time. Expect something better in the next few posts.]

Noodling a cast sequence. These are probably “boss fight” sequences.. as trash dies too quickly to warrant a decent DoT rotation.

Givens:
Corruption instant cast (gcd), 18 second duration (unless refreshed by Haunt or Drain Life)
Curse of Agony instant cast (gcd), 24 second duration
Siphon Life instant cast (gcd), 30 second duration

Haunt 1.5 second cast, 8 sec cooldown, 12 second duration
Unstable Affliction 1.5 second cast, 15 second duration
Immolate 1.5 second cast, 15 second duration

Last night.. there was no cheer.

I’m glad that Wrath is coming in a month. Because if we [...]

See the official forum post for more information about “random mounts” (ie, the answer is long.. they said it well.. and i’m not going to repeat it.. except to say that the addon “livestock” looks like a very [...]

Behold our MIGHT!

MIGHTBam! The patch is here.. we’re half Wrath-ified. and ZOMG! We are so OP.

Last night West Kingdom formed up for Gruul’s.. to test it out. We started out tentatively. The first brute died.. brutally. The second, someone pulled aggro.. and we still totally blasted him.

We smashed High King Maulgar and crew.. even though the mage tank died.

We killed Gruul at grow 5. FIVE!!! Seriously. Before the patch we were usually in the 12-16 range for grows.

NWO: Warlocks in 3.0.2

FelHunter

Assumption #1: I’m totally making this stuff up.. I haven’t tested it yet.. I’m figuring it out while I’m at work so I can have a jump when I get home.

Assumption #2: I’m assuming that all the talents will be in the game after I get home and get to try out 3.0.2. This isn’t necessarily true given that it seems that the patch doesn’t contain everything that was expected.

Assumption #3: I totally love Affliction. So I’m not even considering a deep build in anything else. I just like the play style.

Assumption #4: My Fel Puppy just became my new best friend.
