Afflic Warlock w/ Inconsistent DPS
I just went Warlock, and chose affliction as my spec. I enjoy it, but I'm confused. For some reason, my DPS is very inconsistent. When I was in BOT and in Blues, DI up on a Spriest, same rotation as I do now, I did about 15k DPS. I was on Nefarion last night, better gear, more hit, and I could barely pull 13k (DI up on same spriest). I have less crit on my gear (most is reforged to hit) but more Haste and I have a helm with a meta-gem now. I do worse DPS than I did in all blues!
However, miraculously, on one attempt on Nefarion I did 17.2k DPS (DI on same spriest). I was pulling a consistent 15-16k at low gear level and now I'm doing less in much better gear. I do basically the same rotation every time but for some reason it seems to hit harder than others. Is it the order in which I'm putting up my spells, or just the weirdness of my gear? I assume I should be doing a consistent 17k DPS yet I'm not. I have pockets of brilliance and I can't figure out how to stay consistent in that.
Curse of Elements > Haunt > Corruption > Bane of Doom > Unstable Affliction > Shadow Bolt
Shadow Bolt spam, keeping Haunt, UA, and BoD up. I pop my trinket and Demon Soul together whenever they are up. Switch to Drain Soul instead of Shadow Bolt at 25%.
Pet of Choice:
My gear is not great but I just got the toon to 85 like two weeks ago. Working on it :)
Armory is down; I'll link when it's back up. For now, I'm Victorie on US - Ysera.
