Going warlock for the guild needs
Switching to warlock, need good resources for theorycrafting kind of depth learning about the class/specs/rotation/gearing/etc.
I have been a tank for a long time now. So long, I was burning out on it. DS was a nice break for me since there were a fair number of single tank fights in 10 man which let me dps a bit and break the monotony. Now, the guild is having some real issues with maintaining our raid team.
Long story short, we need ranged and heals more than anything and mostly ranged. The GM is a hunter and we already replaced one mage with another. I could have leveled any of the ranged, but based on our current makeup, warlock made the most sense. I never really liked my warlock much but I had not even logged onto it since the pre-patch and didn't know how different it might be. Turns out, I like most of the changes. This will probably be my main for the foreseeable future.
What I really need is a good resource for learning the ins and outs of this new class. If I am going to call it my "main" I would like to understand it as well as I have my pally. Unfortunately, the only places I've found info that really seems current on warlocks are sites I usually only half trust at best; mmo-c, icy-veins and noxxic. Warlock's Den is one I have heard of but when I checked out the site recently, most of the info was from Cata or Wrath.
I am currently spec'ed affliction and destruction. When I leveled the toon to 80 in Wrath and to 85 in Cata, I enjoyed affliction the most. Affliction is still ok but with the changes, I am enjoying Destruction the most. I ding'ed 90 on Sunday and just before logging, reached 460 iLvl so I can try LFR tonight.
For whatever reasons, destruction is higher dps for me at the moment. Since I have had less than 8 hours at 90, I haven't reforged any of my gear or anything so maybe this is just that the gear I've managed to acquire is itemized better for the spec. Maybe this is just because Destro is better at low gear levels. I really don't know and that is why I want a resource where I can learn more about the class at that kind of depth. Also, I have questions about the rotations beyond the basics, and that kind of thing.
If anyone can recommend good places for me to check, I'd really appreciate it. Thanks.
Our makeup if anyone actually cared:
For that last spot, shaman or warlock seemed the best choice.
