DPS issues in Affliction specc
So I've been Affliction with my warlock for...well, probably about 76, 77. I'm geared close to, if not at, hit-cap for my spells, got Glyph of Life Tap, DoTimer, etc. All that good stuff.
Now, I'm fine on multi-target fights as long as it takes more than two seconds to kill something. the bigger the group, the better I can handle it with Seed of Corruption. (I've gotten close to almost 10k DPS on those pulls on the hill in Pit of Saron and some other places.)
My big problem, is single target fights like boss fights. Last Vault I did, I was able to hit about 3.5k with uninterrupted casting time and things popping off like they should. But we all know Lightweave doesn't always proc, and the trinket doesn't always proc either.
However from what I'm hearing and seeing, we're looking at between 5 and 6k to be in ICC. So my question is: what am I doing wrong, here?
aaand you can probably wow-heroes me if you want as I can't seem to get a link for that.
Usually my rotation is something along the lines of...
Haunt->Unstable Affliction->Curse of Agony->Corruption->Shadowbolt filler
Now, I have moved Curse of Elements to my bar since it does seem to make a bit of a difference, however with the 'one Curse per Warlock' thing, I'm missing out on CoA. Should I really be sacrificing that?
I do know that I need a new trinket, and not all of the stuff is of the best ilevel, but I'm working with what I've got and learning as I go since I don't really have anyone I can ask in terms of what's better, etc.
Also, before anyone says it, no, I'm not going Destro. I've toyed with it before, and it just produces sub-par numbers for me. Just don't work, just doesn't feel right, so no. nothing doing on that front.
I've seen other Affliction locks top the charts doing 5,6,7k. what am I missing? Any advice at all would be appreciated.
