ACK! DESTRO TURNED ME INTO AN AGGRO MONKEY!
I carefully saved all my badges for a month, did all my research on which gems and gear are best for starting out, hoped for good drops to help round it out (which never happened, lol) and lived on Chardev playing my character like a barbie doll swapping out outfits and mixing and matching gems and enchants.
Finally i was at a point where, give or take a few stats, i could conceivably, possibly, maybe be the uber DPS machine that i wanted to be. SO i made the plunge and what did i learn?….
AGGRO COMES TO THOSE WHO DON’T WAIT -.-
The playstyle of destruction is much much different then affliction.
- I don’t have my nice slow to aggro DoT cushion
- I don’t have my instant howl of terror /cry
- I don’t have my IMP!
What does this all mean you ask?!!
It means i have to make major changes in the way i approach my class. Mana is now and issue to be dealt with – tapping will be a must. How often and when will be something i’ll try to feel out.
I had to think about how to rewrite my trinket macros since i’m not using dots anymore and they were all bound to those. My solution was to go ahead and throw Immolate into my spell rotation strictly for popping my 2min CD trinket. It probably isn’t going to add much of a damage boost but at least i won’t have to think about popping my trinket so much.
I require a lot more shards since sacking succy is sucking up all my shards.
And the big one is the aggro i now generate is insane. Big revelation on that…good things come to those who wait. Also i’m using a lot of soulshatter which was successful for not killing me exactly once last night :P (another shard sucker)
so recap, less mana, more shards, more attention to aggro meter = Super Uber Psy…errr… :P
love you guys,
