Ok let’s take a look at the Warlock T9 Set Bonuses
Since about 2,000 of my blog views lately have been from the images of my randomly random rant about how bad the T9 LOOKS and provides nothing really constructive, I shall attempt to be well..constructive!
For full details of the stats that this set provides, please check out wowhead, for full stats.
The first thing we notice is that this set only provides 64 Haste, which comes from the Pants. As a Demonology Warlock, for our personal DPS, haste is preferred so this set is kind of “meh”. Even having played Destruction for most of the T9 era, I found to be quite lacking in haste, and my nukes felt sluggish.
Let’s take a look at the Tier Bonuses.
2 Piece: Increases your pet’s critical strike chance with all its attacks by 10%.
As demonology, this is nice because our Felguard can crit for upwards of 2k however this does nothing for our personal dps (duh!)
For destruction, any increase to the Imp’s crit increases the chance that you will get the Empowered Imp buff which makes your next spell a guaranteed crit.
4 Piece: Increases the damage done by your Immolate, Corruption, and Unstable Affliction spells by 10%.
This bonus is nice because it applies to two of our base Damage over Time spells:
Corruption is our bread and butter opener, we need it to proc our nice Molten Core bonuses so a 10% increase in damage is very nice. Also, Immolate is used in case our Incinerates get Molten Cored.
In conclusion: Not enough haste. But that’s just me.
