Have I talked about this before? Well I’m going to talk about it in more detail again since I’m considering on saving up emblems to obtain the Dark Coven set since I pretty much don’t need anything else that can be traded with frost.
Why? Is the T10 itemized really well for Demonology?
Well, it depends on your own playstyle and what stats you are missing, but what’s different with comparing an entire gear-set to individual pieces is the bonus it grants.
Two-piece Bonus: The critical strike chance of Shadowbolt, Incinerate, Soulfire, and Corruption are increased by 5%.
Ok, this bonus is equivalent to having an extra 250 crit rating on everything BUT Immolate and of course Demonology corruptions cannot crit (but they should).
Shadowbolt: our main nuke, so this is a no brainer, 5% is 5%.
Incinerate: when we do cast our three Incinerates under the Molten Core effect, they will be hasted, damage increased, and again 5% increase in crit.
Soulfire: When Decimation hits….you know what happens. All your Soulfires will now have a flat 5% increase in crit, and you know you love it when they crit!
Four-Piece Bonus: Each time your Immolate and Unstable Affliction deal periodic damage, you have a 15% chance to gain 10% damage done by you and your pet for 10 seconds.
From the looks of it, this proc has no cooldown and can stay active just like the druid t9 healing idol if you happen to get lucky with the 15% proc chance per Immolation Tick.
So what can you do for ten seconds? At the very least?
If all I had was Shadowbolt spam-time, they could crit for 15k times 1.10, so 16,500 not bad not bad.
What about Decimation-Time? 24k times 1.10 for 26,400? Ooohh not bad not bad, and I can cast about six in 10 seconds and they will all have a +5% chance to crit with the T2 bonus.
What about Cataclysm-Time? During the Cataclysm proc your Soulfires become Fel Maw, they look just like Soulfires but are three times larger, they chain cast three in a row and do 8,353 – 10,524 fire damage to the enemy and all enemies in a 25 yard radius. The base cast time of this spell is 15 seconds but under the Cataclysm proc they cast for the exact same time as a Decimated Soulfire. The spellpower co-efficient is about 665%. So with a 10% increase if my Fel Maws usually crit for 73,000 now times 1.10 we’ll be seeing crits well into 80k which should be enough to catch up with Arcane Mages. In ten seconds we can cast six times and since three spells chain together ok you know what….
I’m only looking at the T10 bonus crap because the Helm looks pretty cool and essentially….
..maybe I’ll just save up for the Helm and screw the bonus, too much work, too lazy.
