    Shadow has a lot of potential now. It will be the ultimate glass cannon spec in the right hands. if I had the time I'd level one.

    Did they get buffed? Because i topped an old boost off to 98 just to get a trinket for my UH DK (complicated) and i liked it so much i'm still gearing it. Once i get all 4 zone rewards i'll try it out in PvP, feels promising.

    edit- i have one at 101 i was going to gear up, but i didnt care for the playstyle right when legion dropped. Feels fine now. Another "me problem" again....

    Their dots hit ungodly hard. Less toughness and utility compared to a lock, but the damage is so good I think it'll be okay. I've been with non twinked ones pushing 5-6mil dmg in wsg. Just goes to show what kind of wreckage can be done in the right hands. My 79 twink can 100-0 people with VT/SWP.

    I didnt even look at the talents i picked when i entered legion because it was just supposed to be a run-for-item toon, and i just picked all the passives... later on i was questing a bit to upgrade from BoA, and every time i cast VT it applied SWP too - i was like "this is the best change EVUR!!!"

    Yeah.... it's a talent. But i'm never even checking the other 2 because it's the best idea evur.

    For what's it worth, I can confirm that the Rank IV Compendium (AK Rank 20) is NOT usable on a 99. We all figured as much but I was hoping Blizz had overlooked it ;)

    Played a game on a 99 havoc DH yesterday, not full gear or many art traits, and was pretty enjoyable. They seemingly aren't top-tier DPS per se... but i did decent damage and had good uptime on targets. Could have been a good team with me tho too.

    Good times regardless, and for anyone interested not yet making one it might be a good idea to get on it.... Blizz tends to ruin things.

    Still only horde able to lock before 100, anyone know?

    I was harping about spriests and how good they are for the last two weeks....and now theyre getting a HUGE NERFBAT.

    Do not play or make one. I quit mine at level 97.

    To clarify leveling from 90-99. You don't want to use the elixir until your partner is going to kill the last boss.

    After he kills them you'll get about a level or so from the bonus xp.

    Afterwards, run out and log out. One potion should get you from 90 to 99 if you're quick to log out after each kill. All you want to be logged in for is the last boss kill

    I just cannot for the life of me make that jump for the 2nd chest in Nelth. I've tried in human form, cat form, travel form, and I'm always either too short or smack into the wall and drop straight down. Any tips?

    I didn't know humans could be druids...

    Anyways, have you tried using Dash? On my paladin I used divine steed which is a 100% speed increase. Also, the way I line it up is there's this big crack right in front of the boss. I set myself up by standing on that crack and angling myself ever so slightly to the right relative to the crack. I'm able to get the 2nd chest 100% of the time. EZ PZ.

    Hah, you know what I meant :p My problem is that if I'm going fast I hit the wall above the ledge and then just fall straight downward. Are you able to fall on the ledge even if you hit the wall above it first?

    Get the other tinker on cloak that's like a parachute. Put it on a random cloak and use it to glide slowly into the hole. It's better than noggin foggy or just jumping down

    You should be able to keep going forward. Just hold down your run button the whole time. As I said, I use divine steed which is 100% increase in speed. I believe that's faster than anything a druid has.

    I'll try the engi parachute if I still can't get it, thanks!

    On a different topic I'm trying to figure out how Ye has 427k health as a boomkin. Even with 21 artifact levels that's only +15.75% stamina and ilevel should only be another ~15% health on the template. But the untwinked base is somewhere around 220k... the math just doesn't add up.

    Not sure if ur still updating this guide but I'd like to give my 2 cents in Destro locks since I think I'm the only person that I know atm playing the spec. Imo, in comparison, destro seems to be average at best caster spec in the bracket but don't take that as meaning its not viable. Chaos bolts are ranging 30k - 35k dmg and 35k - 45k with CDs [blood fury and soul harvest (if you spec it)] at a ~2.3s cast time per with conflag buff (w/backdraft and reverse entropy spec'd). Your total max "burst" potential is decent by popping all rifts and triple choas bolts with blood fury/soul harvest. However, this dmg is comparable to about one big Full Moon crit and takes 8+ GCDs to pull off. U can keep up in dmg compared to other twinks but it comes from try-hard group incinerate aoe spam (Fire and Brimstone spec'd). The one upside is you very tanky, similar to ur other warlock specs. If you win a 1v1 as destro, it's not the because your out dmging ur opponent but merely out surviving lol. As for utility, they have all ur standard cc's u know Warlock to have but lack the stuns u gain as Demo.

    That being said, if u go into destro with no expectations of being Tier 1, its a fun spec and satisfying. It can shine if well played and out play ur opponent.
