Any update for phase 2?

Can we get some further explanation on why we are mixxing Spellstrike and Frozen Shadoweave instead of committing to one or the other based on spec?

Hey there!

Awesome question!

Realistically, we shouldn’t be using items from the Shadow’s Embrace set if we chose to pursue the Destro-Fire build since the bulk of our damage revolves around fire damage and not shadow. However, in the case of the default (or shadow) build, every piece from the Shadow’s Embrace would be our best choice. I’ve updated the guide to better reflect gearing for the two different builds.

For the shadow build, both Spellstrike and the Shadow’s Embrace sets happen to be your Pre-Raid BiS. Admittedly, the Spellstrike set will last significantly longer than the Shadow’s Embrace Set once you start obtaining raid-level gear.

Hey there, Eristal!

The only change in gear between the two talent builds would be in the Pre-Raid section where we would replace the Shadoweave set if we’re using the Destro-Fire build since we wouldn’t be relying on shadow damage.

For the Phase 1 BiS list, it incorporates both fire and shadow spell damage, puts you at hit cap (if not slightly above) and will carry you into Tier 5 content easily.

Edit: Missed the word shadow in the second paragraph

For the standard destruction builds we benefit from using Demonic Sacrifice instead of using a minion/pet for DPS. Sacrificing the imp gives +15% Fire damage and sacrificing the Succubus gives +15% Shadow damage.
