WoW - A Warlock's Guide to HFC 6.2.3 (Quick Reference Guide) by Lourinzo

I'm Lourinzo from Mind Games on US-Illidan, 13/13 Mythic. I get a lot of questions about warlocks on a fight by fight basis so I created this quick reference guide for anyone who's interested.
1) Hellfire Assult: Destruction (DSI + UBGoS) - Havoc + Shadowburn x2/3 as many targets as possible - Dump as many chaos bolts into siege vehichles as possible

2) Iron Reaver - Affliction (Fragment + DSI) - Soulswap dots onto bombs then drain soul to regen your shard - Use gateway or teleport to escape barrage

3) Kormrok - Progression - Demonology (Fragment + DSI) - Cata + chaos wave when hands spawn (this is why you're playing demonology)

       - Farm/Zerg - Affliction (Fragment + DSI)    
    - cata when hands spawn (if you need extra damage)
    or
    - standard spec and soulswap to the larger grasping hand to free the off tank

4) Council - Affliction (Fragment + DSI) - Grimoire of Supremecy (imp) - keep maximum uptime on all 3 targets, keep refreshing dots

5) Kilrog Deadeye - Progression - Destruction (Piston + DSI) - havoc adds/boss with chaosbolt or shadowburn x2/3 - glyph of conflag to slow adds and/or - save charge of conflag for when you need to dance - teleport with heart seeker

              - Farm/Zerg - Affliction (Fragment + DSI)     
        - glyph of soulswap
        - soulswap to adds, drain soul to regen shard

6) Gorefiend - Progression - Destruction (Piston + DSI) or (Voidsight* + DSI) - havoc adds/boss with chaosbolt or shadowburn x2/3 - glyph of conflag to slow adds - use gateway/teleport for extra mobility - shadowfurry to stun adds inside stomach - Orb of Voidsight only works on the boss, NOT THE ADDS!!*

         - Farm/Zerg - Affliction (Fragment + DSI) or (Voidsight* + DSI)

7) Iskar - Destruction (Piston + DSI) - use gateway/portal to move out for chakram - use Sacrificial Pact when targeted by Fel Incineration, keep the fire stacked in one spot - If you have a mythic piston or adds live for less than 15-20 seconds, don't bother casting immolate during fire + brimstone. - during the third add phase, stand on the edge of platform and kill the boss before he lands using havoc + immo/conflag/incin x3 to quickly regen burning embers. this allows you to dump even more chaos bolts into the boss. - Fragment can be used on this boss IF adds stay alive for 25+ seconds but requires you to cast fire + brimstone x incin 3-5 times before casting fire + brimstone x chaos bolt.
