I thought Curse of Elements was the typical curse you should be using as destruction. I specced out of backdraft and molten core. I don't want to cast shadow spells to get a *chance* to proc something for 10% more fire damage. I'd rather be using that mana for my fire spells. And grinding on quest mobs and trash, there's rarely time for my immolate to even get to the point where I could use conflag without having the immolate itself more of a waste of mana from not having it ticking as long.Of course I'm kinda speaking from an efficiency standpoint and not a 'dump all mana asap' standpoint.

You might be retarded if: you think backdraft has to do with shadow spells. Also, if you think that backdraft is not useful.

The Destro rotation should start with CoD/CoA-> Corruption->Immolate->CB->Incinerate till last Immolate tick then Conflag->whack-a-moleCasting is more about priority then an actual rotation right now. The above is the priority of spells. In any fight that won't last 24 seconds just skip the shadow spells.Nothing beats Shadowfury for PvP IMO, odd choice to skip it.

@Devant - Shadowfury emanates from the caster. The idea behind the build I used (which skipped most of the PvP talents, like stuns) is to pewpew from afar. In that regard, Shadowburn works much, much better. No question, though, if you want to PvP as Destro, Shadowfury is a must.

Zach are we talking about the same spell? Shadowfury has a 36 yard range and is cast similarly to using a grenade. It doesn't emanate from the caster so much as bring up a targeting circle like Rain of Fire.It's instant just like Shadowburn but it has the benefits of not costing a soul shard, doing more damage, being an aoe, causing a three second stun, having 16 more yards of range, and very important it does not activate the global cooldown. If only it healed us too...Shadowburn is a useful spell don't get me wrong, but it doesn't hold a candle to Shadowfury.

Devant,Your rotation is off. Cast incinerate first, Chaos Bolt right before the Conflag. Otherwise Conflag consumes the immolate before the incinerate hits and does less damage.Also, I'm not sure you're clear on what "whack-a-mole" is/means.

@LOLWARLOCK - You missed every point of my post. I never said backdraft had anything to do with shadow spells. I said that I specced out of backdraft and molten core. Then I said that I didn't want to cast shadow spells to have molten core proc. (See that explained why I specced out of molten core). And I never said that backdraft was useless. I said that from a mana efficiency standpoint (Hey, look I'm talking about PvE!) casting Conflag to activate backdraft right away didn't make sense to me since most everything I'm fighting right now (pre-70) is dying before I get a chance to conflag. GJ on reading comprehension.
