[EDIT: In response to some comments.. no, fire is not better than shadow, no, there is no cap on spell damage, and no, I wasn't able to use Doom, I was on COE duty. And thanks to the various people who told me I can put up dots during the shield, I actually didn't realize that having never done the fight as anything but destro.]
This is a video showing me DPSing on High Warlord Najentus in Black Temple. The purpose of the video isn't to show Naj'entus, but to show the destruction PvE spec and how ridiculous its DPS is, topping meters by just spamming shadow bolt and scaling amazingly well with high tier gear.
Its also a big crit movie for those who enjoy that type of thing. The highest is 10402 in this movie. As you can see by the meters I was over 90k above second place, with a ridiculous crit rate of 43% on my shadow bolt [8% above my actual crit chance] due to some insane luck. I did 2135 DPS over the 5 minute fight according to WWS, or 2066 according to Recount. The bloodlust was a bit late because I was trying to wait for a 3rd trinket use, but he died too quickly apparently.
This is definitely not about skill.. more so its about the lack of it in destruction raiding. It also kind of shows to people what warlock DPS has degenerated into; putting up a curse, and spamming my 2 key.
Even some of my guild mates are surprised thats all I do in raids, so I thought I might as well show it to other people that may be interested in seeing another classes job. I'm not really complaining though.. I like being consistently top DPS. :P
Disclaimers etc: This will be boring for you if you are expecting skill or lots of editing. This is flat up PVE DPS and big crits.
