    Default Prime Defiler Guide

    So this guide has all the information on how to use Level 50, Level 60 & Level 65 Defiler all in one place.
    Though warning mistakes could be present.



    Level 50
    Best Spec:
    51 Defiler, 8 Inquisitor, 7 Shaman


    Buff:
    Armor of Devotion


    Starting Rotation:
    Marrow Harvest > Furious Might
    Miserly Affliction > Greed's Corruption

    Bond of Pain > Pain’s Transmission
    Explosive Rage/Aggressive Avarice

    Without Bond of Pain:
    Marrow Harvest > Furious Might > Miserly Affliction > Siphon Vitality
    Furious Infestation > Greed’s Corruption > Call of Rage > Rage Extraction

    Rage Extraction > Pain’s Transmission
    Explosive Rage/Aggressive Avarice


    Rotation:
    Keep all Defiler damage over time abilities active on the enemy.

    If at 4 or less stacks of Rage use Pain’s Transmission.
    If at 4 or less stacks of Greed use Greed's Corruption.

    Use Explosive Rage at 5 stacks of Rage.
    Use Aggressive Avarice at 5 stacks of Greed.

    If your waiting on stacks reapply you Greed DoTs for additional stacks.

    For AoE cast your Defiler DoTs evenly on each enemy and use Pain’s Transmission.

    Don't cast Greed's Call.


    Macros:
    #show Marrow Harvest
    suppressmacrofailures
    cast Marrow Harvest
    cast Greed's Corruption
    cast Husk of Indifference

    #show Corrupted Field
    suppressmacrofailures
    cast @gtae Corrupted Field
    cast Corrupted Field

    for rift prime players. This deals roughly twice the damage of vanilla bis cleric specs on single target and can aoe with ease large packs but strangely isn't very good on "pure" aoe(lots of tabing).

    What the previous poster said. Defiler is so far ahead Single Target of all the other specs it isn't even close. Of you haven't got defiler yet, do it. Look at the guide in this sub forum.

    Other than the part where Runeshaper is about 25% better, even post nerf. And Sentinels being sentinels.

    For me on dummies right now:
    44 Rune ~1.75k
    51 Defiler ~1.35k
    48 Druid ~1k (haven't done this one in a couple days, but it's behind defiler/rune)
    41 Druid ~900
    Shaman/Inq/Cabalist <700

    Sentinels until they get nerfed are what you're running in pve dungeons for dps though. They perform as well as runeshapers but also heal, so..

    Defilier is way too strong, especially in PVP. Easily the #1 damage spec in PVP in 20-29 range (not sure about higher tiers since I'm not there yet). They are putting out 2-3x the amount of damage of any other spec, from any class.

    What do you mean by this? During AoE or always? Could you explain why?

    I wasn't sure if the sentinel thing was a troll, but I've heard it in a few places. How is this soul dpsing so much? Is it simply through passive damage of someone else through a buff? Sounds like an easy scaling fix.

    Damage from Wrathful Exuberance isn't scaled down by 60-70% like all normal damage abilities are on the server.

    Greed's call is pretty useless. You could pre-cast it before a dungeon boss I guess but in combat it is just not worth casting.

    I don't understand. It's off gcd and it's just a free greed stack (sometimes 2!). How is it not worth casting. What else are you doing during your 1.5s gcd.

    Ah, I did not realize it was off GCD, this is my first time playing defiler and I just never put it on my bar based on what this guide said.

    That being said, for regular questing when you're chain pulling mobs I don't think I'd cast it. Things generally die on their own from the dots and you hit 5 greed stacks so quickly when you have multiple targets dotted that it would be a minuscule dps gain at the cost of life. If you're in a group and not getting hit the greed dot heals probably keep you topped anyway so I could see using it to maximize dps.

    Well indeed it's just a dps gain however you look at it. Particularly in PvP when trying to finish someone off. Slight risk but often worth it.

    Can't see how you wouldn't cast it in PvE ST or AoE either. I've always found prioritising 5 stack Avarice over dotting other mobs produces more effective dmg
