In the Destruction Warlock’s guide on AMR, I can see that Flashover and Soul Fire are very close to Eradication, with almost full bars, but Eradication is still the only 100% full bar in that tier for all covenants in a Multi-target scenario. I don’t understand why or how numbers can produce such a recommendation.
The guide itself puts Rain of Fire well above Chaos Bolt in action priorities when there are 3+ targets, and there’s no cooldown on Rain of Fire, so in a multi-target scenario, why would I be spending any Soul Shards on Chaos Bolt to benefit from Eradication at all when I can spend those shards on stacking Rain of Fires?
When it comes to Flashover, which is the multi-target recommended talent in both Wowhead’s and Icy Veins’s guides, you can benefit from a 25% increased damage to an instant spell and also an extra faster Incinerate that you need to spam anyway in a multi-target scenario when you don’t have enough shards for a Rain of Fire.
I would fully agree with the argument that Eradication should be taken for Mythic+ scenarios in Tyrannical weeks but as it stands, taking Eradication over Flashover for general multi-target scenarios, even if only due to a slight edge, just isn’t making any sense to me yet. I hope someone can explain to me that slight edge that is making Eradication the only 100% full bar in that tier.
