Life Tap before the pull
Curse of the Elements (or Curse of Doom) → Immolate → Corruption → Conflagrate → Chaos Bolt → Incinerate.
Immolate - Keep the debuff up at all times
Corruption - Keep the debuff up at all times
Conflagrate - This should be used every time it’s off CD
Chaos Bolt - This is your primary spell
Incinerate - Use this when everything else is applied or on CD
Keep Curse of the Elements or Curse of Doom on the target at all times. You use Curse of Doom if you
have an Unholy Death Knight or Moonkin in your group. Otherwise, you use Curse of the Elements.
Imp is your best pet. He deals the most damage, and the builds above both have Empowered Imp, which gives us a 100% chance to crit after he crits.
Here are the main stats that you need. INT or spirit isn't so important, so don't focus on them.
Hit (17%) (14% with talents or raid buffs) (13% if alliance)
Spell Power - more - better.Critical Strike - need more than 35%
Haste - softcap - 700, cap - 1300.
