Topic Destro in MoP-PvP

It's changing completely, as are both of the other builds. Our class is more or less getting a full reboot.
Destruction will have its own recource.
Yeah i read a bit about it. Burning embers.
I guess that can be good, altho if they change to much, one might not like the class they originallly rolled anymore.
Its just that i dislike the whole demonform, so that one is out.
and the dotting without a nuke playstyle isnt me either.
and i liked the seduce a target, fear something, destro-nuke, getting hit=instant incinerate pewpew kinda style :). I saw cer, drakedog and sylvictus(i think that was his name) their vids years back.
But yeah, guess its hard to tell with a full reboot.
as far as i know(i might be wrong at certain parts, feel free to correct me)
destruction warlock's mana usage is now different from any other mana users.
destro uses his mana in a smiliar way a rogue uses his energy. to clarify that; destro spells cost huge amounts of mana but on the otherhand Chaotic Energy passive spell, yields amazing numbers of mana regeneration. the spell acts similary to life tap but its passive, and infact replaces it completely.
you can figure out that destro gameplay will be more dynamic than ever.
mobility and survivability increases drastically through talents
such as burning rush; costs hp per second but increases the warlock's speed by 50%
or dark bargain, warlock variant of paladin's bubble.
or kil'jaeden's cunning that allows warlock to cast and channel spell while running. but doubling the cast time and the duration of channelized spells.
there is also a new mechanic called burning embers, replacing soul shards. you gain burning embers through certain spells(like casting incinerate on an immolated target).
there are 3(4 with glpyh) ember levels. the more embers you contain, the more damage your certain spells deal. the embers also deal damage to you at a certain degree
burning embers %1 damage every 3 secs
searing embers %1 damage every 2 secs
cremation %1 damage every second.
it's like you start blazing by using your certain fire spells, blazing and blazing until you can't contain the flames and then unleashing all the fire(SOUL FIRE!) towards the enemy.
damn i got carried away again, its so much win.
