Well Corruption is just a healer, so your rotation is just using whatever you've got. Toss in some Consumptions probably if you're getting low on Force.

Madness is pretty easy. Crushing Darkness, then repeated Force Lightning (till CD is like 2 seconds from being over), then Affliction, then Death Field, then Creeping Terror, then more Force Lightning, then Crushing Darkness; and then it just kind of repeats. Key thing is you want to make sure your Death Mark charges aren't taken up by Crushing Darkness.

Lightning is a pain to explain (hey that rhymed). I haven't done Lightning since around 2 weeks after release so I'm kind of guessing here. Crushing Darkness, then Affliction (always keep it up but don't clip durations), then Thundering Blast, then repeated Lightning Strikes, <Force Lightning when that ability procs>, <Chain Lightning is in here somewhere when it insta procs>...... something like that. Someone that knows more about being a Lightning spec can probably correct me in there, but that's a place to start from.

As 1.4 is coming out - I know a lot of sorcs are trying to put in the last ditch efforts to min max. As I don't believe it has been explicitly spelled out, I have put together a list based on the pieces laid out on the initial post - based around the madness spec. From there, there's only slight modifications to achieve BiS for the other 2 specs. This gear set assumes full 26 armorings in all pieces, full epic augments, and a 41 power crystal.

Madness:

Mods:
Aptitude 26: 6
Mettle 26: 2

Enhancements:
Adept 26: 3
Battle 26: 2
Insight 26: 1

I have a question, how would you change this, if at all, for pvp? Like would you use an expertise crystal instead of power, or would you emphasize crit chance and crit power more?

I'm sorry, I don't really focus much on pvp. I would imagine it translates rather well for maximizing single target dps in a plant and burn situation. I can't speak for all of the other variables related to PVP.

Ok I am bumping this up for new BiS discussions for PVP for a full madness sorc.

Just looking to min/max with 63 mods for max dps.

I see above the BiS is listed for PVE

Just looking for a good AMR profile to go off of since I absolutely do not want to purchase something that is incorrect and have to regrind.

Any help would be amazing

Bumping this, because I just ran into a sage dps that didn't use alacrity
CJuice Sandwich-lazy sage seer || Cmeat Sandwich- fat blind engi sniper
lil'cmeat Sandwich- it's a lil Cmeat! Gunslinger || Naked-snake- looks more like plissken, scoundrel
Laziness is a skill
