A couple things on your writeup:You wrote "...and 2/2 Fel Intellect." That should be 2/3 Fel Intellect.On Fel Dom and Master Summoner, they're necessary for a heavy Demo build b/c most of the Demo buffs depend on having a demon out. If your demon gets killed or enslaved, those buffs disappear along with the lower half of your primary talent tree. Being able to quickly resummon one is crucial, so I wouldn't call it a luxury, it's definitely a necessity.As for Demonic Sacrifice, that's actually the real filler in a heavy Demo build. When sac a minion, you lose all the buffs from having a minion out that the lower half of the tree gives you - Soul Link mitigation and 5% +dmg, DK +dmg, MD buffs, Unholy Power, and possibly Demonic Tactics (though that's not clear from the DT tooltip). Add all that up, and it's not worth any of the DS bonuses. DS is really the 21pt talent intended to complement the 40pt Afflic or Destro builds, but not 40+ Demo builds.Soul Link: It's 20% mitigation (to demon), not 50%. Was 50% a long time ago, then nerfed to 30%, recently nerfed further to 20%.As for Intensity, it's necessary for the build. The major problem with this build is that you give up a lot of instants for cast-time nukes, Shadowburn being the only exception. As such, you need Intensity to actually be able to get those casts off.As for leveling with the Felguard, don't respec to that till you can get 3/3 Demonic Reslience. He needs it.
