I've been messing with the alpha talent tree and even though we do have a few new options to try out it's still not clear if they can overcome the cookie cutter spec's we use now. Like most Warlocks the first thing I'm doing is speccing Demon Form like when we got our Felguard. But I can see it becoming as useless as the Felguard became.0/21/40 will become 0/21/50 for endgame PvE and we get a lot of nice additions to increase our DPS with the new talents and 10 more points. With the main change being we won't be getting Demonic Embrace since a new Destro talent increases our spell damage based on the spirit we have. However, 50/0/21 is looking very viable for endgame as well since the new end tier Affliction talent is not needed for PvE meaning you can grab Ruin.SL/SL - 23/38/0 or 24/37/0 will become 30/41/0 and likely will dominate arena like it always has. But PvP also has the new options of going Affliction or Destruction and not losing Soul Link. Affliction and Destruction are currently being played in the 2k brackets by a small amount of Warlocks that have very limited choice on who their teammate(s) are in order to succeed and it's likely this won't change just by adding Soul Link to them.41/5/11+4 will likely become 54/17/0 and 7/7/47 or 0/5/56 will likely become 0/17/54From what I understand Felguard only does well in 5v5 and even that might not be true anymore, this is where Demon Form comes in. It will take the place of the Felguard PvP spec of 7/43/11 and become 7/53/11. Although, I am interested in trying 2 Demon Form locks in 2v2 and seeing how we do.

I was reworking the new SL/SL spec and its likely it will actually become 30/34/0+7 and not simply 30/41/0. Depending on your situation you could put the extra points all Affliction for instant Howl of Terror or do something like 32/39/0, 34/37/0, or 35/36/0 all depending on how much protection you want for your pet and your dots.
