I agree that they do feel more like sequals on how they change the game. I specifically like how they are trying to dig many classes out of the pigeon holes they were unintentionally put in, as well as trying to even out all the specs so that no single one better than the other for any class.I play a warlock, and while I enjoy being affliction, its nice to see that we won't be rolling our eyes when we see someone join a group with a fel guard because demo is currently horribly underpowered as well as misused. The changes to that tree should see some more action on the raiding front. But I still expect to see many locktards not using the tree to its best potential.

Its amazing how many people still believe the class stereotypes, even when they have been disproven. Not theorycrafted, disproven.Try reading about felguard raiding sometime. http://wowmb.net/forums/f106/17405-raiding_felguard_ssc_tk_hyjal_bt/Nyarlathotep does a nice write-up of a felguard raiding SSC, TK, Hyjal and BT. The conclusion? "On average it seems demonology damage is higher than other warlock build damage."

Class balance? There really is never a class balance. IMO they screw up the premise of some classes. I still remember the days when dagger rogues could actually do some good. Now dagger rogues are like hitting with butterknives. Seriously, there are so many move specifically for daggers on rogues, yet now it's stupid to roll with daggers. TY BC. Still being a mage, (and prone to QQ) I have seen my class go down the drain since WoW's original Beta and am praying that Blizz finally relizes that we need help.

I switched from Affliction to Demonology a few weeks ago and probably won't look back for a year. My DPS about trippled immediately and my survivability went up.

But Demonology requires pet management, which a large number of WoW players can't handle.I've seen Demo 'locks in Kara and badge gear top DPS charts against T6-geared raids. It's an amazing spec. Too bad Destro is so much easier.
