Looks to me like metamorphasis is garbage. i read a bit of the forum asking what they should do with it and wish i could have commented there but since i am not in the beta i will comment here instead. i LOVE the idea of this spell. but they failed in the implimentation. Your a demonologist, meaning your entire focus in life as a warlock is in domination/full on mastery of demons. The spell is a great idea. why not give the lock the ability to force a demon into their own body.well of course in the process of doing this, they remove all the abilities the lock gained in being a demonologist in the first place. so we look at demonic sacrifice and see that a demonologist can crush demons under his command and steal their souls to invest himself with their abilities and enhance his power. why not make this a form spell like shadowform.say your lock grows some really cool demonic wings and perhaps a shifty shadow dust form of demon overlapping his own body rather than a full on demon model that frankly looks ridiculous. you could say lets add different metamorphosis effects for each demon you have summoned. but lets not go that crazy. you gain a demon soul and add a demonic visage to yourself. it gives your spells more power. locks get the awesome GREEN FIRE they want so bad in this form and a drippy BLACK shadowbolt instead of the weak purpley ones we get now. with the demon form/spell effects it will give a feeling of something special. add some extra spell damage or allow you to use two shield effects instead of just one. fel armor and demonic armor one for your lock and one for the superimposed demon form. health regen and increased spell damage. then you can add in a couple of bonus effects. more damage to your shadow and fire spells by say 15% overall while in this form. make it a permanent effect that might remove your ability to cast fear or something while in this form. it takes more thought to really perfect but its a great start. and instead of a silly demon form it gives locks something they really want. green fire and black shadowbolts.

I like your way of thinking :)

I think the Metamorphosis model should have pink ponytails and serve ice cream out of their butts, oh and big red clown shoes.See utility is what locks are all about, now we get ice cream while we laugh at the clown show.DIAF

That doesn't really fit with the lore at all. Metamorphasis is a spell cast by demon hunters which temporarily transforms them into a demon (i.e. Leotharas and Illidan), granting them separate abilities. Suggestions asking for a 'holy form' or a 'demon form' stance aren't helpful at all, as the purpose served is really not needed. Demonic sacrifice works fine as is.Warlocks need a way to be able to take a beating in PVP, and it looks like that's what Metamorphasis should be - a way to to turn the tables on that pesky rogue or warrior who've gotten you trapped in melle range. Up your armor and give you instant-cast abilities more suited to close-quarters combat. In PVE, demonologist often lag behind their counterparts due to their reliance on their pet; so Metamorphasis can serve as a dps-timer ability, especially useable in situations where your pet could easily die quickly. I think it needs to last a good amount of time, but really only useable once per fight. Say 3-4 minutes on a 15 minute cooldown.
