Doomguard was not the highest DPS pet. It was equal to the fully talented Felguard when run by someone who knew what they were doing. It's just that it, you know, didn't take an entire spec to make it useful.Yeah, 0/41/30 is going away. This may be the first time I've been excited to play Affliction.

Actually, 0/41/30 isn't totally going away. Current Elitist Jerks 3.1 simcraft runs shows, in equal gear: #1 @ 6457 DPS for 0/40/31; #2 @ 6457 DPS for 0/41/30; #3 @ 6298 for 3/52/16; #4 @ 5198 53/0/18; #5 @ 6147 DPS for 0/56/15; #6 @ 6091 for 0/13/58Hardly going away at the moment, in fact, it's even more potent then ever. But on the plus side, the variance between all of the main specs is less than 400dps, or around 6%. If your raid has all the buffs, you can now play the spec you like!

Whoops - Typo. #1 should be 6528 DPS for 0/40/31.

So, uh, I take it that 2/64/0 would be deemed to suck as the split for my 75 lock, then? :)I really love my demon form. I really wish they would add more abilities to it, or at least reduce the cooldown. As it is, it's my last defense when suddenly I'm the last guy standing besides the trees, my felguard's down so I've got all the aggro, and 10 seconds might mean the difference between wiping or saving the fight. But I've never tried to study techniques for fighting, wouldn't know where to look to know what's "right."Oh, seems to help a bit if I can manage to switch to it at the first inkling of world PvP, too. But maybe only because very few people seem to use it outside, so it surprises.

Not likely that anyone will read this at this point, but in case Artifex does, I used to [post-3.0, pre-wrath] use metamorph as part of my spec - actually OT'd Dragonhawk [well, first egg phase at least] when the OT paladin dc'd during a timed run.
