Not long ago they barely existed at post-level 80. Heck when I hit 80 I had frequent complaints in my guild that "affliction can't be competitive" and "I've never seen a level 80 lock who wasn't destro before". That has changed, affliction can now once more top the DPS scores regularly (in my regular 10-man group the only one who usually beats me is the hunter) - but it is definitely the hardest of the three specs to play, it's a spec that requires continuous concentration and massive situational awareness to do well. Needless to say - doing well has ended the complaints :P Even now though, afflocks are still very rare, at least on my server. If I see ONE other fellpuppy in a week it's remarkably high. There's plenty out in the world because it's still one of the best levelling specs, but at level 80 or above nearly every lock is destro, most of the rest are demo. Afflocks are the rare elite.
