I'd also like to point out that warlocks with Glyph of Life Tap gain an additional 20% of their spirit as spellpower, on top of Fel Armor. So spirit is a pretty good stat for locks.

Which is why you'll see many (better read) locks sporting the +15 Spirit chest enchant over the sexier and more expensive +10 stats enchant. It is better from a purely dps standpoint.

Yes, Spirit is an excellent stat for Warlocks. Which makes this differentiation that much harder.

The difference between 10 stats and 15 spirit is pretty slim, on the order of like 1-2 spellpower. 15 spirit CAN be cheaper, although it uses BC mats, so it depends on your server.

I'm a demo lock. Healers should want *me* to have spirit.Fel Armor + Demonic Aegis (talent) = 39% spirit -> spellpower.Glyph of Life Tap = 20% spirit -> spellpower.Assuming I'll have Blessing of Kings during a raid, every 100 spirit (just to take a nice round number) on my gear translates to 64.9 spellpower. (That is, 100 spi on gear = 110 spi buffed = 64.9 sp.) Which then gives everyone in the raid 6.49 spellpower. Even rogues. And we all want our rogues to have spellpower, right?Seriously though, 100 spirit for me is like 6.5 sp * 6 healers = 39 spellpower distributed across the healing team, even setting aside the raid DPS boost. If your demo lock is rolling on spirit gear, let him roll.

@Brouck, unless you're a demo lock. In which case the +10 stats is MUCH more beneficial. With Demonic Knowlege talent, a lock's pet's Stam and int give the lock a bit of SP. Since the pet's stam/int scale with it's master's, increasing stam/int/spirit by 10 is MUCH more sexy than just +15 spirit.
