Don't like Bane of Agony? Good news--Bane of Doom is the preferred Affliction Bane on fights longer than 15 seconds, so the only reason you should be using Bane of Agony is multi-target fights.As a result, the current preferred glyphset is Haunt, Corruption & Lash of Pain, with Lash of Pain being replaced by Agony or UA (depending on preference) come 4.1.

In some encounters, yes. The difference between Agony and Doom is a rather convoluted subject last time that I went into it. On pure single target, Doom works out better, yes, but there just aren't all that many pure single target encounters. Out of 12 encounters, there's an average of 5 that you wouldn't use Agony on; it all depends on strategy and whether it's heroic or not.To be technically correct, I should have said that affliction currently switching between Corruption and Agony depending on the encounter, but that Lash of Pain will be dropped in favor of one or the other in the next patch.
