I agree with Tyler here: I really like to get the feeling of distinction between specs. I started playing Affliction and then went on to Destruction and the reason was the niche: while Destruction was pouring demonic fire and blasting away enemy faces, I never felt such a particularity in Affliction. With Affliction I really wanted to basically make my targets have a terrible time dealing with me, making them feel powerless trying to attack my party buddies or me with weapons or spells; pretty much being the annoying dude that always intercepts passes but never makes a touch down; not doing that much damage but really bringing hell to the encounter. As Tyler said: "Affliction really just needs a niche to fill. It's supposed to be the disabling/survivability tree with multiple ways to generate health and more ways to make our enemies less effective, yet we have none of this."I'm not so focused with the whole DPS aspect... I really want my class/spec to be particular, and I strongly believe that reviving, revitalizing or tweaking some basic and what I would call trademark, abilities of the Affliction tree would make it even more fun to play. As said on the post... if the 3 specs do exactly the same DPS, why choose Affliction? Fun. I know I might get my load of feedback from this, but I would rather sacrifice DPS for more utility to get that feeling that the Afflicition Warlock is "a dark caster who attacks and crushes the very core of the soul of his enemies"My... weird 2 cents
