@damoronsonline:Well, Drain Life Might Be Higher In Theory, I Don't Disagree, But Who Here Has An Ethernet Connection To All The US Server Boxes, Cable Short Enough For 0 Ping, And Has Fingers Moving At The Same Speed As Electricity?To Play Aff Drain At That Level, Is NOT Humanly Possible.Haunt Won't Roll On 2 Targets, But That Extra 4 Seconds By Switching It Every Cast Is A DPS Increase As Opposed To The Usual Clipping.And As A Progression Raider You Had To Go Destro Or Demo For An Epic DPS Increase Of 50 Per Second?Really?50?Shadow Embrace SHOULD NOT Be A Self Buff.DoTs Adapt Their Damage To Buffs/Debuffs On The Target, Not To Buffs Or Debuffs On You, Changing That Would Have A Huge Impact On Our First Dot Sequence.Even Though The Increased CD On Soulswap Means UA And Corruption Falling Off, It Does Also Mean More Ticks Of BoA, So The Nerf Is Minor And Hardly Notable.It's Still Better Than Casting These Dots Manually Like We Used To Have To.@Tyler,Affliction Still Has A Lot Of Utility, Unfortunately It's Utility Is, And Has Always Been Very PvP Orientated, Though The Real Point Of Affliction Isn't Those Gimmicks In The Other Specs You Mentioned, But Rather The Way In Which It's Damage Is Dealt.Destro Provides Very Consistent 10 Second Bursts, Demo Is Very Much Reliant On Procs And Can Have Amazing Bursts When The Right Things Tick Over, As Well As AoE Situations.Affliction On The Other Hand, Has An Extremely Long Ramp Up Time.We Have Purely Consistent Damage, That Multiplies Ridiculously In The Last Quarter Of The Fight, Which Is Often Enough To Make Up For The Stupid Mage That Stood In Fire.Our Soulburn Isn't Required For DPS Like The Other Specs, Leaving Us With A Dash, HP Increase, A Little More DPS With A Quick Heal, A Pet Change, Or An Explosion Of Nightfall, Soul Leech And Eradication Procs.I Can't Help But Feel You're Down-Playing Affliction, I Agree The Spec Doesn't Quite FEEL Right, But That Doesn't Mean We're Completely Useless./Wall Of Text.TL:DR; Warlocks Rock!
