If I may ask a questio that's undoubtedly been asked a million times before: Which is the best leveling spec? I got a lock to 26ish with demo, and tbh it was painful, I'd rather avoid it should I go back to that character.

In utter seriousness, whichever spec you enjoy the most :)Levelling is so quick these days, the only thing that could make it take a significant period of time is getting bored/not enjoying the playstyle.For hardcore raiding, playing your second favourite spec because it's more viable is a good thing (if you're that dedicated), for levelling up just play whichever gives you the most funsies ;)-Earsofpower (dj.clayden), starting the campaign to get the word funsies in a state of "common usage"
Each has its strengths. Demonology's got the toughest pets. They can be damn-near immortal between Fel Synergy and Blood Feed. Affliction probably has the best self-healing capabilities, plus they can multi-dot better than anyone else for some sweet cleave damage. Destruction has some pretty major burst damage and can blow most single mobs up very fast, but is probably the weakest against multiple mobs. Most people would probably say Demo and Affliction are tied for best, and Destro is the worst, but I've had a lot of fun leveling with the "mob goes boom" power of destruction.Ultimately, it's whichever suits your personality and playstyle. Thankfully, respecs are super-cheap at low levels.

Just go with demonology, as a true warlock would do: toss in a dot or two to get the loot, lay back and relax until your demon kills stuff for you. Especially if you have gathering profession, you can easily pick flowers while waiting for the demon to do the job.

Destro, when you can talent conflag to daze 100% of the time, is godly. The mobs usually don't even reach you.
