Question:I just started a lock (first one ever). He is currently level 30. I chose destro and can honestly say I like it a lot. That being said I don't want to wait till the endgame and find I'm lacking in dps and have to relearn a spec at 85. So......What, in everyones honest opinion about highest dps spec for locks?? And which pet should I use with which spec (although this article did help with this question).Thx in advance for the responses :-)

It's better to play a spec and rotation that you like. All classes and specs get "balanced", so if I said that Affliction is the best spec right now at 85, it might not be when you get to 85. And you may not like the way an affliction lock plays, and then find out the spec is not doing so well at end-game. Blech.I love destruction on my 85 warlock; I have my own rotation and I'm happy with it, it gets the job done. It's not great for me in PvP, but it if I play it in a supporting role, it can be very good.For soloing stuff, use your Voidwalker or Succubus ~ see which one you prefer. The voidwalker is like a mini-tank, it can provide you with a temporary shield, it has good threat generation, and it can self-heal when out of combat. The voidwalker's damage is not great, however. The succubus is not a tank, but more like a support dps. She can CC a mob, and does decent damage. For dungeons, always bring out your imp. /cheer!
