So warlocks will spam soulburn -> soulfire -> (soul shard returned) -> repeat?

Not so much... there's a cooldown on soulburn to begin with.

Every 45 seconds or so for destro and demo since it will be the only way to regen soul shards without drain soul or soul burn for those specs.

I mostly play affliction, but if I'm not mistaken, destro and demo would be doing soulburn-> soulfire whenever soulburn was off cooldown anyway; an instant soulfire is almost always a dps-upper. This means they won't run out of soul shards a minute and a half in; personally, I like it.Also glad they reversed the durations for demo/non demo on the 2 piece. I'd honestly thought it was a typo before, as it didn't seem to make sense giving demo a bigger bonus to the guardians when they already got one through talents.

Yes, in that we can freely use SB:SF to trigger the Spell Power increase without worrying about running out of shards. No, in that there's still a 45 second CD on SB and SF's DPET still sucks outside of Decimation so it's not like we'll be spamming SF endlessly. It does, however, make for a nice little mini CD to stack with Pots and Bloodlust, something Affliction and Destro needed badly. Demo has plenty of CD's to manage, but DS+Meta+Pot+SD:SF+Bloodlust = ZOMGJust remember to hit SB:SF -after- you pot to maximize your gains.

I don't like the reversing myself, I would rather see equal durations from the set bonus, not depending on the spec you use, as demonologys talents "only" give a 20 second buff, and with the set bonus that diminishes to a 10 second advantage for demonology, who spend talent points for it, and the spec is partly balanced around.But of course, as it's still early PTR we don't know how/if/when warlocks will change, and how this will play with possible changes
