Setting aside that any spec can get to 85 without much effort nowadays, I'm not really sure why you're so dismissive of Affliction leveling in Cata. Even with the revamp of the old world, the vast majority of quests in the game are still of the "kill x of these mobs" or "bring me twenty bear asses" varieties. Running around like a maniac dotting everything in sight is still the most efficient way to take care of those quests as a lock, and Affliction still does that better than the other two specs. Glyph of Soul Swap makes it even better. Demo can do it also, but falls off a bit in this regard once you hit Outland and mobs start having more HP (AoEing down a group to finish it off is always an option though)."but what about dungeons" isn't even a legit argument, tbh, not now that dual spec is so cheap and accessible. I use Affliction to plow through quests and then switch to Demo when my random pops. Problem solved. (I know Destro is technically better but my main's a Fire Mage, I don't need a low rent version when I have the real thing. :P)I do have to say that I miss Felguard/Siphon Life leveling like you would not believe. I did that with my first lock in Wrath and it was so much more fun to me compared to leveling a lock now.
