"We don't know (as of writing this) if abilities that granted demonic fury outside of Metamorphosis will spend fury inside or not. I'd like to see the ability to generate some fury while still in Metamorphosis but have the spending or draining of fury eventually outweigh the gain. This way, warlocks could adapt Metamorphosis's timing to the encounters, stretching out Metamorphosis for only a little bit or as long as possible, depending on the raid's timing of specific phases or mechanics." We all said this about Eclipse too. Boy did that turn out to be completely not fun. Gaming a resource system to fit the encounter is one of those things that's great fun in theory, but then you realize all of the encounters are pretty much the same and you just end up with the same basic rotation as everyone else, only it's far more annoying. There's always -something- that makes you hold on to your resource.

I think it's still different from Eclipse because holding onto Eclipse doesn't move the balance bar point. I imagined being able to generate fury in Meta, but that there would be a net loss of fury at all times. Holding off from generating demonic fury would just deplete your fury faster (net loss is bigger), which would allow yourself to get into Meta sooner. It's like normal Ultraxion with getting Fading Light with plenty of time before Hour versus getting a Fading Light back to back with an Hour following. In the first situation, you press Heroic Will with as little left as possible so you're DPSing as log as possible. But in the second situation, you *need* Heroic Will up for Hour, so you press it for Fading Life at just under 5s of Fading Light. Sure, you do no DPS for the 4 seconds you're out of the twilight realm, but you can bet your Heroic Will CD is back up for Hour when you get out.I imagine a Meta like this, where warlocks can stagger when they get in and out of Meta by 1-5 seconds. If any more time than that is needed, I blame the warlock for wrong timing of starting Meta in the first place.
