Dec 10th 2011 10:29PM My main complaint throughout the three specs is Demonology's conflicting stat priorities with affliction and destruction. This wouldn't be a problem if demo were on the lowest rung like during WotLK, but given that it is the highest parsing spec, it makes it difficult to switch between demo and, say, destro. Both Aff and Destro require enormous amounts of haste to do the best damage, whereas demo throttles your haste at around 1584 rating (one extra tick of Immolate), so as not to have too many impending doom procs. It requires us to have two seperate sets of gear, which is hard to collect against so many other casters vying for lur phat lewtz. Other than that. I luvs me some HoG!
Oct 31st 2011 8:26PM Well, i'm hoping its definitely that pre-5.0 perspective. I think it just wasn't feasible for drain life to be filler according to the content/gear-scaling.
Oct 31st 2011 7:15PM I was thinking Malefic Grasp would actually be the new Affliction filler. Obviously incinerate is sticking around for destruction, but Shadow Bolt is more of Demonology's filler du jour than affliction's. This makes more sense when you look at the amount of locks on the forums mourning the demise of DL-Aff. I can't wait to see how the spell works in any case though =P
Oct 27th 2011 2:35PM I want Vinnie Jones (Juggernaut from X-Men), to play my Orc warlock. And make him a villain >=D
Oct 13th 2011 8:29PM It will be king, with a caveat: if AoE dps is a major factor in any fight, Affliction or Demonology will still be the choice specs. Though these are verrrrry drool-worthy.
Oct 13th 2011 12:01PM @Kac: what a tease
Oct 5th 2011 12:54PM Give me the Warlock column so I can rant about the demise of Drain-Life Affliction, and what I'd like to do to bring it back!

You have my undying thanks for an Archer reference. Keep them flowing subtly like the difference between a black turtleneck and a slightly darker black turtleneck.
