    Does Anyone Realize the True Potential of Grimoire of Sacrifice?

    Let me illustrate (only for destruction, maybe applicable to demo too):

    1) You start off with a Succubus.
    2) You seduce a target and burst him down.
    3) You seduce a 2nd time, and burst him more.
    4) You seduce a final 3rd time, and due more damage.
    5) You use Sacrificial Pact on your Succubus.
    6) You use Grimoire of Sacrifice to sacrifice your Succubus.
    7) Enemy CCs you, you use Unbound Will.
    8) You load up Dark Misery.
    9) You shadowfury on him and begin nuking.
    10) You now have +30% crit chance and +30% dmg and 2% HP per 5 sec regen for 15 secs, with a 200000HP undispellable shield. Do whatever you want with this, go nuking. You are essentially an Arcane Powered mage, with Hunter Spirit Bond, 5 Power Word: Shields, and +30% crit.
    11) You instant resummon pet later if needed.

    3) You blood fear target.
    4) Kill pet instantly using Grimoire of Sacrifice.
    5) Quickly instant resummon pet at 100% HP.
    6) You now have 90+% dmg mitigation.
    Just in that example, you don't need GoS to do that.
    Each spec already has a way to instant summon a pet with a 1min cd (Soulburn, Flame of Xoroth, 250Fury one in demon form which is not very convenient btw). And you don't really want Soul Link AND Grimoire of Sacrifice, these talents kinda work against each other.

    Ok you edited, nvm then

    Did you read his thread from shadow priest forums? I'm going to quote him twice:

    4) You then go OOM because you couldn't get a single Chaos Bolt off, rendering you completely useless.
    Fixed. Have you actually tested a warlock on beta? Or are you just reading changes and coming to wild generalizations.

    I stopped playing WoW since TBC.

    I never had either a Warlock nor a Shadow Priest.

    I had a warrior and mage only, till level 70.

    Gotcha.
