http://wp.me/p2WM9f-o - Trinket rankings based off of BiS stat weights.
I'm not sure what you're asking for here. When people ask for trinket rankings they want rankings so they know what to roll for gear. BiS stat weights are fairly close to individual stat weights relatively just because of how stats interact with each other. You are basically being belligerent for no reason. What result are you disagreeing with specifically? Is there any trinket that is out of place that makes any of the lists posted here irrelevant?
I'm saying that the results will not be 100% accurate. That's all.
Perfect example of why "community" forums are poisonous to the health of a development team. These developers are wasting hundreds of hours trying to stem the tide of incessant bitchery that would never, ever abate so long as these entitled, unfortunate human beings don't get their way.

I got the Essence today and I spent like 2 hours in front of the dummy. It doesnt proc that often for affliction purely because it procs off of hostile damage ability LANDS. It has a 15% procchance according to blizz and in order to proc it, you have to tear your a**. Simply it either procs when you apply your dots first, or it wont proc for a long long while, so that you cant put your overpowered dots on the target directly on the pull. I tried simply anything, applying dots manually, using SB:SS, Malefic Grasp spamming for it to proc but hell, no, its just too stubborn to proc and its hard to lineup with anything, even if you track ICD's or such.
TL: DR: Sims might show that its better, but in practice, its crap, annoying, stupid.
The thing about Light of the Cosmos as demo is not the proc itself but how it procs. Since the trinket procs from dot ticks it has much better uptime for afflic than demo. Afflic averages 4.5 dot ticks per sec when channeling MG (no haste) whereas demo is only about .56 ticks per sec with a little bump to the average when Shadowflame is up. It's not uncommon for me to see my Light be off CD for upwards of 20sec before proccing again.
I'm also using basic probability. .56 proc chances per second means (.56*60)=33.4 proc chances per minute. .15 proc chance * 33.4 = 5.04 procs per min. So 60sec/5.04 procs = 11.9sec per proc average after the ICD is up.After playing every fight of the tier as Demonology, I can disagree with this. I've never seen it off CD longer than 2-3 seconds.
I believe the math is correct but correct me if I'm wrong. Personally I still use Flashfrozen as demo since I see a dps loss using a H LoC +2. Flashfrozen just lines up really well with every other DS with 4pc.
I am not sure, and I hope that I've just been unlucky and that this is incorrect, but it seems to only proc off of spell hits, which means haunt, dot application, fel flame, application of malefic grasp/drain soul and fear/banish.
2x Upg Yulon (9038.7 | 15/50 Proc Uptime) < HC 2x Upg Essence of Terror (10257.44095 | 20/105 Proc Uptime) < HC 2x Upg Light of the Cosmos (11113.11 | 20/45 Proc Uptime)
With scalefactors of:
As mentioned earlier, the uptime assumes they proc instantly, which Yulon nearly does and Essence of Terror doesn't. I can't speak for Light of the Cosmos, don't have it .
The ICD is from Ghostcrawler's official statement on trinket and enchant procs. The buff duration is from the trinket tooltip.
