So, I am player potentially looking to play WoW again (quit at start of MoP) and be looking to raid at a decently hardcore level.

I was a warlock main before and played mostly affliction during dragon soul, a spec I have always liked.

I've tried to catch up somewhat with the changes and how warlocks perform in beta but it's a drag to read up on all of it.

So my questions to do you are 1: How are the warlocks specs in terms of fun now? 2: How are the specs doing in legion, are they competitive?

I don't care at all how locks are in pre-patch and knowing blizzard I very much doubt they'll rebalance much before raids go live in legion which makes the beta information valuable to me.
