About grimoiries, from my perspective, keep using GoSup on Imerseus, protectors (afflic is better anw), sha (adds die fast in normal mode), Malkorok, Thok (imp for AoE dispell), Nazgrim (pets don't give rage), etc.
EDIT: I told you all that considering 3 things:
First; your progression, you're going through normal mode.
Second; your composition. Strategy tends to change a lot. Iron Jugernaut I went GoSac with SacPact for bombs.
Third; considering the fights on orgrimar, they're almost all add fights, and the better you use chaos bolts and shadowburn, the more impact GoSac will have.
I ran your profile again in cleave fights and AoE fights and mastery is the way to go, I'd not change anything (number wise, might consider chaging gems to expertise) considering your offspec is demon.

I can't believe I'm arguing over something silly as an opener, though. It's just surprising to me that people care so little about Backdraft as a whole.
I don't think people don't care about backdraft, it's just that in a situation where you have such short procs (KTT/BBoY) you really want to squeeze out that second chaos bolt before it falls off. Now if my KTT didn't proc until 5 seconds in or so then I'd throw out a 4th incinerate.

I usually just hit buttons until bigger numbers show up.
I've found the best results (as troll) with: Pre-cast incinerate & immolate, 1 conflag, 1 rain of fire, 1-2 incinerates and 2 chaos bolts. Both CB's hit in the 10 sec window of toxic power, and in times with multiple targets (Paragons as an example) you could just replace one incinerate with an additional conflag and cast 3 CB's before toxic power falls off.
/edit: And also in the 4-set window.
How accurate are Simc results for destro? I noticed that I am supposed to beat our second highest simmed raid member by 12k in pure ST fights, but Usually it is a really close call, I also am the only player in the guild playing at 300+ ms.
Destruction definitely sims closest out of the three specs, just remember that a patchwerk sim never has to deal with mechanics whilst trying to fire off that mega chaos bolt.
Starting garrosh next reset, any tips for how to deal with p1?
Is it important to burn down the adds asap or would it be better for progression to only use them for embers and focus on the boss?
We had a rule on progress where " only aoe if the end result is the same single target dps as if you hadnt aoe'd ( or very close) or if you would even gain a single target dps increase. On 1 night we even had 4 destro warlocks so the rule was that as soon as they got to 40% everyone else stopped aoe'ing so that the warlocks could easily shadowburn using all 6 charges .
On farm it is pretty much a fact that everyone goes full crazy aoe mode and the first wave of mobs are dead in like 5 seconds

For later phases there's not much optimization beyond using Immo/Incinerates for Havoc cleave for the single target increase on the weapons.
