"Once every 6-8 min" seems a bit excessive
I apologize if this has been asked before:
I do not want to reforge for specific fights unless we are having a dps problem (hasn't happened yet). That being the case, what would be the best stat priority to follow in order to get the best dps results across all the ToT fights?
Also a trinket question, I currently have 2, the shado pan trinket, a 2/2 upgraded H LotC, and a LFR cha ye's, which 2 would be the most beneficial you think? And, for Demo?
The only numbers I really care about are from your Megaera thing that tells effective damage, in which I still beat the other destro locks :P

I was trying to only use my havoc stacks on Immolate, Fel-flame, and then 6ish seconds later another fel flame.
Doing that I was able to keep 100% uptime of Immo on both heads, and I was decently surprised at the extra ember generation I got over using it only on Incin/Conflag.
I'm trying to figure out how good the t15 4p is for destro. It should be 8% of your incinerates give you double embers but after working it out based on some of my logs it seems you would only gain 1-2 more embers per fight which makes it seem pretty weak. I know the tier pieces are itemized pretty well but is our 4 piece really weaker than our 2 piece?
Lei Shen: the problem isn't affliction, for you, there. Aff doesn't have any bonuses I can think of that would make it good for that fight, but you're at the bottom of your group's DPS at every stage until one of the hunters dies (and your highest DPS spike is only 10-15k over what you could pull sustained). This is less likely an affliction issue, and more likely that you should get more practice if you want to play affliction on end-normal fights or heroics. I'd tell you more, but I'm short on time and a way to swap that log into English.
Picking specs by fight: there's nothing stopping any spec from being useful on pretty much every fight this tier (through normals! I have doubts Aff would be much fun on H Durumu, not sure about the others), so stick with what you play best and you should be just fine.

Thing is that affliction doesn't benefit from the T15 (Imo ofc), hence other spec bonuses are seem to be more useful.
Well srsly, 4T15 for affliction is total shit. After that Doom nerf I guess destro reforge should be fine for demo.
Need to grab tokens first.
Btw, concerning stats...
AMR tells me to refore EVERYTHING into crit.
Is it for real or it's just got bugged?

I agree. The 4piece is almost pointless for Destruction and I think Ill go for just 2set this time around and filling the other slots with items with better stats/more sockets.
If you edit the stat weights and rerun it, it will optimize around whatever stat weights you have put in there. I would imagine, the "better" way to use AMR is to use SimC on your toon with your current gear/specs and get the stat weights from there. Use those stat weights then in AMR.
But then you'll need to resim again and you'll find that the weights have all changed. (SimC is not, by definition, an optimization model (there's no heuristic solver within it to search the solution space for all possible stat weightings) so your stat weights will change based on your current stats).
I would probably go with what Zumzum said earlier:
ToT is an AOE fest, except for a few encounters. In that case Mastery will be king, while Crit/haste will lag behind (in AoE circumstances).
My guild is currently working on heroic Tortos and I can't decided which spec to choose. I'm stuck between aff and destro. Our tank kites the bats around the room, so rain of fire is useless but I do FnB immolate them, which helps alot for ember generation but I don't feel like it's performing more than say affliction, which I can just SB:SS the three turtle and keeps dots rolling on Tortos the whole time.
Without a need to kill the bats is desto and gosac/mastery stacking worthless?
I must say that using havoc on magera only for immo+2 felflames and going gosup instead of gosac pushed my dps from 120k to 150k (was still using mastery build). My ember regen was amazing. Much better than with immo+2xincis that i was using earlier.
Now im only wondering if running gosac wouldnt be more beneficial then on this fight even though my silly imp was doing 16k.
We are working on jikun now and tbh i cant decide which spec is mor suitable for the job, demo or destro? Im exclusively on nest duty.
