They effectively killed Demo while affliction was even stronger and that haunt nerf doesn't affect much. It's funny tho.
every patch/fix i see
-ice lance: damage increased by 900%, and now have a chance to delete an enemy account
-random spell warlock nerfed to 30% and now your spec is trash, reroll pls
p.s. immolate buff is live? I can't see the difference...
Glad we got our Thok Kill yesterday and managed to make use of Demonology one last time </3.
Personally I'm glad about the UVLS-nerf. Demo being viable on its own or not is another topic, but I'm happy to see that RNG-bot die. I think I'll build a mastery-heavy set of affliction gear with the option to reforge below 10k haste for Destro Offspec. You won't be able to have perfect stats for Destro and Affliction at the same time, but in the cases where you really use your offspec, you don't need perfect stats anyway, because you usually switch to offspec in order to exploit some overpowered mechanics.
In case demonology is no longer wanted in raids when I hit max level, is there any other spec with warlock that is as mobile? I dont like staying still to cast at all.
im happy with the uvls nerf, ofc id need to replace my own uvls now and replace it fast but it was really a trinket that should never have been brought into the game or atleast not as a rppm trinket. it should have been a on-use trinket with a 2-3 min cd and the nerf to wild imps was just uncalled for, it was really the nerf the "broke the camel's back" and i cant see demo being use much at all after this.
i dont' understand "blizzard philosophy" (lol)... a spec in the game is very powerful with a trinket > nerfed trinket. Ok.
But, WHY blizzard nerf trinket AND nerf an ability? This is a abnorm nerf to demo PVP...

You guys must be keeping an eye on very different things than me, because the only fights I've seen anyone play demo to great effect on was spoils and thok. Literally every other fight in the place is better served playing aff and the only way you see decent numbers in demo is by aoe padding. And if you want to pad the aoe meters destro was already the stronger sustained aoe spec in ToT, and with the 15% buff to incinerate and the 20% nerf to hellfire the gap got bigger.
Vigil locks have been affi on every fight we've downed so far ( 10/14 heroic ), and we're seeing great results. But may the demo we all came to know and love to hate ( due to UVLS rng ) RIP.
I personally don't pay attention attention to BL so they got me there.
