    If they launch WOD with "Demonic Resources" talent the dumbness of the spec will reach over 9000

    im fairly sure they wont launch WoD with the "current" implementation of chaotic resources as it is quite useless in many situations IMO, atleast the destro version is crap for anything that isnt purely single target, teh afflic version seem to cost 2 soul shards for +15% dot dmg boost for 30 secs which is a pretty steep cost and the demo version doesnt really change all that much, you'd prolly still stance dance since HoG is better than chaos wave afaik and the reduced dmg in meta doesnt make that too attractive if you ask me, the talent certainly seems very lackluster to me but that might just be me.

    You do realize that there are people who enjoyed that specific playstyle, right? ISF Affliction was one of the most entertaining things ever. Sure Shadow Embrace was annoying and I'm glad they removed it, but saying that a dot class is better of without tab-dotting is just plain silly.
    So you not only assume that most of us haven't played back then, but also state that no one enjoyed it more then MoP Affliction, because you didn't? Swell.

    Furtheremore I doubt anyone has anything against Soul Swap, the spell was fine back when it had a cooldown and allowed you to swap targets instantly.
    The annoying part about this subject is the fact that nowdays you press one button several times to put your dots up on a certain amount of targets. I play a dot class and I don't want to multidot, so instead of swaping specs so I won't have to I want blizzard to give me one button to rule them all.
    That's not a good design, but exactly what you mentioned regarding nerfing Demonology - straight up dumbing something down to appeal the masses.

    Look what they did to Demo in MoP. They turned a pretty boring cooldown based spec into something with depth. With Affliction they did the exact opposite.

    What? As a guy who plays a class that has had BOTH of its DPS specs at or near the bottom of the last 3 raid tiers I can't understand how you can justify being so much better at both dealing damage and mitigating incoming damage than everyone else.

    I think the way the dots work in WOD will need some revamp on Affliction.
    Destro probably will get some nerf in how mastery or AOE works.
    DEMO is fine.
    Demo is not fine. It has severe Fury issues, which make the spec outright boring to play.

    Fix the fury, heck make Doom *alway* spawn Imps, that's all it would need to not be horrifically sluggish.

    I really don't want them to dumb down anything - especially when it comes to the demonology specc.

    That makes you hybrid. Every one of them brings some raid cooldowns, dps or healing wise. Except if you're DK, then yeah, they kinda messed up on them (except Grips, though on limited fights. Maybe AMZ but dunno if they really have good usage this tier). Personal survival don't really matter that much if every damage is tailored around the least survival class, or unless you can stack so many of durable players that dropping a healer is possible. I could work with lower durability, but Blizz can't seem decide, the patch they say we are too durable that they cut Soul Leech and 10% from fel armor, they add Shadowburn to SL, glyph for UR to 10% all-time reduction and make SL work as another 20% reduction.

    There's no reason to do any of this.
    Also, more on topic, why would Warlocks get nerfed? It's very middle of the pack this patch.
    Deathknight's do it using disease, blood and the power of the unholy. Warlocks do it with dark demons by their side. Mages do it with summoned arcane powers. Druids do it using the forces of nature. Rogues do it through stealth, poison's, shadows and....from behind. Paladins do it by calling to the light for aid. Shamans do it with the help of the elements. Priests do it through the holy light.
    But warriors....
    Warriors just fucking do it.

    I didn't, and I still enjoy SB:SS as well. It's a tool for certain situations, and useful at that. I vividly remember the time before where my ramp up time on targets was about half an iceage. I like having the choice to come out swinging as Affliction, and the choice to hardcast my dots when I'm saving up Shards.

    Removing SB:SS is also not magically going to make certain less able Warlocks play the class better cause they are now forced to hard cast.

    Yes, it's fine, was just OP and now it's average like most of specs in the game.

    Excess of Fury for Demo just make the spec kinda OP since in Meta we do TONS of dmg.

    Ok, it's completely un-fun now is what I meant. I'm constantly feeling starved for resources, so it just feels slow and clunky now. I could reforge to 14k haste to speed it up, but then my Destro set will be gimped out of ~20k dps just to do that.

    Smoother fury regen, balance the DPS around that.

    Manage your resources properly, you won't feel starved. The spec is fine, it's just not overpowered anymore.

    and you do realize that there were ppl that didnt enjoy that particular playstyle, hell having to use a direct dmg spell as filler for a dot spec was the most moron thing ever, never made sense to me, i just dont think you get the concept of soul swap and putting a cooldown on it would go against the whole concept of that particular spell, soul swap in its current form is as good as it gets. and hoenstly if you press that one button so many times you're doing something wrong, yes, you should use it a lot, but most of the times you hard cast your dots.

    and you're sorta contradicting yourself, a dot class and multidotting go hand in hand, you cant have 1 without the other, its a dot spec's strength.

    and i never said demo should get nerfed, i said it should be "dumbed" down a bit to reduce the skillcap a bit for new players.

    I'm not well geared. I simply don't have fury regen. It's not about resource management there. Yes, if I gain another 20 ilvl I'll be fine but I hate specs having playstyle issues at lower gear for no actual reason.

    Nope. Played a disc priest in BC, switched to lock in wotlk.

    my statement stands, I love SB:SS, and I hope blizz do not take it away.

    Either fix Gateway, or take it out. The 100yrd despawn range is beyond stupid for PvE.
