i noticed that almost all the threads here are about afflic/destro locs
very few ppl here comment about full demo locks and i think its a shame
as the only lock in my guild i chose demo to boost the raid with the 10% uniq demo buff, and you know what? i enjoy play it so much !
on patchwork i always on the top 3 doing easy 4.5+ k (and that without having an ele shaman a priest that can give buffs that can boost it higher ) and our guild had no problem to take him down under 3 minute to get the achievement.
i use the full 51 demo 20 destro talent points since i found out that if you are in a good guild having the burst damage u get from Metamorphosis is better then the 5% crt,
i use Metamorphosis straight when the boss fight start and then again when the CD is up
I get crazy dps if I pop it on heroism and drink speed potion, if my trinket pop I can spam SB every second and hit 8-12+ k for each bolt.
I know that affliction lock can do better – in theory ..but if you in a good guild that kills the boss’s very fast like my guild that clear naxx in last then 3 hours , it is very hard to get the afflict spec to full potential since affliction need time to build up the dps + both afflict and destro have more complicated spell rotation that make life hard and if u missed something it fuck up the rotation.
Now from all the bits and peaces that I gather up its look like Demo locks going to be much more respected and have much more locks turning to demo , Because this speck is going to be boosted a lot more and may be the top dpsers in almost any situation-if what I read below is true and Metamorphosis is getting +40% to damage instead of +20% that is very OP and with the improved felgurd glyph and improved fel armor it will be a winner.
And did I mentioned that demo locs have the best chance in BG to escape melee?(escape not duelling them I not crazy) fear is a fail coz every class have talants/trinkets that just cancel it and if u get stun at the start its usually bye bye unless u are doing the following :
first u pop demonic circle preferably in an higher platform then jump down , then u stand and dps then sooner or later a melee will come and stun u – but then u use the felgurd to stun and use the Metamorphosis/trinket/human spirit to brake free and use the demonic circle to disappear from harm way , 99% of the times the melee will give up and look for another target (usually he will also be a bit bussy with the felgurd that stayed bihined) then and you jump down and keep dpsing .
