    I'm toying with the idea of switching to my lock and it's because demo seems fun. Numbers are irrelevant here. I'm giving up the main I've had since vanilla because of playstyle issues, so I'm looking for something that gives me enjoyment. My guild isn't cutting edge, once I figure out a spec I'll be contributing in a solid manner regardless, so it's all about the fun for me.

    Ah the old it's only alpha, that turns into it's only beta don't panic guys, which in turn becomes still a week to go and we're due a balancing pass to ok so it went live but they'll fix it soon and finally we can't expect them to tweak the numbers until after the first raid

    Aff's been OP all tier there's no way they'll leave it like that.

    Aff's been OP for 2 raids now there's no way they'll leave it like that.

    Oh.

    Weren't Locks already FOTM? Or does BFA overhaul them pretty much to be a new class entirely?

    Their DPS was insane at one point. Could've sworn they were already there.

    Demonology is amazing on Beta, why didn't I try this earlier.. Commanding an army of demons is pretty much fun, but yes I didn't play this on live (only Affli).

    Numbers might be a "bit" off though. I was fighting a rare last night. I just popped my cooldowns and the mob just vanished into thin air in couple of seconds. Like *poof* and it was gone. Sure it was a weaker rare meant for soloing but at this state I'm absolutely certain that Demonology can solo 3-man Quest "rares" as easily.

    I can't wait them getting nerfed to the ground though..

    Already happened. Every class can absolutely annihilate those rares by the way, they don't even fight back.

    Coming from a long term mage main, that'd be mages my dude. I love locks and will be switching back to one for the first time since MOP, but Mages are and always will be Blizzard's poster child.

    Remember when destro locks were supposed to get that awesome cooldown that lit you on fire? Yea..

    I looked at warcraftlogs statistics and affli was 2nd highest overall dps while demo was 2nd highest at pure boss damage. That includes bosses like Ursoc.

    Those warlocks really had a difficult time....

    Locks were complete garbage at the beginning of Legion, people wouldn't shut up about how crap they were. Very few people enjoyed how any of the specs played. Affliction and Destruction especially - the difference between those specs pre- and post-7.1.5 is like night and day. It makes no sense to say they're Blizzard's poster childs. This isn't so much about damage (Destro had good numbers, Demo was always chilling there right behind them) as much as the actual gameplay.

    I agree that Mages have been able to comfortably sit on their thrones since the beginning of Vanilla, because immunities, mobility, and bloodlust apparently weren't enough reasons to bring them to a raid, so now they get to give Int buffs as well.

    uh no that would be restoration, guardian druids, mages, warriors and beast mastery.

    Agree on restoration, but guardian is never strong towards the end of an expac. Mages though, were the teachers pet until end of draenor when arcane mages were just ridiculous. I agree though that the entire legion belonged to warlocks, but I thought that was just because of the flavour... didnt expect that they would continue to be top class in bfa...

    Just wait until we get nerfed again.

    The concept of demo is nice. There is an audience for it for sure. Same for Affliction.
    But lock in general seems very boring to play.

    Honestly, appart from DemonHunters, Monks, Warriors, Rogues.. other classes seem really boring.
    BM Hunter is alright, maaayybe mage if i'm being generous.
    But Warlock? Priest? I feel like a handicapped sloth.

    I dont think Lock will be FOTM. Even when they become OP they are still never the most played class. Personally, I see Rogues being FOTM esp with Warfronts being important at the start. Druid will also be played a lot for stealth, Boomy changes are nice and they have good CC, self heals and lots of mobility esp in open world. BFA Melee is still very strong compared to Casters in PVP.

    Demo was super strong at Legion prelaunch but the playstyle was terrible so not many switched. Playstyle is a lot better for BFA but most people would rather just play BM Hunter if they are going to play a pet class.
