    What spec will you play in Mythic BFA after Demo nerfs 12/3 ?

    I want to be ahead of my fellow locks in the guild, and considering changing spec now that Demo gets a huge nerf 12/3.

    What ya think ?

    Demo is just going from blatantly OP to still being pretty great in mythic+. It's not suddenly trash.

    Probably destro, flashpoint is good times.

    Destro mostly in the raid, Demo in dungeons

    But how does this pan out?

    It would be pretty expensive to reforge azerite gear each time you change from raid to m+?

    Or do you talk about having 2 sets of gear, which would be annoying to farm for atm.

    Well I only mythic raid 2 days a week (I play whatever in heroic) and I only change 2 pieces currently and that will only get better as I get more gear from the raid and vendor. Now though I may decide to change specs a little more in the raid as well.

    The reforge cost halves every 24 hours. I am currently on 80g and I don't need to change again until Thursday.

    So for me it's easy. People do seem to get into trouble with it somehow though.

    Going to be Demo in m+, Aff in raids. Aff I just find very easy for progression. I tried destro; just didn't feel very fun to me.

    Same prob. I just hate how dependent Affliction is on Darkglare. You feel so "meh" outside of that 3 min cd

    Yah agreed. I'd love it if Darkglare was on a 2 min cd to help with that; getting stacks of ID added some feeling of usefulness for me. I know I can burn a target if i need to. But ya otherwise it's not the most exciting. One of the things I love about demo is that 1.5 min CD. It's great.

    Destro on the other hand; I got bored by it within the week. And i don't think a shorter cd would help me personally with boredom

    Honestly a big factor why I like demo is that my filler is a significant part of my damage. Shadowbolt with affliction is just pathetic.

    Huge Nerf? No.

    EP was rediculously OP. Demo is still an M+ dps machine and brings it in line with other specs for raids

    Yeah, that's one thing I always tell aff locks looking to improve is to make sure their cooldown windows with darkglare on are ON POINT, because outside of that we're largely just coasting.

    And the funny part is it's still decent. It was THAT overpowered. Too bad it brings zero utility.

    My sim dps went down 4k. On Oppulence it was definitely noticeable, I was usually #1 or #2, but I couldn’t even break top 5 with the nerf. I ended up just going back Affliction after a couple wipes. It’s pretty bad.

    They should have fixed the pet bugs only and then later lay on the EP nerf if necessary, but they don’t know to nerf and buff classes properly.
