You're missing some information.
While gear level won't make a tremendous difference, a difference it does, indeed, make. But most importantly is your specialization you are talking about and what fights specifically you are mentioning. Certain fights with controlled periods of burst will be different than long term sustained single target DPS.
Affliction: Grimoire of Sacrifice, no debate
Demonology: Service or Supremacy, depending on fight
Destruction: Supremacy or Sacrifice, both are close
My apologies, I'm demo warlock, leveling up at the moment *88*, should be hitting 90 today, planning to hit heroics the very moment my gear allows me to que. But either way, I tend to be mindful of the DPS I am pulling and what others are pulling. Score at the moment is 404, pulling on a straight up DPS fight (Sha of violance for example) I can sustain 20-21k damage, if I use my cool downs correctly for burst damage (Dark soul+imps in line with a mastery trinket proc with meta) I can climb up to 30k. Fights I am currently under preforming, or at least feels like would be ones such as Master Snowdrift/Tarahn zue where I am getting around 17-19k on normally.
As you said it depends on the fight, would changing up help me any here or would sticking with Supremacy be fine for now, in your opinion. Normally I wouldn't ask about things regarding normals, but from my understanding heroics don't change anything except damage/hp so I figured it worth while to ask, since I am also planning to take this advice when I get to start raiding.
