Wow, still ranked #23 even though that is from January 3. I think I was just trying it out, too.
My imps are hitting for about 13.9k (14k for rounding purposes) way back then...probably around 15-16% mastery and definitely over 20k spell power. With that formula, it's saying it shoulda been hitting for 19k at least...seems fishy. If that's the new PTR formula, HOLY HELL WOOOOO lol

damn zagam ur getting me really excited for this patch and its still 2 week i just wanna go demo now hehe. Green fire + demo/destro buffs + cool looking raid? WoW is feeling pretty good right now.
Hoping you do more simming + BiS stuff closer to live, really enjoying reading urs and others theorycrafting etc
also whats the best way to do reforging as demo at the moment? I'm trying to find a decent idea of how to go crit and when to go mastery but either the icy veins says put all about the same aswell as haste or reforgelite tries to put everything as crit. i have 490ilvl and i can hit the 4717 haste breakpoint as affliction.
All the secondaries are currently pretty close. I'd just let Zagam do his thing and find out. =)
Also Zagam, the most recent PTR changes didn't put the Shadowflame portion of HoG through. May want to see if that's actually the case.

Honestly, it felt too OP to see all those buffs. Shadowflame wouldn't really contribute much to single target, but a 15% buff to Shadowflame would be a lot. I was doing 500k+ on trash. Anyways, for analysis sake, here are my logs of first half of MSV and HoF in LFR. I'm going to try to get into some other crap tonight, so I'll keep things update. Long story short...Demo is really fun and isn't that bad. Stat reforging is still Haste = Mastery because Crit scaling is garbage and none of my gear has it.
How did Service feel for you? How did you use it? Did you pop it along with Imp Swarm every other Dark Soul CD or did you do something different?
Also, Blizz has already admitted that some of the balance passes they made for damage tweaks were a bit much (largely DK), but we weren't on that list so..... woo?!
I have no doubt you could have done much better than you did, demonology isn't a spec that you just fit right back into. It's really sensitive to playstyle. I'm getting pretty excited, don't nerf me bro!
It's funny though. I started out raiding as demonology and I felt like I had a really good grasp on it. I thought *affliction* was the pain in the ass spec to play, but it's really pretty straight forward. "Derp derp, make sure you make storng dots last long." Now, looking again towards demonology I'm remembering all the little quirks and things that I never really ironed out on my first time through. It'll be a challenge to really show this spec off I think.

Affliction scales WAY better than the other two specs so i think it's going to be the top spec even after the patch hits.
Keep in mind that not only did Demonology and Destruction get base damage increases to their commonly used spells, but they also received increased spell power scaling to them as well. So, that may skew how you feel.

- Grimoire of Sacrifice (Affliction) You sacrifice your demon to gain one of its abilities, increase the power of many of your single target spells by
45%35% and regenerate 2% of maximum health every 5 sec.

Damn blizzard, why nerfed Sacrifice so hard? Even Service will be better than this piece of shit.
For Destro is worse, will screw the burst on PVP while some classes get some buffs like DK and Mage, OMFG WHY?!
Damn, why som much hate on Warlocks.
