Zagam, your input is extremely appreciated, thanks man!
One last thing though, with regard to procs.
As with affliction it is bad for dps to use haunt with no intellect procs (I only use it when I have 2 or 3 of the following: jade spirit, lightweave, light of the cosmos)
Are there any demonology specific spells that are unopportune to use without intellect procs?
Or is it just metamorphisis?
I realise I could probably save myself a lot of time by reading the icy veins demo guide more intently but I found with affliction only skilled player input (evrelia) really helped me play affliction to a higher standard.
Once more thanks so much for your advice!
Well, with Affliction it's not so much "Don't Haunt with no INT procs" as it is "Don't Haunt when you don't have uber dots up on the target".
As for Demonology, you've basically got it right. Try to use multi proc scenarios to shed some Demonic Fury and to extend the duration of your Doom through Pandemic. You can't really worry too much about the dot power of Corruption because Touch of Chaos messes with it so much, but *definitely* try to maintain the highest power Doom that you can for as long as possible. With the current 4 piece and Pandemic you can ensure that your Doom is always empowered by Dark Soul, which is pretty fancy. =)
Long story short, there is no "Haunt" type ability to worry about with Demonology. Just don't waste Demonic Fury when you don't have procs or Dark Soul up.
As you get more comfortable with the spec you'll realize that you don't *really* need to dance around the 800 Demonic Fury limit that people like to suggest. Even with 200 DF at the start of the fight and popping all of my shit I can *almost* be in demon form through the entire duration of Dark Soul. Imp Swarm helps a lot and I'm sure once I start using Grimoire of Service it will be even easier.
