I am getting lots of snarky comments about my low DPS and so would like a few pointers. Thanks for being nice!

I was prepared to say "Log a raid please, 5 mans won't show anything." But you logged Rokmora and he is a good boss to log, even though you were in weird talents because of 5 man.

Somethings are still messed up since it is a short fight and a 5 man, but there are some major issues I see that can be addressed.

Doom uptime is horrid, 76% is more than 20% to low.

Use of Shadow Flame was very  poor, only cast it 4 times and never held/maintained 3 stack with it. Shadow Flame is a small ST DPS gain if used perfectly and a major DPS loss if used incorrectly, I highly recommend not taking it until you are ready to perfect the finest points of Demo.

1 cast of Deadstalkers is terrifyingly low.

1 cast of TKC is low.

 

I see Thal'kie's Discord in your logs, I have never seen that before. I had to try and remember what it was when I finally remembered that it is the 3rd Gold Trait. If you have that trait, you didn't take the best path with your traits by a long shot. If you're at or under about 20 or so traits, I would recommend resetting and using the path listed in the Demo guide.

I reread the guide.

I adjusted talents and spell rotation. I currently have 23 traits, so have paused before refunding artifact power. Some of the efforts have paid off, leading me to a significant gain, I appreciate your time and advice.

      Hi, This is about Ice Veins Demonology 100 talent discussion. I'm greatly confused about this, since I can't see any synergy between Ascendance and Soul Conduit. If anyone could clarify this. I've already thought about it having something to do with summons. But it has to do with DE so yeah. Simply can't see the synergy with theese two together.
      Copied right from the 100 talent discussion from Icy Veins:
       Soul Conduit is the best option for single target and light cleave and should be your go-to for most encounters. This talent is only worthwhile if using  Thal'kiel's Ascendance.

      Hello All. I've been searching for days with no luck, wondering what the general consensus is on the route we will be taking on our way to Concordance of the Legionfall. My current thoughts are 1/1 Swarm of the black harvest (increase damage by 10% and stamina by 10%) ->  4/4 Infernal Furnace (Increases damage dealt by your wild imps' firebolt by 10%) -> The Doom of Azeroth (10% Doom Damage... with Kazzak leg belt) then continuing on new traits towards concordance of the legionfall. If anyone knows a way to run numbers on this route or anyone has already done it please let me know :). Thanks all.

      I understand the playstyle of pre patch demo, getting out as many demonbolts as possible, HoGing, then using Demonic Empowerment. However, since HoG has a slight travel time from the initial cast to when the imps actually register as down is it more beneficial to HoG, Demonbolt, THEN Demonic Empowerment? I know maintaining Demonic Empowerment is essential so Imps get as many casts as possible towards the 4 set proc, but if you follow a HoG with Demonic Empowerment are those Imps actually getting the empowerment if you're at high haste levels?

      Hey guys, I'm looking for help to improve my DPS in our Mythic Raid. Last night I felt like I was underperforming much. I especially look for advice for my Single Target Damage.

      In comparison with my Heroic-Kills I felt like I was really doing bad:

      Hey Guys. After the recent nerf to demonbolt, i feel like everything changed for me. I'm still trying to adapt to using demonic fury without having DS up (which is hard for me for some reason). Do you just launch a few Soul fires while i form from like 950 fury to 500 fury and then back to regening?
       
      Also my opener is fucked up
       
      I prepot, precast Soul fire,  HoG, corruption, Grimoire: doomguard, darksoul, Shard of nothing, HoG, meta morph, doom, spam soul fire if procs, else touch of chaos.
       
      Then back to spamming shadow bolt untill i have a bunch of fury and molten core procs, then into form and launch them, with cooldowns if ready/appropiate, and then back to spamming shadowbolt and HoG
       
      Do you ever Chaos wave single target if the target isnt going to die before HoG dot can tick out?
