A quandary on how to maximize warlock area of effect in heroics.

Fellow Warlocks welcome a new member into your family. I've dabbled with Demonology and thrown curse words around with Affliction in Wrath of The Lich King.  

 

I'm out of practice and I'm in the process of learning everything about my favorite class all over again and my goal is to join a raiding team this expansion. The current state of warlocks is lackluster and some claim that the class itself is cursed with horrible resource mechanics and mobility problems or even outright shattered into tiny fragments and then hastily glued back together.

 

In spite of this I have chosen Demonology as my method of domination due to the on demand damage, and the perk of transforming into a demon and pretending to be a demon hunter. 

 

TLDR;

 

Now with all of that out the way I'm in a quandary over how to exactly maximize my area of effect my spells and demons. I have heard that Grimoire of Service is the superior choice in certain situations, but I'm not exactly certain as how to why this is perhaps summoning another Felguard for it's cleave?

 

In closing I've also heard that having two different Demonology set ups in heroics one for Area of Effect and the other for the Boss encounter. Am I correct in my choice of two Demonology Talent choices?

I think you mean in CMs, you can't change talents or glyphs in a CM but you can change specs so what some have done is have two specs of the same thing but one built talent and glyph wise for single target and the other for AoE.

 

In a normal or heroic 5 man you can change glyphs and talents on the fly so there isn't a need to waste your other spec.

 

 

GoServ is good because the fel guard that it summons comes out spinning, the burst AoE from this combined with HoG and your normal pets spin-to-win is very powerful.

I see thanks Lockybalboa I'll be sure to keep that in mind for the future.

      About Us:

      Our Raids:

      Raid Schedule:
      Tuesday & Thursday: 5p – 8p server (8p – 11p eastern)

      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.

      I have been studying my logs consistently for weeks now and trying to raise my dps. One of the main things I've figured out is that my DE uptime is crappy... However, I have tried my darnedest and can't seem to get it higher. I know i cast it after every demon summon/ summon combo and even downloaded an add on to help me track my demons and their empowerment status. I am at my wits end and NEED some practical advice! Also, if you see anything else that is a major issue please let me know.
