Base Spec Changes for Patch 9.1
Best Talents in Patch 9.1 for Demonology Warlock
Best Legendary in Patch 9.1 for Demonology Warlock
New covenant Legendaries do not seem to be very competitive for Demonology.
Wilfred's Sigil of Superior Summoning is continuously trending upwards as the best single- and 2-target Legendary option by a long shot, due how powerful Demonic Consumption is in relationship with stamina scaling.
Implosive Potential is still the best option in multi-target unless priority damage is needed. Grim Inquisitor's Dread Calling remains a solid generic option, offering flexibility in mixed scenarios at the expense of a worse performance compared to Wilfred's Sigil of Superior Summoning and Implosive Potential in their respective niches.
Best Covenant in Patch 9.1 for Demonology Warlock
Necrolord with Heirmir offer a competitive option to Niya for Demonology, but ultimately Night Fae have the luxury of 3 desirable Soulbinds that works with all 3 spec, whereas Necrolord mostly cater towards Demonology and Destruction players.
