This is not the "come here to ask us how to play with demons" thread, it is the "come here to read about how to play with demons" thread. Get to readin'.
I am currently running a 53/0/18 Affliction spec without any pet enhancing talents.
As you can see I dropped Nightfall and the Demonic Power talent for the extended range on both affliction and destruction, as the Spreadsheet told me that Nightfall was only worth around 50 dps for 2 points and I wanted to use the Felhunter.
I am now reconsidering my spec, planning to put a second point into Intensity as spell pushback seems to be quite disturbing on some fights in ulduar. As a consequence I am going to drop the Range talents again and this is where the Spreadsheet starts to get me confused.
The latest version of the sheet tells me, that the Imp is (way) better dps than Succubus and Felhunter, even without any pet enhancing talents and becomes even better as I start to put points into Demonic Power. Is there anything wrong with the spreadsheet? Maybe it's just my fault and I am making mistakes on the pet dps section, but I am quite sure that I considered all melee dps buffs and debuffs correctly.
The whole Spreadsheet thing throws up 2 questions to me:
1. Is the imp the best pet for Affliction (regardless of management issues, I always pick the harder way if I am rewarded for it)?
2. If I use the Imp, is the Glyph of Imp better than the Glyph of Curse of Agony? The Spreadsheet tells me to use the imp glyph, but I just can't believe that nobody else has come to that conclusion yet and therefore think that I am making mistakes.
p.s.: this would be my new spec using the imp and maybe the glyph of imp instead of the CoA one. 53/0/18
