Affliction hits a lot harder in full gear so just keep getting points. On TR I can practically solo something when I get a good set up, unlike the frustration of live with perfect setup and their hp doesn't move. I have 72% mastery with a shaman so I'm guessing we scale a bit better with our extra 3k spell power than most classes.

Would love to but on my backstreet server no one will play with a lock lol

Eh ? The spell only lights up for four seconds and you have a short duration buff. The shard you gain is permanent though, just ignore the proc.

The free haunt has to be used within 4 (5?) sec.

It's not a free haunt, it's a "free soul shard" that for some reason makes haunt light up, but can be used for any soulburn spell. If you cast haunt with the nightfall proc up it uses that shard.

What, really? Are you sure? That seems so stupid.

Afaik, some time in the beta it used to be "haunt costs no shard for the duration of nightfall buff". That's probably why it lights up

The question should have been "destro or demo" since aff is dead RIP affliction

I faced some WLS today and been quite nice to have my mage getting oneshotted in one global by some 200k crit of a warlock that popped demonsoul. I really think Demo is the way to go this season but it needs a nerf, those crit numbers remind me of a warrior.

Bind an interrupt. Use it once per 2min.

aff feels extremely weak right now. the only real damage/pressure happens when you're channeling mg or using haunt and i really don't think that's the right direction for the spec.

You can get 200k Chaos Waves if you use Grimoire of Sacrifice with Dark Soul and on use trinket, and you crit.

(use Sac with Dark Soul, then resummon pet after you're done bursting)

It increases damage for Hand of Guldan and shadow bolt outside meta form, so when u go in meta form, these 2 abilites transfer into chaos wave/touch of chaos.
