I honestly don't understand how so many Demonology locks are against the use of GoSac. Having a pet stun doesn't seem to be worth losing the benefits of GoSac. When running with GoSup and a Wrathguard, my Wrathguard will total at about 10% - 20% of my total damage depending on the fight. When running with GoServ, I get a high burst, but when the player does not die from my first burst I am having to wait 2 min to get my Grimoire: Imp back, or have a weaker pet with no extra pet on my next burst. I personally am not a fan of Demonology pets to begin with. They have a chance of dying, being feared / CC'd, they do very low damage when compared to a class such as a hunter's pet even with Supremacy 20% increase and mastery build 30% increase to damage. Due to demonology being so dependant on their burst, I would much rather have a 25% increase to my damage than have a pet bladestorm / stun someone. GoServ could be viable, but I would like to have high damage burst's every 1 min over every 2 min. Also, running with GoSac helps a big Demonology issue which is sustained damage. Having a 25% damage increase to (basically) every spell we use helps your sustained damage, as well as your burst. This may be something I am just very bias on, but I have found the GoSac play style to be a much better way of doing PvP / arenas. I do not like looking at the other side of the room and seeing my pet feared into a wall, or having to hope he doesn't die after I use my instant respawn or wonder why he isn't Axe Tossing when I push Command Demon. The way I have been playing is with Glyph of Eternal Resolve, Imp Swarm and Healthstone. (No need for Demon Training with no demons
) Talents being DR, Shadowfury (no pet stun to diminish with), Soul Link, Blood Horror, GoSac and AD. Reasoning begind GoSac + Soul Link is due to DR + Healthstone glyph doing a ridiculous amount of healing when needed, prefer it over SacPac or DB any day.
Play style has just been HoG / Doom main target, corruption / CotE everyone, use MC procs / shadowbolt on CD. Heavy on the CC's. Burst when team is ready and spam ToC til' they die. With this set-up I run full mastery > crit > haste build. I have tried all the others that locks are talking about, and always come back to mastery build.
The only time I find myself out of this build is when I decide to run GoSup with the comp I am playing. I honestly don't understand why GoSac is looked down upon by so many locks. I honestly believe it is just as viable, if not more viable than either of the other choices. My choice on teir 5 talents would be GoSac > GoSup > GoServ.
Either way, I am open to all who oppose and would be willing hear other's opinions.
