To all of you bitching about demon lock burst.

1.  Most obvious burst in the game (big demon > ret w/ wings)
2.  Clunky/sloppy burst setup, you need to get up to 2-3 stacks to do any decent damage.  Takes a while to drop buff and rebuild fury.

What these locks are most likely doing (haven't tried myself):

1.  popping dark soul + imps early, builds enough fury for 2xdemon bolts and early pressure.
2.  Waiting for fury to build up again, saving HoG charges.
3.  popping 2nd dark soul, going meta and casting 2 stack demon bolt + 2 chaos waves.

The point is watch for the second burst rotation not the first, just play against demonology like they are a ret.

Shit what do you run in 2s/3s?

How many demonbolt stacks did that take?

Edit:  Nvm I see 7 :D

In Topic: Affliction Warlock Stat Prio? Haste VS Mastery VS Versa

I think people are blowing this haste vs mastery discussion way out of proportion and only looking at extremes.  Instead of thinking "which stat do I stack" you should be thinking of which stat to avoid, i.e. crit.

Also ask yourself if you are 100% only playing afflic.  I personally like to annoy people w/ resto lock spec in 2s and bgs so mastery is more valuable to me.  Still too early in the game for multiple gear sets unless you have a fully functional gladiators sanctum.  Let's take a closer look at the gear and you will see there's only a few pieces with options:

Helm: crit/mult vs mastery/mult
Neck: mastery/mult vs crit/haste
Shoulder: crit/mastery vs haste/mult
Cloak: crit/mastery vs haste/mastery
Chest: crit/haste vs haste/mastery
Wrist: crit/mastery vs crit/multi
Hands: haste/mastery vs crit/mastery
Waist:  crit/haste vs haste/multi
Pants: mastery/mult vs crit/mult
Feet: haste/mastery vs crit/mult

I'm not looking at weapons, rings (most likely pve rings), or trinkets, that's already been covered elsewhere.  I put the no brainers in bold and left the ones that give you an option for customization.

As you can see when you put our options side by side, the only real decision is between helm, neck, and shoulder.  The other pieces there isn't really a debate if you value haste/mastery above all else.  This is why you see people using pve helms (b/c the first boss drops haste/mastery) and this is why you see people break 4pc to stack haste (which I feel is not worth it for the marginal haste & mastery gain).  

If I was a hardcore pve nerd killing mythic I would use pve wrist and rings and a haste/mastery belt if you can find one.

In Topic: Double Spelllock from GoSac has to go

Double spell lock sac is annoying but completely fine in current meta w/o blanket silences.  Just juke early when you know he's going to blow it.
