All of the specs are good now, and even in the new raid patch they are 250k DPS or so apart from best to worst on patchwork style fights. Warlocks are one of the few classes were all specs are viable and fun.

From what I understand, mobility - which you don't use on Patchwork - kills demo because all of their spells have cast times and they have massive ramp time.

Yes, but the differences are really close from what I've read on the Warlock discord.

It just comes down to play what you like, unless you like BM Hunters or Pirate Rogues lol

Most demo locks I've talked with that have issues with demo is the up time on demonic empowerment not feeling satisfying to use.

It really isn't. It's not fun to heal by spamming atonements and then another spell after either.

Demo isn't that bad as long as you don't take that one talent... the hand of gul'dan one that applies doom. I know it's one of the better talents but I feel that it really limits your gameplay because you have to wait for doom to proc before dropping another hand of gul'dan. I'd rather just use my gcd to drop doom and then spam hand of gul'dan was often as I can. It's more fun that way.

Doesn't work like that. Doom will still "tick" when it's supposed to. If you refresh/update the duration with a Hand of Doom'ed HoG, you'll get the normal expected doom tick and then, assuming no further refreshes, you'll get a partial tick at the end of the extra added duration (damage dealt scales based on how long that extra duration was, relative to your standard haste-modified Doom tick rate). Shard gain is wonky unless you keep refreshing it such that it always deals "full" ticks though.

Just think of it as a DoT (like Corruption, Agony, Immolate, etc.) that ticks very, very slowly.

As someone who has used demo for a while now it feels fairly lack luster this expansion. I always figured demo would be the warlock spec closest to what you imagine a warlock would be. So I like it for that and the artifact is great, screaming at your imps to fight harder. Overall, pick affliction probably.

Used to play demo back up till mop when I originally took a break, demo is odd for me now.
I like the class fantasy of lots of pets at my call, but i miss meta, the improved version of the various pets and all my extra dots.
