    Succubus: Seduction
    Felhunter: Spell Lock
    Voidwalker: Shadow Bulwark
    Imp: Singe Magic
    Felguard: Pursuit

    These spells replace your “Command Demon” ability in your spellbook.

    For those that want to know about the grimoire of sacrifice.

      Thanks – that’s very helpful.

    Question about stats. Seems hit is capped at 7.7% now and there is a need for expertise at 7.7% as well. The section here leaves out expertise and still says hit cap is 15%. Any chance anyone has clarification on this?

      Yep, I know this one’s pretty confusing at the moment. As of 5.04, Hit/Expertise to 7.5% is for non-casters – casters need Hit of 15%, no Expertise.

    Thanks for putting this together. You’re sticking with haste as better than crit and mastery. Is this a hold over from pre 5.04? Some people are recommending mastery>hate>crit now with the same rotation, possible because SB was replaced by MG.

      I would reccomand mastery as i just reforged all my haste to it and saw 80k on maddness and 35 – 40 on most other fights. Zagam on icy viens is the on who lead me there read his affliction tips in the forums.

      Stat weights are all over the place at the moment. As a global recommendation, the research I’ve done suggests that Haste will probably do better for most Afflic locks than Mastery.

      However, it’s SO up in the air right now that if you’re concerned about going beyond a quick-start setup I’d strongly recommend downloading Simulationcraft and using that to determine stat priorities for your character.

    In regards to grimoire of sacrifice. I was curious if you leave up your demon and sacrifice it during a burn phase of a boss fight to get the buff, or do you just summon your demon and sac right away and just keep the buff up all the time. I currently have just been sacrificing the demon before the fight even starts, but wasn’t sure if i was doing that correctly.

    I am guessing your stats are for the PVE scene since they do not include PVP resilience or PVP power. For those of us who do both, is there a happy medium or are two sets of gear mandatory?

    I found an amazing aoe rotation for 4 or more enemies. Casting soulburn: seed of corruption, and then casting regular seed of corruption WITHOUT soulburn will put TWO seeds of corruption on the target. I just maelific grasp the target to get both to pop at once. Rinse and repeat this. The dps is amazing. Having corruption on every target refreshes soul shards quickly, so you never have to worry about running out. Also soulburn CoE when your shards are abundant.

    Hi Hugh, to reduce clutter you can safely remove Shadow Trance from this list, it now just gives a free shard and is not duration dependent anymore.

    I think that we should help a local business by hiring a local
