Demonology Warlocks with Wands

I know this topic has been tossed around a lot. However, even in these last batch of hotfixes, no wand fix was to be seen. For those of you who do not know, While in Metamorphisis our Attack Speed is baselined and our auto attack turns a ranged ability that fires as we cast. However, with wands, we are unable to trigger our new "melee" attack while in meta. As such, lose around 5% dps just due to a bug (or a huge oversight) that causes us to use baseline "Shoot" Ability, which triggers the GCD and stops us from being able to use Touch of Chaos. This needs to be fixed ASAP since our only option for a weapon in Moshugun Vaults happens to be a wand, which with this bugged left in play, would render demo crippled in the weeks to come.

This is an extremely frustrating problem. Is there any way to just remove the "shoot" functionality altogether?

BUMP

Some information at the very least would be nice. I don't understand how Pet Battles, Vanity Pets (the new one on your front page today) and many other misc. fixes that are so small takes priority over giving an answer to this problem for Demonology.

I can't believe the only epic weapon available to me at this time is a wand and I don't even want the thing.

To my knowledge, even though it's instant, the attacks generated my meta are still considered casting due to the coding, right? and you normally can not shoot or use a melee weapon while casting, right? I don't really see an issue here, unless they change it to where you can turn off the auto-cast function of meta.

the issue is that sometimes the wand shoot will override our Touch of Chaos due to latency and/or spell queuing, thus locking us out from casting Touch of Chaos for an entire GCD. and this isn't the normalized GCD that Touch of Chaos usually follows but the one whose length is determined by the speed of the wand.

if you equipped a wand and tried playing in meta, you would notice the problem.

Is this still being looked into? I noticed on the hotfix thread they fixed an issue with 'shoot' for our tanking glyph but the problem still plagues the main spec. Meta melee is 5% of my overall damage on any given fight and it has the ability to proc stormlash from the shaman totem. I am unable to use my Elegon wand(489) over a 463 dagger because the dps loss is just too great while playing demo. Please get this fixed soon.

still not fixed for meta. dark apotheosis isn't even viable for anything. i'm confused why the devs found that form important to fix over meta.

It's not really fixed at all, at least not that Ive noticed. Still happens in meta, still happens in dark apotheoses. Really annoying.
