Anything I'm doing wrong, right, or anything I need to work on?
Your Doom uptime is 91.3%. This means that you had more than forty seconds of downtime. This comes to a loss of maybe three ticks, which would be over 200k overall damage.
Your Corruption uptime is 80.1%, which is even worse. Losing out on over a minute and a half of uptime means about fifty ticks, totalling at least 330k.
When you consider that you have a minute-long dot and a dot that is refreshed through a main staple of your rotation, this shouldn't really be happening. Do not hesitate to jump into Metamorphosis for five seconds to refresh these.
Hand of Gul'dan should be used more often. If you properly stack Shadowflame, it becomes rather powerful on top of the Demonic Fury that it gives you.
Harvest Life should not be casted. It doesn't provide enough damage or healing to warrant being used as much as it is here on your logs.
Where is your Doomguard? It wasn't even casted on this fight, yet you have four situations where you could take advantage of the bonus damage it deals when the target is below 20% health. From that, you just threw away maybe 600k total damage.
12/06/2012 09:44 PMPosted by RenryuuYeah, I'm still trying to get into the habit of using Meta more often. I'm still stuck on trying too keep as much fury as possible for when Dark Soul is off cooldown. :(
12/06/2012 09:44 PMPosted by RenryuuI was using Harvest for the Madness debuff on Meng to try and quickly remove the debuff and minimize overall damage dealt to the raid team.
12/06/2012 09:54 PMPosted by ShakmahaIt shouldn't take you 2 minutes to get 1000 fury.
Each time you cast a shadowbolt look at your dots on the boss and on the next one look at your cooldowns relative to the bosses HP and phase/ability. You just need to be aware of what to do next so that your CDs are on cooldown and that your dots don't fall off.
....Demonology is a simple spec, I am not trying to bash you or anything this is just an opinion.
I started raiding like 3 weeks ago, i had 2 epics and i was usually near the tanks in terms of damage done. We did Elegon tonight, I was top dps at the end of the fight.
So it is possible! just keep practicing and don't tunnel vision :P
Get rid of Kil'Jaeden's Cunning in Demo for most fights. We use a lot of instant casts already. Pick up Mannoroth's Fury and Hellfire the raid during the Madness debuff.

This is terrible advice. Kil'Jaeden's cunning is our best talent, even for Demo. Harvest Life is better than Hellfire. It does the same damage as hellfire while generating more fury, heals you, and you don't need to give up your best talent to make it effective.

KJC is absolutely horrible for Demo. If you need to cast and move, you should be doing so in meta, and spamming ToC or using Fel Flame if you don't have the fury.
Hellfire is the better choice as long as you are near full health because you can channel it while moving
Not totally sure how to respond to a gnome warlock of your raiding experience. I think I'll just say lol.
12/07/2012 12:02 PMPosted by HoimenSorry you're butthurt. I'm sure you'll think of an actual reason to not take KJC soon, other than "lol".
I have actual reasons. But you're arrogant and stubborn and so there really isn't a point in arguing with you.
You haven't tried.
The fact is, that instead of explaining your reasoning, your first thought was to go into armory and see which bosses I haven't killed instead. The time you spent doing that could have been spent typing an explanation, but just thought that your "raid experience" was an argument in itself. Sorry.
Look, if you want to admit you're wrong, you can do so without trying to blame me for it.
Yes, I thought I made it clear that I haven't tried. I looked at your armory to see how much time you've put into your warlock.

Kil'Jaeden's Cunning has only been live in its current state for just over a week. I am really not sure how it matters whether you've been playing a warlock for 8 years or 2 weeks. I have played with it over the last 2 weeks like everyone else, and it blows the other level 90 talents away.
12/07/2012 11:52 AMPosted by HoimenOr just take Kil'Jaeden's cunning and cast whatever spell makes the most sense for your fury status at the moment, losing nothing because the other 2 talents are about as close to useless as you can get.
KJC is situational at best. For Affliction it is the most obvious choice because of MG and DS, our 2 main fillers.
Ok, let me put it this way. In my experience, I have not once ever needed to cast and move with KJC as demo.
2 instant cast Fel Flames do as much damage as 1 Shadow Bolt, with the added benefit of adding 12 seconds on to corruptions length, and generating more fury than that 1 shadow bolt.
