I've been pretty much exclusively demo for a while now, and have done 2 weeks of LFR thus far.
I really enjoy demo, thinks it's a lot of fun, and thinking I may go into normal raiding soon.
I am, however, having some issues, and wanted to know if you could offer help and advice
1) GCD and Collision
I seem to be constantly be wanting to hit something, but can't. Good examples of this are wanting to refresh doom, but meta is on cd. OR, I hit DS, IS, meta, begin spamming, and notice I need to refresh HoG. So, I go into caster form, hit it, and now I'm stuck out of meta . . . so I should have just left the HoG? I believe I know and follow the priority system correctly, but I seem to be always wanting to hit spells when they are either on gcd as well. I find myself constantly waiting for the GCD to end. I feel I need to a cd button just for the GCD!
2) Life Tap
Is the idea to spam life tap when I'm low on mana, or to use it every once in a while? Should I use it at a particular number, like 60%? Right now, I am doing 1 of two things: spamming it followed by a healtstone, or, I look for those times the healer is healing me (read overhealing), and then I spam it and watch as the healer continues to heal me (I think I'm secretly tricking them). At any rate, I don't think either one of these strategies are very good and I would seriously love some help here.
Can bosses and mobs remove this from themselves? I swear I would apply this one some bosses in LFR and it just seemed to disappear after a few seconds. Also, if there are several locks in an lfr, why do I seem to be the only one applying it . . . .
4) How's demo looking for 5.2? I know aff is currently stronger, but I sense things are going to kinda get "refresh" come 5.2, so sticking to demo for now cause I really do love the one-one army feel and shapeshifting is a blast.
Much thanks and may your days continue to be dark and fruitful!
