Is There An Easier Way To Use Grim Service??

Warlock
Okay so it's hotkeyed but then I still have to click anyways to send second felguard. Is there any way to macro it or something to where it's just one hotkey button and sends felguard specifically?
/cast Grimoire:Felguard
Or just drag the "Grimoire: Felguard" spell out of your spellbook.
Do not use Grimoire of Service. Grimoire of Supremacy is higher DPS.

This. But if you must use service I have it macro'd:

/cast Blood Fury
/cast Dark Soul: Instability
/use Flashfrozen Resin Globule
/cast Grimoire: Felguard

perfectly matched (minus the trinket) but again use supremacy.

At level 90, and using a normal mode raid gear profile, Supremacy and Service appear to offer pretty much the same dps gain.

Also, for Grimoire of Service I move the Grimore: Felguard spell onto a keybind and hit that. It attacks my target without any problem, so that should work for you.
The sims claim the same DPS, but then again the sims are clearly wrong for some classes as it's the same coding as was being used post the MoP patch at level 85 and some classes could do massively more DPS than their sim (which was theoretically in T13 heroic BiS).

I have found Supremacy and no imp swarm to be the clear choice for demonology.

Top parses aren't very meaningful when there aren't nearly as many parses to begin with, and we're not anywhere close to the level of gear that the sim uses. It's also using level 90, level 90 raid gear, and the sim is for patch 5.0.5, which is live. Not 5.0.4, or even 5.0.3 or 5.0.1. I don't see anything that indicates an old patch is being used.

I've obtained #1 rankings in the first week or so of a raid too. It did not mean that everything I was doing was correct, and I knew that I wasn't.
Sure, but even if that's the case and the balance between the abilities is going to change at ilevel 509, it would still be useful for raiders to know that in the 470-480 range, service isn't better. Unless they think learning to push the hotkey is worthwhile to practice even if it's sub-optimal in the meantime.
Guys I'm pure pvp, service is better. Simcraft or w/e doesn't tell me that, playing does. Two felguards beat the !@#$ out of everybody very quickly. I'll probably do 0 raids this expansion. Thanks though for macro info etc.

Yes clearly my comments were regarding PVE. PVP then service and imp swam and any burst you can get is better.

Thanks. I switched it to match my gloves engineering move and worked great with one exception. It's doing all of my CD's I want BESIDES Grimoire of Felguard. I think it's because opening the service thing is two steps. Anybody good with macros wanna solve this plz?
Try this.

#showtooltip
/use Flashfrozen Resin Globule
/castsequence reset=10 Blood Fury, Dark Soul:Instability, Grimoire:Felguard

Also, to comment on the Grimoire debate, right now, Demo sims the highest with GoSer, and Destro sims highest with GoSup.

So, if you are demo (I haven't checked your armory), you want to take up GoSer.

Problem is you have to target something for it to summon just like the domo guard now

I have a target when I pop macro though. It does dark soul+engineer gloves+imps but doesn't send second felguard.
@Kami, imps and service both use a global. To use both you need something like this:

/castsquence Imp Swarm, Grimoire: Felguard

You'll need two presses no matter what.

Thank you sir! That's exactly it. I'll keep felguard on it's own keybind because... I don't want to have to sequence the other 3 that work together just fine at once (Engineer gloves, dark soul, imps).
