Specs weren’t transferring properly from WoWDB, since corrected!
First I’ll just say that this is based entirely on Heroic and my opinion on what Demo spec to play and why for each fight;
P1: Consistent cleave on major targets, minor burst damage on minor targets, light/medium movement depending on what mechanics you get targeted with
P2: Consistent single target on major target (Odyn), periodic target swap to priority add, light movement
P3: Full single target with heavy movement, heavy movement
- Fight has a good range of movement from light to heavy, not the best for Demo but not the worst. Periods of time where you can do a lot of damage.
- Basically useless on P1 minor targets but can provide a heavy source of single target damage and minor cleave
- Heavily useful throughout the remainder of the fight
T15 is players choice
- Having gateway down during P3 will be vital for movement as will having Demonic Circle in a central location for best usage. Burning Rush will help supplement any additional movement.
- You’re in the raid to do single target damage to any priority target that aren’t the minor adds in P1
P1: Single target burn, light movement to soak breath
P2: Quick movement around the arena during the charge
- Fight is basically catered to Demo’s toolkit with full single target damage
- Light movement
T15 and T75 is players choice
- Fight is a single target burn with very light movement it plays to Demo’s strengths
- Being efficient with your movement is crucial and being in range of Guarm during the charge phase will be where you min/max the most
P1: Single target burn, light to medium movement
P2: Priority damage on major adds (Mariner/Grimelord), lots of minor adds that don’t matter for Demo, spread AoE with Tentacles, heavy movement
P3: Pure single target with add priority periodically (Mariner), light to medium movement
- Fight has varied movement throughout the course of the encounter, slightly unfavourable for Demo
- Lots of priority adds/mobs to focus
- A large number of minor adds that look enticing to AoE but don’t play to the strengths of Demo
T15, T30 and T75 is players choice
- Spec can be catered to some spread AoE with Impending Doom or more single target focused depending on what talent you go with depending on what your raid needs.
- Focusing priority targets in all phases will be where Demo shines
- After Mariner dies in P2, apply Doom to as many Tentacles as possible, focus high health tentacles, ignore minor adds
- Having smart placement of Circle and Gateway will be pivotal to limiting your movement if targeted by the Orb
- If you Doom the blobs in P1 fast enough you can get 1 tick of Doom off of them to spawn an Imp which attacks Helya after the blob disappears
For a lot of people looking at the sim listing for relics is a real pain and it’s hard for people to compare what relic is better. I’ve modified a tool made by Guiltyas over on the Druid Discord and made calculators for each spec, full instructions are on the spreadsheet.

Download the Weak Auras on WAgo.io here (some of these auras do have sound effects attached to them, if you don’t want them navigate to the Actions tab and disable the sound effect):
Please note this is a HUGE import so your client may have some freezing/locking up – this is normal as it is importing the full WA package.
I would highly recommend using Cyous trinket tracker included in the collection as well since it offers tracking of all trinkets in Legion.
If you only want certain parts of the pack you can extract individual auras directly from the set right on WAgo.io, to help I’ve made a post about this as well it can be viewed here:
If you want to have my exact UI setup I’ve made a post about what addons are the most required and their respective profiles for you to import as well!

Bolded * = New/Changed
Any suggestions/criticisms are more than welcome so that this can be improved upon!
Updating to 7.1 values for Thal’kiel’s Consumption and Demonic Empowerment, follow the instructions here or on the wago link to install it:
- Type /WA
- Navigate to Demonology Warlock – Set 1
- Find the aura called “NL: TKC Required Functions (does not display)” and delete it
- Import this new aura and place it into Demonology Warlock – Set 1
- Reload your interface
Not a big enough change/update to warrant a new version but the “Set 1” auras have been fixed for Doomguard to work in conjunction with the Legendary Wilfred’s Sigil of Superior Summoning. You don’t have to fully re-import the aura set just import these two auras…it is important to note that you should delete the ORIGINAL “NL: Doomguard” aura BEFORE importing the new one:
You can safely put these auras into the “Set 1” aura group.
In addition I’ve updated the full post as well just to be safe!
ISSUE IS RESOLVED! Carry on as normal!
For anyone trying to import my WeakAuras from WAGO.io there is an issue with not only mine but a number of author’s pages that has no option for importing, etc.
This issue has been reported and should hopefully be fixed soon. I appreciate your patience while this gets worked out! Unfortunately I won’t be uploading all my strings to Pastebin or anything else for now since I have many strings, etc. If it doesn’t get resolved there are other alternatives I’ll look into.
