Going Demo In 2's For The Lulz

     Entering the 30th week of Season 8 (wtf!), there's nothing for me to really do except sit at my ratings & pray for the season to end.  To pass some time, I decided to give Demo a try.  I quickly found a random Resto Druid that had nothing else to do, so we started queving up for some skirms.  I have to admit, it was actually pretty fun & refreshing to try something new out, it was almost like playing a whole new class.  I also found that Demo can hit pretty hard, 9k Shadow Bolt crits were normal against people in full Wrath, & I was loving it.  I'm pretty sure we didn't lose a single match, we did around 20 or so, but the one match that stood out to me was against an actual 2's team; a mirror comp with the Warlock as Affliction.  Everyone knows how stupidly OP Aff / Resto is, so I knew this was going to be a great chance to test out Demo's viability, & also to take a crap on some kids chest who rolled an OP comp.
     The match started out normal enough, I jumped on the Lock as soon as I could to prevent him from spreading DoT's around.  I got a nice 9k Shadow Bolt on the Lock, so I quickly Banished the Druid, poured some Incinerates on him as Molten Core had procced, got a Spell Lock on the Lock while he was casting Fear, then I got the Druid into a full Fear, obviously he had to trinket to avoid having his Lock die.  I made a mistake of getting tunnel vision on the Lock, so I got caught in a full Counterspell while casting Shadowbolt, so decided to retreat a bit since the Druid had full HoT's rolling on the Lock now.
     Being the gay comp Aff / Resto is, they started prolonging the game via DoT's & Mana Drains.  Of course I prevented as much Drains on my Druid as possible, but there were some I just couldn't stop.  This went on for about 2 minutes, & throughout the game, I had slowly forced all the Druids cooldowns; Barkskin, Trinket, Nature's Swiftness, so it was time to end the game.
     Now the amazing thing about Demo is Metamorphosis, where you turn into a huge demon, which is basically the same skin as Illadin from WC3, & it basically gives you a 20% overall damage increase, as well as a decrease in damage taken.  You also gain some awesome abilities that are only usable in Meta form, my favorites being: Demon Charge (let's you charge an enemy) & Immolation Aura, which is almost basically a melee range Starfall, for me it ticks 1.8k every 0.7 seconds.
     Back to the match, I popped Metamorphosis, got the Lock in a full Fear, Demon Charged the Druid, popped Immo Aura, & started throwing out 9k NON-CRIT Shadowbolt's onto him.  He obviously didn't expect such burst, so with a simple Death Coil -> Counterspell while casting, I killed him pretty easily.  As soon as he dropped, I just started laughing at how a gimped out spec like Demo beat such an OP comp.  What made it even sweeter was I did way more damage than the Aff Lock from how much I had locked him down.
     There's no better feeling than having some kids log over from their realm onto mine to spam whispers on how 'bad I am' & the usual 'LOL DUELIST' when these kids can't even break 2k.
     I'll most likely keep screwing around with Demo since I haven't seen anyone with good gear use it, & there's nothing else for me to do.

 Here's a screenshot I took of the results just to laugh at it again later on.


     Here's to hoping Cataclysm is released soon!
