Affliction spec is one of the strongest in WoTLK because it has excellent damage and high survivability. But to show these results, you need to know this spec's subtleties.
If you play as an alliance, create gnome because of +5% INT and crit % buff. If horde - orc, Blood Fury spell gives 168SP/15s buff. And buff for pets +5% DMG.
