Demonology is one of the hardest specs, so you must concentrate all the time.
Life Tap buffs your spell damage. You should keep this buff up at all times.
Shadow Bolt is a filler when you don’t have cooldowns up. You should also keep Improved Shadow Bolt on the target.
Immolate should be kept up at all times.
Soul Fire Use when Molten Core and Decimation are active. If you can’t get both to proc, you can use it with just Decimation active.
Corruption should be kept up at all times.
Incinerate if you can’t get both procs, use it with Molten Core
Curse of the Elements should be on the target at all times.
Curse of Doom is your primary curse when an unholy DK or Moonkin is in the raid group.
Metamorphosis should be used as often as possible. Especially during the execution phase of the boss. (less than 35% health)
Immolation Aura should only be used when Metamorphosis is active.
It’s also worth noting to use your trinkets when Metamorphosis is active.
Demonic Empowerment should be used on cooldown.
