Hello there, first of all i want to thank you for a great Warlock guide.
On Ultraxion you say that we shouldnt be using Metamorphosis together with Moonwell Chalice because it wont register it on Metamorphosis. Is this only for this trinket or is it the same for Other trinkets/Synapse springs/Volcanic Potion?
And also why do you use Demon Soul before the pull and not together with Metamorphosis in a macro?
It seems impossible for me to get 10 stacks of WoA before my pre-pot runs out so i was wondering what was most important to have up when popping Doomguard?
Again, thanks a lot for the guide.

Metamorphosis + MWC

Hope this clarifies the thing a bit.
DS on pull
You could macro it into your meta, if you do the Felguard -> Felstorm -> Soul Burn: Felhunter opener, as you would get the Felguards Demon Soul instantly regardless. Though if you summon the Felhunter pre pull, you for obvious reasons want to get the DS together with the MWC trinket pop before you meta / summon a felhunter!
About WoU + pre pot + DG popping
I found it to be a good time to pop the Doomguard when you Soulburn in the Felhunter after felstorm, you should have maximum proc, and i think its close to around the time Power Torrent falls off. It's pretty easy to calculate whats worth the most for the DG as Volcanic Potion is 1xxx int and 1 stack of H: WoU is 99 intellect, so you would need to lack the whole trinket and the potion is still more important!
Hope it helps you out, feel free to ask anytime

how would you rate affli lock in this tier as whole since it's my personal favourite is it really useless in some fights or is competitive in all boss fights?

It's competitive on all fights, so it's a good overall spec for DS. The main issue is that it's not much fun to play without H: Cunning to compete with the rest of the affliction locks. So go for it, if its your favorite!

Heroic Madness - 10 man. Congealing Bloods. Affliction Warlock.
Any further tips/clarification on how to effectively damage these? Our guild is having issues doing them @10% & 5%, and my damage is on the lower side for them.
Edit: Doing roughly 600-800k per round, which isn't nearly enough.
What I'm doing: Soulburn + SoC, Shadowflame (70% slow), Rain of Fire.

The rotation you mention is more or less the same i do, but if you are too far away to Shadowflame, you should just spam Rain of Fire on the spot they spawn. I only really run to the behind spot and the one beside the raid to the right. The top one i normally just Rain of Fire and maybe ill do a fast run to Shadowflame depending on the situation. Does your raid really need your slow? Rain of Fire the spot > Seed + Corr > Rain of Fire, there isn't really anything else you can do!

I usually save Shadowflame until they're about halfway there, once they've gotten out of the hunters trap. I might need to place my RoF more ahead of the group opposed to in the middle, since by the time they're out it's only ticking once or twice. Thanks for the response, and cheers to the awesome guide (:
