The grimoires are very close dps wise for each spec except Affliction, sacrifice is a pretty clear winner. One thing about the information those guides are basing their recommendations on, They assume you and your pet will be able to attack your target 100% of the time, or at least the exact same time.
However that is not always the case, so - If you are out of range, los, or cannot attack your target at any time during a fight, (while your pet could) it'll always be better to have the pet for that part of the fight than to have it sacrificed.
That said, I think you may be misunderstanding Grimoire of Sacrifice
, if you use
to bring back your pet, you loose the sacrifice buff. FoX is there just so you have an option of summoning a pet instantly.
Oh no, I understand it. FoX (It has an acronym? Thank god.)-- I was just asking if the cost would be worth it to use it after the buff was over-- Like, use it if Chaos Bolt is only usable, but not if Shadowburn is and just summon the Demon, or something along those lines-- I don't know; I was asking.
So, to me, if the DPS is very similar, it seems like this then:Grimoire of Sacrifice
Pros: Very nice boost to your DPS
Cons: Must be able to attack the enemy. In a high-movement fight, this could be bad. Also, something interesting-- Affliction Spells are boosted 50%, Demonology 30%, and Destruction 25% and
spells "modified by Fire and Brimstone are unaffected." So it's a nice boost, but not nearly as big to Destro, and that also means it only boosts Rain of Fire in Destro in terms of AoE.
Pros: Sustained boost to your DPS
Cons: No burst-- that means that although your Trinkets and Cooldowns will affect your Demons at all times, you can't sync up the Grimoire like others to get a super-big-IT'S OVER NINE HUNDRED THOUSAND hit or something like that.
(Edit: Along with Grim of Sac, this does actually provide AoE burst, considering the Abyssal.-- And Single Target burst with your Terrorguard-- It's just not as much considering the sustained part.)Grimoire of Service
Pros: A nice boost to your DPS, and it works if you can't hit your target or have to move a lot.
Cons: On fights where your pet may be buggy, or where there's AoE (remember, Destro-- no AoE Felguard), this is lacking compared to the others. Even Sacrifice at least affects your Rain of Fire.
Overall, I would actually go Supremacy or Service, depending on the fight. If they end up being super close, Supremacy is just awesome. Personally.
