This is a spell given to demonology warlocks who choose the [Glyph of Demon Hunting]. As one of their main glyphs, it allows a warlock to indefinitely stay in a demon form and use most of the said abilities, including [Hand of Gul'dan] unlike its more DPS-wise brother. [Nether Plating] works in this form, the main purpose of this form is mainly for off-tanking in case the tank is killed and the creature is on its last legs but you need a tank. It gives you black and purple demon wings like those in Metamorphosis and once [Demonic Fury] reaches a certain point it sprouts purple horns as well. Warlocks are incredibly well armored and a warlock using this can pick up the slack left by a dead tank. A skilled warlock who focuses their gear on this ability can tank normal dungeons and, to a limited extent, heroic dungeons as well, however due to the lack of a crit reduction ability, they are not viable for raids.
This does not increase your DPS so it is useless to use it unless you're off-tanking or leveling by yourself against a powerful creature. This also increases the threat of your abilities so if you use it in an instance it'll pull aggro from the tank, which might warrant a kick from the group. However, it is useful in the fact you don't constantly have to cycle between Metamorphosis and your mortal form when you use [Demonic Leap] it takes the fury but you're technically already in a demon form so this makes you just fly forward without going into [Metamorphosis]
In PvP this is likely very viable with the amount of defense it offers overall, and the utility of the abilities within. Demon leaping past your enemy on a hill, or using Sleep on another player to stun them for 8 seconds while you attack the other player. As well as the damage ward and AoE power it offers, it will bring use to warlocks in arenas and such.
