In the first fight she kept conditions off of us (the main part of the fight) and helped keep the spider adds at bay.
In the second fight she basically kited the boss around pillars (who normally goes on a rampage and kills everyone). She was the ideal choice due to her high health pool, death shroud, and cripples/chills.
In the third fight she helped by spamming AoE like crazy with the Staff.
In the first two she was very useful, in the third she was average.

I don't know where people are getting this "no high damage" nonsense from. I can drop 13k hp off a heavy armored target over the span of roughly six seconds with a good power/crit build. That's at the same time the target is blinded, chilled, and having his boons replaced with conditions.
I think they assume no high damage due to lack of big numbers and don't stop to consider conditions and minions
As for the OP, I'm still messing with my spec but as of now I'm going staff-condition and D/D/ Two totally different playstyles, one uses DoTs the other direct damage and the D/D will come in handy when I have a melee decide 'let's get the one in the dress!'
Until I stab them in the face, load em with conditions and fear them

in Wow(i played since vanilla) warlocks could spec 2 ways for raids. 1 was destro(big numbers) one was affliction(lots of dots, doing small damage each tick) notice I said LOTS of dots. so 4-5 plus and then spamming shadowbolt.
this class is a dot class. DAMAGE OVER TIME. our conditions are bleeds and vulnerabilities. we control conditions the best. so yea the warrior stomping you can do 2k crits with a normal attack fine. but a necromancer can stack enough conditions to kill that warrior in small but very effective increments. I'll take the dot class over the melee class anytime. because even if you die, the dots can still kill them. trust me i know
