Madcat and I was discussing talents last night. We wanted a build that would be great for groups (both instanced and not) and for decent soloing.

I know Madcat have another build, but I wanted to show him my build

Destruction Mastery

Improved Shadow Bolt
Rank 5/5
Your Shadow Bolt critical strikes increase the next 4 sources of Shadow damage dealt to the target by 20%. Effect lasts a maximum of 12 sec.

Rank 5/5
Reduces the casting time of your Shadow Bolt and Immolate spells by 0.5 sec.

Rank 5/5
Increases the critical strike chance of your Destruction spells by 5%.

Rank 1/1
100 Mana 20 yd range
Instant cast 15 sec cooldown
Reagents: Soul Shard
Instantly blasts the target with 100 to 114 Shadow damage. Requires 1 Soul Shard. If the target dies from Shadowburn, and yields experience, the caster gains a Soul Shard.

Rank 2/2
Gives you a 70% chance to resist interruption caused by damage while channeling the Rain of Fire or Hellfire spell.

Destructive Reach
Rank 2/2
Increases the range of your Destruction spells by 20%.

Rank 2/2
Gives your Rain of Fire and Hellfire spells a 26% chance to stun the target for 3 sec.

Rank 1/1
Increases the critical strike damage bonus of your Destruction spells by 100%.

Destruction Total: 23

Affliction Mastery

Improved Corruption

Reduces the casting time of your Corruption spell by 2 sec.

Improved Curse of Weakness
Rank 3/3
Increases the effect of your Curse of Weakness by 20%.

Improved Life Tap

Amplify Curse
Rank 1/1

Increases the effect of your next Curse of Weakness or Curse of Agony by 50%, or your next Curse of Exhaustion by 20%.

Grim Reach
Rank 2/2
Increases the range of your Affliction spells by 20%.

Rank 2/2
Gives your Corruption and Drain Life spells a 3% chance to cause you to enter a Shadow Trance state after damaging the opponent. The Shadow Trance state reduces the casting time of your next Shadow Bolt spell by 100%.

Affliction Total: 20

Demonology Mastery

Improved Imp
Rank 3/3
Increases the effect of your Imp's Firebolt, Fire Shield, and Blood Pact spells by 30%.

Demonic Embrace
Rank 5/5
Increases your total Stamina by 15% but reduces your total Spirit by 5%.
Demonology Total: 8

Total Points Spent: 51
Level Required: 60

This will give me:

A good party buff (imp. Imp - bloodpact +40 stam)
Good soloing (drainlife+lifetap)
Good DoT's (2 insta casts+immo)
Good debuffs
Good AoE (Hellfire with 26% to stun and 70% uninterruptable)
Give me the chance to make my 3 second shadowbolt to insta cast (Nightfall)
Extra stamina 8Demonic Embrace)

Just my thoughts on a Warlock build. Now Madcat, I've shown you mine, now show me yours!!!
