Nice try, but I'm sorry....Warlocks are overpowered. Introducing techniques to beat them is nice. However, the simple fact remains that a noob lower level Warlock can usually beat or come close to beating, a skilled higher level mage every time.Definition of OP, IMO.

Seeing that I can get two shotted out of 8k health I'm surprised you need more power to win. I'd recommend you try playing shadow/holy priests or shamans before going on about needing a buff or another class nerfed, mages seem well powered from what I receive daily in bgs.One thing the warlock vs warlock guide missed out was the most important buff of all - shadow ward, the first get that off saves 1k health min and gets a head start on the timer.And its been a long time since warlocks have been overpowered at the end game, maybe at 60 (if only for the fact that everyone ignores them due to the slow speed of the damage), but at 70 at least for affliction you don't generally live long enough to reapply a dot against a well equipped foe.

A high skilled mage would know when to use counter spell, silence and ice block. Here you go. Counter spell. Big dmg power, poly, big dmg power. Dead warlock.

Oh please - I play a warlock. Mages rarely use any of their tricks against me - and when they do its rather lethal.Frost nova, pom pyro, counter spell, and spell steal are a mages friend when going against a warlock.Warlock's biggest weakness - unless your heavy destruction and well geared for that spec (which is hard to do) is that doing lots of damage very quickly is not our forte.
