Why would Blizz even consider this? Every single lock (at least at higher level) is going to need to switch their gear to keep from getting severely gimped by this. Warlocks gear for stamina, and turn that into mana. Even Destruction still places an emphasis on stamina over spirit and mp5. And now they change one of the core lock mechanics? This wont matter much for Affliction because of dark pact, and could potentially benefit some Destruction and Nightfall specs, but its a BIG gimp for Demonology. I can see high end raiders swapping warlock gear for mage/spriest because of this, instead of 4000 hp to 2000 mana, they could give 2000 hp for 4000 mana.

(I play a main Mage and have an alt Warlock.)I would agree, the Intellect bias seems a definite switch to making Warlocks play like Mages and other casters. Is this good/bad?It will make WL less distinctive, and make them more killable by gearing with less Stamina. They still have group buffs to make them attractive in groups though.Also are their spells mana-efficient compared to other Int casters (if they Lifetap less)?? They may have to be re-tweaked. It seems like a big change to make!
