Warlocks might be tired of mage QQ but it's only because Mages portray warlocks like we are all speced 41/41/41Even you make this mistake in your line: "Warlocks bring PvP dominance to the table, exceptional DPS without sacrificing survivability, Healthstones, pets, CC, and probably 18 other crazy-awesome things I don't have room for."This shows a total lack of how warlocks work, and you imply that you can dominate PVP (demo) along with Exceptional DPS (Destro) and without sacrificing survivability (Affliction).

Actually, as someone who finds all caster classes annoying, you're incorrect. You're acting as if the mage argument is that you can do all three things at once, when it is in fact that you can do all three things better than a mage could. That your best PvP spec is better than theirs, your best PvE spec is better than theirs and that your best survivability spec blows their best out of the water.It may or may not be the case that this is so, but at least focus on what they're actually arguing instead of what you think they're arguing. They're not arguing that a warlock is able to do all things at once, but rather that all things that both a warlock and a mage can do, a warlock always does it better. Focus on that.

Perhaps this would be so, if the quote did not start with "Mages bring Polymorph to the table, and a food table to the table, and so-so DPS to the table."In what spec does a mage nerf his polymorph or table making abilities? Christian Belt compares core Mage abilities, against high end talented Warlock abilities.Lets also not forget that he says "exceptional DPS without sacrificing survivability" This is clearly an indication that we can spec for both Survivability (demo/aff) and Exceptional DPS (Destro). Another point toward 41/41/41 spec. No, if Mr. Belt means that in a specific spec, warlocks out perform mages in the same role, then this post uses strawman arguments and should be pointed out as such.

i keep hearing this same argument, that mages are better all-around because warlocks have to spec for things.i'm calling BS. if you want to dominate arenas, you spec for arenas, and i don't care what class you are. mages have to respec for arenas, raids, even aoe farming. you and others employing this "but SL warlocks can't raid" argument seem to be saying that a warlock, once specced, is trapped in his spec forever. respecs are cheap; you can make that kind of gold in an afternoon. so after lunch beat mages in the arenas, then respec and beat mage raid dps after dinner. total price: 50g.
