After 4 yrs odd of being a lock... probably switching my main to my first toon i ever made - a rogue. While its still a beta and still a lot of changes to come...as things stand right now the class has been gutted, ra---ed, bu----fuc---ed and just about ruined by blizzard in the name of balance vs. mages. Affliction is a total dead loss, dots still don;t scale on haste and damage, shadowbolt has been nerfed into the ground, raid utility is shot to hell and is now offered on a better term by DRUIDS...demo is meh and destro while looking good on paper is the lousiest set of inter-related talents going.So instead of qqing or wondering if ill ever get to enjoy a decently balanced class that has a good chance against a similarly geared rogue ... im just going to reroll and roll with my own rogue ... who has not been played since dec 2005.Just in case you are wondering if i am one of those pvp geared scrubs.. i am not. I have cleared upto 8/9 BT/ 5/5 MH, obtained 2100 in 2v2, 1875 3v3, and 2032 in 5vs5. Pretty much raided right through all of bc on a semi regular basis. thanks blizzard for ruining a perfectly good class... the warlocks will go the way the shammies did right at the start of bc.

Yeah except that now Shaman are pretty powerful and wanted in a number of high-end fights. The underdog classes at the beginning of any expansion always get their day eventually. Sitting around prophesying doom and gloom doesn't get anyone anywhere.

I feel you. Thats the same way I'm feeling too. It seems they are just over complicating the class at this point. I already have a page of macros just for spells I use on a daily basis.

Yup. It'd be nice to get some clearer idea where Blizz are taking Warlocks. Everything is so half-finished, or just plain broken, at the moment.But at least I can turn into a demon. Whoopee.

HERE HERE!! i love locks more than anything! but im forced to play my second favorite.. paladin!... oh wait, theyre unbalanced too. QQ.. but i cant complain too much cuz blizzard DOES have the coolest game even with some-what unbalanced classes.
