A good intro to theorycrafting, and YES you do have to incorporate your playing style......however if I inspected a warlock with rogue weapons I would drop you from the group faster than I would drop you from the group faster than I would drop Sarah Palin from my Presidential ticket. Unless you're some sort of RPer (and Theorycraft and role-playing go together about as much as Pauly Shore and a serious dramatic role.) there is no excuse for showing up with gear that doesn't help the group, and it's selfish.Here's why: The other people in the group have to work that much harder, there is that much less room for error, and the potential for a total wipe increases when you bring inappropriate gear to a raid/5-man.Put this way: Your right to show up to a raid naked or appropriately geared ends the moment I have to start using consumables and generally making my gaming effort that much more difficult thanks to your lack of preparation (or just generally odd gear choices)By the way, my Warlock runs around with the Frost Scythe of Lord Ahune...which is the most badass looking weapon for my class. I usually lead damage in PvP, and although it's not the best weapon in the world...IT WAS FREE, it looks good, it's certainly not the worst since it's Epic and purple has a quality all it's own, and it does fit the playstyle/class of my intended character.

While I agree that not using a main-hand weapon did gimp my stats, it was also guild policy that warlocks couldn't take mage swords, so that sucked.During my raiding time, pre-BC warlocks were pretty much soulstone/healthstone/summon bots who's sole job was to keep Elements up for Mages (again, mage-heavy guild) and Banish elementals. If it weren't for banish we would've been benched. That, and tanking the Twin Emps. :/
