If they would come out and TELL us what this supposed exploit that they put the 2min CD in to prevent was, I'd be alright with it. But really? I'm not surprised. I've been a Warlock for a year now. I'm used to getting screwed over.

Wait, what?All throughout BC locks were incredible. Insane in PVP, absolutely dominant in endgame caster DPS. Yes, they could probably use some love, though I'm honestly convinced it's just the baddies that are used to spamming shadowbolt and pwning the meters that are complaining about the low DPS. We have a couple amazing aff locks that consistently fight with our FFB mages on the meters.

This is in response to Kate... Unfortunately, I started my Warlock when BC came out. By the time I got to 70 (I leveled slowly at the time), BC was basically over with, and I certainly was not good enough to get into any raids or even instances (never did a single one in Outland at proper level). So, some of us missed out on Warlocks pwning the crap out of everything during BC. I was busy leveling. Now that I've got an 80, Warlocks are like the worst class to play. It's pretty damn lame.Also, I'm Affliction and I still suck. I admit I'm new to being full Aff and might not have the rotation down yet, and my gear is not really the best. But it kinda hurts when my Mage friend has literally half the hit rating I do and owns the crap out of me on the damage meters. I know a Mage is not a Warlock but we have a ton of the same gear, and in many cases my gear is better. It's kind of disheartening to work so hard and still not be very good.I hate to join the brigade of people abandoning their Lock mains for DKs, but after leveling my DK from 55 to 60 in like three or four hours, I'm starting to understand how you could abandon a main just like that.I'd really prefer Warlocks to just stop sucking already, though, so I can get back to ENJOYING my main who I put so much work into. I shouldn't really feel more satisfied playing a level 38 Shadow Priest than my 80 Warlock with 345 hit rating, should I? Blah.Yes, I'm bitter about Ritual of Summoning. It's such a pain in the ass to summon people now when I'm the only Lock in the raid group. You basically have to say, "If you want to play this century, you gotta get here on your own." :\

Jess Q -Bummer that you missed BC. As for Aff lock DPS, I'd suggest finding a veteran Aff lock and picking their brain on their rotation. It's complicated, but when done correctly is huge DPS. You should have no problem competing with an equally geared FFB mage on a boss fight. Trash is always another story (and you shouldn't be worried about trash DPS anyway) - Aff locks really shine when the fight is long enough for all of your DoTs to get rolling.Don't get discouraged.
