Stacking soulshards doesn't solve the primary problem I hear complaints about. I could care less about overpowered warlocks, but I do have a guild mate that has to stop doing arenas every two or three games to go farm shards.No other class in the game has to do that. He has to STOP playing the game... to go farm shards. Or else he's entirely ineffective. I told him to just go buy some more, and he claims you can't buy them. I asked him why he didn't farm them off the critters in Dal or outside town, and he said he has to go to somewhere that would give him experience.So if I do arenas with him, this change means we'll either have to sit there while he's purposely throwing away the game by Draining Soul on a rogue that's running around instead of killing it, or he has to stop and farm shards EVEN MORE OFTEN since he's now capped at 32 and can't just farm 100 shards beforehand.This gets to be pretty frustrating, and I'm not going to bother doing arenas with a warlock if the only way they can be effective is to have to stop every two games to go farm shards for 10-20 minutes. He can get his own points with someone else. I'm not blaming him, but Blizzard can't honestly expect their arena partner to spend that long standing around doing nothing just because they feel like a warlock farming enough of these to last them a full night of arenas in advance is some abused mechanic. The fact that these spells still even COST SHARDS in arenas in the first place blows my mind.
