I'd like to take a moment to praise this column, with its new leadership. It is, without a doubt, the most interesting class column to read. There's no whining or bragging, there's no vitrol towards other classes, and most important of all each column brings actual INFORMATION.Some readers might prefer some of the other class columns...perhaps feeling that an outraged writer is something to rally their outrage under. For me though, the curiousity and experimentation, and the inquisitive and thoughtful nature of this column, make it an excellent read.Kudos to you, Mr. Whelan.

Soundly seconded. Nothing against the last Blood Pact author - I have always enjoyed the column - but, Nick, you bring an investigative tone to WI that's really a joy to read. It's thorough, entertaining, and well-written - all things I want out of a good post. Ably done, sir.

I completely agree. I've never played a warlock at end-game. I had a level 64 affliction warlock alt a couple of years ago on my old server, and recently, thanks to the marvels of RAF with a friend of mine, I now have a new warlock alt who's almost high enough to learn Incinerate.I really love how this column is written, without trying to throw a lot of theorycrafting numbers at me or use a lot of abbreviations I have to go look up on wowhead five times in every paragraph. It's nice to read about someone who's completely new to a spec give an honest first reaction, easy explanation of how it's played and how it compares to others.My warlock is greatly enjoying a felguard spec since I read last week's column, and I'm enjoying leveling her up even more because of how much I'm looking forward to getting more destruction talents to balance out my spec. Keep up the good work, I only wish other class columns were as enjoyable to read as this one is.PS: I like to think it's 7/7/57 because that's more fun to say :)

Echoing these comments. I look forward to your articles at this point, Nick. Fantastic job. Your last one, about the Felguard/Emberstorm spec was so well written it actually convinced me to try it out on my Affliction-since-Level-One warlock. It's been enjoyable to see big 8k crits pop up. Now you've got me wanting to try this one out. So yeah...welcome to WoWInsider. You're doing a great job.

I agree with the comments posted above. This is hands down the best class column on WI. The thing that I like the best is that you don't pad the word count. You actually fill the column with both useful information and insightful ideas. My main is a mage and my "main alt" is a warlock. It would be wonderful to have a column done this well for the mage. Thank you for the obvious effort and job well done!

Agreed. Considering other certain class writers *cough*mage class writer*cough* go out of their way to throw jabs at the warlocks in each column. Way to keep it clean and rather unbiased.

I really appreciate this praise, everyone. It means a lot to know that I'm providing something which is interesting and entertaining to my audience. My insides, they are filled with the warm fuzzies.
