Are warlocks useful in arena when not paired with a deathknight and a holy pally? Looking at the comps from the article yesterday it looks like that is the only comp that locks are in.

I had a long discussion with some friends about these stats the other day, when they first started making rounds on the net. We basically came away with what I believe to be 3 very valid points:1) Warlocks are amazing in PvP... as long as they can be kept alive.2) A DK/Pally combo is so strong, that any other DPSer thrown into the mix will do fairly well -- but Warlocks complete the trio amazingly well due to DoT dmg and a spammable Fear.3) Warlocks are fine... minimal changes are required at best (something I really believe to be true).Shamans are the healers of choice for many Warlocks atm, btw. But really, a good Holy Pally is hard to beat.

"3) Warlocks are fine... minimal changes are required at best (something I really believe to be true)."Warlocks are fine? Fine as in every class can counter fear/spells/dots several different ways fine. Fear is not a form of escape AT ALL. The reverse blinks is a nice start but not what I would call an answer.

To Naix:So the Warlocks are so "NOT FINE" that they are at their best spot in arena history and the 3rd piece of the high-win-concentration DK/Healadin/Lock comp?QQ moar please.

That's because the healadin keeps them up while the DK wrecks havoc. This gives the warlock time for his, um, damage over time. As was stated with those other classes warlocks don't do well at all. Everyone can get out of fear. And if a warlock can't keep it's target away he's useless.
