@ rosencratzFair enough :)It was early in the morning when i read the Q&A, had just come back from a get together with friends. So yes, /tantrum is over now.I openly admit that I am a far better Feral druid/rogue than i am a warlock, and that just really comes down to who i am and what i'm capable of/best at. Nothing wrong there, either with me or with the classes. It's just an issue of aptitude and what i enjoy.My only real argument is that I believe warlocks are generally weaker in all forms of PvP combat than stealthers, not just in certain situations that would be more advantageous to a stealther class, but in all situations, barring a couple questionable "niches" for ranged dps in PvP. Niches like downing a defense cannon or siege vehicle in WG, or DoTing up a large number of people in a crowded BG scrap.So my argument against the current state of the warlock is just that it *seems* to me that warlocks are generally weaker than some (i think many) classes at all times and in all situations in PvP. And that is what troubles me about the class.But I appologize for the /rant and I wholeheartedly agree that I am a terrible warlock. I dislike casting times in general in a PvP environment. I don't play particularly smartly in terms of pressuring healers, or using my powerful ranged CC to optimal use under pressure.Compare that to my learned ability as a stealther to lock the right people down at the right times, dynamically react to a combat situation, knowing when to engage and when to back off and restealth or cast CC, and knowing when to switch targets and not indulge in tunnel vision...I think it's clear what play style my brain favors. And that's okay.I think the one constructive thing that comes out of my rant last night is that I do believe a Feral druid or rogue is an excellent choice for any 1st-toon warlocks out there who find themselves similarly frustrated with their class. I enjoy PvP and PvE 100 times more than I ever did as a warlock. I can't recommend stealthers highly enough.
