@ Mr. Dunkerton:The only warlock spec you described is affliction, which almost nobody would argue against you about. It's very mindless. However, to say that using Meta is simple a question of whether it's up or not is painfully ignorant. It's one of the mist complex abilities in the game, because it's usage varies on an almost fight to fight basis. The destruction rotation is based on abilities with fairly high cooldowns for a normal rotation that must be coordinated around a three cast haste buff and a DoT which all of your damage relies upon.Fire mage is mostly keeping one DoT up and spamming fireball.Frost mage is mostly frostbolt and a couple of cooldowns ad nauseum.Arcane mage is, once again, just a couple of spells alternating, mostly based simply on the amount of time you have to cast those spells. Weaksauce.The funny part is that your defense of the mage class only hurts you, not us warlocks. While it's true that at least the Demo and Destro warlocks have to scratch and claw to get the dps that you can get by spamming two buttons, you are the one that has to play a dreadfully boring class. It's the only class which hasn't really evolved since vanilla, with some tiny exceptions in the Arcane tree. You are stuck with a four year old damage paradigm while the dps around you gets all sorts of fun and complex toys to play with. You are like children who are happy they were given a spoon to play with whole everyone else got a firetruck, but then you insist that spoon is better anyway, no matter how insanely wrong you are.
