whats with the hate for warlocks
3-26-2011 @ 5:05PM
Hi there! Welcome to Arcane Brilliance. You must be new here. Have a mana brownie. ^_^In something resembling seriousness, though, Mr. Belt's hatred for warlocks is long-lived, dating back to the BC days when warlocks could stomp all over mages in PvP and there was little that mages could do about it. Thus, warlock-hate is a regular feature of this column.Me, I contribute to warlock-hate in my own way: by PVPing with a pink-haired gnome warlock.

I always thought the Warlock-Mage hatred was from whenever warlock got a nerf, Blizz would feel the need to nerf mages, and vice-versa, resulting in Warlocks feeling their nerfs were because of the mages, and mages thinking all their nerfs were the warlocks' fault.

Regardless of the source, it's actually a part of the game now, as seen in the goblin starting area (the mage and warlock trainers are engaged in a continual battle).Lorewise, it can probably be justified by the "too close for comfort" principle. Mages and warlocks are both arcanists, and yet the way each uses their arcane powers is seen as either abhorrent or pathetically timid by the other. Neither *likes* to be so closely associated with the other as they in fact are, so there's bound to be some tension between those who see the other side as perverting their gift, or conversely as squandering theirs foolishly.

I always thought it was because both mages and warlocks compete for the same cloth gear ...

DesireB- DON'T EAT THAT BROWNIE!Mana-brownies from people in Arcane Brilliance always contain 1. laxative, or 2. poop. They're nothing like the brownies we serve at the slaughtered lamb. (cough, Ahem).
