Okay, reading this and other warlock columns, I can see how others (at least one) have mistaken me for one of you people.However, bitterness does not directly translate into accepting every dark, soul-twisting aspect of life that would make the most evil beings in existence look away in utter shame.I AM NOT A WARLOCK! I AM JUST A VERY DISILLUSIONED MAGE!(Just a horrible, *horrible* play-off of the most recent 'The Queue' article in the comments section, for those of you who are confused. =P )On-topic: Although I will never play a warlock, even I feel like something is missing from their minions. Demonology especially doesn't really seem to stand out for me.Even when I first started playing WoW (about a week or two into the AQ gate-opening event), I looked up all the classes and was surprised that any warlock could use any pet for a variety of reasons.I know Blizzard likes to keep peoples' options open without making them feel pigeon-holed into doing something any one particular way and *only* that way but at the same time they want people to think on their feet with limited resources.A compromise: different warlock specs have access to only 2 demons each (3 for Demonology due to the Felguard being exclusive). All demons would get talent trees emphasizing their classic roles, with side/extra points able to be spent in helping with their weak areas if the player chose so).Each spec with have their demons pre-set but with the talents at least it's somewhat flexible. Each demon would retain the ability to be sacrificed for a special added effect upon the warlock. However, if balance of some sort could actually be achieved, I'd prefer it that the sacrifice be different for different specs which just *happen* to have one of their pre-sets the same kind of demon of another spec. All demons would have the same talent point options, though, just not to get TOO confusing.Not the most amazing idea ever but at least I tried, right? Either way, it was kinda fun fantasizing what could have been.
