I know it's been discussed forever, but what if ... Warlocks enslaved World Demons the way Hunters tame their pets?The Hunter pets were standardized (DPS and talents wise) into three groups with their own characteristics.Why don't Blizzard regroup the available Demons in similar three general groups and let us Locks enslave what we want?At the moment it looks like a Hunter can choose one of three types of pets, and the one specializing in pets (Beast Master) has more options.Let's do the same, except in our case we do not tame them - we enslave them with the Demo Locks having more options. The mechanic works well for Hunters and solves a lot of their different needs at different times while we are stuck with specific minions or suffer (results wise).And if we go that route, why not give those minions a talent tree (same as Hunter pets) to enable speciailizations? I don't see it as Hunterizing the Locks - I see it as using a working viable mechanic for another class that needs it.Now that I think about it, how loud do you think the noise would be if Hunters only had 5 available pets and in reality they had to use a specific one depoending on their spec?God save Blizzard fro problems like that ...

Mechanics-wise it would be interesting, but I don't think we really need any more class homogenization. There are other good options that maintain warlocks unique.

I've often wondered why "Enslave Demon" was so lackluster. It's like, "Cool...I can enslave random demons, but who really gives a shit?" One thing that disappoints me is that affliction no longer has the option of using either Succubus or Felhunter, as it did in the beginning of the expansion. Also, the Voidhunter seriously needs a revamp. Yes, it's useful to people soloing quests sometimes during their leveling. However, it's really just useless beyond that...
