I play a warlock and I honestly don't know where the whole 'we never get anything nice" and "just like always, we get something awesome and they take it from us" type responses are coming from. I mentioned tonight to a guildie that the lock population is starting to sound a whole lot like paladins.....Statistically locks are one of the least played classes, something that is evident right through the leveling process (the original cynwise blog plus follow up on the lvling numbers is well worth reading). PvE and PvP are both solidly performing, but the class itself is fairly unpopulated. There are design flaws in my opinion - things like pets being tied specifically to specs. Our destro lock can't provide the int buff from the fel hunter, if we don't have a mage in the raid, without seriously gimping his dps, because inbuilt in the destro talents is a dps boost from the imp. I don't believe hunters have that kind of penalty if they bring a different pet for a specific buff. However, I doesn't feel like the class as a whole has been promised a wealth of things over the years and Blizzard hasn't delivered. So I'm not quite sure where that response is coming from. Removing HGWT makes me want to beat my head against a wall, since I know from painful experience that summoning ppl individually is a pita, the failure rate on summons is about 1 in 3 because someone can't help but move, and people are lazy sods that will not make the simple effort to get to where they should be outside a raid on time. Im' still bitter about the guy in vanilla that asked for a summons to an ony raid, then went afk for nearly 5 mins without telling anyone. The RL gave the locks hell for not summoning the guy. Yes, I'm still bitter.
