This is exactly why warlocks have a right to complain. Currently, Alliance has Fearward for only a priest IF you choose one of the two races that get it. Horde get WotF for an entire race. This already places the favor on the Horde side.
There are 26 race/class combinations for Horde. 5 of these get WotF.
There are 26 race/class combinations for Alliance. 2 of these get Fearward.
If you are an affliction warlock, you get two "oh $h!t" buttons. But, basically fear is our only (used to be reliable) method of defence. For a warlock to even get off a fear they need to be in combat range, and stand still for the 1.5 second cast. If this is avoided through Fearward, they must stand still another 1.5 seconds to cast it again. By that time the warlock is already getting beat on (if they have not already chosen to run away), been CC'd themselves, or is dead. So... now they must rely on either deathcoil or Howl of Terror to be off cool down to stay alive?
There is a huge balancing issue here.

Ok, so let me get this straight.
Fear is horrible now. As already stated, it's more of an interupt ability now... with a casting time.
Currently for an affliction lock:
Fear - Gives a warlock a "chance" to run away while DoTs tick.
Deathcoil - Gives a warlock a "chance" to run away while DoTs tick.
Howl of Terror - Gives a warlock a "chance" to run away while DoTs tick.
Curse of Exhaustion - Gives a warlock a "chance" to run away while DoTs tick.
Get the point? DoTs take a while before they will kill something/someone, and thats if its not a healing class (then you can forget it). So now a warlock's only hope is to DoT and hope they can run out of combat range? I think affliction locks are horribly broken right now because of this.

Coca Cola (Blizzard): "People that bought Diet Coke are QQing because they didn’t get the sugar that’s in regular Coke. Let's make them all the same!"
Coke Drinkers: "Why the hell didn’t you just buy a regular Coke if you wanted the extra sugar?"
