Dec 28th 2007 8:04AM Both pets are completely useless, with the exception of the infernal wasting low level peeps in starting areas etc, and either pet for posing temporarilly.
Neither can be used at all in raids, because one can't be summoned inside, and the other requires someone being killed - only to be replaced by a naff pet which then goes and attacks the rest of the group.
If these two pets scaled better with shadow damage (1+shadow = 2AP?) or if there was a new one at level 70/80 then that would be great, because currently one of the only 2 'pet' classes in 25-man is actually better off sacrificing the pet. Hmmm...
In my daft world? Have Corruption set as a deep affliction talent and buff it dramatically. let Destrolocks have +damage/+hit built in to talents, and let Demonlocks have the ability to summon multiple pets, only build in a debuff that reduces the Warlock's output significantly per pet, with a preset cap, maybe of 2 or 3.
