Sep 30th 2008 7:37PM Interesting, Meira, because I have a mage main and am currently leveling his "evil twin" warlock (both gnomes ftw!). I'm having a blast with the different play style and the fact that my lock can take 4 mobs that are a level above, something that I could never to with my mage while leveling.
At the low levels, the mage is either kite-n-blast or shield-n-blast. The lock to me feels more like...juggling. For example, if there's a group of 4 mobs - m1, m2, m3, m4, I will:
1) Send my voidwalker on m1. Dot-dot m1.
2) Fear-dot-dot m2.
3) Fear-dot-dot m3.
4) Fear-dot-dot m4.
5) Look around and see if I need to life-tap, drain or help dps m1 to get it down.
6) Re-fear mobs coming back in and refresh dots as necessary.
7) When m1 goes down, switch voidwalker to m2 and continue fear juggling m3 and m4.
8) Repeat till all dead.
To me, it's an interesting feeling of eeeevil power! Bwahahaah. I'm using my demonic powers to control mobs instead of running away from them like my pussy mage "good twin". >:->
