Nov 21st 2008 11:24AM This is really frustrating for me, especially as my main is a warlock. Why on earth would they bother making the Ebon Shadowbag possible if having it is going to become pointless? I LIKE the idea of having to prepare lots of soul shards for large group summons. It's not like they're hard to procure (anyone else ever gone on a Drain Soul kick and ended up with ten more than you need? >_< ) and I like the feeling that you need to make preparations for the ritual.
This is the same sort of bogus "fix" as the removal of the necessity of the Dreadsteed quests--but don't even get me started on that.
You're right, warlocks are full of hate: because of ridiculous changes like this.
