Apr 13th 2010 4:31PM Yes! The format for the column should be that they alternate turns: First Mr. Hobbs starts a sentence that Mr. Belt has to finish, then vice versa!
It would be epic!
Apr 13th 2010 4:15PM You're really picking on Mr. Belt for this article?
After traveling for a family funeral (stressful enough regardless of the relationship to the deceased), he produced two entertaining factual articles.
Mr. Hobbs' installment was great. By the end, I was eager to scroll down to the comments just to reassure myself that it was a joke. But nothing like that would have worked here, because we are all sitting here hitting refresh like a bunch of emo warlocks with too much eye liner (can't believe I just compared myself to a warlock - I feel so dirty) waiting to see how he will retaliate.
Mr. Belt jumped in, had some fun with the opportunity, playing well to the audience and circumstances. It was humorous, entertaining, and well done.
Apr 13th 2010 2:45PM I don't understand why... It's not like thay are *actually* gods....
Apr 13th 2010 11:48AM There's no need to be embarrassed about it. Most warlocks secretly wish they could be mages.
Well... The smart ones do.
But... if they were smart, they would have rolled a mage instead of a warlock. Let's face it. Most warlocks are only capable of sitting on the floor, playing with their imp, and wiping the drool off their chin with the fur of the nearest fel-puppy.
I guess, in retrospect, you should be proud for wanting to play a mage. It shows you have been stacking intelligence, and finally see that the greatest difference between the classes is not the minions, dots, and fears, but the raw mental prowess required to recognize the mage class as the flame-frosted ball of pure magic awesome cookie that it is.

Except - by fusing the mage with the lock, you would end up with something weaker than the mage. In order to really restore balance, nearly all warlock spells and talents would need to be replaced with those originally stripped from mages, and a third of the original warlock population would need to be set aflame as a sacrifice good and pleasing to atone for the sin of defining the class as warlock.
Apr 5th 2010 9:45AM It's always a joy when someone sees the light. But the initiation is to set a warlock on fire - not just shoot him. Any hunter can do that :P
Mar 22nd 2010 10:05AM Oops - forgot to post my tentative build. I'm sure it has parts that are wrong, but it is where I would start, just eyeballing it.
You would probably want the Improved Scorch, Permanent Water Elemental, and Frostfire glyphs.
Mar 22nd 2010 9:58AM I think that it would be viable (with the recent buff to Deep Freeze) if "Empowered Frostbolt" affected FFB like "Empowered Fire" does in the fire tree, and if the Replenishment buff from "Enduring Winter" could proc off of FFB as well.
We would really miss the crit increase from combustion, but we would be able to lead off with Scorch (glyphed to get the full buff), thenspam FFB until Deep Freeze proc'ed. 15% of the time, our main nuke would be an instant cast. It would be a relatively boring rotation, but it would be mana efficient, we would get a huge blow in every 30 sec from DF, have all of the survivability that makes frost so fun... I'm getting excited just dreaming about it.
Dec 28th 2009 10:53AM Personally, I think a warlock would make an excellent choice, as long as you don't mind cleaning up after them.
The best case scenario has all of the natural hatred warlocks generate making them the primary target, leaving you plenty of time to set things aflame. Even in the worst case scenario, you walk into the arena telling your opponents "We are so full of awesome in a jar, we don't need a real partner make you cry".
