Oct 3rd 2011 8:02PM I honestly don't see how making us more control-based instead of damaged-oriented makes anyone happy. We can't kill anything with this model and they can't kill us, might as well just be a healer in PVP. WoW PVP has understandably shifted towards utilizing cooldowns as the focus of combat and I'm fine with that, but I will agree that Fear has just not been the spell to build the class around. Why even have it if it causes such a balance problem? Turn it into a stun, which could make perfect sense, and makes it easier to balance instead of having to play the arms-race of needing to nerf it and counter it with so many spells.
Sep 13th 2011 4:38AM No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, and no. Don't you dare touch Immolation Aura Blizzard. Don't take away the skill in the spec. If you can't be in melee range on an encounter, switch to a different spec and live with the fact that you need to carry some different gear to support that situation. I like being able to "Hulk Out" and leap into a group of mobs and become an AOE god for a few moments, then portaling out and back to range when it's done. Skilled warlocks can play this spec extremely well, and the FOTM guys are writing articles like this. Sorry, it's been a great spec since Ulduar, and that's because of Immo Aura.
Mar 17th 2011 11:33AM I stopped raiding after ICC, after being a hardcore raider for 3+ years. Now I haven't even logged on for 6+ weeks to do anything meaningful, since raiding is done for me and I'm sick of the constant TB/daily grinding. This expansion has taken WoW downhill, and I speak from experience, not angst.

Nov 14th 2010 10:55AM Being a warlock got me hooked. The first time I feared someone there was no going back.
Sep 11th 2010 4:26PM Melee is for masochists. Tanking is for control freaks. Ranged are narcissists.
Sep 10th 2010 10:38PM You people get way too freaked out about some random guys random cat. you could pick any number of the world's problems to 'suddenly' have a heart about, but a cat?
Go ahead and down-rank me, hypocrites.
Sep 4th 2010 2:59PM Going with Wilk on that. But just to add, if Demo locks and Arcane mages are balanced around standing in melee range, but Cata mobs can one-shot cloth, how many chucks could a woodchuck chuck, if a woodchuck gets one-shot?
Aug 26th 2010 2:12PM If Blizz can't make a dollar, then they won't do it. Sorry triple spec's, I feel ya.
Aug 15th 2010 5:18PM I like healing anything that isn't a DK.
