Should you be playing a warlock?

Should you be playing a warlock
We've said before that there's a WoW class for every type of player and if you find yourself a bit drawn to the darker side of WoW, perhaps warlock is the one for you. Warlocks have a unique playstyle in the game: they're a bit like mages, in that they're cloth-wearing casters, and a bit like hunters, in that they rely on pets. And yet they don't play very much like either class, relying on DoT (damage over time) spells and channeled spells to do damage and restore their own health and mana.

So is it time to go over to the dark side and level a warlock? Let's look at what the class has to offer.

Just what is a warlock?
As mages are master of the arcane, warlocks are masters of the dark arts, focusing on shadow and fire spells. They summon demonic minions, place curses on their enemies, and drain health from their opponents, and can even send the most fearsome of warriors running in terror. Their abilities are powered not only by their mana pool, but will sometimes cost health, which warlocks can drain from their foes as they die. They do their damage at range, using curses, banes, DoTs, drains, AoEs, and direct damage spells. Warlocks also offer a good amount of utility to a group with conjured Healthstones (which restore health on use) and Soulstones (which can bring a dead player to life) as well as their curses (which cause a variety of negative effects on a monster).

Mists of Pandaria Beta: New warlock pets

One of the nice new warlock features coming about in Mists of Pandaria is new pets, thanks to the level 75 talent Grimoire of Supremacy. These pets are active on the beta, and we have some pictures to share.

It should be noted that the sizes might be off; it's not an uncommon beta bug to have pet sizes be strange at first. No idea if this is intentional, though, so take the size with a grain of salt.

The new warlock pets are:
  • Fel Imp (replaces the Imp when talented)
  • Wrathguard (replaces the Felguard when talented)
  • Voidlord (replaces the Void Walker when talented)
  • Shivarra(replaces the Succubus when talented)
  • Observer (replaces the Felhound when talented)
  • Abyssal (replaces the Infernal when talented)
  • Terrorguard (replaces the Doomguard when talented)
You can also check out the gallery below, but be sure to view it in high resolution to get the best images.

It's open warfare between Alliance and Horde in Mists of Pandaria, World of Warcraft's next expansion. Jump into five new levels with new talents and class mechanics, try the new monk class, and create a pandaren character to ally with either Horde or Alliance. Look for expansion basics in our Mists FAQ, or dig into our spring press event coverage for more details!
