Once again (I say this far to often it seems) sorry for the lack of posts over the last 2 weeks or so, I’ve been somewhat sick, which surprise surprise has ruined my concentration and ability to write.
But your probably not to interested in that, and more interested in the new patch that’s dropping within the next few days (or so I’m led to believe) (or maybe has dropped by the time your reading this) with some tasty changes for warlocks. So read after the break for a condensed version about the changes.
Today I’m going to talk about something a little different. Something interesting is happening in wow, that I don’t think we’ve seen before. The level of balance between the 3 warlock specs is currently such that, unlike before, there is no ‘real’ top spec. No spec that is 10-20% ahead of the others. At the same time we now have more tools than ever before to assess how well a spec is performing, not just in a sim, but in real raiding conditions, here I am talking about sites like stateofdps.com and the stratfu kamagami tools. These sites look at logging websites and pull out the top dps parses from sites like world of logs, and then take averages and other mathy things to give us some interesting information.
Ok, so you know how to play a warlock post 4.0, but you havn’t bothered to look up @85 changes? You want the cliff notes edition, quick and easy. Well here we go, this is going to be a fairly quick guide to the warlock changes at level 85, our new spells, and a few other important pieces relevant to warlocks.
Perhaps you’ve been to busy with a 11th hour, 59th minute and 58 second kill of LK or some such (I’m STILL trying to get bane, 30% wipe D:) and haven’t had a chance to look things up. Well here it all is.
