Today I’m going to try and go over some of the issues facing warlocks today in pve, in a “state of …” type post, they seem to be rather popular to be written about now. I’m going to try and stay away from listing “fixes”, blizzard has a ridiculous number of tuning nobs these days, they can fix things without to much hassle.
I also think that while all of our specs pull “respectable” DPS numbers, that doesn’t mean we aren’t “broken” and don’t have issues pertaining to the class. To quote a blue from some time ago (I believe it was GC at last years blizzcon, but I could be wrong), if the best rogue spec was to sit at range and spam knife throws/fan of knifes to do competitive DPS, that would be broken and in need of being fixed. While I don’t think we are in quiet as a extreme case as that, I believe we do have issues that could be looked at.
Also, in advance, I’m sorry, this sorta ended up being a bit of a wall of text, possibly the biggest I’ve ever written on here.
Ok, so I logged in today, and like most warlocks I went straight to the target dummys. What did I find?
Ok warlocks. I goto google. I type in “Warlocks are superior to mages” and I get a bunch of MAGE SUPERIORITY PROPAGANDA. Where is our warlock pride?
Its time to change this. Beginning here I shall blog the truth, and give reasons why warlocks are in fact far superior to mages (or any other class for that matter). I invite other warlocks to stand up for warlock pride and do similar. Mages need to be put in their place.
