I'm sorry guys but I have no sympathy for you in that regard. You had alpha, you had beta, you had ptr and days worth of reading feedback. I know it's not simple to modify a class in the snap of a finger but how difficult could it be if you had all this time and information at your hand and are still struggling after nearly a year?
Good acknowledgement for the lock community...People here saying locks do good DPS. Its not just about DPS numbers. This is half the problem these days. DPS only care about being at the top of that meter. Warlocks specs are really bad to play they lack any fluid rotations. It's clunky and doesn't make sense. Class fantasy doesn't really fit. Class campaign was poor because all NPC locks are generally bad guys.Anyone doing good dps with a lock as learnt to manage the bad.It's nice to see that the community was right to complain about the loss of burning embers etc... There are concerns about the class generally.
demonic empowerment doesn't feel fun. In fact every time I cast it I feel like my rotation has this awkward gap in it. I'm like HAH demon bolts raaawr, have a METEOR OF DEAAATH AND IIIIMPS, have some DOGS mofo, wahahaha, wait wait , gotta stand here and waggle my hands real fast. There, I did something. Honest. Okay, back to the fun stuff.
Quit crying over demon Hunter if your not doing good dps you are either geared wrong and you don't know how to play it. People denied you mainly because more then 70% of DH are crap my buddy whose 8 ilvl then my BM hunter can keep up with me so it's not the class it's the players. Secondly warlock stop complaining your not even in a bad spot how about the specs no one is currently maining like ele sham or survival hunter they both need a lot of work and I don't even play those specs.
Everyone is forgetting the biggest elephant in the room. Right now I have to completely respec between every single raid boss. If I don't do this it is over 100k dps difference on some fights. The talent system is completely broken. These were meant to be slight modifiers. Not complete game changers. AOE, Single Target, Ranged Cleave, Mobility, and Mechanic. I have a different spec for each of these. I have to spend a tomb on every fight or drop a portal and get summoned back. The only exception in EM is Neth and Ursoc if we do them in that order I can use the same spec. It is this way for a lot of classes. Also, specific to warlocks. The AOE damage is useless (at least for destro), by the time the second tick of RoF hits the DHs have already killed all adds. I don't even switch for low health adds any more. There is no point as I cannot damage them fast enough to matter. The mind control on Neth our DH can solo bring the entire raid down to 50% in less than 2 seconds as long as he is not MC'd too. We work the entire encounter and around whether he is going to get MC'd and it is easy mode because of it.
All sooky whingers! A cup of concrete required for you all. Someone has to be top dps and someone has to be bottom. If you keep running your classes down and telling ppl they are no good then of course they won't take you. Start promoting your classes and learn to live with their foibles. They all have their chance to shine.
Warlock, it is not your time.
Destro is noskill since wotlk so i dont care about any changes.
ITT: Every class is broken apparently, but no real criticism is provided as to why, just whining.
