Aura of the Elementsand Aura of Enfeeblement can now be dispelled as Magic effects.

Thoughts?

It's a joke to put it back up, but it looks like mages will love spellstealing it now.

Demo is our only good spec, and this is gonna significantly hurt Demo strength against certain comps.  I think the aura needed a change, but this is the wrong type of change.

There are a few other broken things about Warlocks, (like Blood Fear) which need to be changed as well, but they need to come with very large buffs in other areas.

What spec are you playing and can you link your current armory? The one I see is still level 85.

I can play it because it's by far our best spec...?  It's not my favorite Lock playstyle ever, but current Affliction and Destruction are possibly even worse, in terms of fun.

I thought demo was going slightly under the radar. I leveled my lock second in hopes that history will repeat itself and affliction will end up being decent again. I was in fact looking forward to cleaving as demo for a bit though.

Remove blood fear, bring back casted fear, bring back consistent damage around the board so that dps can pressure outside of cooldowns adding some form of skill to the idea of which team can outpressure the other (i.e. lock mirror, which lock fakes better, has better dot management and does more dmg overall and fears at the right time to create pressure/peel). This cooldown based game is rather boring I feel, and it makes it so that the difference between a top player and low player becomes even less, because everyone pops their swifty macro and blood fear can be pressed by a 1500 player or a r1 player, due to the execution being just as easy for any player. Delete instant CC, delete blankets, improve consistent damage, reduce burst on cds.

wtf?

Okay, so you need an offensive dispel to get it off? backwards

Using it vs mages will just be putting it on yourself? backwards

Hopefully this isn't serious and they just want to generate discussion of how they should change it. Should just remove Aura of Enfeeblement, keep Aura of the Elements, make people manually apply Enfeeblement

What spec are you playing and can you link your current armory? The one I see is still level 85.

As affli, play with a warrior/mage and you can get easy 2500.

What i basically do :

- Open with 3x soul shar/soul swap on everyone under burst macro, the warrior or mage choose a target, it can be the healer, we oneshotted a lot of healers just at the beginning by doing that.
- Put the blood fear CD in the middle of your screen or something and spam it when it's up, if you don't have a full DR on the healer, use it on a dps, i think bloodfear is the "key" of the win because this spell is OP.
- I usually keep a coil, a fear and my defensive cooldown for warrior burst, mage burst, demo burst etc ... You have to know when they are going to use their cds, then don't get oneshotted.

I haven't seen very many affliction warlocks at 2500 on NA realms. I don't think it's a thing here.
