Gateway and Gimoire changes are good. Not sure how I feel about no Soul Shards off pets, though.

What the fuck, is that a joke?

Can't we have "+10% damage while DS is NOT active" instead?

Edit: Nvm. It's crossed out on the notes.

No, most did leave at cata that I know, too.  Cata ruined the playstyle of warlocks.  Soulswap is a terrible ability, and in an ideal world would either not exist or be a very long cooldown.  Also, RIP shadow embrace.

Everyone left at cata. It has nothing to do with warlock balance.

12m->9m subs in that expansion alone.

On topic: I'm still sticking with my destro prediction for next patch. :P I get the feeling that Blizz doesn't want to give Aff what they want, and in the end the spread damage won't be significant enough to outweigh the better healing of destro (especially after damage reduction is taken out). Plus drain soul is looking to be even worse than live when compared to shadowburn with these nerfs.
Bye again! This game isn't fun when you don't know anyone else that still plays.

I'm pretty sure shadow priest/affli lock was insanely op in season 1? That's what I've been told anyway.
Warlocks were also very strong in shadowcleave when they got full gear in season 5.
Season 9 warlocks weren't bad at all, except possibly outshined for some time after they stealth-nerfed corruption and before we got shadow bite buff, and while spriests still had their defensive dispel without cd.

People had to literally carry and swap into full shadow resist sets when the gates opened if they were against lock/spriest. It's the entire reason they nerfed the ability to change gear mid game.

So yes, you're correct. Also 2346. Lock rdruid. Locks have never had a bad season til s12.

Why is literally every warlock thread filled with other classes whining about warlocks from past seasons?
