I had a Destro lock for a while through MoP and loved him ( Lysergica | Bleeding Hollow )

After the patch in November, before the full release of WoD, I stopped playing because everyone knows they trashed Destro locks to hell.

I am curious to play again and don't really want to start a Frost Mage or some type of Druid as I love playing lock, especially Destro was a lot of fun.

Is any spec of lock viable to play in pvp? What spec? What is the best comp w/ said spec?

Thanks,
Lysergica

LSD with demo warlock or WLS with affliction warlock. Demo will get nerfed in 6.2 and affli will get buffed.

The only fun thing to do on warlock right now is annoy people with demon/healer 2s.

It's not very enjoyable. I'd recommend playing a mage or shadow priest if you like casters.

could you elaborate? arenamate tells a different story

...sure?
imagine if i said "mages are top tier right now" and you answered with "outside of godcomp and RMD this statement is false".

Great example of the current scourge of AJ shitposting.

Moonkins not really decent? Ele shaman not really shit? Or not really for both? Find out next time on an episode of: Forum posters gone wild!

As to the main point:

-warlocks are not fun to play because affliction rot comps are not as effective....aaand: the other two specs have to cast in a meta with too many interrupts.

Im pretty sure you think ele shamans are shit because no one plays them on US servers at high rating. Just like boomkins ele shamans only work in 1/2 comps. LSD is a top tier comp unlike frozenchicken cleave or whatever it is called.

you can work out a million comps with healer/mage/x, whilst you can't do the same with ele or boomy
are the latter 2 trash? no
are they less flexibe than a mage regarding comps? yes
