I've played around the 2k range most seasons, but I've had a hard time dealing with warlocks even at the 1750-1850 range this season. In 2s I'm usually playing with a hunter or rogue, and we've been playing thug in 3s. Our record is even worse when the lock is paired with a sham (which is the majority of the time).
The main struggles I'm having are:
- Keeping up HoTs against two purgers (sham + lock pet)
- Reliably getting clones against two ranged interrupts + grounding totem
- Simply keeping up with healing. Dark Soul gets popped and it's all I can do to keep people alive, much less get CC out
Obviously I have issues avoiding CC and I should be faking more. It's odd; it feels like the lock pet interrupts are harder to juke. I don't know why. I also have a hard time finding the right time to dispel - I end up silencing myself far too often, thinking it's worth it (it's usually not). We've joked about me getting a bash or incap on the lock pet so that I can safely clone; is that worth it? How am I supposed to keep up with Dark Soul damage + purges?
Any other advice would be appreciated.
