In Topic: Best spec for new, bad lock?

So we've got a mage (djwizardx) saying mage is harder to play than lock, followed by a lock (kittenslayer) saying that lock is harder to play than mage, doesn't really help the guy out.

If you're new to DPS, whichever class you choose will be a good place to start. Just try and queue any arena games wherever possible and soon enough you'll get better as a player and can then decide what class suits you best.

edit: But i'd recommend that you focus on affliction as there are a lot of comps that you can play

Nice try baiting an argument

I'll only respond to the original question and why I made my actual recommendations.  He stated he has issues with dps i.e. sustained damage/pressure (afflic is out) he also stated he has issues finding burst opportunities.

If anyone argues its easier to find burst opportunities as destruction compared to a mage you are trolling or retarded.


You will have 50-75% less keybinds as a mage depending on how ambitious you are with focus macros.  Burst opportunities will be much easier to set up.  Better opener, better counterspell.

It will suck if you get trained in 3s comps but you will be superior in every way in 2s.

He also said he's not great at finding "cast" opportunities in pvp.  Frost mages cast less than afflic locks and destro locks be real.

Stop being butt hurt about your class/spec, be honest with yourselves and give this guy some real advice so he can enjoy the game pre-WOD.

People have been doing this most of MOP to be honest and you will find it on guides all over including skill capped.  Only time I wouldn't use singe to remove cc is if I'm destro b/c havoc + silence is great.

I take imp vs most hunter comps when playing with healers that I don't trust.

As afflic I would say I use felhunter 50% of time, 25% I use imp, and 25% I use sac (imp or felhunter) b/c spellcleaves.

In Topic: 1 vs 1

I don't have much exp with duels but selling 2s caps lately has put me in several 1vs1 situations.  I feel like killing a healer is nearly impossible if they know what they are doing.  They should leave the arena though b/c if you wait till dampening you have a huge advantage.

Hunters are easy as afflic and nearly impossible as destro if they know what they are doing.

Rogues are easier as afflic and very difficult to finish as destro.  They will just hump pillars without dots and get free restealths.

Warriors are easy as afflic and really hard as destro.

Only classes that are easier as destro than afflic seem to be balance druids and mages.

You might not want to hear this but, I wouldn't really recommend lock at the moment if you are looking for an easy mode dps class to get your feet wet with pvp.  If I was you, I would buy WoD and get a free 90, then roll it into a warrior, hunter, or mage, which are probably the easiest classes to play right now.

If you couldn't do damage and pressure as afflic in cata (one of most OP times for afflic) you will get zero damage out now and waste shards.

If you can't find openings for burst destro will be very frustrating.

You need easy to execute cc/burst classes such as hunter and mage.
