#4404238 Life of a Warlock

Posted Lolflay on 24 March 2015 - 03:32 AM

What planet are the people in this thread living on ? From a random guy who's talking about Destruction ( ?!?!?!??! ) to whining about being killable by anything.

My only issue is that warlocks feel boring to play without all the tools they used to have, and having to fakecast 24/7 / not being able to do anything when I get kicked.

Not having nearly enough buttons to keep myself entertained also leads to being bored as fuck. Guy wants to kite me ? Sure, CoEX/Shadowfl.. oh, wait. Fuck.

PvE side of things is shit as well, outside of padding on AoE fights. They said that Warlocks were reworked in Mists unlike other classes, so they'd not touch Warlocks at all while all the other classes got reworked - they destroyed affliction in PvE ( going from super potent single target/multi target spec that had a interesting rotation and an even more interesting execute phase to a class with 5 binds that you don't even have to think about ), and subsequently destroyed the mechanics that kept the spec afloat.

Playing a Warlock atm feels like playing an unfinished product. It obviously works, but it's not satisfying at all.

Posted Fakalock on 20 March 2015 - 07:35 AM

I cant agree with u more... It is just not fun doing 2s as warlock (i only do it so i can get the 2.2k achiv.) Vs most comps i spend atleast 50-60% of the game standing still faking and making sure agony and curruption dosn't fall off. Some times i can kite away with soulburn port. Unforturnatly that only results in me accually getting one or two UA's up and nothing else.

I play Affli/rhsam. vs some comps we accually rape. Vs hunter/healer we have maby a ~80% winrate. Lucky for us thats a Fotm comp, so there is a alot of them. Struggle tho is when we face rogue paired with rdrood or rsham... Then we cant seem to win at all. I ge so little pressure that the enemy healer barley has to do anything. Vs rogue/Rdrood they never ever gets a clone off vs us. never! And they still just rape us in dampening. Every single time we accualy get pressure there is a cloak. The rogue dosnt even need to get of me to get sap out of blind or for a kick on my sham...

But then again i guess its surpose to be a bit like that. I mean, shaman is IMO the strongest healer vs a lock (all casters realy) so it should be hard ass hell...

Concidering that blizzard never readds something that they once removed I guess we will never get CoE or the breath thingy back, I would like to se them make the soulburn port be basic built in to the port. So that you get the sprint without a shard... That could make live a bit easier but still hard vs some comps...

One thing I've noticed accually helps vs quite a bit of comps is not to run with the "movment imperial effects"-trinket. But to run dubble dps trinkets instead (im UD) the proc and on use one. when the proc does it magic, fake one interupt->SF->fear the other target (generally a healer) and pop on use trinket + ds and burst the one not in cc down. Thats never enought for someone to die, but u get quite a bit of defensives. And u can folow up the fear with hex. I only use the "movment imperial effects"-trinket vs comps with alot of cc for me. I.e. mage/rogue, ret/rogue, mage/feral. Hunter/healer got lots of cc but i run dubble dps anyways.. else i wount score kills.

Sry for the novel ^^

They're squishy and can't peel their for their healers that well.

Can't peel at all unless you play surv, wyvern is the only CC we have that doesn't require a previous form of CC to land but can be dispelled by all and I mean ALL hybrids in dps specs (rets/monks etc), we have the worst kick in the game (24 sec CD, 3 sec lockout as opposed to 6 sec lockout of lock's pets and counterspell, melees kicks are on 15 sec CD and 4 sec lockout.)  Squishy as point out before, no selfheal if we want to be abit more tanky with iron hawk.

Seriously, In past seasons I have played lock up to the same rating as of my hunter, and played mage on AT aswell, I seriously, seriously don't understand how people can complain about a single trap every 30 sec or 20 if you play surv (12 sec traps were retarded though) when having a spammable CC that's literally target & click and you can rotate between DRs and fear/poly everyone unless it's a war or druid in form, it's extremely superior in all cases, I've never had a problem landing a fear on my lock and mages were/are even easier to play.

A last edit, not saying hunters are up, nobody is saying that, but, correct me if Im wrong I think surv damage isn't over the top right now, maybe only crows, but I didn't really do the math about them, because of that, surv retains abit more peel than the other specs and is actually a goodd utility spec.

MM is simply useless right now because damage is dogshit, burst is alright, but it has 0 utility.

BM is OP because barrage + 5 stacks + bw simply does broken damage, not just that though, it also has pretty good utility with exotic pets, see spirit beasts, they provide 5% crit, 500 mastery and a decent heal.

So all in all, outside BM and those old 12 sec traps I don't see how people can call hunters op, esp now that melee have a millions of gap closers and ways to break out roots/slows, without even talking about the fact that every melee has a fucking ranged, instant - unstoppable full stun on 30 sec CD.

#4398668 How to beat you?

Posted Dills on 10 March 2015 - 09:05 PM

I feel like BM hunters destroy mage druid, so it's really hard for you to do much @OP. Cross ccing to get as many deep sheeps is going to be really important for you to win games (kidneying/horror - depends on comp, on the hunter or his partner while the hunter and partner are going to be ccd as well when you go for deep>sheep/ring is important for kill set ups). Anytime he pops crows you'll have to just use a defensive cd and know that target is in a lot of trouble. Pretty much all bm hunter damage is just crows/barrage or purge spam, and all of those are really hard for you to deal with.

Realistically you're just going to lose some games randomly to bm hunters, even ones that you should have won, just kind of how the game is right now. If you really want to deal with them best, playing hpal godcomp or rmpal is probably way better than mage druid just because paladins are a lot stronger vs bm hunters due to being able to bop crows and just cd trade well with bm hunters, as well as not being hurt by purges in the ways that druids are.

If you just meant in like a situation other than arenas, just best bet is to block when they use crows/bw and just sit it until that's over and then try to pressure them after.

Lately a lot of hunters have been asking these basic questions and since the MoP r1 hunters have been un-able to answer and for reasons unknown keep on spreading mis-information, I decided to calculate the rough estimates for each spec which should be pretty accurate. Here are the rule of thumbs.

FAQ: What Scope to use:

BM - Mastery
MM - Multistrike
Survi - Multistrike

FAQ: What to enchant:

BM - Versatility
MM - Versatility
Survi - Versatility



FAQ: What stats to go for in 3v3 (MM):

Non-Tryhards: Agility > Versatility > Multistrike > Haste > Crit > Mastery
Tryhards: Agility > Versatility > Mastery > Multistrike > Haste > Crit

FAQ: What pet to choose (MM):

Non-Tryhards: Mortal Strike > 5% Agility > 3% Versatility > 5% Haste > 5% Crit > 5% Multistrike > 2,5% Mastery > 10% Stamina > 10% Spell Power
Tryhards: Mortal Strike > 5% Agility > 3% Versatility > 2,5% Mastery > 5% Haste > 5% Crit > 5% Multistrike > 10% Stamina > 10% Spell Power



FAQ: What stats to go for in 3v3 (Survi):

Agility > Versatility > Multistrike > Mastery > Haste > Crit

FAQ: What pet to choose (Survi):

Mortal Strike > 5% Agility > 3% Versatility > 5% haste > 5% Mastery > 5% Crit > 5% Multistrike > 10% Stamina > 10% Spell Power



FAQ: What stats to go for in 3v3 (BM):

Agility > Versality > Mastery > Multistrike > Crit > Haste

FAQ: What pet to choose (BM):

Mortal Strike > 10% Mastery > 5% Agility > 3% Versatility > 5% Crit > 5% Multistrike > 5% Haste > 10% Stamina > 10% Spellpower

Blizzard hotfixes 13.1.2015

Haste 11.1% more effective
BM Mastery 12.5% more effective


Survival arcane shot multistrikes give 1 extra tick to serpent sting -> Survival multistrike value adjusted
Simulated Values for Survival haste and agility added (See posts #123-131)
Survival "What scope to use"

#4396762 2s question afflock holy pala vs hunter rdruid

Posted Knaittiz on 05 March 2015 - 01:37 PM

You will need to use skype for sure or you will fuck up some cc chains. This game was with a paladin I picked up from premade groups, we overlapped almost everything and still beat a 2800 druid hunter:

HoJ+Repentance+3 fears (in whatever order) is your cc chain that you need to repeat enough times to win the game. Play pet sac so you can stop all casts (lol druid casting) which can lead to a mega combo (lockout+hoj+repentance+fears).

-Don't let the druid bash you especially when your spell lock is on cd / pet is sacced (you will get cloned)

-NS (lay on hands) always resets the fight and whenever it's on cd you need to force CDs or kill the hunter.

-Don't let the him LoS your damage when you have cc on druid.

-Don't waste cc when you have no damage or hunter is full hp with full HoTs.

I am also surprised every single time someone on my team dies 100-0 in 1 red spree.
That however does happen almost every game.
Except of course vs your team (daisyduke) because you and everyone you play with are so fucking awful they can't even perform the most simple of tasks.
If a rogue dies to a demo lock, he should look into uninstalling the game.

Like, really?

It doesn't require a genious to figure what will happen when you buff BM's hardest hitting ability by 21% and biggest dps CD by 60%.

I don't get the reference at all.  There should be two people arguing in the picture, a warlock and a mage.  Is this a picture of a Paladin watching a warlock and mage argue?

I think what lord Jimjim is trying to say here is that seeing mage vs warlock makes him happier than a retarded kid with an iphone

could be wrong on that one tho tbh
