Oh, please. I can't seem to re-call a post by you doing anything but complaining about MoP and how good the old days were.

Good players adapt. Yes, it was easy to do damage in MoP but good and average warlocks could still be differentiated from easily. While managing procs/snapshotting was really irritating to deal with, it was huge for determining which lock did more damage.

On topic: I think Soul Swap is only worth it if you have 3/4 shards if you have extended dots (dots last up to 130% of the original duration now instead of 150%). This changes at 100 though fortunately! I think we'll have a lot more Soul Swap usage then. Right now, it kinda sucks.

Remember the 2 set bonus at 100 (http://www.wowhead.com/itemset=-1115):

2 pieces Affliction: Getting stunned, silenced, interrupted, or feared generates 1 Soul Shard. Can only occur once every 15 sec.

Set bonus speaks for itself. We'll have a lot more shards to use. SB:SS might even be used every now and then at 4 shards.

side note: does Haunt still refund a soul shard on dispel?

yes you remembered correctly. Probably every post I made about mop was negative and rightfully so. I hoped it would change, but history has shown that it did not. MOP was horrendous and what they did to locks was just asinine.


You are right though that good players adapt. The issue is do you want to play a class that is utterly stupid now? I for one didn't. I lost all desire to play. I had no inclination to play anything other than rogue lock in 2s which I actually enjoyed because it has always been fun to me even with mop lock mechanics.

If you liked mop, so be it. I just don't understand how anyone could enjoy warlock game play in mop. I play to have fun and thus mop didn't do it for me.

haunt doesn't refund a shard on beta. and on beta, you are out or low on shards pretty much all the time.

In Topic: PvP Healing is OP in WoD Beta (reasons why)

I gave it a fair shot, I really did OP, but I have no idea what the actual fuck you're talking about.

uh healing is way op for non healers? i got it just fine.

Here is the problem. This community will bitch and moan about op and broken mechanics in pvp, but they wont do anything to help resolve or prevent them. I brought up many concerns about the beta on the official forums and asked aj people to help out by posting. Nobody did. The only people who actually post there were pve people lol.



Beta, as is, will be one of the most annoying things we have ever played if it goes live. Sadly, it's deserved considering how absent the pvp community is from providing actual feedback where it matters (not aj). Having said that, from a warlock perspective I am actually still looking forward to playing once again as warlocks are once again casters. They have made some really really good changes overal, but still there are many key issues that remain.


enjoy fighting some of the following:

-instant hunter traps
-retarded self healing by all classes except rogue mage and spriest
-extra trinkets still in game
-disc priests having silence
-guise feathers fear still in game
-the list goes on

Here is the thread I made addressing concerns in case you are wondering.

I believe Soul Swap is the number one spell that made Warlocks anti-fun. The best thing they can possibly do with this spell is completely remove it.



Cata was just as bad if not worse with how broken Soul Swap was with the Glyph. It kept the DoTs on the first target and brought to the new target with no draw back. If anything Warlocks were toned down for MoP. I was so fed with how stupid Warlocks were in Cata I quit in glad range.

LOL are you on meth atm?

mop was a tone done from cata?? cata locks were better but the mechanics

not even gonna bother bro, im gonna let that set in for ya :)

Warlocks who started in that shitfest mop are in for a big fucking wake up call.

At lvl 100 you are a mere fraction of what you were at 90 pre patch.

With one or two melee on you (and they will be on you), very low haste, no instant casts, its real work getting dots up on multiple people. Literally everything you do other than cor & agony is a casted spell. If you should fight a good healer who dispels, well you may as well get your tissues ready for all the crying you will do. Speaking of healers, trying to get a fear on a healer who is at a pillar is literally impossible now unless you sfury fear them.

I for one, love the changes. Its very very similar to wotlk afflic. Beta still needs work, but overall it has been fun so far.
