Hello initiates of the dark arts. The aim of this thread is to provide a single, collected location for links to me multiple, scattered guides, along with links to other outside resources I support. If you have something you want to have added, or want to suggest a change, feel free to post in this thread.

I'll be updating this tread as often as possible, and definitely whenever I post another guide. Also, feel free to offer up suggestions for external resources and guides.

Primers
My Primer series of threads are written as all-inclusive and in-depth guides about all of our spells, skills, glyphs, talents, and minions.

Outside Resources

Legacy of the Masters (Part 1):
http://www.wowhead.com/item=83078
Required reading if you're interested in the new Warlock lore in MoP. You can read it in the above Wowhead link, or you can find a copy in-game near nearly every Warlock class trainer.

Simulationcraft
http://www.simulationcraft.org/
Simcraft is the best WoW combat simulation available outside of Blizzard HQ. It is an incredibly valuable tool for figuring out how to best optimize your gear and your rotation, and I would highly encourage everyone to go figure out how to use it for personal use.

Evrelia's Warlock Guides
http://wowraids.org/warlocks/
So far these are the most informed warlock guides I've seen for MoP. If you're looking for some solid general-use guides (I tend to get super specific and detailed), these guides are definitely worth your time.

Whyvette's Panda-Monium Levelling Guide
http://us.battle.net/wow/en/forum/topic/6232904004
This is a great quick reference for newer 'locks looking to get started. Whyvette as a rather exhaustive list of every ability we learn, each with a short 1-2 sentence description and other information.

A View Into the Void: Warlock Tanking
http://us.battle.net/wow/en/forum/topic/6571627325
A very solid guide on Demo's Glyph of Demon Hunting by Ráwr/Zolteth. If you're thinking about experimenting with warlock tanking, you should definitely give this a read.

DoT Haste Spreadsheets
Level 85: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0AsDL8HE-bGDVdElxR3ZxeVgtUWFDcV9kMXU4ZC1KekE#gid=12
Level 90: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0AsDL8HE-bGDVdFFVWlIzbzQ5RFJJZGFyQ25xZmFYa0E#gid=12
Many thanks to Keldion for compiling these spreadsheets. DoT haste spreadsheets are very useful tools (especially for Affliction) for figuring out how much haste you'll need to gain additional ticks on your DoTs.

Gladiator Guide to Warlocks
http://us.battle.net/wow/en/forum/topic/6893639862
A solid general PvP guide full of tips, tricks, macros, gear suggestions, and talent and glyph assesments.

{One more for good measure.}
This better get to sticky. We should all be reading these.
I am looking forward to the Demo topic and will you also be doing an Affliction explanation as well?

Yep, I'm planning on doing it after Demo.
I'm really looking forward to utilizing all of this guides with my new warlock I'm leveling. Thanks Fallen for these amazing guides!
This is awesome. Great work, Fallensaint!

Thanks for indirectly reminding me that I should've added Whyvette's leveling guide for MoP.
Obviously a lot of hard work has went into these guides and i would like to say ty bro.

Sticky requested.
I'm very impressed. I needed these- after un subscribing for 5 months I needed this to help retrain.

Did you also do a Demo Tanking article? If not, looking forward to seeing that!

Thanks. I'll likely be including a DA section in my upcoming Demo guide. I might also do a more thorough Demo Tanking guide later on, but no promises on that one.
Please can we get this STUCK to the top! Please, too many new threads that this addresses so many of the questions that are being brought up.

Thanks again Fallensaint.
Again. This needs to be front page top. Please sticky.
I've updated the thread to include links to PotBH #5, the Legacy o the Masters lore book, and Keldion's DoT haste spreadsheets for level 85 and 90. I'll likely be removing the level 85 link after MoP hits live, just to keep things clean.
Bump. This needs to be stickied.
/bump to the land of sticky
Requested for sticky!
Thanks so much for this! I was just looking around for a spreadsheet on Afflict Lock haste thresholds too... <3
