Miss wording on my part, as an annual pass holder whenever they decide to shoot me my invite.

I've done a couple heroics solo, but that's not a good demonstration of warlock tanking with a group of other people.

So I did Hour of Twilight!
There are so many AOE buttons that I almost don't know what to use. So I just kind of used them randomly to see how effective they'd be. Aside from Murozond, things died so fast it didn't really tell me anything, but I had NO problems ripping aggro off the actual tank.

The actual incoming damage was practically a non-issue. If I actually took damage, I could just drain it back, especially with a group of mobs. Sacrificial Pact is an insanely large absorb (~130k), Demon Soul's effect grants mastery to Demonology, which converts to damage reduction through the glyph. My base reduction from Meta is 74%, and With Demon Soul up, my reduction is about 130-140%. Moonwell Chalice bumps it up to 99%. Cookies give me 34k HP now.
The only real problem is melee mobs that like to shield bash. It doesn't do a whole lot for the most part, but it restricts your drain usage.

Wow so currently it's insanely OP. Looks like you could have easily soloed the whole instance.

I want Beta, Lazer Warlock Tanks ftw.

Can you make more videos? (Maybe with less Music). I'd love to see some more. Ontop of that maybe see if you can get Recount or Skada working? I'm sure we'd all love to see how much Damage you're doing. Other then that some more fights and dungeons maybe?

So cool...

I'm curious how this works out, in the end. If glyphing alone can make a pure into a viable tank, this could have major implications to the pure/hybrid debate in the long run.

I, for one, would loooooove to tank on my 'lock.

I think after a balance pass or 6 this will be a very fun new addition to the game!

It doesn't look good if we can't queue as tanks =(

Still plenty of time to work that out. I'm guessing that this is a thought that if Blizz doesn't let us queue as tank that the idea of a viable Lock tank won't be fleshed out?

Even if it never comes to pass and you get the tanking itch, there's always guild runs or at least queuing up with a tank and swapping roles once the dungeon pops.

That video has me pretty excited though. I'm sure the tactics will be worked out, but it straight up looks like a fun spec to tank as. If this goes live, I can see a lot of tenured tanks getting pretty jealous.

Note to self: Turn off FRAPS' record windows sound option.

I'd love to see a recount, but I don't know if anyone's gotten them working, and the game is unstable enough as it is.

Thanks for the videos.

Do you know how you were selected to enter the beta? Is it because you have the annual pass, or another reason?

Account active since november 25, 2004 (no breaks), bought annual pass within the hour it was announced. Beyond that it's probably some luck, and I'm sure system specs are a smallish factor, too.

That's probably by biggest concern about the spec next to the needed bug fixes. We've got a ton of instant AoE to spend fury, but no real single-target fury spenders.
