I am not the only player who shelved his warlock in Cata. But now that quality of life has improved, the rotations have been streamlined a bit, and each spec feels unique, its no surprise you see warlocks out in the world again.

I'm sure the FotM hypothesis is valid to a certain degree, but I think it mostly has to do with players who no longer hate playing the class because of the improvements.

Right.

I shelved this toon in cata. But once I heard of the new warlock changes I figured I'd try them out. So far though, it feels ... it feels clunky to me like I'm learning the class for the first time but it looks really good (cool animations and stuff). I almost feel like picking up a shelved 80 provides a very difficult learning platform compared to starting from scratch with a level 1 toon.

thats because they pretty much re did the class so even experienced warlocks had to learn new things so its all good lol some ppl picked up quick others it takes a while and i wouldnt say warlocks have been simplified i really dont feel like it got any more simple then it already was but thats from my point of view i just notice the increase in damage O_o for one to say it was simplified is strange cus i thought it was simple b4

More people playing means more things getting noticed and eventually ignored.. I mean fixed, defiantly meant fixed.

Well, I'm guilty of leveling a lock. I actually had a lock in the past that I got to level 44 before deleting. I'll admit, they were not fun to play in my opinion. But with the new changes in 5.0.4, they are appealing and fun to play now.

But don't worry, my hunter is and always will be my main toon and the only toon I worry about with raid progression and other things. Warlocks are fun, but hunters are still my favorite. I'm not the type of person to jump to a new class just because they are the hot dps of the expansion.

are you high? theyre soo much more simple than they were. the button use as been cut in half for destruction. demonology you only have to worry about fury and keeping doom/corruption up and affliction.. well affliciton is about the same. warlocks had by far the hardest dps rotation in cata. enough so that many people were unable to play the class simply because of that.

The class never really appealed to me before.

They changed stuff and I want to try it now. Go figure.

I'm really sorry if I am making people feel less special though! :(

I think another low pop class just went through this in 4.3 with legendaries. Now that changes have been made in the direction of normalization, they're dropping like flies because they're broken/nerfed too hard/unplayable/etc.

Keep playing your lock. Have fun with it. You'll be the specialest snowflake again soon enough.

I guess what is implied is that the 'hipsters' are Warlocks? Do I get a cookie?

I'm pretty tempted to play a warlock after what elemental has become.

i miss the time of locks having elite status for being able to pull competent dps.


My... my high horse. It's gone! How could you Blizz? *sob*

That about sum it up?

All joking aside, I plan on leveling a lock. They seemed meh before, but I like the look of new resource systems. Also a burst spec. I love me some burst.

I started in BC and my first level 70 was a Warlock and I had so much fun. The thing that killed it for me in LK was that you pretty much got stuck going one spec for PvE and one spec for PvP, and even through most of Cata this was true. However, I believe Warlocks have really benefited from the new talents in that you can play whatever spec you want. I also enjoy how each spec plays differently now. I am currently playing destro with grim of sac and giving the top geared mage in my guild a run for his money on damage done in heroic DS. I really think Blizz got the changes right on this class and as such that is why we see so many people jumping on them. However, when "balancing" happens and some other class gets to be all OP people will jump on that class, so don't worry, I don't see Warlocks staying popular long.

Same here Chardeth. Lock was my very first toon, ever. I got on WarCraft just before BC came out. I see locks everywhere now and in every race. I believe there will be an adjustment in our class soon as it's always been a class that Blizz didn't really care for that much in the past. I hope I'm wrong, but the devs never gave us any love before, did they?

FOTM!!! One thing I really hate about this game is blizz buffing certain classes every other patch thus making people all sudden pick up that class because now they think they can play because its basically about overpowered spells. That being said it does not bother me about locks because 1) I don't care and 2) once we get hit with nerf bat and people realize that running solo and not being able to survive or peel off melee we will lose most of them and they will go play their mage or something.

Started in Wrath lock was my first toon always will be my favorite toon and to sum it up simply locks rule. lol So can't say I blame the bandwagon locks out there but they will learn and crawl into whatever dark little holes they came from when faced with a real lock most likely. lol

I await the great nerfening. That will weed out the pretend warlocks. Only a true warlock is resilient to nerfs.
