Fighting at Pillar 1, lock ports to Pillar 2, then instant port to Pillar 3.

How is any comp supposed to counter that?

I think you are supposed to interrupt the 5 second cast before he can set it up.

^also.

Why do you always train the warlock? Not to mention many classes have ways to break the gap.

Can't wait for similar threads to pop up regarding Wild Charge + Life Grip.

People are chaining abilities for increased effect! More at Eleven! For now here's Jackie Johnson with the weather balloons.

Ret/DK. Oh darn, guess you guys can't mount up, ride in, and 100-0 the Lock before he can even do anything anymore.

So your guild name + comp is now not effective against warlocks?

TO THE FORUMS! THE INJUSTICE! THE HORROR!

Uh what? RLS was the most OP 3v3 comp last season, nice try...

And I am running hpal/dk, not ret

And now we know not to let them get the 5 sec cast off at the beginning of the match. Im sure well be able to keep that interrupted as well when we're being instant feared for 8 seconds as well..wasn't trolling at all, was looking for a viable way to counter the portal

Since you asked nicely, I'll give you several:

Paladin:
http://www.wowhead.com/spell=96231
http://www.wowhead.com/spell=853
http://www.wowhead.com/spell=20066
http://www.wowhead.com/spell=115750

Death Knight:
http://www.wowhead.com/spell=47528
http://www.wowhead.com/spell=47476
http://www.wowhead.com/spell=49576

Mage:
http://www.wowhead.com/spell=2139
http://www.wowhead.com/spell=44572
http://www.wowhead.com/spell=113724
http://www.wowhead.com/spell=102051

and if the mage is Fire spec there's also:
http://www.wowhead.com/spell=31661

All of the above are faster to cast/use than the 5 seconds it takes to cast a demonic gateway. As for the "instant feared for 8 seconds" unless you're all humping the warlock and eat a howl of terror with no trinkets, there's no way he's able to CC all 3 of you at the same time for 8 seconds.

He was most likely talking about 2v2 where warlocks weren't viable at all unless paired with a resto shaman. Also, I can't take you seriously if you think that RLS was strong because of the warlock. I was strong because of rogues with legendary/vial, the warlock was nothing more than a fear bot and a train target. As far as I know, RMP was just as strong and that isn't a lock comp.

personally having used the dam thing i think its going to be only used in certain raid bosses where they make the thing mandatory. I love the comments people been posting here, good times.

How dare we find an actual use for our spells!!!!

Its takes about 5 seconds to cast, witch feels like a year in arena. Most DKs seem to go for me like a fly to a S*!t, and I'm not going to try and cast Demonic Gateway with a DK doing the salmon dance on me.

You are bad and should feel bad.

When in the history of all gaming has it ever been an acceptable thing to allow a caster to finish a five second cast? I mean, are you that arrogant towards casters? Sigh.

Basically
A) Learn to interrupt
B) The Gate is kind of obvious. It's not like you don't know where he is going to appear
C) The gate needs to build charges before it can be used. so it's not something that be used constantly.

If you let him get off a 5 second spell and then let the thing build up to more than 1 charge, WTF have you been doing?
