I was in for a rude awakening. My "ability" as a warlock while leveling as Demonology did not translate well to lvl 90 dungeons, heroics, etc.. Surprise! Just getting to 90 does not make you a good player (lol.) My DPS is just terrible - comments from fellow group members are pretty much every instance - and I'm generally pulling around 20k. I get embarrassed, sometimes leave the group, and reluctantly switch to something that I know how to play properly.
I play my warrior well and I am currently working on a DK that has been a blast, but I just kind of look at my warlock, sitting there at the character selection menu, and feel bad. I really want to play this guy! I want a challenge and I know warlocks offer that, but I just can't seem to wrap my head around their stats, priority ("rotation"), cooldowns, talents, and glyphs. I have read the WoW forums, watched the Fatboss video, and follow the Icy Veins website to a "T", but I must be missing something somewhere.
I don't really know what I am hoping to achieve by sharing my pain here. I guess, if there might be some other locks that might remember what it was like in MoP working through the "learning curve" again who may have a few pointers. Maybe a "laymans terms" sort of break down on priorities, stats, anything? Helpful links? I guess it's not a huge issue either way - I do have plenty of enjoyable characters to play - but the feeling of "defeat" that I've gotten from this one - that I previously played well once upon a time - is quite frustrating!
