I apologize in advance if this is in the wrong spot and also if this has been brought up before in another thread.

Why are Warlocks getting a whole unique scenario and quest line for something as simple as green fire? I mean, that seems to me something that could of been a glyph. Druids have the Glyph of Stars which gives them an Astral Form. That also could of been that also could of turned into a scenario to perhaps align them with cosmos and what not.

I guess my question is, Why is this similar to Rogues getting an exclusive quest line for a legendary? Will this happen more for each class?

Been asking for it since their inception. It's sort of an apology from Blizzard in my opinion. That and maybe the herald of things to come. Perhaps we'll see more quests similar to this in the future for other classes.

Because it's something that has been requested for ages. Warlocks barely get anything besides neat clothes. I think Blizzard is just doing this to either

A: Spoil the warlocks who have stayed with the class even if their population is low
B: Lure in new warlocks to come play.

It's not that exciting. It's just Black Temple and it looks exactly the same as it did in the raid. The bosses actually require knowing how to play a warlock.

Was wondering when these posts would start up. The not fair posts.

Instead of people complaining that warlocks get something like this, they should be hoping its a great success and well received, and starts a trend for cool quest lines like this for other classes.

I'm not saying "NOT FAIR" I'm merely posing this question as it's just cosmetic to a spell yet other classes have a glyph for cosmetic spells.

*Edit* and also if this a "more to come" as I referred to the Rogue quest line.

Why make it into a boring old glyph when you can have an exciting questline that expands on the lore of your class?

Don't look at it at a class favoritism way. Look at it like this: the green fire quest may just be Blizzard testing the waters for class specific scenarios and questlines. Ones that make the old class quests look passe' and pitiful. (Not that that's hard mind you)

But that's the response I was hoping for. How cool would it be if the island was similar to DKs being able to go back to there starting zone or Monks doing the same thing, having their own unique area in Kun-Lai.

It would be cool if this was a Warlock hangout place exclusive to them where they can do Warlock things and train pets or something. Make more use out of it than just getting Green Fire. I hope this is a hindsight to come for other classes.

I think this is a large part of it. Rogues got legendaries to help bolster their numbers, now we're getting the fire people were asking for.

Depending on how much the class population influenced that decision hunters may never see class content again XD

As I said, I am not complaining by any means.

That made me laugh. Warlocks for mop got ridiculously overhauled where their far superior casters-- and will continue to get good fixes (aslong as a certain GC plays them). Each spec is entirely different from one another and provide such unique play styles and experiences to them that makes the game vastly more entertaining than any other dps class. Its a wonderful job done by the class designers for warlocks. Wish others get the same in the future.

^ The rogue population was bolstered as much as it was because everyone and their mom made rogue alts and came out of the woodwork to get the legendary for either pvp, to just get a legendary, or get the account FoS etc. That # is not plain people playing rogues as mains. This will only hopefully cause an influx of people making warlock alts to get to see the content. Green fire won't make people roll locks as mains, our extreme high damage, playstyle, and talent system will.

This post does make sense to the fact that if it were a 'class' legendary such as the rogue legendary quest chain or whatever etc. It would be appropriate and well put to have a "special" event or quest to accompany the end reward-- Now the reward being just green fire seems rather a Big Build up for such mediocre result. (Not complaining I like having special !@#$, fine by me. Makes the game interesting just awkward a big thing for just 'green fire' that you could of model changed yourself years ago) Especially when like the OP stated everyone gets these implements in glyph form currently, its no big deal for them but it is for us. (Shadow ravens, spirit of redemption as a valk, etc)

I would hope this is a precursor to every class having their own "quest story experience" like previous days in vanilla.

Because Blizzard owes us.

I was under the impression GC plays a mage, and the developer responsible for the warlock revamp in MoP, Xelnath, was fired a while ago.

I too was under this erroneous assumption that was based entirely on nothing just like any other post that says GC favors whatever class he may or may not be playing at some nondescript point in time.
