OK so first off I have to admit I know nothing about 'locks...I've never rolled one, we have very few in the guild, and none on any of my raid teams...so if this has been posted about before, I apologize. I really didn't have a clue what to search for.
So I was in an LFD group on my level 20 holy paladin with a warlock and other random dps and tank. All of us were 'loomed out. During the fights the tank was mitigating damage well and no one else really needed much healing...except for the 'lock. His health kept ping-ponging all over the place, never really getting much below half, but still enough where I was constantly throwing heals his way. I started watching him and I couldn't tell what the heck was going on...he wasn't standing in bad, he hadn't peeled off the tank, and he didn't have some random add beating on him. When we finished, recount told me that I healed him more than I healed the tank!! Didn't really matter much cuz i definitely had mana to spare.
The pally is only my second healer I've rolled and I don't remember anything like this when I leveled this rdruid. And I don't recall ever seeing this happen to the multitude of 'locks I've runLFD/LFR with at level 90.
Anyone have a clue what was going on? Is it something inherent to low level warlocks?
A single life tap is (looks it up) only 15% of max health. The problem some warlocks get into is they'll wait until they're OOM then mash the button. While not really deadly unless they're taking damage from another source it's a bad habit to get into since
life tap + raid wide AoE = squished lock
Thanks! Yeah, had to be Lifetap.
Wow, interesting way to regen mana. My first reaction is to say 'locks get no more heals from me, but having seen some really good dps from warlocks when I'm tanking, I think I can make sure their mana bar stays fairly full. At my pally's level its no big deal at all, and my druid can fill them with an AoE HoT.
Hellfire, though...seems kinda pointless. If I inderstand it correctly, the adds have to be in melee range for it to do damage, and if that's the case the 'lock is already TAKING damage...why add more damage to it?
Maybe I should start a warlock...
Could be Burning Rush. http://www.wowhead.com/spell=111400
You'd be surprised how many really terrible people forget to cancel it.
EDIT: Misread level of group, can't be Burning Rush at that level. Just be aware of it later!
