Compared to spriest we're sitting pretty... that said that's a queen of the pigs situation.


?? Spriest is amazing in pvp? It doesn’t play the way anyone wants it to but it works.


Yeah I would kill to have anything close to current Shadow Priest defense. Their damage isn’t amazing since they very rarely use Voidform but with their CC, defense and spread damage they are pretty much what a DoT class wants to be in arenas right now.

Hard to say how they will be in 8.1 because they will be a bit more mortal but they will do more damage for sure.

Where in the actual F are the warlock changes at? Blizzard, be professional and answer the question.

they're at blizzcon or they're non-existent until 9.0.
we're not cool enough to get a spec redesign on the double like the other classes are. after all, we just got two in a row that were universally reviled, that means we have to just grin and bear it.

I just don't want to get nerfed at this point.

how did this even hit live in this state?
They clearly either didn't test or didn't care

My guess: timelines, by the time they realized they should have just kept legion and rolled our artifact traits baseline it was too late and they were committed to azerite. But honestly I think they released about six months to early, that said there wasn't six months of content left in legion so it was kinda up a creek without a paddle either way.


"Muh Deadlines"
This expression indicates an executive's confusion and lack of understanding. When confronted with a problem that is deep and systemic, executives mumble "muh deadlines" or "muh profit margins". This is usually followed by loot boxes, cash shops, and other casino-like ventures.

If warlocks actually got nerfed, then this class's entire player base would abscond with extreme haste. The only people who would remain would be those who are too unimaginably casual to even understand why people don't invite them.

Those people are in short supply these days.

Prepare for it, I'm highly expecting a reasonably large nerf in the next few months, particularly if we stay at the top of the raiding PvE boards.

I mean they just need to leave it the way it is and declare warlock a PVE class remove our queue options for PVP and refund me 50% of my charges every month on subscription since BFA launched.

They should give every one who purchased BFA 3 months free. We are seriously still beta testing their game. And everyone who leveled a warlock or Dk first should be refunded the game cost and given a free boost.

Woot !! 8.1 in 5 more weeks. Dec. 11th fellas . cant wait , #sacrasm.

(Sucy) #1552
Gotta love how there's no changes that address warlocks on the PTR whatsoever despite it coming out in !@#$ing 5 weeks.

Do you jackasses at blizzard even have a SINGLE warlock main on your team or do you all play flavor of the month?
And i don't mean "warlock main for 2 months", i mean a cat who only plays a warlock. Doesn't seem like it.

(Xoja) #1553
I'm okay with waiting for the patch. But I am not okay if Warlocks are finished on the PTR, absolutely not.

With all this time left there is no excuse not to make real improvements to class design. I honestly thought that the patch was going to come very soon after Blizzcon and I really think this time window could be a good thing. I just hope they have been listening to our feedback.

(Diora) #1554
I would think it takes more than 5 weeks to fix the worst pvp class. But if this is all we are getting it really should have been hot fixed instead of waiting to 8.1

(Sucy) #1555
I like how we all collectively gave up trying to get a response from them. Really gets the noggin joggin.

(Ojoverde) #1556
Still the lack of communication persist from part of the devs regarding to warlocks changes in the next patch, no sign of fixing the class yet.

You're really activating my almonds.

I don’t know what else to even say at this point.

Many of us have left feedback for 7-8 months about Affliction’s combat mechanics and PVP. Ignored.

And I’m not gonna lie, this is off topic but after seeing the Q&A responses to questions about class design at Blizzcon and the... well, I’ll just say Blizzcon as a whole I’m pretty bummed about the future of this game and not entirely sure I want Blizzard to be my horse anymore.

You guys have no what idea you’re doing. When the most well-received announcements and developments are of old remastered or resurrected games, it should show how your playerbase feels.

(Jessail) #1559
I think Ion's response to a question about a level squish said it all to me. Blizz is aware that the current system is broken and unsustainable but they can't figure out how to fix it as is. To me that's usually a sign it's time to call it done and start over with a clean slate.

(Diora) #1560
I can understand nostalgia . we all like it. Clearly we want the warlock class from another expansion. Overall the wow q&a panel was a joke. No real questions answered .And this urked me a little "It is entirely justified to blame Blizzard when a class gets the reputation for being bad, and they want to address these bad reputations. However, community perspective is often increased when players of a class constantly speak negatively of themselves". What does that even mean.?Warlocks are bad how else are we supposed to describe ourselves?
