Are Warlocks Succubus being removed?

Blizzard is doing a bunch of things to take sexual references out of game. I saw posts showing you changed a painting and some names are being changed etc etc. I am curious about a warlocks Succubus demon. The definition of a succubus seems to be pretty sexual. It is literally . succubus

[ˈsəkyəbəs]

NOUN

  1. a female demon believed to have sexual intercourse with sleeping men.

If you’re going to quote the dictionary or wiki, add the entire definition of them.

There has been a thread up for a long time discussing this issue, and it has not been removed and allowed to expand. I’d reckon Blizzard is at least aware of the issue, but it will remain to be seen if they’ll do anything.

100% they’re going to get a major revamp or completely taken out.

I have two warlocks so its sad news. In a perfect world I think warlocks should be able to tame their own demons sort of like hunters can tame their own pets. Demonology warlocks get to tame stronger demons, sort of like beast master hunters can tame stronger pets. I think that would be awesome to just see a demon in the open world and be able to tame it and keep it

They don’t really do THAT, in this game.

No but they should add an Incubus model like they promised us ten years ago :triumph::triumph::triumph:

At most I do think the succubus can use an outfit change since her current outfit is based on 90s Madonna with the Cone Bra

Support warlock Grimoire stables!

Well, if they really want to remove everything sexual from the game. They need to close down the game. Even if they do remove the succubus, players will still have a chance to be sexual with each other in whispers.

It’s best to just close down the game, that way no one can be tempted by anything sexual. :roll_eyes:

Races in wow don’t reproduce sexually. All babies are delivered via Storks.

I hate when video games get too soft. They remove all the adult humor and replace it family friendly Disney’esque content. It’s an insult to human intelligence. Even kids can handle that stuff in small doses. Often times these changes extend to the storytelling and general ambiance, making a game completely stale.

They will save it for the next time they need to distract from a public fiasco.

Yeah but it looks like she will be working on office relations more than game development.

The more people that compare war in the game and sexist/racist content in the game, the more I realize the sexist/racist content definitely need to be removed because folks clearly don’t understand the issue on any level.

And yes that includes the Succubus. I originally thought adding an Incubus would make it all right but, in light of all the posts making it clear folks don’t understand why these things are problematic, regardless of the setting, I say removal is the best option.
