Warlocks, the other pet class. Remember?

Imo, especially since DH took their Metamorphosis back, Demonology should be out in the field making pacts with demons and creating something similar to a stable. That spec was pretty much perfect in MoP, and in typical fashion, Blizz ruined it completely.

Rather than taming, I think it’d be a cool system if the warlocks had to complete a task, make an offering, or complete a quest/scenario to get the demon to join them.

That sounds amazing. You’ve convinced me. We need more glyphs for our demons.

I mean, Demonology class fantasy was “Consuming Fel Energy To Become A Demon Temporarily” + “Master Demon Summoner”.

We had half of it removed and the other half not fleshed out yet.

Why settle for glyphs when the lore exists to allow for a game mechanic implementation that would be WAY more fun and allow each warlock to be unique and have fun enslaving things from old content.

Fiiiine. Ugh.

No glyphs.

Just a robust expandable, well defined, hunter like system of enslaving demons to do my bidding.

Whatever.

I don’t know. I think Legion did a pretty good job of making Demo really feel like a demon summoner. They did a bad job of making it fun to play, but they definitely had the theme down.

All we summoned were imps and puppies as far as main rotation goes.

Demonic Portal hasn’t been a functional/strong talent in any iteration so its never used, but even in that case we apparently have a whole variety of demons enslaved. If Talented, we also have Vilefiend demons and another Felguard at our disposal. But again, these are all talents.

The “core” gameplay of Demonology (MASTER SUMMONER OF DEMONS!!!) is being an imp mother with two dogs and a boyfriend (demonic tyrant every minute and a half).

I revamped the first post of my thread if anyone wants to check it out and go bump, I added justification/arguments:

Yeah this really is lame. We recently invaded and tore up the capital home base of the Burning Legion. In that time, warlocks would have inevitably learned new things during their foray into Antorus. Subjugating a pit lord or even an eredar at this point shouldn’t be difficult. A golden opportunity was missed here and it sucks. I don’t play my lock anymore because I don’t like being the red headed stepchild.

We already enslave summon multiple Eredar: the Wrathguard, Demonic Tyrant, and Prince Malchezaar via Demonic Portal Talent.

I mean, we pretty much did when we opened our class hall.

Warlocks are not a pet class.

Never played a warlock then? Thats fine, you should try one.

I agree fully man, been like this since this game started, not like a Warlock can’t go about like a hunter and bind demons to his will, we even have Sargeras who bound entire demonic races to do his bidding. would love to see some improvements and variety with all the class that can pull out a beast/elemental or blueberry.

I wonder how you or people played locks for years without having extra pets, you know this is not sims city or some animal crossing. If you want pets and barbies just go and play mario.

Maybe just realize what HUNTER means and what warlock means,if it is too hard for you google it maybe? or read entire book about HUNTERS and try to understand how they can tame so many animals.

Reading this and similar threads, it sounds like a lot of Warlocks actually wanted to be Hunters. If pet variety was a big concern, well… You chose poorly.

I guess that you read wrong so :grimacing:

Don’t get me wrong, i love pet classes and play basically all of them, only asking for a little love for the other ones too. Some undeads for DK would be really cool.
Oh, and it isn’t about new skills or mechanics but only visuals

And you’d guess wrong.

What you’re asking for is homogenization. You’ve created a false equivalence between Hunters and Warlocks because they share a mechanic. I share a bunch of mechanics with DKs; I can’t pull people to me, summon a ghoul or raise an ally, but I’m a plate wearing melee, c’mon Blizzard, give me a little love too.

warlols ?? Yeah I remember them kinda

Hey!!! didn’t they have metamorphis before hmmm…oh wait that’s Demon hunters

Same way we played warlock for years without Green Fire.

And we asked for Green Fire.

And we got Green Fire.

And now we play with Green Fire.

Don’t be bitter, be better!

Nope we just think Demon pet diversity exists and there’s lore canon justification to allow for its mechanical implementation

Nope it isn’t! Warlock pets fit a different role than hunter pets, work differently too. Customization isn’t homogeneization.
