Myths and Facts about Warlocks

The 2.0.1 patch has a number of people crying like 8 year old girls with skinned knees. Most of them are bitching about how overpowered warlocks have become, so it’s time to do a little Myth/Facts when it comes to Warlocks, courtesy of this thread on Myths about Warlocks. It’s important to get your facts right if you’re going to whine and cry like the little girls most of you men are.

A sample or two:

Sproc: MYTH: All 10 warlocks on your server get together and Hold hands walking side by side down zones killing everything in their path like the great wall of deathcoil.

FACT: This statement is only 1/2 true, as Warlocks ride single file to hide their numbers

Nightwoolf: MYTH: A Warlock can only have one pet out at a time.

FACT: A warlock can actually have all 4 pets out at the same time alloing them to take control of any situation that may be presented before them.

Each one also does not need to be directly controlled by the warlock. For example if the Felhunter sees a Mage, it automatically soloes it. If a Succubus sees a Warrior it automatically seduces it with an enchanting lullaby. There are also some rumours that one Warlock on Firetree had a mysterious 5th pet however nobody has ever been able to confirm these rumours as of yet.

Curse of Agony, Corruption, Siphon Life, Unstable Affliction, Immolate, Fear, Light Stretching, Cup of Tea, Collect Gold.

    at some point, everyone has called for some class to get nerfed.

    whatever! i’ma play my hunter and deflect your scorn whilst my pet rips out your throat (after i’ve concussed the f*#$ out of you.) i look forward to the possibility of not just shredding a ‘lock in pvp – oh no i di-unt! oh no i did-uhhhn’t!

    The link is a little self referential, no?
