Alt Week: Warlock

I never really liked warlocks. I tried making one not too long after I started playing. I figured it would be easy, since I had already leveled a hunter, so another pet class should be no big deal. But … I dunno. I just never quite got it. She made it to about 23 but stalled there and was eventually deleted. Now .. this was back in BC, and a lot has changed since then. You had the big talent trees and had to figure out where to put those points. You had all of the spells and had to figure out which ones were supposed to be used with which spec. Yes, sure I was only 20-something, but even at that small level I was overwhelmed.

Then in Wrath I picked up maging. Well obviously since I was now a mage I had to hate warlocks, right? So I never got around to trying another one. Mage was easier to make sense of. If you’re fire, use fire spells. If you’re frost, use frost spells. If you’re arcane … well you get the picture.

Cata changed everything around, of course. With the talent revamp, I figured it was time to try again. I made a male worgen. He still exists, and I level him occasionally, but I had a hard time getting used to his casting animations so he joined my group of set-aside alts.

Then in Mists we got the green fire questline. Naturally, I took this as a sign to try once more. I had several revamped zones in the Eastern Kingdoms that I hadn’t seen yet, so I also used it as an opportunity to level through them. I made a female undead on Averry’s server, partly to avoid leveling on my home PvP server and partly to (finally) have a max level character to play with him there. This time, it stuck.

Madorsa made it all the way to max level.

She’s run around the Isle of Thunder with Averry’s lock, killing rares for the Tome of the Lost Legion. We both eventually found a copy on the AH for a price that we felt was reasonable, so that chapter is over. She’s run LFRs with him also. I think she still has to complete the final wing of ToT, but she’s eligible to go to SoO now as well. She’s spent a lot of time on the Timeless Isle. The survivability of the lock compared to ret pally is just … yeah. She killed stuff that Van would run away from. Even in lesser gear.

She started on her green fire quest. It’s been very interesting so far and there is so much lore. I’ve taken a ton of screenshots. Unfortunately, the scenario part is long and I had to log out shortly after this screenshot was taken, but this particular exchange amused me.

So … I’ve gone from basically disliking warlocks immensely, to having one as my second main. She’s the only character besides Van (and Kerick but he’s the same class/spec as Van so that doesn’t count) to have completed any raiding this expansion. Ok, fine, Kirgra hit up a single wing of MSV because some Prinnie wanted company, but otherwise .. that’s it. I’m getting that end of xpac itch to drag alts through content though, so maybe soon I will have others completing LFR too.

    Did you stick with Destro or are you Demo?

  2. repgrind Says:

    I mostly stay destro, but there are situations where I find demo to be more useful.

    Like, you know the treasure chest with the rope-walking? I went demo so I could glyph demonic leap and not die when I fell off the rope. xd

    The warlock changes were really awesome. They are so much fun to play. Good luck getting your green fire. It just doesn’t get old to run around with green glowing fingertips :)

    Oh that’s funny, I did the same exact thing. By the time I managed to drain stuff dead to get those soul shard things I was tired of playing her. She’s still sitting on Bronzebeard at level 21 poor girl.

    I should try destro but I just can’t give up my purple demon, lol. Good luck with the green fire Madorsa!

    Warlocks really are fun to play now, and their survivability compared to ret pallies -is- crazy. Good luck with your green fire. I really may just have to try it when I get mine to 90.
    It’s awesome that you kind of by accident discovered a class that you’ve enjoyed that much. :)
