warlocks seem to be the class that can't quite find a niche in ranged dps. they keep trying to make them unique, but without making them a mage. mages are simple. pew pew. locks, well, they have a ton more abilities, and they keep changing. kinda sucks...
now, question for you locks. are you guys happy that blizzard is trying to make 3 raid viable specs (and technically 3 pvp viable specs...), or would you rather have it be more straightfoward? with mages, there are 3 raid viable specs, but they is very little change in the playstyle (raiding wise). main nuke, and use an ability when it procs. warlocks have vastly different playstyles depending on the spec you have. i'd like your opinions to be honest. it'd interest me.
i think part of the problem is they made locks almost identical to mages (in gearing, playstyle etc) in tbc, and made them scale beyond mages, and gave them more utility. do you still feel you have that utility? would you be willing to trade some damage output for great utility? also, is anyone running the demonic pact raid dps build?
There is more to life than pew pew you know, like staying out of the fire so you can live to pew pew another day
