The Definitive Guide to Warlock Icons

16 posts in this topic

  • spell_shadow_burningspirit.jpgLife Tap - This icon is informally known in the business as "The Emperor's New Icon." You see, Blizzard's art department hired a very expensive consultant to illustrate Life Tap, as at the time it was to be a warlock's most iconic spell (pardon the pun). Sacrificing one's own essence for greater access to magical power--now that's warlockian! Well, what you see here is what the consultant came up with. Though he wasn't given any more work, management had a dilemma: how to justify what they spent to the higher-ups? Thus began a harrowing tale of rationalism, deceit, and shame. To cover this embarrassing incident, Blizzard has been gradually de-emphasizing the spell, requiring it to be cast less and less in each expansion. I wouldn't be surprised if it were removed from WoD entirely.

Thank you everyone for the kind support; if you chuckled, I did my job

And anyone who dresses up like a skill icon wins my vote in a theoretical icy veins costume contest

And that's an uncannily good representation of Dark Intent

Awesome post, great way to finish up the last bit of my Friday "work" day. haha

 

All I have to say, is at least we are not unfortunate enough to get an icon that looks like a sparkling penis.

Btw. That Agony icon looks to me like a razor that has been dulled. Have you ever tried shaving with a dull razor? Now that's agony ;-)

Xoroth is supposed to be a fiery world that our dreadsteeds and possibly dread lords as well. How we can summon other demons from there is beyond me.
