Personaly i no longer love warlocks.

I dont think they are fun anymore and here are my reasons

Why i wont play Warlock in Legion:
 
- clumsy gameplay mechanics : which will not be changed until next major updates, if we're lucky
- visual not being updated: aka Green Fire visuals
- lazy talents : taking baseline spells to go in our talents, while other classes got new ones
- unnecessary pruning : bye bye water walking warlock mount, bye bye Dark Soul
- ramp up time : in demonology for example, you have at least 14 seconds before STARTING doing your average damage
- aoe : Destruction was aoe king in Mop, now we have to gimp our solo damage to do aoe when others classes don't have to (hello to you fire mages)
- RNG ressource gathering : a secondary ressource, necessary to our dps rotation tied to RNG (except for Demono)
- RNG mastery : Chaos Bolt, Destruction's big hit spell, now hit like a wet noodle if you're not lucky
- ZERO communication from Blizzard : many of these problems have been said since Alpha and there have been zero response or explanation from Blizzard, hence people getting the feeling their feedback goes in the trash can.

 

So what do you guys think about warlocks in legion?

I'm liking lock a lot so far. I played lock way back, but never mained one before (always been a mage). But this expansion, I've decided to switch over to my lock because I'm having tons of fun. I don't really have much to compare to, though, because I quit near the start of WoD and haven't played a lock in ~4 years. So it's kinda like an entire new class to me. My only complaint is that ramp up time. I'm totally useless in fights under 30 seconds and nearly useless in AoE situations (been playing affli/demo so far). 

What I do enjoy is the feel of the class. I think demo/affli have a distinct style and I feel like I'm playing a warlock and not just a mage with shadow damage. Demo does feel a bit clunky and affli may benefit by changing up DoT/Life Drain 24/7. At the end of the day, I guess you gotta ask if you're having fun, as you stated at the beginning of the post, and I would have to say I do have fun almost solely for the reason that the play style FEELS like a warlock to me. Commanding hordes of demons to do my bidding feels very warlocky, as does throwing DoTs on everything and waiting for their health to drain away. 

Plus the artifact weapons look absolutely amazing. A skull that follows me around and talks to me? Yes, please.

Destro feels like I have half a kit, and the rest of the kit is in other talents I can't select. I think if I had 2 talent choices per row, Destro would feel great, but right now it seems like you're missing key abilities no matter what selections you make.

Not having access to basic tools like interrupts, stuns, or move speed increases without talent selections that trade off other key tools just makes it feel like you're not a full character.

Hello guys,

I`ve came back to the game after a mostly casual time in WoD only to find out pretty much what FoxMccloud said above is true ... 

  • again and again Demonology got revamped and again feels off ... to me at least ...
  • destro used to be nice to play, fun, powerfull both single target and aoe now its close to crap, kinda the last from them 3 specs from what i see.
  • affliction ... my old warlock love feels useless because most of the things are not single target and having to gimp your spec to serve both st and aoe is quite silly ... asking frinds to wait so I can respec before bosses so I can perform in single target too not just on the trash up to a boss... FeelsBadMan ...

All is all I hope it improves ...

Cheers o/

I've had a warlock as my favorite since I started Wow right after the launch of BC. In BC I raided and was always top dps and warlock was also a strong solo-class. But since then I have hated everything that was done to the class.  I lvld up,  but raided/did everything else on my hunter.

But now I love warlock again!  Everything legion have offered so far is fun and the class is great to level and do dungeons with. At the moment I play as affliction because its so fast to quest with.   It seems to me as it is more possiblities to costomize the character now than  it has been in ages.  

Artifacts are the coolest in game! I love it.

      A few days ago I posted a cheap priest deck. I have no idea how many actually have been interested in it but maybe we had some none registered visitors who knows. So here another deck. Again inspired by Chump but I had a similar deck before. Compared to Chumps' version I replaced 2x Twilight Summoner with 2x Spawn of N'Zoth (beause Epics are not budget :D) and I didn't want to craft Forbidden Ritual myself so I've put in 2 commons instread, Mortal Coil and Zealous Initiate.
      It's technically a Zoo but it plays differently which is a nice change to the "we know it all" stuff :)
      Total Arcane Dust Cost: 1500
      2x Flame Imp 1x Mortal Coil 2x Possessed Villager 2x Sanguine Reveler 2x Voidwalker 1x Zealous Initiate 2x Dire Wolf Alpha 2x Volatile Elemental 2x Darkshire Councilman 2x Devilsaur Egg 2x Spawn of N'Zoth 2x Unwilling Sacrifice 1x Void Terror 2x Ravenous Pterrordax 1x Cobalt Scalebane 2x Despicable Dreadlord 2x Bonemare Deck Code: AAECAf0GBMQIxQmNrQLKywINMNkHwgi0rAL2rgKNrwLnwQKrwgK0xAKXywL3zQKmzgKJ4gIA

      Hello,
      The Sworn is recruiting DPS.  We are a Horde guild on Arthas and our current progression is 4/9 Mythic TOS.  We only raid two nights a week, Tuesday and Wednesday from 9:05 PM until 12:05 AM Eastern.  Currently, our main goal is to push Mythis TOS progression versus clearing farmed content, please keep this in mind if you wish to join us.
      From you, we would expect 100% attendance during your trial period; after that if you cannot make a raid or will be late it is mandatory to keep the raid leader updated.  In order to continue making good progression while raiding only two nights a week, we expect that you know your class inside-out and will research any bosses you are unfamiliar with prior to raids.
       If you are interested, you can either reply to this thread and link your most recent combat logs for review or hit me up on battlenet, Violentnacho, recruiting officer (violentravi#1826.
      Thank you for your consideration
      Xoxo

      Hey guys,
      I'm new to playing affliction lock and ranged DPS in general really. Can someone help me see why my DPS isn't where it should be? I've changed my stats around and have been playing with my legendaries and rotation but I can't seem to improve. If someone has some ideas it would be much appreciated.

      All applications will be reviewed and considered however if you are playing a class/spec combination we need then your chances of joining will be higher.
      A little bit of info about us:
      We are a group of friends and serious raiders on EU Twisting Nether looking to recruit skilled like-minded players into our roster for Mythic Legion raids and onwards. We will offer a sociable and fun raiding environment while maintaining a strong desire for progression. Our Discord is very active and we encourage all members to chat and play together not only for raids.

      We currently raid 3 days per week on Mythic: Wednesday, Sunday and Tuesday 19:15-22:15 server time. While it is not a lot we try to make the most out of our time. We run optional heroic/normal/alt/previous tier raids during off days in which raiders are welcome to come to. Our members also play other games outside raid times together where anyone is welcome to join(LoL, PUBG, HotS, Overwatch etc.).
      Our loot system for Mythic is RC Loot Council.
      What we expect from you:
      - We are a raiding guild with only a 9 hour per week schedule so you are expected to attend and be ON TIME! However we understand things can come up sometimes but please let us know.
      - Be able to speak and understand the English language and not be afraid to communicate with other members during raids.
      - Actively doing dungeons/world quests to improve your gear and artifact weapon.
      - Have a strong understanding of the current raid tier and be able to play your class to it's potential.
      - Always come to raids prepared(i.e. bringing food and potions, etc).
      - Come fully gemmed and enchanted with the correct stats for your class and spec.
      - Access to Discord and a working microphone.
      - Have a computer that can handle 20 man raiding and a good, stable internet connection.
      - Exorsus Raid Tools, Weakauras2 and RC Loot Council addons installed. We may ask you to install others.
