LF: Experienced PVP Warlock Advice.

Recommended Posts

*Affliction Lock - Orc, ilevel 885, 38 artifact traits*

1600-1700 2's rating: with a Resto Shaman

1800+ 3's rating: with a Resto Shaman/DH

Pets: Fel Hunter (Permanent) then: Inferno stun / Fel hunter


My question is how do you play with your lock in 2's vs 3's strategy?


(1). Do you just outlast and wait for dampening? spread pressure, UA+Drain when you can, and try and outlast with:


Talents: Writhe / Absolute / Howl / Siphon / Demon / Service / Phantom ?


Honor Talents: Relentless / Mind Quickness / Tongues or Weakness / Nether / Deaths Embrace / Amplify ?


(2). OR do you try to set up burst windows? with some what spread pressure    (its hard to get dots on both healer/dps) but CC chain the healer and burst with UA + Drain on the DPS for a kill window? with:


Talents: MG / Absolute / Howl / Siphone / Demon / Service / Phantom?


Honor Talents: Relentless / Mind Quickness / Tongues or Weakness / Nether / Deaths Embrace / Amplify ?


For 3's I do the (1) for the spread pressure since its hard for the healer to maintain, but for 2's I keep trying (1) and (2), I just cant seem to find the right way to climb in 2's


Any advice on talents/honor talents or play style for Affliction in 2's or 3's? or anything you try with your healers? I'm open for suggestions and talent changes


thank you.

      Did you know Star Augur Etraeus in the Nighthold had a sneak peek at the Shadowlands? Well he didn't, but the afterlife did come to his awesome observatory during a brief period of time.
      The Augur saw many things in his little observation room, including the potential fate of the Warcraft universe if the Void Lords go unchecked. But that wasn't the only thing we could see there, as OgreJoe got to see the In-Between flight zone of the Shadowlands invade the observatory during a buggy patch of the beta (but the video was only released today)!
      And just because they're awesome, here's the other amazing things we could/can see in the Augur's room:


      There's also this amalgamation of all three planets from the encounter by Skadiheim:

      And here's a video with some nice scenic views as well, but you should really just head on over to the Nighthold and try the fight out for yourselves:

      It took a while, but I finally caught up with Complexity-Limit and had a chat about their big Castle Nathria Race to World First win over at Raider.IO. We talked about the global release and how it could be implemented, the extremely exciting final day on Denathrius with Echo, the old-school kill-hiding ways returning, their thoughts on Shadowlands systems, their back-to-back win, obviously, and many many more topics!
      Here's a couple highlights, but be sure to check out the full interview over on Raider.IO.

      The boost sale communities have taken it up a notch, as basically taking over Trade Chat and Group Finder (despite the latter being against ToS) wasn't enough, and they're resorting to some very low-tech ways.
      Unfortunately this isn't one of the actually funny corpses spelling out a site name stories, but a really annoying one, as players have been receiving in-game spam mail!

      This has been going on for quite a while, but we thought we'd highlight it, especially since the above is an actual real-money operation and not one of the more frequent gold-based ones. Aside from the very concept being borderline insane (who in their right mind would go to an outside site based on getting in-game spam mail?), it's also pretty damn annoying. Apparently being constantly inundated by advertising spam in basically every channel on Azeroth and having to sift through dozens of ads in the group finder wasn't enough, and now we need to hire goblins and gnomes to create a physical spam filter on our mailboxes! Suffice it to say that even before this became a thing the ads were getting out of hand and most players are very much fed up with them, so this really is the cherry on top of a really bad sundae.
      Have you received one of these in the past?
