SaintPepsiCola Posted June 9, 2016 Share Posted June 9, 2016 Ok, so I have around 500 AP with warlock and 51% crit. I have played both builds and also got their HM book. I love the class's style and animations. I love that we are less popular. I like things like that. We have a lot of utility and people don't realize it. A summoner would know exactly how a FM can help save him but I have seen very few veterans who know how warlock brings utility outside his timelapse and soulburn. It's kinda obvious we are so underplayed and undervalued. I have been exclusively playing Dragoncall the last few days because at this point I can just spam them dragons and I love the animations. On the road to 50 I exclusively used Dragonhelix which is great for open world BUT we have such a hard time doing stuff. Everything has a cast time and if something as little as wind struck us during our casts we get long cd for no damn reason. Yes, we have CD reset mechanisms but they require standing still too; hello skill 3 or leeching to only get CC'ed from an off screen mob before you complete your siphon animation -_-. Farming the boghide area for a breeze weapon was a nightmare for me on my WL. The mobs would CC me to hell, cancel my animations and generally wreck me. It was much easier on FM and assassin. I used to use Soulburn but these days I play in group dungeons with my WL friend and he uses soulburn so I use the more selfish timelapse and spam a million dragons when Im siphoned. (They become instacast during siphoned and timelapse = no cds). I also pull aggro when I do this yes I know this means that the FMs must be bad but its hard.... its hard tanking the last twin boss of naryu labyrinth for me AND do my dragoncalls at the same time. We are so glassy and not much dps at all. If I miss my leech because some little mob just CC'ed me im done for some time. Everything requires a setup. Why do we have to be an offensive support class; can we not just be an offensive class for people who think the fire/ice mage thing is too boringly cliche? Can we have more of a constant dps or get more burst if we are gonna get CDs. We are so fragile and complex to play with less dps than summoner and fm who are so easy compared to us that its beyond me. Also, the thrall seems more of a chore in the dps routine than anything. It doesn't do much outside its 2 min cds and the aura buff it gives is so short lived it might as well nt exist. He is more useful for PVP in low tier matches. I'm still going to main WL because I love the class and I hope for some buffs to not just our pvp but pve too. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
