So why aren't they fixing warlock? Those are only QoL changes and not buffs. This class really lacks some self healing (it's all crit reliant and not so great), cc and utility. On top of that it really could use improved defense abilities in pvp. I hate this class being reduced to ''the group buffer''. It was built as a glass canon with insane damage, weak defense and a lot of healing to compensate. They removed the healing and reduced the damage, so what is left?

A stationary class with okay damage, that must't take hits and is reliant on party healing, that is only taken because of sb. Wl don't bring anything but sb as utility...

 

If I hadn't fallen in love with this class, I think I'd have already rerolled FM or SF...

I'm going to address this because this entire post is stupid beyond belief as a Warlock main.

 

"This class really lacks some self healing (it's all crit reliant and not so great), cc and utility."

Really? Their self-heal is godlike, why is your crit so bad if you aren't seeing the benefits of it. 

CC? Not our job, don't have to worry about it, and even then next patch Q acts as a double stun in the same way FM's 3 double-stuns.

Utility? Not our problem, Buff and go.

 

"  It was built as a glass canon with insane damage, weak defense and a lot of healing to compensate. They removed the healing and reduced the damage, so what is left? "

Glass cannon with insane damage? Nope. Never was, but it still has good damage however.

Weak defense? Learn to block and iframe better.

Healing? It still has insane healing, hello? o.o

 

" A stationary class with okay damage, that must't take hits and is reliant on party healing, that is only taken because of sb. Wl don't bring anything but sb as utility... "

Lol stationary? Are you even playing the class properly? Shadow Build? Shadow RB? Hello? Tonnes of mobility there o.o

Are we playing the same class? I can take tonnes of hits just fine and my healing is retardedly high.

WL Don't bring anything but SB? That's the entire point?

 

Are we playing the same class? Because it certainly doesn't seem like we are at all. o.o

Aah, yes, have you played sum or FM before?

 

Tons of self healing ON PURPOSE and therefore way better compared to wl. As long as you're not firing your wingstorm into a group of mobs it's not gonna heal you a lot.

Let's say it crits for 7k. that's 3.5k healing for you if you use helix, 1.75k if you use dc. So on average you will get half of your wingstormticks to crit (with ~50%+ crit) that means when playing helix you'll get ~5.25k health per wingstorm, with call you get ~2.6k. And now think about it, you cannot control it. So when you need healing, maybe you don't crit, maybe you crit a lot. I hate RNG heals.

And that's useless in pvp because your crit chance is 30%. 

Now compare that to a sum or fm. FM can heal for 15% flat with veil +1% per resist + 10/30% ice. Sum has a constant stream of healing via the dot, petal storm can also heal.

 

Wl defense IS weak. I am not talking about PvE here because Iframing boss attacks isn't really what I would call defense. It's easy and predictable. I was specifically referring to PvP here sorry for not telling you.

 

Stationary? well you have to cast wingstorm sometimes and imprision, block is stationary and we don't have dashes only double s to really cover some distance.

And I bet you forgot there are still people playing with call these days since not everyone got the asura ember and playing bombardement helix is quite dull.

 

Every class has double cc. Well you realize our pet got like 114% acc so it's gonna miss a lot.

 

But why did I even waste my time trying to explain that to you? People like you can't argue properly and are instantly there to insult people if they don't share their opinion...

You are not wrong in saying that you might be playing a different class, because a warlock relies very heavily on gear and HM skills. I like my warlock and don't complain about the class, but I feel the class asks for a high cost to develop. It might not be the worst class in that respect, but it certainly asks for the very best, and if you don't provide, it is still very nice, but not spectacular. I would not have minded mob resets fixes and some changes to C as it is really not particularly great as a major dcd. 

 

I like the the change to q, because I have tried and failed numerous times to press Q/x simultaneously for a stun, and it does not queue them in a proper order. I guess there is no action queue or something.

 

i think it's fair because the 2x stun tied to having thrall up, and being able to get it to jump.

"Aah, yes, have you played sum or FM before?"

Yes I have, easier =/= better, Critting off a wingstorm heals me at least 9% of my HP, 27% over 3 waves, now how many times am I resetting Wingstorm with 3, F and SS? multiple times.

 

"Wl defense IS weak. I am not talking about PvE here because Iframing boss attacks isn't really what I would call defense. It's easy and predictable. I was specifically referring to PvP here sorry for not telling you."

PvP, I concede, you're right in that it's weaker in PvP in terms of healing and defenses, then again I'm a pleb WL that got plat last season and decided to stop PvPing after much frustrations.

 

"Stationary? well you have to cast wingstorm sometimes and imprision, block is stationary and we don't have dashes only double s to really cover some distance."

Wingstorm is literally less than a second and instant in other cases, 3..that's being worked on and making it 3 hit instead of 5 hit next patch. Block being stationary is fine, you can just block and move on, I do it a lot.

 

"And I bet you forgot there are still people playing with call these days since not everyone got the asura ember and playing bombardement helix is quite dull."
TBH, you're right, I did forget about that, mainly because I personally fall asleep using call.

 

"Every class has double cc. Well you realize our pet got like 114% acc so it's gonna miss a lot."

Ninja fixed next patch iirc.

 

"But why did I even waste my time trying to explain that to you? People like you can't argue properly and are instantly there to insult people if they don't share their opinion..."

You're right, I'm sorry, I got too emotional too quickly and forgot that some people play differently. Regardless I still believe you're wrong in some points. (Specifically the healing, damage and stationary points.)

Here is what I consider as achievements as a Warlock (based what people believe about this class): I tanked Yeti, Asura, Nexus, Mast all 4man with bloody DRAGONCALL (2.5s casting) build with less than 1600 defense and stealing agro from 2 summoner with 40AP+ and FM with 20AP+ with dark build.

 

Here is my complaints for the complainers:

Don't talk about WL mobility in PvE if you don't know boss pattern, how to kite, and most importantly when to snare or cc. I can spend all day with 2.5s casting without getting hit (except for Naksun because he's too cute for dragons to eat him alive but soon). The only time you can throw mobility at my face is with PvP cuz people tends to have Thrall-phobia and spin very far to a corner and I have to chase them.

Don't talk about cc if ur too greedy with dmg and don't want to change your build for cc. I once had to double cc Yeti for all 3 pulls, had BM, BD, and Summoner and a single WL had to do all the double cc in a 600AP+ party. Yeah, you meet all kind of people in F8 including ones that got no idea how to double cc in endgame dungeons.

You guys seriously need to elaborate on your ideas before you let them out of your heads...you have to think of both PVE and PVP yeah sure you might want Warlock to have more CC and more healing so you can PVE but you need to think about it in PVP too. WL already have an insane amount of burst DPS and a ton of defensive skills that in pvp allows them to remain untouched unless you really know how to counter them...and on top of that you want to give the class more CCs and healing? Come on man...

First things first:

'' You're right, I'm sorry, I got too emotional too quickly and forgot that some people play differently '' Thumbs up for that statement!

I have to admit that I do tend to exaggerate in my posts when pointing out what I think is an issue with a class (after all I spend my time playing it). I think we might want to restart :D

 

Critting off a wingstorm heals me at least 9% of my HP, 27% over 3 waves 

My problem with that is that crit = not really reliable and part of the rotation = not on purpose. I would like more small portions of healing rather than big ones that sometimes don't show up when you need them, even if it is on a key skill for dealing damage.

 

Wingstorm is literally less than a second and instant in other cases  (exactly 1 second) It sums up. It really feels awkward to have cast. 

 

3..that's being worked on and making it 3 hit instead of 5 hit next patch looking forward to that

 

mainly because I personally fall asleep using call.  I'd prefer full dark build, too, but I am still not comfortable enough with it using it in dungeons, so I'll have to stick with call until I have learned it.

Ninja fixed next patch iirc.  I hope so but I doubt it. Sum cat has low acc too and they need it for double cc...

 

Just all around I think our toolkit could use some tweaks, literally every class will get their candy soon.

Guys... you realize ure discussing about a FAR RANGE CLASS, every far range class is 10 times easier to play than a close range class, no matter if stationary or not, if you die as a far range, you are doing something horribly wrong. They released the pet system for a reason, if you think you're too squishy, then simply get a pet. And about warlock, check ur august KR patch and stop crying cos you'll have the most overpowered class ingame, 1.5min SB cooldown, ur awaken skill will be changed to RMB, literally everything will be boosted. So before you complain about a class that will be OP af, rather INFORM YOURSELF FIRST!

First: I really really get angry at people claiming ranged classes have it way easier. Although I main a Wl, I occasionally DO tank with my Bm and it is BY NO MEANS hard to dodge the melee attacks most bosses do

(there are a few exceptions, but keep in mind there are also mechanics ranged classes have to deal with that melees don't even notice , eg. be ido automatons or the entangling seeds of the umbral lord). The only place where ranged classes have it 100000 times easier is Ssp and you don't even need Ssp to get moonstones now.

 

Melees were given dashes and defensive cds to cope with being in melee range. While it certainly takes a little effort to push those buttons and maintain your damage, it still is very humane and in no way a totally different level of difficulty than being ranged. I do admit that melees require better awareness I will not agree with ranged being kindergarden in comparison.

 

Second: My main complaint wasn't about dmg.

BM.... you are talking about a class that can literally spamblock, the point is, while far range is allowed to freely dps, a close range has to use Q/E/SS every close range aoe which makes us lose time, if you fail dodging, u either get knocked back or CC'ed. Also its not about "what you need", go read asian forums and EVERYONE will say that far range classes were made to play the game easier. Try playing bladedancer endgame, you are not allowed to spin because you'll interrupt ur draw stance, so Q/E/SS every single aoe otherwise ull lose quite a bunch of DPS, while FMs just sit there and scratch their balls while spamming an easy rotation.

The point is, and I hope that by now you've realized that it is not about ranged vs melee but the individual classes themselves. Look at it, sum and FM are easy to play, I admit, but Wl? Doesn't really fit into the same category in a similar way Bm and Kfm have it easier because of spammable counter/block than other melee classes avoiding aoes.

 

Dealing or not having to deal with certain boss mechanics isn't really what makes a class easy or hard, it is the tools a class has available to do its job. There are classes like summoner that can ignore everything and go full sunflowespammode and there are other classes that have to really work for their candy.

@LockEasymeef

 

Actually, ranged is easier than melee in this game. In terms of warlock you just spam your block skill. They are just as glass cannon as any other ranged. Their healing is insane and you can easily get ~%50% crit in this game. WL has the ability to outdamage FM if they are both well geared. WL can spec for CC. And yes, they're an offensive buffer. What is the issue with that?

 

If you don't like WL so much, then just reroll?
