Nature of Warlock's spells. Any differences between warlock's spells and demon's
Does the Warlock "class" have a seat of power(so to speak) where warlocks can come and go as they please, or something similar? would be cool if we had something like the Mages in Dalaran.
Im not big on lore, but i have been playing since Vanilla, and have not seen any obvious place where Warlocks would gather to practice their art in peace or discover more of their own power through mentoring etc. What i mean is something similar to the Starting Area of DK's, but for warlocks, have not seen that anywhere or anything similar.
Why can't I drain mana anymore?

Just watch, before the end of this expac, we will at the very least hear some unsettling news about the legion.
Personally, I would LOVE a secret society of warlocks, patiently waiting and building their power, inviting only the greatest warlocks of any given time (that mean the player, after a long series of quest).
They would have strict rules and motivations. And a secret lair that can only be found at the end of the quest.
Oh, and their leader would be called Zgukkraps (/fanboy)
That's why I asked earlier why we just don't see that in the game. Warlocks are an open and important resource to both factions' militarys, so there just isn't a need for them to remain hidden or underground.
Can the Sha be a part of the warlock lore? I am perfectly curious about it.
No. That was going to be part of the Warlock story arc in Pandaria. This part of the quest was not done and never will be, but one of the final Black Council trials was going to be to attempt to assimilate and master the Sha. It was going to fail horribly, with Zelfrax becoming even more twisted than he already was.
The nature of Warlock power is that it comes from chaos and instability - Sha is dark, cold and reflective. Warlocks control their magical power by paying a price - either through their blood (life tap), the suffering of others (affliction), their own internal rage (demonology) or by absolutely obliterating everything their magic touches (destruction).
Sha power cannot be converted, bargained with or bribed. It is a kind of one-sided loathing that wholly devours those who lack the inner counterbalance to handle it. Warlocks cannot wield it, as there's no way for them to 'cheat' the price away.
[FYI This statement may no longer be considered canon]
bet on orc warlock enemy mobs wearing t14 and shooting sha bolts in the siege of orgrimmar.
Warlorcs of Draenorc made me quit. You can't have my stuff.
I guess that's why our T14 is Sha-themed.
That's a shame, it would have been great if the Sha were involved, even if things didn't work out for us. Something about teaching us limits to our power.
Btw Xelnath since you're here can I ask if Zelfrax is in any way related to that demon/gargoyle thing with the same name in Dustwallow Marsh (http://www.wowhead.com/npc=23864), or is it just a coincidence?
