    Green Fire After All?

    We're cooking up some cool Warlock stuff we can hopefully announce soon. In a more general sense, we LOVE class-specific content, but to do it right takes development time (believe me, I have to somehow schedule all this stuff.).
    Hmmm...

    Sounds more like class-specific quests, stories, and factions with very unclear rewards, if any.

    I don't think green fire could be classified as "class-specific content". More like some glyph or "class-changes". Content would taste more like a faction, a zone or professions stuff. You know, actually content.

    I call trolls on Blizzard for that!

    Yes, I noticed this. I'm not sure what to think of this, feels kind of like a gut punch to warlocks...

    This probably alludes more to the whole warlock council and getting them in-game since they seem to be the ones behind all of us warlocks learning our new magics and spec flavors (i.e. new destro, affli and demo).
    Those who you know as Warlocks are your Salvation through Destruction. You exist because we allow it, and you will end because we demand it.

    Xelnath already told us on this very forum that the coding for green fire is done.

    Why is everyone obsessed with green?

    Warlocks are all about the purple, man. Give me a purple Headless Horseman's mount, Titansdammit!

Suddenly the world will seem a brighter place and your mood will improve immediately."

    But they already said they're going to do green fire, just not at launch...

    Blizzard already confirmed it awhile ago.

    They are making a quest line for it.

    Very very hard questline for it, similar to the Doomguard or Dreadsteed one, back in the day.

    They stated "We want it to feel epic to have achieved this quest"

    I never jumped on the whole green fire thing.

    Now blue or purple? GIMME.

    100% this
    Having Chaos Bolt match the rest of my spells would be great.
    Having all of my fire and CB be dark blue or purple... glorious.

    Green fire is coming, but it will be implemented with a quest, I think they also had purple fire but I'm not 100% on that.
    The Arcane only corrupts the weak..

    While I do want to see green fire (if not to distinguish me from a fire mage even more so)

    I would rather see a return of the epic class based quests like the old quests for Warlock pets and the epic level 60 mounts, or the paladin mount, or benediction/anathema for priests and Rok'delar for hunters, Quel'serrar for warriors and paladins.


    I remember hunting down men of pure hearts so I could corrupt their souls or whatever to summon the succubus, trading with a demon lord for artifacts to summon a fearsome steed for the fiery pits of hell!

    Where are these quests gone! I want them back damnit!

    i think lore wise green is the standard color of fel magic

    but i can understand that individual taste cannot be disputed, Purple/pink/maroon/mauve Fire sounds very pretty.

    But i will take green and be very happy.

    I feel like the epic quests for core abilities (doomguard, succubus) are dead and gone but I think that epic quests for vanity options (Class Mounts, spell color variations, Demon or Pet skin variations, unique Transmog gear) would be a perfectly appropriate form of flavor content that A) is not mandatory and B) really gives a sense of accomplishment and flavor to a class.

    This is probably what Xelnath was alluding to a while a go, and why he made a thread asking about what Lore questions we'd desperately want answered. I'm very, very interested in this, cause I think other classes will scream bloody murder when they find out what cool stuff we are getting.

    I hope this is a complete package of a special warlock faction with some lore around it to explain it (see: Legacy of the Masters) and some quests to give us coloured spells. Just something to really put Warlocks on the map and give them an ingame identity, especially Alliance side where we aren't much part of the lore. ( we did get a passing mention in the last book though, truth be told )

    Can't wait to see what they cooked up for us. It's probably one of the best periods to be a Warlock right now
