I've never made a forum post whining about GC before, but his train of thought seems completely mindless.would you guys consider baking the stamina buff into Dark Intent? It sucks to have to pull a bad pet just to buff the raid.
Do you mean you use another pet or you just always Sac them all? Neither is an ideal design. (Source)
New Blood Fear is awful, no one in their right mind will take it. And seriously why nerf destro dps? It's already crap
BF competes with def talents and needs to be defensive. Sac competes with other demon talents and can't be the only choice. (Source)
Did you miss the fact that most warlocks don't use pets, and those that do don't use Imps?!
Warlocks are supposed to use pets and all pets are supposed to be viable. That's the problem, not Blood Pact.
how can he on one hand say 'you don't get a buff baked into DI because you already have stamina' then say 'all pets are supposed to be viable'. the other pets aren't like hunter pets, they provide no raidbuff. if you make them all equal the imp is clearly the only viable pet since it attacks at range with no downtime and gives the raid stamina. if they want to make all pets raid viable then the (perfectly polite and logical) suggestion to bake stamina into Dark Intent would be necessary to stop the Imp being the preferred pet. just a shame he ignored it/shit on it.
also: no response to the impact of Sac nerf on Destro. it seems incredibly counter productive to spend so much time and effort developing this green fire quest-chain that basically benefits the Warlock spec no-one is playing at the moment (I know there's a camp that says 'Simcraft isn't right Destro is great' yadda yadda but the fact is that in terms of highest potential damage based on the highest ranking parses Destro isn't as good as affliction) and then make a change that actually nerfs that spec. surely the smart move would be to nerf MG for Affliction so not to damage the spec further in PvP, then to buff pets rather than nerf sac to keep Destro at least on the level?
the whole development of Warlocks since Xelnath left seems to be really confused and sloppy.
