Well i made this post as a reply to another thread and isntead thought id make a new thread as the topic could be expanded upon. Im intereste din hearing your opinions too. Basically, according to the Warlock lore, which of the 3 specs is the "Most Warlocky" to you and which is the least?
For me i do have to say Aff feels like the least Warlocky spec. People have this preconceived notion that warlocks are about sapping life and health. We are not. Read up on Warlock Lore. We are about summoning demonic energies and servants to aid us in our lust for Power. We crave power, every inch and morsel of it. We use demonic and fel energies as our servants to get more power. Aff purely uses Shadow magic, sure they can use Fel Flame but then so can every other spec so its not really special there. nothing about Aff screams warlock to me, We dont even have DEMONS anymore with GoSac...When i play Aff i feel like a glorified shadow priest.
For me, Demonology feels like the most "Warlocky" spec. We are masters of both shadow and fire, twisting fel energies to do our bidding. Ascending to another plane as we let those energies enter our bodies, ripping away our flesh and revealing what we truely are after the corruption has taken us. Summoning a veritable army of demonic servants to aid us (I had 13 demons out at last count during a 6 minute fight) and proving we are the masters of the demonic powers. We do not confine ourselves to the powers of either fire or shadow, we use both masterfully. When we stand over the heap of sickly green ash that was once our enemies, they shall realise who the real monster is here.
