sorry for my rude language but green fire looks fucking shit
Yeah, to be honest I'm hoping it's not finalized. I'll still do the quest because it seems pretty neat, but I'm not sure if I'll be using the green fire if it stays looking like this. Incinerate looks too thin, RoF still looks red/unpolished (why not use existing spell effects that look better?), the green smoke clouds look too thick/ugly in general, no green lines on hellfire (whoops nevermind, they added them. Looks quite cool, so no complaints on hellfire!), high demonic fury indicator is still purple while meta and meta's fire spells are green etc. etc.
Hoping the currently set effects were just in there as a placeholder, but I have a feeling that's not the case

Be happy they did anything. Warlocks have been begging for green fire for8 year. its attached to a nice quest chain instead of a glyph and all anyone does is bitch.
They should just scrap the whole line since its obviously not up to your discriminating standards. Please also post your alternatives.
However, I can see why you thought my post was just blindly bashing it, but those weren't my intentions; I was just providing a personal opinion on the effects themselves. Not sure if I just got the brunt of your frustration related to something else/the other qq or what. ANYWAYS, back on topic. I haven't seen much of the quest line as I don't want to spoil it for myself (love WoW lore), but from what I've seen of it it looks AMAZING and I'm definitely going to do it ASAP, my post was just about the thoughts of the current spell effects and saying I'm not sure I'd be using them in destro.
It's all personal opinion though; some people won't use them, some people will. I just think there's a tiny bit of touching up to do (and there likely will be as there has been for existing effects) before 5.2 goes live.
I'll rephrase some of the things in my last post though to make my thoughts a bit more clear:
-- I think the green fire version of incinerate lacks that "oomph" that its normal fire counterpart has that makes the spell such a signature spell for destruction locks. I think making the spell effect itself a bit more dense/brighter would bring that oomph back.
-- Rain of Fire, as you can tell from the videos, is green, but it still has sort of a red glow around them, which some people might actually like, but to ME it makes it look like a quick "that'll do" reskin rather than its own unique spell effect. Not sure if it was intended or not.
-- The green smoke clouds from spells like conflag seem just a bit too thick/dense for my taste. Not much to extend on here, some may like it though, so *shrug*
-- Hellfire looks AMAZING. Is still pretty much a reskin, but it's a top-notch one at that. I don't really have any complaints here.
-- Soul Fire looks a bit underwhelming, but the original effect was a bit too, so I guess not really much to be done to make it look "better"
-- The new meta model seems to be pretty controversial. Some love it and some don't. I personally will be using it. I do think that they should make the in-world demonic fury indicators green too if they're making meta green, though.
Again, it's all personal opinion. Some people may love what other people hate. Was just providing my thoughts and apparently it came out the wrong way
btw does anyone know if they're still going to be adding to the list of things that gets effected by the codex?, e.g., dark apotheosis, dark soul, abyssal pet
in this old video from an unofficial "fire-patch", incinerate looks VERY cool and "dense"
new fel fire have some spells "ugly" IMO
I kinda don't want to watch those unofficially-patched green fire vids because I don't want to wish we had those instead of what we're actually getting ... haha

I wish it was easier than going to SMV to toggle it though, because I think the green stuff looks pretty cool for Destruction but not so cool for Demo. In my opinion that also says Demo should be more purple/shadowflamey.
I greatly prefer the green version, because it looks pretty much like Illidan's, just with different hair and horns. It looks even better when Kanrethad uses it, since he's permanently got the four Burning Embers effect going too, but I still think it's pretty cool.
In my opinion, Demonic Slash needs to become fel-green, too. Illidan's attacks during Metamorphosis in WC3 were ranged, and looked like green energy slashes.
Heck, I wouldn't mind Hand of Gul'dan becoming fel-green, either. You know, considering that the actual Hand of Gul'dan is a giant black volcano constantly spewing green lava.
And destroy the shadow aspect of Warlocks? If a full green approach is where the class is heading then I should be dropping class now that is early. I picked Warlock to combine the Shadowy flavour with the powerful application of magic and I would only pick green fire in order to not use elemental fire. If the majority wants a sickly green Warlock in a wider application and leave Shadowpriests to use the more Shadowy approach then I might say "No thanks, I'm switching".
That's why you can toggle it off ?And destroy the shadow aspect of Warlocks? If a full green approach is where the class is heading then I should be dropping class now that is early.

"If a full green approach is where the class is heading", come on, seriously ?
