    Losing my embers while waiting for tank to pull Annoying!!!!!!!! Pls fix Bliz

    It's really annoying for a lock to build up his embers before a boss pull, to just lose them while waiting for the tank to pull. Blizzard needs to look into this and either change or take away completely!

    Sounds like Holy Power...
    While Diogenes was relaxing in the sunlight in the morning, Alexander, thrilled to meet the famous philosopher, asked if there was any favour he might do for him. Diogenes replied, "Yes, stand out of my sunlight". Alexander then declared, "If I were not Alexander, then I should wish to be Diogenes", to which Diogenes replied, "If I were not Diogenes, I should also wish to be Diogenes."

    So, you're saying that you should get to start with four Chaos Bolts? Yeah, I'm sure Blizzard will agree about that.

    Why try to repair something that isn't broken? I don't complain about my disco priest mana-saving-dps-and-healing-increasing-buff-whatsitsname wearing off, because that's how they work and are suppose to work.

    Perfect example of why "community" forums are poisonous to the health of a development team. These developers are wasting hundreds of hours trying to stem the tide of incessant bitchery that would never, ever abate so long as these entitled, unfortunate human beings don't get their way.

    Thats a little extreme. However its a case that all resource building classes suffer from and something that isn't likely to change. Full fury or embers at a start of a fight can really boost a warlocks damage so it shouldn't be something dismissed in hyperbole.

    You know a community is bad when moderators lock a thread because "...this isnt the place to talk about it either seeing as it will get trolled..."

    Same thing has happened to warriors for years, Pallies with holy power that decays when out of combat etc etc. Its not a warlock only problem OP. My only real problem with it is tanks that sit and wait when everyone has eaten and buffed and ready to go. Its like they are just waiting for your resource to fully decay before they pull. But now that a lock has complained blizzard might do something to fix it :P

    Agree, it's something that should be fixed because it's not a warlock-only problem.

    You're not meant to start with Embers though, it's something worth doing because it boosts your damage but balancing that against the headache is intentional.

    You don't want Blizzard to fix it, because if they did it'd be with the Monk method of resetting them to 1 every time a boss gets pulled (even if Monks have found a way around that) and then you wouldn't get any "extra" damage at all

    My advice : try to use all your embers on the trashs (ok it might be hard with SB ), best way for not raging during 3 minutes while people are casually taking their food.

    reminds me a bit of affliction, where i soulburn prefight and hope the tank pulls in the 10sec window where i have 4 shards + soulburn up. every pull is a gamble. and no my guild doesnt want to make a 20sec+ pull timer ^^

    You can complain about this in 5.0. In 5.1, getting those embers back isn't really hard.

    Blizzard does balance assuming you are starting from a set point resource wise on every pull. If they didn't degrade of out combat we would see a repeat of Cata boomkiins that had to either quit trash early or find critters so they could get setup right. Besides a majority of your pulls you won't have those embers so why worry about them.

    Why? Blizzard has said time and time again they also take feedback from fansites and MMO-Champion is the biggest one.
