    Warlocks have no damage niches like a typically balanced class. Instead they excel at dealing every type of damage more than every other class. Burst + sustained, Single target? no problem. DoT cleave? no problem. AOE? hell yes. Normal non-god classes have a weakness in one or more of those areas whereas locks do not on top of providing 3 raid utilites : gateway, healthstones, and soulstone rez.

    As if that's not enough they can STILL cast while moving, have a sort of immunity + 2 whole tiers of talents dedicated to personal survivabilty and finally personal port.

    Warlocks just get it all with no drawbacks all because of "low representation". Idk how that justifies one class being literally god of the game for an entire expansion and needing to have 3 viable specs on this one pure when most classes barely had one

    Pretty much this. Makes you happy you got a Warlock who gets rank 1# on a lot of fights, since not having one is basically out of the question for any progression focused guild. But although I love our Warlock and love his utility, his dps and his ability to survive where most others will die, I too have to ask, how Blizz can defend Warlocks being so OP for an entire expansion.

    Most shocking poll results 2013. Not really, warlocks are really good. Surprised rogues aren't a bit higher though, damage/survivability/utility from them is great.

    Rogues are melee though. They're the best melee, sure, but being melee period is a huge drawback.

    Well, looks like this thread has had its question answered XD
    I have to go with Warlocks too though. Healthstones are such a boon for any raid group, as well as providing both int and stam buffs... Oh, and portals for fights that require large distances to be covered fast.

    This expansion warlocks are op in every aspect of the game, at least pve wise. 10m raiding is really hard without one (better if you have 2). For 25m the more you have, the better
