"Humility defeats pride, Master Yang has preached. Pride defeats man"
Mostly the lore. The "evil" demonic thing sounds kinda cool to me.
Also, I've played the same warlock main since 2006, by this point I can't really imagine changing. I have alts, but they'll never, ever be my main. If the Warlock class was screwed over and made unplayable I'd sooner quit than reroll. I've stuck with the class through the highs and lows, I'm not going to stop now.
Most entertaining class ever made
Doesnt matter how many nerfs they throw at us, we will always be enjoyable
The poor Blood Elf male was stripped naked. Hoof imprints on his muscular back. The magnataur female had him up against a ruined wall of some ancient ice troll grounds. His legs were spread revealing his tight poop launcher. He was shivering. Northrend was never kind.
The magnataur roared in dominance! The blood elf was confused, weren't the males the alphas and more dominate? Everything he knew about magnataur mating was about to change...
WoW US forums in a nutshell.
the game doesn't show much of the sacrificial aspect of fel magic (besides life tap and drain life), but in the comics, when Soulfire was summoning a doomguard, he sacrificed the grass under his feet. that caused the grass to get burned, similarly to how the grass burns under the feet of the undead warlock in the World of Warcraft Original Opening Cinematic.
IMHO it would be pretty awesome if the grass was to get burned in-game as well when we cast our spells and summon demons
always wanted to play a 'lock since Classic - rolled one at the start of Cata - very late I know... loved it since. green fire gave me the chance to spend some time learning the class a bit better and my main now going forward.... god bless green fire
Do not try the patience of wizards, for they are subtle and quick to anger - Elric - The Geometry of Shadows
Started as a lock switched to a pally for BC. End of wotlk dropped the pally for the lock, started doing heroic ICC with her.
skipped cata, started at mop. Green fire Cmode gear. Lore, How awesome it is to be a lock, My warlock is my permamain
Could never settle on a main. Kept quitting and coming back to WoW from Vanilla up to Cataclysm and each time would be a new class I'd try to main. Have always had a certain affection toward casters, but the Warlock was supremely unappealing for some reason.
Then one day, just before I cancelled my subscription, I jumped on the PTR for a laugh. Created a Pre-Made Warlock for the hell of it, because I didn't want to quit WoW permanently without trying out every class.
It fit perfectly. I've never taken to a class, in ANY game as well as I did to that Destro Lock. Felt insanely natural. Don't think I lost a duel/arena the entire time the PTR was up. And yes, I understand that doesn't mean a lot, particularly because it is the PTR, but it felt so good that I re-subbed and started up a Warlock for the first time. Then I quit for 1.5 years... But I'm back now to finish the job!
well i actually dont remember started at vannila
was wondering why there is so few locks and still playing it
(and still dont get why there is so few of locks everywhere always wanted and spammed in recruitment)
and from bc added shadow priest as secondary main (no its not alt from that time both chars had same raid progression)

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.
I won't ask you to read the World of Warcraft Comics to confirm it, because you may not have them. I'll just show you a Blue tweet from Sean Copeland, Blizzard's historian.

I read the WowWiki and the descriptions of Fel Magic are kinda all over the place.
First the article says it's Arcane magic at it's most Corrupt. O.K.
Then two sentences later they say it's the embodiment of the drug (Arcane) in it's purest form. How can it be both pure and corrupt?

WoWpedia is also pretty outdated as far as comic book and novel lore goes, but it's the best we have. at least they try to separate what's canon from what's not canon. Between bad and worse, I'd stick with WoWpedia.
Used to be DoT and go......the more mobs you could get DoT'd up the more you could pull.
Me thinks Chromie has a whole lot of splaining to do!
You can argue that melee is too weak but IMO ranged are way too strong, esp while moving. Excluding hunters ranged should do minimal dps while moving.
When I started one in 2007 it was because it was a ranged class that was never limited by mana. Every other ranged class essentially couldn't go full blast dps all the time like a warlock could or they'd oom if the fight was long enough.
warlock was the second char i leveled to 60 back in Vanilla, in no order:
-interesting lore and class quests
-casting while moving
and many others
The themes expressed in the class coupled with how strong it is makes me love playing my Warlock.
Three varied and interesting specs
Bad ass tier gear
And more recently, finally getting GREEN FIRE as we should have from the start.
