    I completed the quest in 490 gear and used green fire all the way up until just a few days ago. I switched primarily because, while I used to get whispers everyday regarding the quest (either how to get or advice on how to complete), I never do anymore. The quest has become too easy.

    On a secondary, less important, note: The new dreadsteed is truly abysmal looking. I did the original dreadsteed quest at 60 and I am a very proud warlock, the 5.4 update for a green dreadsteed was a huge mistake imo.
    You're just jealous because the voices are talking to me!

    Because people have different cosmetic preferences?

    Erm, why? They took the best possible approach: if you want it, you have it; if you prefer how it used to look you ignore it.

    Hipsters are butthurt more people are getting it.

    Its all about wanting to be special over others.

    I got mine when 5.2 first came out and I still use it. Other people having it does not affect how much I personally like it. Because, you know, I'm an adult.
    Men, you've trained for this. You're among the elite. You are Skyfire men! This is the ship that took down Deathwing. You think some raggedy little Horde outpost stands a chance against the pride of the Alliance fleet? NO! Those green dirtbags down there plagued your homes in Southshore, laid siege to your children in Redridge, and massacred every man, woman and child in Theramore. It. Is. PAYBACK TIME!

    once upon a time when ilvl was lower and killing Ebonlocke was harder there was a sense of pride having the green fires, it was sort of a visual achievement to show off that you managed to do something only small percentage of warlocks managed to do. but now ... this is no longer the case, green fires got too accessible and somewhat lost its charm.

    Or they could just not like the way it looks. People want there to be a more whiney reason behind it though. So they can say "LOL LOOK! SPEXCEAL SMWUFWAKEZ!"
    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.

    This. Some people I know have changed back to orange is because they felt it was not a big deal anymore.
    I'm with Krazy on this.

    7 years wanting green fire. An amazing quest line (if you didn't overgeared it). And now I have only good memories about the whole thing and still like green fire much more than orange. Altough I'd like way more if it was purple... meh.

    Still using it.

    I rolled a lock just for green fire. Why? Because red fire is for mages.
    I can't help but feel my "epic" experience being diminished when I wage battle against mighty Ordos and 10 people in the raid do nothing but /jump and /fart ...

    Because green fire is too distracting compared to red

    No there's no reason this tier for it to be turned off performance wise.

    If it really decreases FPS, then you're playing on an outdated computer, simple as that

    Not everyone likes green.

    If you like green fire. Then use green fire.
    I for one still use green fire, I waited 9 years for it, so yeah I am going to use it : P

    I love green fire but, ofc, they made the content become gradually easier with gear - Things with special cosmetic rewards should have a flat ilvl for it when you go in, it's just so stupid how hard Blizzard tries to make it that everyone can have a piece of it. And the only reward that people who actually do it at the current time is that they get it a few months earlier, woopdefuckingdoo.

    honestly ?
    Couldn't give a flying monkey fuck about the color of spells.
    as usual it was the vocal minority demanding it, now they have it they are beginning to switch back to red.

    Because when everyone gets to be special . . . nobody is. I imagine warlocks with "normal" fire are the odd ones out anymore.

    How many people do you see flying around on faction mounts (gryphons/wyverns) anymore? Now that everyone, their mom, and their dog has a "unique" dragon.

    I like the spelleffects, but i truly despise that the icons colours changed, and the mounts model. It looks like the screen is broken, bleached icons.

    I'm using the green fire, but I've made new macros just to change the icons on the spells.

    Didnt you get some archievement or something to show off "i did it back when it was hard" ?

    Locks that choose orange fire over green fire (now that it's available) are heretics. Go and roll a mage!

    green fire was ok for a while... somewhat interesting.. but i got bored of it and switched back to orange. i honestly wish we got blue fire that'd be way more interesting.
