So there was a forum going on that had people consistently getting mad over a game, like so many people do anymore. It was about resilence and dots.
My main is a rogue, Coconuter on Darkspear, I'm much into pve, however, I look at a lot of things and tend to take in a bunch more that others tend to leave out I think.
My alt is a warlock, all I do is pvp, pvp, pvp, because it's easy as hell to beat people down with warlocks in pvp. This just proves that many specs of a warlocks is easy to play and adapt to, however, playing one as long as I have in pvp, and having had played with many other classes that comment on them I've learned a few things.
Now, I'm going to stick to more arena type stuff because that seems to be the big issue.
One is that people consistently feel that DoTs are extremely over powered along with the warlock class; I feel its people not knowing quite what to do with a warlock and the DoTs.
Sure you can say wow they are an instant cast that do lots of damage, and so on. Compared to (lets go to the big mage arguement) a fireball that you have to cast to do instant damage. So many people see the dot as being so much better, and for moving you bet it is. However, unlike an instant high amount of damage a DoT can be stopped. Yes people, all warlock dot's can be dispelled, otherwise they'd just stick amplify curse CoD on you and avoid everthing you do for a minute with a couple of fears.
My suggestion is that people go play a warlock to learn more about their weaknesses, just like you play a class to learn its strengths. Theres ways around everything in the game, you just have to know what to do in order to get a good chance at succeeding.
As for the mages whining about warlocks being terribly overpowered and such and dots, get a pally clense it. You have to learn what you need for things you cant deal with well.
My last arena partner everytime 2 mages were on a team, went invisible, then BAM goes AP PoM pyro and bye bye priest; not leaving me in a good situation.
I'm not saying that resilience should or shouldn't do something, I'm just saying you need to be more open minded to see more of a picture. And don't go into the whole name calling thing, its a game over the internet and if your truly mad about it then your very childish.
My example about being open minded, a girl you really like walks by, your gonna think shes beautiful, even if shes just alright looking because your blinded to only see the good. Think about stuff and consider the good and bad.
