First off, I'm asking this question in all seriousness with no "tongue in cheek" about it. I hope this does NOT turn into a flame fest of "U SUK NO U," and that I can get my question answered in a reasonable, well articulated manner. Yeah, here's hoping.
Ahem. That said, my big question:
Why do most (some?) Warlocks feel that they have a RIGHT to have Affliction based PvE specs put out the same kind of damage as a Destro or hybrid Destro spec? It seems that there are a lot of thread about buffing Affliction damage because it's subpar to Destro (very true, no scaling with crit/haste is Bad), but any time the suggestion that they spec to a PvE Destro based one it's met with cries of "OMG NO WAI AFFLIC 4 LIFE!"
I play a Mage, and I LOVE the playstyle of Arcane. I loved my Arc/Frost spec to death, but was frustrated by it's inability to compete due to lack of group/raid support and had to abandon it. While I will suggest changes and hope that it gets buffed to viability, I STILL spec Fire in order to keep my dps where it's expected for my class at the level I'm raiding.
It seems that Warlocks (and Paladins, but don't get me started there) are among the few classes that insistently demand that they have their personal favorite trees buffed and refuse to accept the fact that you sometimes have to make a choice between "favorite tree" and "best tree for doing what you're brought to raids for," which every class has to make.
Anyway, I hope I can get some serious answers here, and that the mods will perhaps assist me in keeping this civil. Cheers.
