    I dont feel like my class anymore...

    i feel locks are mimiking other classes. when i first hit 85 i played destro until we started raiding. after a few fights i felt like i was playing my fire mage...alright w/e i have 2 other specs. so i went drain life affliction, hello shadow priest...am i the only one who feels like demo is the only real warlock spec anymore?

    You either shoot lazors or dot.

    Yes, Demonology is distinctive from all others. Minus Beast MAstery hunter.

    Your call. It's called homogeneization, we had that in early wotlk iirc.

    The definition of a Warlock is a Mage who has turned to dark magic as apposed to regular magic. So it's obvious why those two are similar.

    Warlocks were the go to DoT class way before shadow priests were.

    Affliction Warlock = Shadow Priest
    Demonology Warlock = Beast Mastery Hunter
    Destruction Warlock = Fire Mage

    funny ... ive never seen a hunter transform into a huge ass gorilla and come and roflstomp ur ass, i really dont see how those two are alike apart from being pet specs that rely more on their pets then others.

    Personally i play affliction + SB and i find it to be extremely warlocky

    and loving every minute of it, my S-priest is not as much fun tbh.

    What she said.
    As an altaholic who plays pretty much everything (Played everything but Mage at max level over the years and i'm working on that atm), I would have to say that the classes feels nothing like eachother.
    Warlocks are thematically corrupted Mages in the same vein that Death Knights are essentially the evil counterpart to Paladins.
    And while they have much in common, the feel (or general rotation if you wanna be picky) of playing them is very different.

    You've never seen this spell before? http://www.wowhead.com/spell=19574

    Both spells are a short-term enrage; nothing more.

    You are correct.
    The point I was trying to make is that a lot of specs share startling similarities, and it's one of the ways blizzard is choosing to balance the game now. Each spec is a variation on the spec of another spec, which is a variation on a spec of another spec, which is...

    I think he is referring to Metamorphosis.

    I wonder why suddenly so many people whine about this.

    First of all, It's not true. If you play both classes like I do, you know. Second of all, modern warlocks have a more distinct gameplay than ever. back in TBC I hardly ever saw warlocks whining about this ridiculous statement, even if the TBC warlock was a mind numbing, Sb spamming class.

    PvE view:
    Metamorphosis: 20% extra damage for 30 seconds (+6 seconds if glyphed) on a 3 minute cooldown
    Bestial Wrath: 20% extra pet damage for 10 seconds (+10% damage for you if you take Beast Within) on a 1 minute cooldown
    They're both variations on a theme: short term enrage.

    the point is even with that talent you wont see a hunter go up close and personal on you.

    You are missing the point.... we (warlock in demon form) look AWESOMER Just did a 4min53s Argaloth fight with 36.6% of time in demon form.... was able to pop it 3 times with the proc shorter CD.

    But seriously, we are the original DoT and curses class, specialized on shadow. Even in priests have one specc using some shadow spells, it's hardly similar.
