    Question How do you all chose to play a warlock ?

    Do you all chose to main a warlock because you are a edgelord , a goth , a emo , a rebelious person , a outcast person , a person how like to use dark powers for greater good , a person who don't care about the opinion of others about what magic he/she use or a occultist who practice occult , magic and black magic in irl ?

    I chose it back in TBC, I thought the gameplay mechanics were interesting and it had a cheaper alternative to a mount. So I don't fall into any of your catagories. It seems to me you have some sort of philosophical or spiritual objection to the warlock class as a whole and are biased against a video game mechanic. I would wager you think Doom promotes Satanism.

    I chose it back in vanilla because it had a pet. Had a mage at around level 16 and wanted a pet too so I rerolled lock.
    Didn't like a class more than locks and have mained one until Legion when I briefly switched to DH.
    Then when classic came, went back to maining a lock in classic and abandoned it in retail in favor of DH (felt redundant to main the same class in both versions). Can't say I'm too fond of what demo and affliction have become either.

    18 years ago or six months after this game came out I picked a warlock. I knew nothing of being "OP" or "bad ass". I didn't even know what those terms meant. I just loved warlocks because of what I saw in movies and from different lore of other games and mythical cultural lore. So I made one and I was like they are cool. Then I learned all about raiding and fighting bosses and doing 40 man raids.

    Back then warlocks were cool and it was rather easy to play them. Their wasn't any of this snapshotting shit and their wasn't all these bitches whining about loot and not much whining about DPS. People had fun. Hell now. It is a whole new story.

    But as of right now, I have shelved my warlock in favor rogues. Warlocks suck and the rotation of affliction is just plain ridiculous.
    People on this thread only get pissed at you when you don't agree with them...FACT

    Originally i picked it in vanilla cuzz it felt the most similar to wc3 Illidan. The gameplay was captivating with demons taking damage for you and being self sustaining. I also liked how there were so many tiny decision making moments which mattered, something that stayed with the claas until BFA.

    Over the years the class and game evolved, MoP redesign came from heaven and they really managed to capture a complicated affliction playstyle which rots doen your enemies in pve and pvp. Both MoP and Legion were high points in that regard. When real demon hunters were released they were so oversimplified i didnt even felt the need to level one.

    Then BFA kinda shat on the class, and SL only fixed demo somewhat (aff being a powerful but unfun mess in raids and just a sad clunky mess in m+). I still enjoy demo and dest but i miss the glory days.

    .
    Omg this was me. I leveled mage and was amazed by the fact that somebody had a pet demon. Rerolled to warlock before I even ventured out of Elwynn Forest. Mained warlock in BC then switched to druid from WotLK to present day

    My warlock is an evil raw emotion which was expelled from my uncorupted mage. It's a complicated story with N'zoth involved. He's the worst! While my mage is being a selfless hero, doing chores, trying to save the world, he's just sitting there like a royal and all he does is Ember Court rave parties till 3 am.

    I chose it more than 10 years back, because I like casters and I like having pets. Also succubus.

    I started with an amazon, it was ok. Leveled her to a point. Made a warlock undead (cuz they look bad ass) leveled them up within a week or 2 in BC. Never touched my hunter again. Who wouldnt want to be a amazing undead warlock??

Warlocks prefer a very blatant display of their power. Walking around with their minions, or having their spells scorch the very earth they are battling upon

    I chose it because my relative played it. Then i began to love the class for its thematics and feel. Especially MoP warlock and to some extent wod warlock, wod does not deserve to be abbreviated like MoP. Affliction was fucked dead in wod though, no dot snapshotting ruined the spec.
    My favourite spec in terms of gameplay and theme is demonology as it was in MoP. It was so much fun and an active joy to play with dot snapshotting doom, immolation aura, demonic leap, carrion swarm, service demon axe toss, chaos wave 2 charge burst, infernal like any other spec for that once in a while short stun. The spec had a engaging way to pool resources and to be used as needed, sometimes you needed burst with meta, sometimes you needed mobility with meta in terms of that shadow bolt conversion and demonic leap and carrion swarm.

    ugh... i miss it

    Honestly, I think it is one of the hardest classes in the game to play well, consistently. Its rotation isn't the hardest per se, but it is one of, if not one of the most punishing classes if you mess up, especially with Aff or Demo.

    I swapped to this after tanking on a warrior since Vanilla, but once they made those shit changes come MoP, I went to Demo, which was a fucking blast, but then have bounced between all 3 specs ever since. Mostly preferring Aff, as it is nice to have a few instant cast spells while doing mechanics. I know, most folks don't do them, but after raiding Savage in FFXIV so much, its ingrained into me to do literally every mechanic possible. Unless I know I can sit through it with CDs, and let my healer know ahead of time.

    Ignoring that people called you out so you edited your OP, this bolded part right here? Do you seriously believe that?

    Because Black was my favorite color in MTG to play. Seemed pretty fitting to me.
    Personality: INTJ

    I like playing the bad guy and warlock is visually pleasing.

    This, but also because I dug the theme. I'm a fan of antiheroes. Also, when I'd gotten to Brill after rolling my first Forsaken way back when, there was a human warlock wrecking the place with an infernal. I was sold and never looked back.

    Back when I was 11 I was really into WC3 custom maps and a lot of them had "summoning" aspects to them, like "Summoner Wars" and "Line Defense". I just got so into summoning things that when I started WoW I instantly went to Warlock and haven't changed since. I think the Bard's Tale is also to blame.

    I started playing vanilla back when I was like 22 I think?

    I could say yes a little to most of those, but never probably not edgelord...well maybe a tiny bit because I was young and stupid and it sounded cool.
