I was wondering if any of you still did. If so what server. I am bored with my other toons and I want to start over somewhere else.

I heard that that game can take over your entire life, I guess I'm lucky I live off of dialup so mmorpg games are out of the question.

I also heard Jeff say he played that game, I can't remember how recent that was though.

I just got back to the States and the first thing I did as soon as I got my Internet back was reactivate my WoW account. I'm on the same server I've always been on: Mal'Ganais, my username is.... drum roll please.... Sandamnit

I'm an Undead Warlock, Level 13 right now. I'd be higher level if I hadn't fucked up and started a Troll Shaman, got to Level 13 and realized that I already have a Level 30 Troll Shaman on the same server. I decided to swap races and try a different class.

My character right now has an Imp and Voidwalker minions and is taking on creatures 2 levels above his own, so it's a pretty tough warlock. Oddly enough, I chose warlock, because I remember you telling me that you were able to powerlevel with a warlock. I was pretty much able to do the same for the lower level. I think within 2 hours, I was up to Level 9, which ain't bad, after a year away from Wow.

If you're getting on WoW, just send me a /tell or whatever. I'll be on a lot, since I have nothing better to do, currently, and I'm holding off on INTL4 until I go back to Indiana on leave (and not playing WoW while on leave).

I can't bring myself to start that game again. Worst realisation in the game (IMO) is hitting 60 as a pally and going to MC -- there are 5+ of you and you do nothing.

Sandy, as I remember, Warlocks were really good at levelling with the VoidWalker for several levels after they got their new rank of Taunt, but as they got closer to the next rank its ability to hold aggro was shameful in comparison to the extreme DPS of tri-dotting and spamming of shadowbolt and other tricks. That was a pretty good experience though.

Warlocks don't touch Voidwalker after level 20, Succubus is where it's at. If you're an Affliction lock, which you should be for leveling, your fight looks like this:
Engage Succubus
Immolate
Curse of Agony
Corruption
Fear
Next mob

If I wasn't so addicted to rogues the next best thing is a warlock.

I had it all... I was main tank for a BWL guild, with hundreds of DKP points to spare. The day before our first successful Nefarian attempt, I got kicked for sassing the guild leader. Argh, I'm never touching this game again.

I'm using my succubus and while she's more powerful than the voidwalker, after every single battle, I have to Health Funnel to her in order to keep her alive. I mean, it's just a minor nuisance, but she'll improve, I hope.

That's odd...I recall that I'd rip aggro right off her as soon as the immolate hit. Are you fearing then wanding or just wanding?

The problem is that you're just not killing the creeps fast enough. As a warlock, you should pretty much never ever be using your wand for anything but totem-killing, and finishing off a runner that has 3HP left (Unless you're a priest, priests get alot more usage out of wands). The only other purpose for wands is when you're Raiding and you use the wands to Proc Judgement of Wisdom for some free mana (N/A if you're Horde anyways).

Rather than using the wand, try Drain Life after Corruption on your list; if you time your Drain Life and Life Tap correctly, you should almost never have to drink again, just stock up on bandages.

My other question is what build are you going for?

Finally, people may have told you that the mount is free, and you only have to talk to some guy once to get it...
Well they're fucking liars, you have to talk to that guy TWICE; which incidentally is TWICE as hard as people lead you on to believe, so beware of that too.

This has always sounded/looked like an interesting game, and might buy it when I have access to the internet again. It just seems seems too complicated though. Have you guys bought the game books, or do you just learn by trial and error over time. I would really hate to build a mid level character and find out that I had fucked something up.

You can't really fuck anything up. At worst you would spend a few gold to redo your talent tree, but that's about the only choice you make.

There are various sites online that outline this game and just about every single aspect to it.

www.thottbot.com
www.goblinworkshop.com

I pretty much use those sites religiously when I'm playing this game.

He means what talent tree are you going into. Personally, I'd suggest an affliction/demonology spec for leveling. You'll never run out of mana, rarely die, and do pretty heavy damage after 30 or so.

Well they're fucking liars, you have to talk to that guy TWICE; which incidentally is TWICE as hard as people lead you on to believe, so beware of that too.


My warlock is level 60, and I have half Affliction and half Demonology. I have Ruin and Shadow Burn, and enough into Affliction to get the good stuff from that tree. Mostly I wanted to have three instant cast dots, and be able to do more damage with my fire based spells. I have tons of HP and Mana, and can outlast a priest in a duel.


At level 60 you should be able to take out 5 mobs at once as long as they aren't elites.

I also use nothing but imp, unless the situation calls for it. Blood pact is too strong of an ability not to use. At level 60 it gives me 42 extra stamina, which is an assload of HP - plus it never draws aggro, which is nice. He is a life a free dot.

Usually when I enter a battle it goes something like...

Immolate - the reason you use this first is because it is the only dot you have with a casting time. Do it first... the initial damage from that spell also can't break fear because it comes first.

Fear

Corruption

Curse of Agony

Siphon Life

Drain Life

This should be doing massive amounts of damage, while leaving you free to fear the mob around, or apply dots to another mobs. Once everything around you is running and dying at the same time, feel free to lob shadowbolts at them to wear them down. It makes for intense moments sometimes, but its fun. It makes you tougher for PVP too.
Rather than filling it overfull, its better to stop in time.

Three of my real life friends just bought WoW and started playing, so I decided to start yet another new character on one of the new servers Blizzard recently put up. When they're not playing, I'll go back to my Warlock on Mal'Ganais; however, right now I'm up to Level 15 Warrior with about 12 hours of gameplay, from yesterday alone. Servers are down for maintenance right now though, otherwise I'd be on there right now, building up my tank.

Honestly, I got bored playing on a server that has 80% Level 60's, where another 15% are Level 40 and up, so my Warlock isn't a high priority right now. It's such a pain in the ass trying to find a party to do RFC, WC, SFK, and BFD. The new server has a lot more evenly spaced out characters, so I don't feel so isolated and bored at lower-to-mid range levels. I'll probably stay on that server for the time being.

The server I'm on is Gul'dan, by the way, name is Sandamnit. We're playing as Alliance, so feel free to hop on board. I'll be playing up until the 1st of February, then resuming on the 20th.

Tip: Don't spend any points in the protection talent tree until you reach level 40. It will only make things go slower, plus you don't really need it till then.
