Deserved a little nerf?! Little?! You do realize mages have never been buffed in ANY patch, we've just been nerfed, nerfed and nerfed. It's sad. Warlocks are having the same kind of problem, as well. Both my chars get nerfed :( and mages don't have waaay many cc spells; we've only got Frostbolt, Cone of Cold, Frost Nova, and Polymorph. They've been heavily nerfed, though. And Blastwave too, if you count the firetalent[/edit]
Well i know what that feels like. 60 Warlock here... and 32 priest
I've considered rolling a priest, but never got 'round. Two characters are more than enough. However, locks got some love in 1.6.0, though, but most warlocks weren't pleased with the result. In my honest opinion, the demonology tree being more attractive now than before, I'm considering going demon. Mostly 'cause of soul link making me unkillable. Survivability ftw, I says. Out of curiosity, ever heard about Drakedog?
Drakedog.. No, what is it?
Anyways, i didnt find the demonology tree to be too much more impressive. Im gonna stick with SM/Ruin Build. But Demonology has definatly become the warlocks defencive ability.
Edit: 1500 Posts yay.
Drakedog is a very famous destruction lock who's made several 'pvp' movies (this for instance). But demonlocks are definately mage-eaters. 60 resist and about 10k health just kills mages. But I agree with you, I definately prefer high damage over high survivability. Ruin is a killer; gotten around 3000+ crit without any +damage gear.
