For some reason whenever I point out that Hunters/Warriors are easy to play, I get laughed at because Warlock is apparently faceroll. lol.


Warrior is harder to play than you'd think


Lots and lots of abilities are used, more than any other class I've played


I have a Warrior. I try less to beat people :/

What's generally the best warlock spec in arena right now anyway? Haven't played warlock pvp since BC and I did destruction back then.

Hmm most people say Demo because it's hard to get CBs off as Destro.

I think after Chaos Wave ate a super hard nerfbat in the face Destro is now on top for arenas. I play aff at a very low level (1500-ish) and most of the other warlocks I see now are destro. Demo basically revolved around popping CDs and landing double chaos wave and now that both the spell and the trinkets have been nerfed it can't use that gimmick anymore, whereas Destro still has a variety of tools in addition to Chaos Bolt (though that's admittedly what the spec revolves around).

The buff to Unstable Affliction will help a ton in 5.2; healers will actually have to think twice before dispelling again.

Warrior now, you got me, but in cata it was somewhat hard to play. same with hunter, but if you play mm or sv in pvp now it's alot more skill based. bm is and always will be faceroll.

I liked Warr more in Cata because you had to manage your rage, stance dance etc.

They're better in randoms because you have the freedom to multidot like mad and just let numbers tick up. In arenas the goal isn't to get max damage, it's to kill the other team, and that's something Affliction struggled with even in Cataclysm (their superiority in arena then was mainly due to good CC, good survivability, multidotting and dispel protection).

Unholy dk and afflock is going to be top in 5.2 with shadow priest due to the huge numbers they can sustain with no effort. Probably will see the rise of druids accordingly, but depending on how fear ends up sham may hold strong thanks to tremor. Game will become boring, skill-less slow burn as healing and burst are both nerfed.

It's too bad. We saw in wotlk that boring caster cleave control pretty much wrecked arena participation and spectating. At least these games will end i suppose.
