Warlock

What is a Warlock's role in an end game instance?
large amount of DPS. the highest amount being on bosses. curses, slight cc(banish, seduce, and on the rare occasion a fear) health stone dispenser Razz and soul stone, for quicker recovery of party

What is the difference between a good and bad Warlock?
being speced and geared properly for maxim damage, knowing enough not to use junk damage spells that your not geared or specced for, ie, fire spells with +shadow gear. and in general not researching proper requirement for raids. (not being hit capped)

Please briefly explain how a Warlock should equip himself for PvE. How should each statistic (eg. Intellect, Crit%, Spell Hit%, Defense, Spell Damage, etc...) be considered, and why?
there is different answers for different builds. for my own build of 0/21/40. its important to be hit capped for boss fights. having a spell hit ratting of 202 is needed to make sure you don't waste bonus spell damage and crit, if you cant hit your target. spell crit and bonus damage are the most important things to look for in gear for pve. stamina not being as important, because you shouldn't be taking to many hits anyways in the raid environment. some players over look the fact that intellect also adds a bit of crit chance, so having that inst a bad idea. with thew addiction of haste, i have found it improves my damage to trash mobs in pve. where it may let me get in an extra shadow bolt, before quick attacking classes can down the target. (damn you rogues and shammies!)

Please give examples of at least two viable PvE raiding builds, and a brief description of the pros and cons of each.
0/21/40 - ruin allows for high damage crits, high damage shadowbolts, and ability to sacrifice for a 15% shadow damage bonus. if you do not meet min specs for this build, your damage will be very poor. about 1000k bonus shadow damage, hit capped at 202 and 17% crit chance min needed

44/13/0 - great for less than great gear, excellent for soloing, and to help heal yourself with siphon life, helping healers out. conserves mana well. when your gear gets better, it becomes hard to keep up with a destruction warlock for damage and dps.


For your particular PvE raiding build (specify), please briefly explain how to maximize your DPS. You may want to explain when and how you use each spell, how frequently DoTs are refreshed, how each cooldown is utilized, etc..
i start each fight with a curse of elements, unless another warlock beats me too it. then i just launch shadowbolts, watching that my threat doesn't get to high. in the case it does i would hit a soul shatter, or calm down on my damage. i hit my bonus damage trinkets every time their cool down is up. that's the way most fights would go, that dont require a banish to be watched, or a special technique.

Are there any situations where you feel it is not beneficial or not appropriate to use DoTs? Explain your answer.
with my spec, i do not DOT trash, because i only have one instant dot, and that one does very little damage until its almost done. and most faster dps classes have the them dead by that time. for maximum damage, i just use shadowbolts.

Warlocks are often prone to aggro-related problems. What can a Warlock do to counteract this? Explain your answer.
i let the tank build a few k threat before starting my attack, i use omen to monitor my threat and in the case that it peaks, i hit a soul shatter. if i peak twice in one fight, i slow down on the high damage shadowbolts. and dot the target. this doesn't happen often, because with the downtime from lifetap, i lose some of my built up threat.

What purpose do Warlock pets have in PvE?
each has their own benefit, the most common pve use for a pet would be the imp buff. in some builds it helps share damage, or do damage. in my current build its mostly for a sacrifice to gain the shadow damage bonus.

In addition to your own DPS, how else can a Warlock contribute to a PvE raid group?
curse of elements on a target helps all caster classes. also things said above. - slight cc(banish, seduce, and on the rare occasion a fear) health stone dispenser Razz and soul stone, for quicker recovery of party

i hope i answered your question in the way you were looking for, if you need anything else from me, feel free to just ask!
i look forward to the chance to raid with you all in the future Very Happy

Spell damage seems a little low to me, but there is the trinket from H MgT that I am assuming your farming for which should bring that up ~44? Anyways, just my thoughts, was mainly posting to link armory.

Timbal's Focusing Crystal is the trinket i assume your talking about. its a affliction trinket, that deals damage when one of your spells deals periodic damage, like a DOT.

just curious, what gear isn't at your content level? i have 5 pieces of badge gear. belt of blasting. armory hasn't added haste yet, which some of my gear has over spell damage. the wrists could be improved. not by a ton, but they could, i wear the t4 helm and shoulder combo, over the t5 because of the 2 set bonus, which procs pretty often for 15 seconds, is like an extra trinket. one of my rings could be replaced by the hyjal attunment ring. i would replace my gloves if i didn't need that hit rating. when self buffed i'm at about 1300 bonus shadow damage. if you looking at only my spell damage, it would be low because i only use shadow spells so only stack shadow damage. from everything i read. the only place i can really improve my gear would be hyjal/bt. so i was just wondering. what gear would you like to see me in that would insure my acceptance into the guild at the level you think you would need me?


try entering me there?

If you don't have the Hyjal attunement ring then you can't bring it up as an upgrade - killing Kael/Vashj isn't just a simple thing. T4 + Badge Gear isn't T6, that what you need for T5 content.

For casters, a lot of the new badge gear is T5 level... meaning that you can go into T6 content wearing it. Especially considering since there aren't many upgrades if you consider spell dmg, hit and crit... as a caster you won't be picking up many upgrades in SSC/TK... everything that drops in there is pretty crappy.

Plus... the T4 bonus for locks is actually good... I know a lot of locks who wear it far into T5/going into T6. T4 + old badge gear yea... but the new badge gear you can definitely wear into T6.

i suppose its hard to take my word for it, that i can put out dps. if you would like to try me out in a raid environment before you choose to take me on, that's totally fine with me. sometimes people can have exceptional gear, but be lousy players. so you never really can tell just by gear.
either way, i thank you all for your consideration of my application, i look forward at the chance to play with you in the future.

i would like to thank everyone for your interest in my application. unfortunately i was turned down, due to no open spots. i guess its because there have been so many other warlocks applying this last week. i wish you all good luck in the future and your attempts at content.
thanks, sylentred
