    Wow T11 set bonuses!

    Quote:
    Warlock T11 2P Bonus - Reduces the cast time of your Chaos Bolt, Hand of Gul'dan, and Haunt spells by 10%.
    Warlock T11 4P Bonus - Periodic damage from your Immolate and Unstable Affliction spells has a 2% chance to cause your next Fel Flame spell to have a 100% increased critical strike chance.
    lmao
    2 piece - gg reducing cast time of cooldown spells which have really short cast times anyway
    4 piece - Felflame does naff all damage, that isn't the point of it. it crits for like 3k. The point of fel flame is to give you a way of refreshing dots while moving - and it is very useful in that regard. This set bonus is not. 2% chance to let us definately do 3k damage with our very situational instant cast as opposed to maybe doing it? Gimme a break.

    They made Lifetap ridiculous with it's 20% hp cost. Saying that, particularly in affliction, our self healing would make up for it. They they sprung this little gem on us:

    Quote:
    * Siphon Life now has a 25/50% chance to heal you for 1% of your total health.
    This has already been tested by alot of people on the beta - it's utterly useless. No point in even taking it now.

    Now for demonology:
    Quote:
    Molten Core now has a 5/10/15% chance to proc, up from 4/8/12%. Now procs from Shadow Bolt instead of Corruption.
    Oh wonderful, so now we don't have to cast corruption, but we lose the MASSIVE buff to soulfire in the execute phase granted by Molten Core, since no one in their right mind will cast shadowbolt over soulfire in the execute phase, they may as well just remove SF from molten core.

    Quote:
    Demonic Empowerment now instantly heals the Imp for 30% of its total health instead of increasing its spell critical strike chance. No longer increases Felguard's attack speed.
    EARTH TO BLIZZARD, EARTH TO BLIZZARD, DEMO LOCKS DON'T USE THE IMP, AND WE NEVER WILL. NEITHER OF THE OTHER SPECS CAN GET DEMONIC EMPOWERMENT.

    People will probably think I am being melodramatic. Trust me, I wish that were true.
    People will say "oh it's only beta they'll probs change it before it goes live". Yeah, sure, like they did when locks told them TIME AND TIME AGAIN in the wotlk beta about how truly AWFUL Shadowflame was? We told them it sucked, they didn't listen - it still sucks and is totally useless without a major glyph on live. In cata they upped its CD to 25 seconds, and added a horror effect, it was awesome! Then they took the horror effect away but kept the CD at 25 seconds. SO at level 75 we get a spell which is useless - it hits for 1.4k with 5k spellpower, and leaves a dot which ticks 4 times for 500 per tick. yet it costs twice as much mana as Shadowbolt. Awesome.

    We told them that in the wotlk beta, they did nothing.

    Even if they revert some of these ridiculous changes / nerfs, that won't change the fact that to even put them in in the first place demonstrates a frankly catastrophic lack of understanding of the class or how to balance it properly.

    Man my mage is looking so good right now, Blizzard hasn't got a clue about locks
