    Default Warlock Thread

    So at the moment there is no thread for anyone whos going to be a Warlock, considering it or has some sort of interest in the class.
    a
    What are your thoughs about the class? How it will play? What do you like about it? Anything else you may have to add.

    Myself I like the idea of having strong dots spells with weak nuke type spells. Plus from the screenshots the armour looks great.

    I will roll a lock IF there is no necromancer class. Personally I like strong dots with decent CC abilities and a pet. And as you have mentioned, armour does look awsome!

    Well

    Firstly because it allows me to make Deathpaste easily.
    Secondly, I prefer spreading diseases around rather than throwing fireballs.
    I think the Warlock will be a very good soul, if there is an Enchanter type class in game then the Warlock + that will be ungodly.

    Diseases sound great, hope they're decent and they make up for the DoT part.

    Few months ago (before I cut my hair short, it was shoulder length dark brown) I was pulled over by the local police cause I had a tail light out and the wrote me a repair order to get it fixed. So I did and took the car by the police station for them to check it and sign off on it. After all was said and done I went to get back in my car I saw a folded piece of paper on my windshield. I pulled it off and opened it up. It was a copy of a chapter from the bible and written on it in red pen was "Evil Warlack!" lol I guess this bible thumper was telling me what my calling in Rift will be if there is no necro class. True story.

    But in seriouness, if there is no necro, I may cross a warlock with an elementalist to aquire the same kinda thing.

    I get called jesus where I walk and on-topic I was thinking more of Warlock and possibly a caster with more upfront nukes (we'll see if one exists) for some dots and large nukes but I'll have to wait to find out.

    More or less the same thinking as you for wanting to roll a Nerocmancer opps i mean Warlock.
    Death is great people are dying to get there.

    Death is great it's the cure to Life.

    ill have a warlock... probably mixed with a necro soul and either an elementalist or a pyromancer... i always liked my lock with decent dots and huge nukes that take a 2-3 second cast with a pet to keep things interesting...

    You smell of a Trion spy!

    Anyways, Necromancers generally raise undead minions, while Warlocks vary from game to game. In WoW they are more similar to the Necro (there is no Necro in WoW), but in EQ2 they are an evil counterpart to the Wizard, while the Necro is the evil counterpart to the Conjurer.

    seeing as how i doubt there will be a pure necro.. i will roll a lock prolly.

    honestly, the eq necro was a dot wizard once you were at the front of raid progression, thus being a pet class isnt what i love about the eq nec .. our dps was on par with a rogue. ..our utility was amazing. .. the AA was such win.

    eq nec pets were a novel perk imo.. i will not discount how fun the swam pets were... ...such fun. ...the static pets were gimpy and only good for kite / group dps.

    i miss my red clicky skelle from deathwhisper...
    (and the dps from 2.5 necro epic! was ....sooo leet.)

    the lock is most likely my calling, will work my soul selection to be dps based with a decent amount of cc and some aoe.

    WTB lifetaps and group hots via dots.. & FD !

    I'm definitely feeling a warlock at the moment. It's so satisfying to cast a few dots on your opponent and then watch his life tick away. My favorite part about being a class that primarily does dots is the opportunity to kite multiple mobs. If I can couple the warlock with some snaring abilities, that would be absolutely AWESOME. I love having several mobs chasing me, casting dots on all of them, and watching them croak one after the other. Getting excited just thinking about it
