    Default Warlock became so useless in pvp

    I really enjoyed playing warlock but since 1.7 my dots tick at 10-20 on rogues... seriously Trion? besides I can't CC anyone as they all have immunity...
    mages have been nerfed way too much for me to play it...game uninstalled. going to something new.

    No Warlock absolutely stinks in PvP now. I played it from about 1.4 - 1.6 reasonably successfully but now its simply crap.

    Pyro is the go to soul in 1.7. Apparently Warlock is being looked at in this round so maybe it can be dusted off for 1.8. Here's hoping.

    I took "this cycle" to mean the next batch of hotfixes. Is Trion really okay with Warlock a spec a lot of people made the class for being bad until 1.8? Seriously?

    Do you remember how long Dominator stayed ****ty after they added DR in pvp? Remember how far the entire class was behind on DPS for like 3 patches before 1.6?

    Yeah, Lock is a lot of work to burn peeps down. Neddra's Influence NEEDS to be buffed up so if you've spent a lot of pnts into Lock and dots are your main weapon, they actually HIT someone for decent dmg....as is....meh. I can actually get top dmg at times in WFs with lock...but top kills? lol.....rarely. Top dmg is since I have to reapply my dots over and over in between void bolt spams in order to kill someone. The time it takes to kill with Lock is lame at times.

    Yeah, you can very easily get top damage as Warlock but it's all completely useless damage. DOTs are just way too weak.

    P.S. at least neddra's grasp hits hard when I cast it w/internalize charge up....after I've cast a flame bolt in the last 10 seconds....

    Lock has got to be one of the better PvP souls at the moment. Its survivability CD's are unmatched (hint, use searing vitality before using your CD's to prevent them being purged off), its DoT's allow you to dmg on the move. And you just need 31 pts in lock..... freeing 35 pts to be put anywhere else. 38 if you want defile. Only thing is the 51 pointer is garbage.

    In terms of raw firepower, it doesn't come close to pyro of course. However, I deal plenty of dmg while running a lock based spec. I may not always get the KB unfortunately, as I'm slowly chipping them to death (even rogues). Usually a huge hit from a pyro will finish of the guy just before my DoT's can kill him. The only problem I have is vs a dominator who knows how to use deny.

    And my DoT's hit rogues for100++.... unless they're CD's are activated... don't exaggerate.

    Warlock is useless? In PvP?

    It only has the 2 best defensive cd's of any mage build....opportunity procs...but

    to each his own
