    The only time I use dots is when I'm running an actual attrition spec like necro/lock, and even that's more about soul purge and essence link + pet.

    Guess I just disagree.
    well, you can go 51 warlock for huge void bolt hits or defile-lock/25pyro for 1s gcd. I tried both and I much prefer sc/pyro/am.

    the dots are really pathetic on warlock without ED up. and no heal debuff. even warriors would complain if they were to play a warlock in 1.6.

    also to the thread, DS is about useless now.

    They can't double-tap anymore, so they're back on their MM rogues.

    A certain 38 warlock is still one of the more powerful pvp builds out there, and I even use DS now and then when there are a pack of 8+ in a small space, but generally it is useless.

    51/15 WL/AM still kicks *** single target, as does 45/21 I personally don't have these on my current rotation of souls because I don't have room and I'm pushing the limits of the 38WL build.

    They did overnerf DS though.

    You must be doing something wrong because my defile lock/25 pyro owns sc/pyro/am in every which way possible in a WF or open world. Usually top dps, top KBs and marked by the enemy team. I'm making a video which shows some of the crazy **** this build can do.

    Well you lot (the community) moaned and whinged enough to get the class ability nerfed to beyond useless and because Trion don't do things in half measures rather than adding a CD to DS and reducing the damage buff of ED they completely gutted devouring shadows making it not worth a cast. WELL DONE YOU LOT.

    I foresee this great community doing the same to Pyro / Dominator & Chloro, why? Because this community likes things handed to them on a plate, if a soul combo is effective when played well you lot scream for nerfs and this community seems to have it stuck in their heads that mages are not supposed to be good at dps.

    I am already seeing threads about getting Dominator nerfed, because Storm Shackle is OP, Traitorous is OP, well here's some tips, DON'T keep running at me when shackled, DON'T spam your abilities when Traitorous is on you, LEARN TO PLAY instead of calling for nerfs at every opportunity OR more than likely you'd like this game to keep heading the way it is heading i.e. Rouge-pocalypse.

    Yeah they could have just slapped a -20% nerf on it.

    I find Dom is more punishing when in PuGs than in premades.
    In pre-mades, I find they handle it alot better since they are much more coordinated.

    I rarely got hit by devouring shadows before the nerf. So really, not much of a change.

    Sc/pyro & pyro/dom have more burst. By far.

    I'm glad you found something you liked, but don't mislead people.

    I never said this spec out bursts the sc/pyro pyro/dom but it does out dps them and has a hell of a lot more survive-ability. No misleading people, Lock can still own if you know how.

    That would be because you killed me too quick to notice. Mind you I came up against you on my r2 mage.

    Love watching you play, or should I say ... own face.

    Uhhh, how does it out DPS them when sc/pyro and pyro/dom out bursts them?
    Keep in mind what matters in PvP is burst rather than sustained DPS.

    Lock is meh now.
    Devouring shadows really helped to make it a threat and output damage that normally required SC.

    To be hoenst considering the behavior of the community, the mages won't have anything to use.

    Chloro healing is poor in WF's due t valor mitigation.
    Constant calls for Dom soul to be nerfed.
    Calls for pyro soul to be nerfed.
    Calls for SC to be nerfed.
    Warlock got the **** already.
    ELementalist is LoL in WF's.
    Necromancer is meh in WF's.
    Archmage is somewhat gimmicky but better than the other PvP souls.
