    Warlocks aren't decent anymore since 1.6. Bugged DS was all they ever had :P

    People still play a mix of warlock and chloro.
    You just won't see many 51 warlock since the loss of DS was heavy.
    has twice as many ticks but each tick hits half as hard as they originally did and it has a 1s delay.

    a.k.a Useless.

    Oh wow i didnt know they nerfed the damage on it too. That sucks. I wish every soul was equally as good so we would have a lot of diversity in WFs. All i see now are Doms and Pyros. (Doms are OP)

    There is zero reason to play Warlock anymore. Devouring Shadows went from doing nearly 2k a tick to under 1k on top of losing it's instant damage component. I love Warlock, unfortunately every spec relying on it doesn't even compare to what Stormcaller and Pyromancer are capable of.

    I still use it every now and then to get people to scatter. When that conditioning wears off and they realize it now does crap damage, I'll probably take it off my bar.

    If they actually want to fix warlock...

    - revert the DS nerf because the spell is useless without the upfront damage and larger ticks
    - trigger a global cooldown after every tick to prevent the double tap exploit
    - nerf empowered darkness down to 50% or even 35% and lower charge consumption
    - increase warlock dot damage by 25% or more across the board

    Boom. Actually potent dot soul is actually potent.

    Warlock dot damage is already ridiculously high dude...

    The soul is fine. People are just flocking to the FotM.

    Yes, 2k Voidbolt spam on max value means fine.

    My DoT's tick for around 250 on max Valored targets at Rank 8, that doesn't seem ridiculously high. Especially when you compare it to the ridiculous burst of other Mage souls, which have become FotM for a reason... they're better.

    Thats better than the reaver 70 damage a tick. 250 a tick is quick good considering all the defensive capabilities of the warlock class and the fact that it pairs nicely with almost any other spec.

    Eh?

    I'm nearing max gear and my dots tick for like mid 200s. That, for a 1.5 sec gcd? Pathetic output compared to pyro/dom and sc. In the time it takes me to stack all my lock dots and start void bolting, my other pvp specs have killed one and a half people.

    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.
