So, my warlock Fiorentin dinged 20 and got her Succubus quest done and now has a succubus!
The first thing that I saw and made me go “NOES!” was that I didn’t have Seduce. I want seduce, give me seduce! NOAW!
The other problem I was faced with that after dominating lowbies in WSG at level 18 and 19, I’d be at the bottom of the foodchain again. A level 20 warlock versus level 29 say hunters has no survival chances at all. So basically both of my warlocks are dangling at the bottom (Nuriko still being level 12) and I’m largely dependant on other people to drag me through it all.
Something that did delight me was the fact that I can now join AB. Even tho I am getting raped on every possible location, it’s why being a level 20 sucks no?
A solution to getting owned I found in my voidwalker. Sacrifice is a delightful ability, and will give me a bit more survival chances. That being said, level 29 folk still hurt… A lot… A whole damn lot. I miss the fact that I don’t have any higher rank lifedrain or corruption yet, so I’m still ticking 13 of someone with 800 health (leveling gear ftl :<). So largely I”m dependant on others to drag me through it all. Not that I’m not having fun, it’s just not as fun.
I’ll be looking forward to spending most of my time like this on both my chars untill I reach the *7-*9 level brackets:
Also notice the comment from the hunter on rogue damage He got attacked by one and instead of sticking to the rest he ran away, telling us we let him die, to which I replied he shouldn’t have run. After that he complained about rogues doing sick damag (as hunter, complaining about rogues while you’re the most OP class in the 10-19 bracket -.-), to which I replied: they tend to do that… God that was a lovely BG, even tho I was dead most of the times.
Will keep you updated! Now I’m just lying around dead ^^
When I step into the lowbie WSG on Fiorentin I always get this little kick of excitement. I know I will be melting faces, fearing, life draining and dotting people up. That is what a warlock is supposed to do right?
Usually just before the battle everyone buffs up, I summon my imp (imp > voidwalker, seriously… I found that out the hard way -.-) and hope to get 400 health. Due to my warlock not having level gear or any other nice gear my health is quite low. However I did get the WSG ring and staff so that makes me a happy lock
Anyway back to the start of the fight. Most of the times you run as a group over the graveyard and down into the midfield. No mounts, only classes that can cheat (druids, hunters, rogues, shamans) on speed and you really do feel like an army of soldiers ready to battle the enemy.
When you see the Silverwing Sentinels running, your job, your only job as lowbie warlock is to do them all up. All of them. Dot, Dot, Dot, Dot! Make them all burn with your shadowy goodness. Let them die a slow and painful death. It doesn’t matter if you get killed in the process, as long as you dot them all up. When you get the time, lifedrain one to keep yourself up to par and to be able to lifetap. Other than that just run around dotting. When you see a flag carrier, run at it, dot it, fear it, rinse and repeat. Your only job is to maim that lowbie level 15 flagcarriers face. And possible every other player in the BG.
As lowbie warlock it’s wise if you stick with the group, especially if you have no leveling gear or any other statboosting gear. Sticking with the group means you don’t stand out and will not get picked out by an overpowered level 12 hunter and damn they are stupidly OP. It also means that they are forced to spread their attention, giving YOU more time to tab and dot. Nothing more fun than a group in chaos while you laugh at your dots slowly eating away their HP. There is no running away far enough to mount in lowbie WSG, you can follow them around eternally, dotting them, lifedraining them, untill they die.
The only silly position I find myself often in is that everyone around me is dead, and then you’re an open target. And even tho some people might only be level 13, they hit hard. Especially as paladins with leveling gear… Or hunters with leveling gear… Or well anything that is physical damage with leveling gear. Pallies hit me: warlock goes SQUISH! One of the only disadvantages up till now in lowbie WSG. I’m still enjoying myself tho. Melting faces, inciting fear, and all without the use of a mount! And watching people run away dieing to your dots is the biggest satisfaction there is… Even on lvl 17.
When I started a char on Argent Dawn-EU for the Single Abstract Noun guild I chose a Warlock. Simply due to the fact that I had just read Cynwise’s post about Draintanking and wanted to try it out myself.
Now my little warlock Fiorentin is level 17, has almost 700 honorable kills and is terrorizing lowbie WSG. I enjoy playing a warlock in PvP so much (I feel so evil fearing and dotting people up and watch them die while I do an evil laugh) that I decided to start another warlock on my home server Vashj-EU. This one is a female human (since I didn’t have any anymore after faction changing my warrior) and goes by the name Nuriko. She is level 10 and already has more than 100 honorable kills on her name.
In this series of posts which will be called Reign of Terror I’ll fill you in on how I pretend to be all pro and evil in lowbie battlegrounds on both a horde and an alliance warlock. I hope you will enjoy the series. The first post is coming up this afternoon when I get home!
