I'm not happy with being a warlock these days. I don't like the change to destruction. If I had wanted to play with fire, I would have rolled a mage. Also, I'm not happy with the new affliction spec. The spell rotation is just wonkie and dps is low compared to destruction. I have found in my top tier guild, that what matters from a warlock is the bottom line, d.p.s. Yes, affliction adds utility. Yes, affliction does pretty good damage on it's own. Although my guild will construct a raid for synergy and needs on a per boss basis, they bring in the hardest hitters and affliction just isn't going to be that. I can discuss numbers but in the end, I'm just feeling discontent with my class at this moment. Anyone else out there in the same place I am?
