Mana This Game Ain't Big Enough

I know I'm not the only Warlock (okay, ex-Warlock) who thinks Demon Hunters are a bad idea.

WoW was clearly designed with the intention of Warlocks being the true heir to the WCIII Demon Hunter legacy. We've got the using-demon-energy-to-fight-demons shtick, we've got immolate, we've got fucking metamorphosis.

So what the fuck do these knife-ear motherfuckers think they're doing, coming onto our turf, stealing our jobs? Where does that leave us? Are we going to have to share our spells with these guys? Or worse, are we going to have to cede spells to these guys? Or worst of all, are we going to be ABOLISHED FROM THE GAME???

How the hell does Blizzard think Demon Hunters and Warlocks are going to coexist, unless the new Demon Hunters are nothing like the ones we knew in WCIII?

You lose Metamorphosis. That's all.

Why is there not more outrage over this?!

Even though I'm a Demonology warlock, I've been starting to find Metamorphosis mechanics to be steadily more annoying; I don't think they'd just rip out a main feature of a preexisting specialization, but I'm not really worried.

Just remember that we're the only ones who can summon demons; our main class feature is going to be safe.

Remember when warlocks had Death Coil?


Hero Classes are like Prestige Classes. They get the cool guilds and tie-ins, we get the continued relevance and general applicability.

People will still want to bring us for end game content because we bring fel rocks, and we're ranged, and we're the least played class meaning more teams desire having us in their group.

Demon Hunter is just gonna be as overplayed as DK's were during Wrath.

And yes, I actually agree with Xil on this (*cleans himself*), Meta form for Demo is really annoying to use.

Also this is the best description that establishes their differences...

Quote:
Thematically they are actually very different.

Warlocks exist on the fringes of society, doing whatever they can to gain secret knowledge and power.

Demons Hunters would be the guys who run around going "I"M USING FIRE AS A TOY AND IT'S SO DARN EFFECTIVE LOOK AT HOW AWESOME I AM I'M WAY BETTER THAN YOU HEY LOOK HANDCUFFS!"

Warlocks should never have gotten those abilities to begin with. They were clearly shoved into them because they were cool and they didn't want to see them gone to waste.

Or seen in another way, they were lazy and didn't bother giving warlock more unique stuff.

It's time to do what true locks do, go incinerate and immolate.

Demonology is for the weak.

A true warlock uses fel fire incineration.

I like this guy. Also, green fire looks better if you actually use it.

I'm definitely prepared to see Varian die for good this time.
That would make me sooo happy

You may fire when ready, once you witness the eye power of a fully armed and operational demon hunter...

The trick, warlocks, was to eat lots of carrots.
