"I'm an evil mage" and destruction Warlocks Edit
This article and other warlock descriptions seem to compete on this. the destruction talent descriptions seem to suggest that warlocks specced along those lines should use a lot of direct damage spells, and it makes sense this way just reading the talents, but the "avoid the 'I'm an evil mage' section argues against this playstyle.
I'll rewrite the "I'm an evil mage" slightly, to include what seem to be the playing styles useful for destruction vs. other types of warlocks, and it does seem to be useful for mana effeciency suggestions, but it does seem something for more experienced warlocks, or just other warlocks in general to improve on.Minionman 20:35, 30 January 2008 (UTC)
- Excellent. It does give me that impression as well. In fact, most of the article needs a revamp. While you're doing that one section, you may want to look at making the article read more intuitively, and with more attention to the differences between specialisations. Thanks a bunch! -- 03:16, 31 January 2008 (UTC)
- It's a rather subtle distinction, to be sure. I think the major reason for reinforcing the fact that warlocks are not mages has to do with the number of direct damage spells available to a warlock, their relative damage output, and mana efficiency. I started re-working the article for readability, but my machine crashed halfway through, so only the first section or two actually got updated. I'll do some more work on it soon.
