The 10 steps of Illidan rehab program for wayward locks is not an easy program to survive.

Occasionally a Lock will revert to their soul stealing ways.

They have been known to fight back occasionally at the kind caring Mages (and others) delivering the rehab treatment.

  • Sometimes it’s with extreme violence such as Murder a Mage campaigns
  • Sometimes it’s candy coating (Mmmm Lock Candy) their backhanded compliments.
  • Once in a while we find they have smuggled a soulstone into the clinic and stashed it in their mattress.

Now while the Locks may react violently, lashing out at their carers, we at the Dalaran Rehab Clinic for Lost Souls believe that intervention is the best policy.

Experience has shown that a Lock with a soul stone does not treat death as permanent, so summary execution is often not the best way.

Restraining them for 10 seconds, giving them the chance to appreciate the Pyroblasts charging before their little piggy eyes, provides the opportunity to talk some sense into them.

So while some Locks are awarding prizes for trophy Mage kill shots, we here at the clinic are looking for examples of extreme restraint under extreme felfire.

Here is what I want…

  1. A screenshot of you subduing a Lock through the age old art of Polymorph (or other class CC… Bonus points for Locks subduing Locks)
    Who doesn’t want a cute bunny lock with their cute felpuppy?

    Or

  2. Your 10 steps of Illidan rehab program.

The winners (yes, I know we are all winners) will receive a loot card code (yes it’s true – I am giving something away and it isn’t stolen!)

Not just one, but 2 loot cards!

The prizes: (more…)

So I got asked this question the other day in a comment.

I have to assume that it’s a serious question as this is a serious blog… right?

So I’m going to give you my Magely view on what a Warlock is, and all being well, we might get a response from my Nymesis, a warlock that’s done his time in rehab, seen the light and run screaming at it.

What a Warlock is NOT.

They are not Mages!

They are jealous individuals without a natural affinity to magic. Think of your little brother that can’t do math, therefore doesn’t get your parents praise, doesn’t get the teachers praise and definitely doesn’t win any awards for arithmetic.

If only I could be powerful and love like Gnomeaggedon!

But that doesn’t happen. Scorned by family and friends, ignored by the family pet, shunned by even apprentice Mage trainers, they are shallow, hollow, wannabes.

They are not Hunters!

Physically weak, they don’t have the stamina to take a few punches while delivering a wingclip. Not strong enough to pull a bow, or cock a rifle. They aren’t even dexterous enough to dual wield.

Did I mention they are ignored by the family pet? Yeah, not even sooty the cat, singed during their magely siblings toddler experiments will willingly associate with a Warlock (more…)

Keep up the awesome posts man.

Warlock (Forums / Talent Calculator)

•Shadow Embrace: Now stacks 3 times (Up from 2) Healing reduction effect reduced to 2/4/8/10% (Down from 3/6/9/12/15%)

Demonology

I been sitting on that for a few days… needless to say I was somewhat gobsmacked… I’m been walking around the house now for days in a kind of stupor…

It’s good to know my readers care enough to taunt me… My Warlock readers no less…

Of course there has to be some good new in the patch notes…

PvP

  • All healing abilities (including items such as potions) will be decreased in effectiveness by 10% when in Battlegrounds, Arenas, or Wintergrasp.

Umm yeah… OK, maybe not…

Ohh hang on… what’s this?

Mage:

  • Working as intended
  • Will still deliver Warlock’s Imps on a platter!

Gnomer and Out, Squidly and Stout! (more…)

There is an unwritten rule of Mage v. Lock relations.

Hate the other publicly, envy them privately.

OK, maybe not so unwritten.

OK, maybe it’s written nearly everywhere on every Mage and Lock blog, forum, guild website plus many more.

Well, the hate bit anyway, I guess I can’t really speak for other Mages, but I don’t hate Locks.

Fear them a little yes, but hate them… Not even a little.

Of course the days of the Burning Crusade are long gone (more…)

So the bastard sons and daughters will be acknowledged by their father in patch 3.2.

Now of course for many years now many players have considered twinkers bastards, especially when they enter battlegrounds with their stock standard toons for a bit of fun to break up the leveling grind.

I had a quick look through the patch notes this morning and noted that coming in patch 3.2 is the ability to stop earning XP.

This is awesome news on a whole lot of different levels, so let’s cover some of them (more…)

Gnomish Taxi Cab Co.


I have a dream…

I can sit online for hours per day just chatting to mates and making money.

Ok, so I have two dreams.

Sitting online hours per day, chatting to mates and making money, and…

Becoming the CGO (Chief Gnomish Officer) of my own transport company.

I would call it.. (more…)

Twinking your level 19 Warlock: 3.1 update

<< Part 6. Heirloom Items

OK, so really there is no update.
The Lock twinking guides have really taken a big back seat for me, and it is unlikley that I will be doing any updates in the near future.

Just so you aren’t left high & dry, here are a few useful links.

A couple from Hydra @ Almost Evil

And a couple from probably the best Twink writer (Drayner) and site around, TwinkInfo

A couple of related posts from WoWInsider:

On a final note, I did ask a while back if someone wanted to help update my guides… Know your Twinks? Want to write about it? The offer still stands as I wont be getting around to it for a while.

Anyway..
