Affliction Warlocks and You! Part One

Today’s blog is going to be about warlocks and how to play them as affliction. So having recently dinged my sexy gnome lock 80, I went about the fun task of both gearing him and fine-tuning his spec for optimal dps. I have been affliction on him since vanilla WoW and throughout BC, I decided to keep him as affliction with some points in destro.

After reading through a few blogs and forum posts about warlock dps I came up with a list of things I needed to do to make my lock the ultimate lock badass. This is the list:

1. Get hit capped
2. Up my spell power
3. Get a good dot timer
4. Check which glyphs are better at 80 then what I currently have for leveling.
5. Replace my mix of crappy quest greens and sub 80 instance gear with the new sexy triumph gear.
6. Prioritize the list of instances I need to farm for non badge gear(weapons, trinkets, etc)
7. Work out a good spell rotation

It's begun!

So I was talking to one of my officers about something and it got brought up that I should start a blog about WoW since I have both been playing for over four years and have led our guild that whole time. Now in that time I've both done and seen a lot of things. Some of these fun times have been seeing the ZG plague wreck havoc in IF, kiting Doom Lord Kazzak into SW, surviving the lag of the AQ opening event, replacing all my hard won tier gear with greens from trash mobs in hellfire penninsula, discovering how easy having a flying mount made questing, clearing kara for the first time, zerging Sarth10+3 for the nightfall title, and getting almost 100 vanity pets on my mage.(yes I am totally proud of that one)

And those are just a few of the memories off the top of my head that I think of when I look back on how long I've been playing WoW. I think I will write on random stuff that pops into my head i.e. opinions on new changes to the game, how to play as a class guides, random rants about loot, etc. It will be fun times...hopefully. At the very least it'll give me something to do while I'm busy not paying attention in class.

Not sure how many people will even read this blog but honestly...I have that much downtime inbetween classes somedays.
