Tales from the Darkside
Tales of the Darkside, I loved that show. Naming these posts as a little homage to that freaky show I grew up with, and then later a freaky movie. It was Twilight Zone/Outer Limits like, but a tad more freakier…..
Anyway so I decided to level up a Warlock to see what the hell all the hub bub was about, and to see exactly why Mages hate Warlocks. I know I might be shunned by my Mage Brethren, but you know what my Paladin is nearing 80, (turned 79), and I need another project. Tons of tokens means I’m going to get some BOA’s. I got enough BOA’s for several classes now. I also saw that really there aren’t that many Warlocks around anymore, and I am curious as to why.
I went with Orc, cause just the duality of a big burly cloth wearer intriques me. I may switch him to Goblin race once that is available.
Levels 1 to 5-
Usual beginning zone crap, nothing unusual, from my earlier Warlocks I tried I noticed that no more hard ass imp quest to get my demon, and you don’t have to train a demon anymore it appears. Sooo they made an easy class….real easy. Nice.
The Pimping –
Yea loaded up my Warlock – BOA staff/chest/shoulders – Enchanted where I could. Tons of Bags, and yea 400gold. My Lock has just been pimped!
Levels 5 to 10 -
This is where the Warlock really starts to get easy. I think I was taking out Harpies 3 levels higher then me with out breaking a sweat. I never ate or drank, just killed, and killed some more. Immolate>Corruption>Curse of Agony> Shadow Bolt x2 = Dead Mob. I don’t think I even Life Tapped that much.
To Do List -
Blueberry - I have to get my Blueberry now that I’m ten. I wonder if it’s still viable tactic to send Blueberry out, DOT UP the Mobs, and wand the shit out of things.
Spec - Is Affliction still the way to level? How is Demonology?
Professions – I was thinking Mining, and Jewelcrafting, or Herbing and Inscription. With the changes to Glyphs coming, don’t think Inscription is going to be as popular a money maker as it was.
Hit 20- Get my Flaming Horse!
By the way the Warlock movies weren’t half bad….ok they were so bad, they were almost good.
