When it comes to coverage of major changes to World of Warcraft, you can't beat Massively's sister site WoW Insider, right? There are many talented folks commenting on the realm of Azeroth across sites around the internets. The snarky stylings of AFK Gamer's Foton is one of my personal favorites. He has a few things to say about the recent news of changes to the Warlock class.
Along with commenting on the woeful lack of long-haul healers in the game right now, he is pretty upfront about the effect the potential Life Tap nerf would have had on 'locks. The whole issue of nerfing locks in Patch 2.4 is tainted by accusations of developer favoritism, accusation Foton understandably shrugs off - but not without a comment or two.
His comments are especially interesting given that the Life Tap nerf has been rolled back on the Test Realms. To assuage the poor traumatized Warlocks, Blizzard's Kalgan is even hinting at possible new toys the class could enjoy in the Wrath of the Lich King expansion. As much as I appreciate the 'locks on my side in Battlegrounds ... is it hard for anyone else to weep for their 'pain'?
