The holiday hangout will go online tomorrow! If there's anything in the regular subforums that you're going to want to access over the holidays, copy it now while it's still accessible.
Don't like the snow? You can make a bookmark with the following text instead of a url: javascript:snowStorm.toggleSnow(). Clicking it will toggle the snow on and off.
Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

    I hope later today we can get a blue post or two about the stuff that has been happening in Beta. I Need To Know if Tanklocks are going to be a real thing.

    What's a "tanklock"? I don't like the sound of that.

  • BaronSamediBaronSamedi Registered User regular


    looks like it may be something that Blizz may allow in MoP. I hope it's "working as intended" and not an "oh shit, better fix that quick."

    Oh, tanking warlock. I thought it was a raid mechanic where the tank gets locked and everyone has to do without him for a while.

  • godmodegodmode Nooo-ooo-ooo... That ain't dancin', SallyRegistered User regular
    I don't see it happening. Remember when shamans were supposed to be able to tank?

    Just gonna be plate-wearers and druids, MAYBE monks. I don't see a clothy being able to do that.

  • BaronSamediBaronSamedi Registered User regular
    I don't either. But dammit godmode, let me dream.

    Disappointment feeds my ability to play the emo-dressup doll that is the warlock.

    Sorry :P

    Though, it would be pretty cool if they gave Locks more utility.

    I think they're toying with the idea. The form is a stance and it has the whole "armor increase and crit immunity" so yeh you might have warlock tanks.

    And the Scorpid Poison bug on Scorpid pets. You would pop all your cooldowns and BW and send in the little bugger. The DOT stayed high as long as it was constantly refreshed.

    Wouldn't be the first time beta and release had different design intentions, sure. Not like Warlocks have never been caster tanks for certain raid bosses before.

    I don't see why Metamorphosis wouldn't just be a shapeshift (like bears) if that's the design intent though. A tank misusing their resources and popping out as a cloth caster seems like a pretty hardcore punishment.

  • That Dave FellaThat Dave Fella Registered User regular
    Yeh I haven't tried it myself but I think it stays as a form now and the resource is like rage or whatever and you don't pop out.

    I'll give it a shot later on.

    Supposedly there's a glyph that makes it permanent and gives you like 500% more threat.

    yeah the glyph also turns soulshatter into a taunt instead of a thread dump

    warlock tanks are A Thing now

    im not sure if eventually they will be able to raid tank but right now they are more than capable of tanking heroics

    im concerned about how ridiculous lock tanks will be in pvp considering they have full access to all their cc/utility still

    My friends and I are already planning on having a Warlock Tank for our Raid Team. I haven't seen anything that would make them not capable of Tanking raids. They won't be able to Dodge or Parry, but their damage mitigation will be astronomical, so they will take very consistent damage. The tough part will be whether or not they will have as much Stamina on their gear as the other Tanks will be getting on their Tank gear.

    they'll probably have bear like talents to solve this problem.

    Why are monks "maybe" tanks? Don't they have a tank tree.

  • YukiraYukira My watch is stopped on Jump Time.Registered User regular
    Weren't Death Knights "maybe" tanks until people got used to them?

    monks will be primarily evasion tanks with poor actual mitigation

    At the beginning of Wrath, Death Knights were an unknown and avoidance based. It didn't help that there wasn't a defined tanking tree.

    I'm still baffled as to why Enhancement has tanking tools and isn't at least getting a semi-viable talking setup.

    I've had a taunt and a threat-boosting weapon enchant for all of Cataclysm so far and nothing to show for it.

    Well apparently Warlock tanks are OP as hell right now in the beta. Cause here is a level 85 Warlock Tank soloing Morchok.



    In other news, I got into a PuG DS Raid on Sunday. Arms'd it up for most of the fights and off-tanked Ultraxxion and Blackhorn. Went smooth, was a pleasant experience for my first PuG raid on Cho'gall. I did however message someone on my Priest to heal a 10DS, and they declined me because the only gear my priest can use comes out of DS Normal modes. Good times, gotta have the gear out of a dungeon to run the dungeon, despite it being nerfed by 10%.

    Void Tendrils (Talented Spell, Tier 1)
    Instant cast. 30 Second Cooldown
    Summons shadowy tendrils out of the ground, rooting all targets within 8 yards for 20 seconds. Killing the tendril will cancel the effect.

    The amount of mobility Priests are getting plus this aoe snare has me excited to PvP again.

    the second "half" of the damage that gets shuffled by stagger is mitigated quite a bit though and that goes up with mastery!

    Half of me wishes frost was the tank spec, but the other half is glad blood is.

    Self healing abilities are cool

    Despite myself I am getting a little hyped for MoP

    Not as much as Cataclysm but it is lookin' neat

    I might do the annual thing for free Diablo
