Blood Pact: How to trounce through Firelands as a warlock


Every week, WoW Insider brings you [hide]Blood Pact[/hide] for [hide]affliction[/hide], [hide]demonology[/hide] and [hide]destruction[/hide] warlocks. For those who disdain the watered-down arts that other cling to like a safety blanket … For those willing to test their wills against the nether and claim the power that is their right … [hide]Blood Pact[/hide] welcomes you.

Being relatively newish to writing Blood Pact, I’m not sure if I’ve yet said this. On the off chance that I have, well, then it at least bears repeating: I am a raider. What I do, what I care about, is going into the most relevant content and kicking butt. Not only am I a raider, but I raid as a DPSer. Though my main might be a hybrid-capable for healing or tanking, I have absolutely no interest in either of those concepts. There’s a reason that the first four alts that I pushed to level 85 were the pure classes.

That being said, even I know that damage cannot be — is not — everything. The tired phrase that dead DPS is zero DPS certainly holds true. More so than that, very encounters are even about raw damage potential, anyway. Although Firelands is a lot less gimmick-based than tier 11 raids were, nearly every boss encounter is going to require some non-DPS related task that has a much higher chance of wiping the raid than anything else. Are you prepared to deal with every situation? Let’s find out.[hide]Continue reading Blood Pact: How to trounce through Firelands as a warlock[/hide]Filed under: [hide]Warlock[/hide], [hide](Warlock) Blood Pact[/hide][hide]Blood Pact: How to trounce through Firelands as a warlock[/hide] originally appeared on [hide]WoW Insider[/hide] on Mon, 18 Jul 2011 14:00:00 EST.
