It didn’t take long to get from Thunder Bluff to the Echo Isles – Ankona took advantage of a wyvern so she could think and plan before getting to her destination. She had information to confirm with the spirits – was Gromnor dead? Was he really in the northern part of the Eastern Kingdoms, somewhere […]

I have a little warlock

I have a little warlock,
She’s pretty fun to play,
And when she’s feeling evil,
We DoT things up all day!


Amazing art by Loreli, of course. (I can’t explain how much I love this portrait. There is so much personality in it! Lore does commissions (of which this is one) and they’re worth every penny.

Right now I’m not playing a whole lot, but my attachment to my warlock is growing steadily. She’s a little bit evil, and that’s made her encounters with the largely sub-human populations of Ferelas (ogre, gnoll) highly entertaining. We’ve moved on though, and now we’re killing pirates in what used to be the Shimmering Flats.

Oddly, while there are some aspects of the quest layouts that bug me, the general levity and silliness is really suited well to Ancelyn. I’m not always a fan of rampant silliness on other characters – Aely and Angoleth are both more serious when they’re out “working”, and only really silly when they’re at rest/play. Ancelyn’s biggest motivation is “does this amuse me”, so she finds and enjoys all kinds of silliness as long as she’s the one doing the burninating.

I’ve kept up with Cynwise’s posts about warlocks in Cataclysm, and he has some really good points. There are definitely issues with the class design and it’s occasionally quite boring as Affliction (dot, dot, wand, wand, rinse, repeat).

But it’s also highly effective, (especially with how easy it is to overlevel the content) and she takes on elites pretty handily, so it’s kind of a wash. I definitely can see the complexity getting me in over my head once I start groups with her, but I am having a lot of fun doing the other half of the new content, so I’m not grouping much right now. (Annata leveled through the Eastern Kingdoms, so Ancelyn is doing Kalimdor, at least from Ferelas upward.)

Now all I need is to get her into some RP! And maybe find her some really warlocky outfits. She is a former (now excommunicated…) Dark Iron. She should look the part!

  1. “And maybe find her some really warlocky outfits. She is a former (now excommunicated…) Dark Iron. She should look the part!”
    If you like using addons, then Mogit and its extras are a dream for outfit finding and gathering. Best thing after Transmog itself. I’ve been using it to find outfits for all of my alts that really fit their personalities. My BE pally has a lovely red and gold outfit with Hyperion as a base, and some darker red (belt) or more gold (shoulders) items thrown in. The Draenei hunter went for black, since that is her theme in pets as well.
    For cloth you also have to choose if you want dresses/robes or shirts, since that can limit your options for certain colours. I could get a purple outfit for my Shadow priest with a shirt (worgen who hates getting her claws stuck in the hem of a dress), and my draenei mage has a perfect frosty look both with a dress (city outfit) and with a shirt (adventuring gear, you try swimming in a dress), but getting a nice fire red outfit is a nightmare. She’s is a tailor with a love for jewelry, so that leaves out a lot of the more “ragged” looking options. Having already done all of the Outlands quests doesn’t help either, since she can no longer get the cloth questrewards.

  2. I found a robe while questing – the Robe of the Thousand Needles – that I think will work nicely for a warlocky outfit for now. She’s fun to dress up because things look different on a dwarf!
