World of Warcraft Warlock Guide
Many players make the mistake of avoiding
this class since it isn’t considered to be one that excels
at combat fighting, but in actuality, when played
correctly, this is a fearsome class that can do a lot of
damage. If you are interested in playing WoW a little bit
differently, this is definitely a class to try.
Although it is true that the Warlock is not necessarily a
class that is meant for hand to hand combat, they are
incredibly powerful. In the game lore, the Warlock is a class
that used to be a mage before turning to the dark side. They
use demons, pets and spells to inflict tremendous amounts of
damage. When you are playing this class, you’re going to want
to focus more on the skills of stalking your enemy, dealing out
damage over time and the favorite, good old fear tactics.

Once you’ve made the decision to give this class a shot,
you’re going to need to know some basics. First, the Warlock’s
pet is one of its best assets. These pets function for a
Warlock much like they do for a Hunter. They deal out close
range damage and tank (take damage) for their master. This
allows the Warlock to stand back away from the action, casting
spells, and avoiding harm.
If you like up close hand to hand combat, this is not a good
class for you. However, if you like more of a strategy based,
skilled method of playing the game, the Warlock will suit you
quite well. When you first start out, your Warlock won’t be all
that powerful, but as you level up, you will increase in skill
and experience. Once you are able to get a pet, the game will
really change in your favor.
Once you reach level 40, you’ll get your first mount and
this is the point that the game will really change in your
favor. Soon, you’ll be able to get your own epic mount through
questing, but the one you get at first is still incredibly
Tools of the Trade
Since the Warlock isn’t into hand to hand combat, your
weapons are going to be your spells. It is vital to remember
that once you cast a spell, you cannot move. If you do change
your position, the spell will fail and you will place yourself
The main resource for a Warlock is their mana. This is used
for a spell and will be depleted each time one is cast.
However, unlike any other character, the Warlock has the
ability to convert their HP into useable mana. This can make
quite a difference in the middle of a battle.
Picking a Profession
You’re not going to want to waste your time on professions
like blacksmithing, skinning or fishing. The best professions
for a Warlock are herbalism, enchanting and alchemy. Tailoring
is also a very good choice since you will need cloths for your
spell casting. It is a good idea to pick a very strong primary
profession that will be supported by a secondary
For example, you can combine mining and alchemy to save
money on the components that you’ll need for your spells. You
can also combine herbalism and alchemy to make not only potions
for yourself but others as well. This is probably the easiest
way for a Warlock to earn money quickly.
