WIth the OP heirloom gear, Spriest Dots are the easiest facerolling leveling that I have ever done. I'm sure a warlock in the fullon heirloom gear will be able to do the same thing.

Indeed, shadowpriest dots have HUGE base damage that helps a lot during leveling. We barely get any benefit from talents to them but they hit for considerably higher than affliction lock who get their dots boosted by 2x+ through talents vs +10% for a single dot for spriests.

This is also the reason why spriests were rocking DPS charts at beginning of both TBC and WotLK, our dots simply were doing great damage but gained relatively little from gear.


During leveling I would believe most mobs would die to VT+SWP+flay spam before they can reach you assuming you start out at max range. If you don't have VT yet then simply finish them off with MB/wand once they start beating on you.

Yup yup! I just hit 40 with my warlock this weekend who's sporting all the heirloom gear minus one trinket. It was pretty slow and boring up until around 20 or so but it really picks up the more talents in aff you get. Absurdly easy leveling and drain tanking makes you practically invincible against anything close to your level.

This is what I'm waiting for. I don't have the full heirloom setup yet, just the shoulders and chest, but I'm sure that with minor upgrades here and there by the time I'm 20, draintanking with the succubus will be quite easy.

Keep the blueberry until you can get felguard. The other two pets are nearly useless for leveling. At least with blueberry you can do semi-decent aoe pulls once every 2 minutes.

And with the blueberry you can tank lowbie instances. Before I killed my warlock, I had successfully blueberry tanked RFC, WC, BFD, and RFK. I deleted him when my paladin hit 60 and I wanted to focus on getting my paladin maxxed out and raiding.

I made a lock alt as well, I have the shoulders, chest and staff atm... i didn't even think to enchant the staff (duh)! Up to 22 now, and he's definitely steam-rolling through mobs. I'll have to try the blueberry tank through instances. But enjoying him so far. I have a mage at 71, but lost interest in leveling him and for now just use him for scribe/enchant. We'll see how far the lock makes it.

Do i win the nerd title?

Account1:
One full set of caster heirlooms
plate Chest+shoulders+MH sword+2h axe

account2:
plate shoulders+chest
dps mail shoulders+chest
dps leather shoulders+chest
2x daggers+sword+bow

Account3:
cloth chest+shoulders


I have some pvp heirlooms aswell but generally haven't bothered with them. I think we are tied for the title :P


Also, L2 rogue with shoulders+bow+2x daggers with 15 agi on them = fun.

I'm going to kind of hijack my own thread here and ask about the following scenario:

My wife's started playing (ohnoes!), and we're currently leveling RaF on Fizzcrank. I've taken a BE pally (currently specced prot), and she's running with an UD 'lock.

We were speccing her into the affliction tree, following advice on wowwiki... But further reading and testing shows that her curses do NOT help out any, as the mobs die too fast (ohai Reckoning + Sword of Omen!).

Does anyone have a decent Destro build for leveling? I'd kinda looked through some things, and came up with this: http://www.wowhead.com/?talent#I0xMZ0hZEchVR for level 43... But I don't know how viable that is.

Also, what kind of rotation/skills should she be using, with that build? Immolate/Corruption then spam SB? Arrrgggghhh!!!

Have her spam shadowbolt in whatever spec she wants. As you said stuff dies so fast that dot's won't really help. At L50 she might want to spec to felguard and get a "third" member to your little group. DPS is comparable or even higher than destro but survivability is significantly better. When she can start using incinerate it's quite nice spell aswell, especially with immolate ticking on the target. Only problem again is that it's a dot that might not be all that useful when stuff dies fast.
