So late Tuesday afternoon, it finally happened. I reached my next major milestone on my journey to discover the ways of the Warlock. I finally hit level 70!

Gingerlei hits 70

Hooray for me! Looking back, I can honestly say that I’ve had a really good time leveling this character. I love this class and I’m really enjoying every minute of playing my little warlock. It’s to the point where I would almost rather give up raiding on my other toons to focus solely on leveling my Warlock. I must admit this is rather surprising for me since I have always considered myself in WoW to be a Boomkin before anything else. Now, realistically, I couldn’t give up raiding even if I wanted to. I’m the Raid Leader for my little 10 man guild and right now I’m in charge of training a bunch of new recruits and dragging them through ICC in the hopes of reforming a progression group for Cataclysm.

Don’t get me wrong, I still love my Druid. She has been my main for the entirety of my WoW career and may very well still be for Cata, but this whole Warlock thing is really giving me a reason to reconsider. I’ve been reading through a lot of the information coming out of the Beta and the PTR and I’m not digging what I’m seeing for Boomkins. I keep reminding myself that it’s still only Beta, and a lot could change between now and then, but the luster has come off a bit for me. Meanwhile, I’m absolutely loving the play style of Warlocks, specifically Affliction and the changes I’ve seen from the Beta have me even more excited about the class. If you’ve been through this type of thing before, I’d love to hear your story in the comments.

P.S. Seed of Corruption is the greatest spell ever! I can’t begin to describe the pure level of awesome this spell is and how giddy it makes me to seed spam my way to the top of the DPS meters on AOE trash pulls. Doing more damage than the rest of the group combined on trash is just pure freakin win!

  1. I love my Seed of Corruption. My favorite time to use it is the second phase of the Dark Knight fight in heroic ToC. With Metamophosis’ Immolate ability, and SoC spamming the Knight, I can usually slaughter his Army of the Dead ghouls easily. Altho, call my pestimestic, I keep expecting a nerf bat for SoC. Maybe with Cataclysm so close, they’re too busy with that to notice how overly awsome SoC is.

  2. I don’t see it happening. It has a cast timer and is very inefficient with less than 3 mobs. And in PvP if you leave a warlock alone long enough for it to be chain casting Seed, then you deserve what you get.

  3. Congratulations!! Here’s hoping you enjoy the next 10 levels even more… and, you know, turning to the Dark Side isn’t all that bad, really (although I have had a similar issue where I almost made my Druid my main, but I couldn’t leave the pewpewpew)

  4. Late grats! I’ve been leveling a warlock myself and it’s so much fun! I leveled as affliction until level 64 (she’s now level 69, woot!). Can’t wait to get her to level 80. :D
