Pre 2.1: Most Popular Builds - Warlock

1,712 Warlocks. Another class with high diversity in builds:

  1. 11 characters: 7/43/11 - Heavy Demonology with enough Destruction to get Shadowburn and Affliction to get 2/2 Improved Lifetap.
  2. 8 characters: 7/7/47 - Same smattering of Affliction, 2/2 Improved Healthstone and 5/5 Demonic Embrace from Demonology, then all the way up Destruction (thanks Ino) to get Shadowfury.
  3. 8 characters: 6/44/11 - Variant on 1. Drop Improved Lifetap to 1/2 in order to get 1/3 Mana Feed from Demonology.
  4. 8 characters: 5/41/15 - Ditch Improved Lifetap, strip Demonology to just enough to get your Felguard, Then throw the rest in Devastation for critical goodness.
  5. 8 characters: 0/40/21 - Sacrifice the Felguard in order to get up to Ruin.

43/1,712 for 2.5% representation. One more class, coming up!

you says in the second spec that you go all the way up "affliction" to get shadowfury. wrong, it's destruction. hurray =D

also, i'm surprised that there's no popular affliction build. <.<

Fixed. Thanks Ino, I was in a hurry.

In the end, I think the sample size is way too small, and I think the data is badly skewed because it came from only a few servers. Granted it came from a battlegroup so in theory there should be a mix of PvE and PvP-oriented builds, but until I finish the Great Import and start running the numbers, I won't know much more.
