I just wet my warlock.

Some of today's Q&A highlights.  Finally some love for the best class.

[blizzard]While the new Warlock resources are still in-development, here's the current iteration: When you incinerate an immolated target, your character builds up Infernal Embers. Infernal Embers increase the power of your next single Conflagrate or Soul Fire by 10% each. That ability uses all of the embers you have. There may also be additional abilities which generate or consume Infernal Embers, but we're still experimenting. Here's a little bonus: as you generate more and more embers, your character slowly ignites, until you're basically a walking torch. Infernal Embers currently have no cap, but we'll likely add one before Mists ships.[/blizzard]

[blizzard]Malefic Grasp replaces Shadow Bolt for Affliction. It is a channelled nuke which increases the damage of your DoTs on the target by increasing their tick rate by 100%.[/blizzard]

[blizzard]Yes, we plan to eliminate Pet Twisting for Demonology. Step 1 - replace Soul Shards. Step 2 - fix Demon Soul. One popular idea has been to give each spec a different version of Demon Soul. However, we haven't finalized that idea. We'd love to see some discussion about this on the Warlock forums.[/blizzard]

[blizzard]We feel internally that Affliction is one of the best feeling specs in the game. While not planning any major changes, internally, we've implemented a system that allows you to refresh Corruption, UA or Bane of Agony up to 6 seconds before the DoT falls off without clipping any ticks.[/blizzard]

[blizzard]All Warlocks get Shadow Bolt at level 1. Then Shadow Bolt will transform around level 40 based on your spec. Affliction: Malefic Grasp, Demonology: (in Meta) Demonic Slash, Destruction: Incinerate.[/blizzard]

Affliction is so fun, and my biggest complaint with dot classes is the concept of clipping so that is a huge boon. Good shit.

I'm SUPER stoked for malific grasp, it's like the DL filler that people like, but makes aff more aff by buffing dots

Absolutely.  Mind Flay is an awesome filler for Shadow and it makes the spec feel more fluid.  This seems like it'll offer the same sort of flow.

I missed this:

[blizzard]Soulburn has a 15 second cooldown, but each ability can only be soulburned once a minute. New Soulburn abilities such as Soulburn: Curse - your Curses apply to all targets within Y yards of the target, will be added.[/blizzard]

Still seems a little awkward, but much more flexible.
