Dark Elf Warlock Class Build (PvP/Group PvP)
The Warlock specializes in dealing out some massive aoe damage and crippling opponents. This build gives you a few hit points but mostly magic attack power. Its important for a Warlock to keep mobs and opponents away from them or you will die quickly.
Stat Build: This build has a little bit of points in VIT but most of it is distributed into intellegence for maximum magic attack power. You will have trouble with your mana bar with the low psyche points.
PvE: Soloing with the Warlock is fairly easy as long as you don’t have to cast too many skills to kill the mob and can do most of the work with your basic ranged attack. You have some devastating spells for damage but at a high cost and your mana bar will deplete very quickly. Mana Coil will help you out alot but with a 15 second cool down you must use your skills sparingly when waiting for the skill and pot cool downs. You will have alot of success when partying in high level mob grinds as you will be counted on to provide most of the damage and killing for the party. At early levels it will be really tough to dungeon grind as your first aoes don’t do alot of damage but will do enough to get aggros from them. You will find that you will be dying alot without a Healer looking out for you. At later levels you will be the focus point in dungeon grinding and will excel there. You have access to Rise Root, Pollution Mind, and Magic Push. Pollution Mind is a poweful DoT AoE and Rise Root which stuns your opponents and mobs so that other party members can slash away. If you are getting mobbed bad in a dungeon with your aggro you can cast Magic Push followed by Rise Root and you will be okay.
PvP: Warlocks are very good in pvp but their downfall is low mana pool. You can cause some devastating damage but must do so quickly as your mana goes fast with the spamming of those skills. You have a couple good spells to cast so stun and root your opponents using Cold Wave and Rise Root. You can push away melee classes away with Magic Push which is very useful in 1v1 pvp There are so many pvp options available in this build. Broken bag and Broken Treasure can cripple your enemies mobility and disable their equipment bonuses. Using Snatch and Ability Drain are also extremely effective. What makes this build a PvPing machine is also its downfall. Your mana pool is your own worst enemy so kill em fast! Warlock will also excel in group pvp focusing mainly on Magic Push and Riseroot to push away enemies and leave them stuck in their tracks.
