My little warlock, Lilac, is getting up there. I almost hit 50 this weekend (would have too except that a migraine sent me to bed). Instead I got to 49.5. Tourguide has done me good. In the late 30′s it had me pickup [Nifty Stopwatch]. Tatia never got that. In my late 40s it had me complete the sprite Darter questline. Horray for nifty pets. That (as an added bonus) flutter around at shoulder height on a gnome. I think I will name her “Spiffy”
I think that somehow I missed it when I trained in Deathcoil. I was reminded yesterday that I should have picked it up in my 40′s.. but I don’t have it bound to a key. I’ll have to go back over my spell book and pull it out to a key. I know I haven’t used it yet.. and supposedly I got it at 42.. hrm.
Killing has become a little rote.. nearly every fight is Immolate, dot, dot, dot, dot, tap, tap, drain life, drain soul. Most of the time it works beautifully. They die and I’m at 80% life/mana. Lately though I’m constantly pulling aggro off my voidwalker. I understand that it’s to be expected (I’ve read about it in the forums).. but it’s a bit annoying. I don’t intend to be hit by the mob.. it ruins my durability and makes me end the fight at 80% health instead of 100% health. Being hit just makes me cranky.
I really hoped that when I bought the newest Torment book at 48 that the situation would improve.. but no, I’m still constantly dragging aggro off the void walker. I’m half tempted to change over to using my Succubus instead. If I’m going to drag aggro onto myself anyways.. she has higher DPS than the voidy.. So in theory the baddy would die faster.
I suppose that since she’s less durable that I should pull aggro onto myself.. then have her attack them from behind.. hrm.. don’t love that idea… It sounds like a squishy warlock getting squished instead of her minion.
Better idea: Succy attacks and draws initial aggro. Immolate, tap, dot, dot, dot, dot, tap, drain life. Somewhere in there the mob loses interest in her and starts attacking me. Drain life and then Drain soul at the end.
The drawback here is that both Succy and I will need to heal up after the fight.. and Succy can’t suck shadows. *sigh* You know if any of my demons was going to “suck shadows” I really would have expected it to be the demonic hussy.
Her skills; Seduction, Lesser Invisibility, Soothing Kiss and Lash of Pain are less helpful than voidy’s skills(Torment, Suffering, Consume Shadows and Sacrifice). If only voidy held aggro. I wonder if I can use scrolls on voidy and increase his threat.
