Warlock CC tidbit!


Warlocks do it thru their Succubus’ Seduce spell.  Sure there are macros out there like this one from DrainingSouls.net.  Only switch I did was removed the /stopcasting line, like this:

#show Seduction
/clearfocus [modifier:alt]
/focus [target=focus,noexists]; [target=focus,dead]
/clearfocus [target=focus,help]
/cast [pet:succubus,target=focus,exists,harm] Seduction; Seduction

Seduction only lasts for up to 15 seconds, it’s not a guaranteed 15 second of CC every time.  It has the chance of breaking early when you least expect it to as well.  What you will notice is that if the target breaks out of Seduction.  The mob will either do two things: One, shoot straight for the healer due to healing aggro proceding to 1-shot him/her or cause the healer to waste their precious GCD.  Two, shoot straight for your Succubus and usually 1-shotting her in the process then scurry off to give the healer the same lovin.

Do you want to learn the best, the most sure-fire way to stop both from ever happening again?  Okay I’ll let you in on my little secret.  Two words….Searing Pain.  You’re either thinking wtF u is stupid or why didn’t I think of that!  In addtion to your preffered seduce macro you have to time your Searing Pain to hit the target just before your Succubus can cast off Seduction.  It takes a couple of tries but you’ll get it down in no time flat.  Plus because of casting Searing Pain I had to remove the /stopcasting line because it interferes in being able to cast Searing Pain.  Oh yeah don’t go overzealous with Searing Pain.  Just cast it once and that’s all you need to keep it’s attention.

It gets even better if you are spec’d to have your Succubus instant cast Seduction in addition to giving mana back to your Succubus through Mana Feed.  I’m not saying that you need to spec into these two talents for this to work, they are just optional.  You can still get the job done with out those two but there will be down time because your Succubus needs to regain her mana.  I wonder if resummoning her back out if she will get a full mana bar in exchange for a Soul Shard?

Oh yeah by the way.  Now that you’ve really gotten the attention of that target.  Might I suggest that you keep some distance from them.  Don’t forget to remind your tank to taunt that target off you as well if possible.
