Former cultist of the Blacksun, Lannik was among the first of many orcs enslaved by the wretched demons when the Legion's taint befell the lands of Kalimdor - a dire affliction that grew stronger over the years. Mannoroth's sudden and unexpected demise severed this Warlock's ties to demonology, and the absence of its corrupting influenced caused his body to wither onto the verge of death. In exchange for life beyond the grave, he bound a pact with the Lich King. A master of demons and destructive spellwork, this warlock delights in tormenting creatures of the Light, extinguishing them like candles until none are left alive.

There is an advertisement on my screen now, it says "IMPROVE YOUR BRAIN". Listen to it. You can see the advertisement if you will be a good boy.

Don't forget Infernals are also last for 60 seconds. So in a team fight your team initiates, you thrown infernals at your enemies' head, you cast upheaval and possibly fatal bonds, 2-3 enemy heroes are gone to heaven, you Infernals have about 40 more seconds before disappearing. You used them to push, and surely 1 tower, 10-15 creeps while pushing. That's where you get your gold, if played properly. You don't steal from your carry, you make a team push, where killing creeps are most important.

Clearly by that emphasis on farm, an agh-refresher under 30 is over ks and farm, which even by warlock's worst role does not make him even a lack of all trades (6 min not-so lethal ulti anyone?). Not that it's bad, heck it's rape in pub, mass confusion and panic, but you totally mess up your lineup in competitive by not maximizing any role's potential and essentially screwing your carry's farm (and ks). Yeah, 99% of the time. Congratulations to your pro pub skills though.

You people underestimate team-heals too much


Since when do you farm 9k gold in solo lane with a hero that ain't suppose to farm?


Every point of gold over 4000 that warlock takes is stolen from a carry...that's a fact..

297 By RangedHeroProb 2011-04-21

40-60 minutes? You are assuming that Warlock can't farm? I can farm Agha+Refresher in less than that. It was rushed btw and I'm not really stealing gold from carries because carries aren't always in lane, they could be in jungle. Again, I said before this isn't gonna happen in 100% cases

296 By Ne0aly 2011-04-21

295 read 283
Considering you're playing semicarry where you're liberated to farm a little more, when would you get agh-refresh? 40-60 min amirite? By then infernals are pretty damn cakes and won't pose much of a threat after crashlanding.

295 By RangedHeroProb 2011-04-20

Well, not in 100% cases. If you are soloing in lane then you are not stealing gold. Besides, how come you don't want huge DPS area? You are not using your 4 infernal only for killing, but also for pushing. Push faster = win faster

294 By silentzero 2011-04-20

You mean after you buy boots you steal more or less 9K gold from the carry?

293 By RangedHeroProb 2011-04-19

That's why you have to use Upheaval. 84% slow isn't a joke. Enemies are basically stopping. 160 DPS area ftw.

I didn't call them a noob, I said 'probably' a noob. and btw you rush Agha+refresher which means you only buy boots the go straight to Agha+Refresher

292 By nooblet_pwner 2011-04-19

As 286 said, I clearly mentioned if he was playing the solo lane.
Mek is effective, yes. Early mek is awesome, yes. Late mek sucks, yes. The thing is, though, if you farm well enough to get a 20~ minute hex, that will allow your whole team to be more offensive, because you've just added the best disable in the game to your team. There is no reason NOT to get a hex, ever.

291 By mawhpawh 2011-04-19

It's wrong because it wont happen.
While being alot less useful earlygame, and then being a bit stronger late-late-LATE game is not worth it. And you will loose the game if you farm Agha and Refresher. Taking all your carries gold is not good.

290 By FL4SH_l3URN 2011-04-19

? What is wrong with 4x infernals? Calling 4 and then using fatal bonds and upheaval turn any team fight incredibly one sided.

Plus you can use the normal infernal cast once more before the refresher cooldown is done. Each time the 4 are cast there will be no more enemy team and a free lane push for you?

289 By Shin Imagine 2011-03-22

lol. diffusal blade owns the whole hero. purge can make almost all of his spells go waste. wonder if purge works agaist upheavel.

287 By microice 2011-03-20

try the ancient jango!!

286 By Zxcvbnm11592 2011-03-05

He said solo laner, and Warlock can be a pretty damn effective semi-carry.

285 By ->F3lix<-/ 2011-03-05


Imo, hex ain't really that necessary, better go cheap stuff that own...My own prefernce was meka+necro since it gives hp, mana, support power, true sight, manaburn, push power etc...However i recall people saying that it isn't good.

In short, ward, treads, meka is all you need, farming beyond that either means you suck or your team sucks, either ways you'll probably get toast...

284 By winner47 2011-03-05

Cant agree more with you 283.

283 By nooblet_pwner 2011-03-05

Unless the warlock on your team is one of the solo laners where his team gets a quick mek/hex.

Agha+Refresher = waste. You'll do that ever what, 6 minutes? By the time you've farmed that, it's probably late game. How many times will you even use it? 3? 4? Might as well get hex and/or shivas. Aghanims may give you 2 infernals, but (a) you're never gonna get full 160dps for however long time, nobody is stupid enough to stay there and (b) HEX IS BETTER.

282 By silentzero 2011-03-04

...and those who probably say that warlock needs to get more than 9.5K items and calls others noob are hypocrites.

Right. Surely warlock, more often whatnot, the babysitter/support hero, needs to steal the last hits in lane than the carry...unless you're in some kind of a team where the other 4 are constantly feeding.
