  • Lost? Art?
    Gamepro has posted an Op/Ed on "The Lost Art of Class Balancing". It's possible that they even wrote this:

    "On the other side of the fence, Warlocks keel over and die as Undead
    players turn on Way of the Forsaken, making the race immune to the
    class's primary form of attack for the next 20 seconds (no sound effect
    telling the world, too). Teen libido magnet Succubus stands idly by as
    Rogues mash the squishy spellcasting class into oblivion."
