Are Warlocks Evil?
Are warlocks naturally evil? Is it just the nature of the class?
Last night on venti we got to talking about Warlocks… one person brought up the fact that in another game (I think Everquest) you didn’t want to play a warlock because sometimes the vendors wouldn’t deal with you.. because you were evil. She argued that there’s no such penalty in Warcraft.. no matter your class, the vendors will still talk with you. I countered that the example was flawed.. because warlocks aren’t evil.
Warlocks get all the same quests that everyone else does.. aside from the class quests. So in all other quests the Warlock is as-good or as-evil as every other class.
In the class specific quests..
I do know that the Undead/Blood Elf version of the Succubus quest sends you off to kill two humans and retrieve their hearts (Hearts as tokens of love)… it’s a little bit gross. But really.. no different than any other kill/gather quest.. well except that they’re humans.. and you’re bringing back their heart… ok.. so maybe Blood Elf and Undead are a little bit evil. I’m sure they could avoid this by doing the Orc version of the quests… ah yes.. go save Dorogan.. but he’s too hurt.. so retrieve his necklace instead. So if you do the Orc version.. no more evil.. if you do the Undead version.. ok.. maybe a tiny bit evil.
Outside of quests Warlocks have the same opportunites as other classes to kill random creatures. Is the warlock -more- evil because I use “Corruption” on every single bunny rabbit/toad I see instead of stabbing it with my sword? I think not. So the Warlock is no more evil than any other class when it comes to killing critters.
Demons are evil. Warlocks subjugate demons and force them to do good (well, at least to do quests). Therefore Warlocks are good.
So there you go.. Warlocks (except for undead and blood elf ones) are good.
