I've been spending a lot of time thinking about which class I would like to roll in classic, and I finally settled on rolling a mage that identifies as a warlock. I was just wondering, should I expect to face any discrimination against classqueer folks from the classic community?
You can, but the game itself won't really hand you the necessary spells to make you feel like a Warlock, as a Mage.
I guess you could only spam Fireball and the like. Pretend your minipet is an imp.
Best of luck mate.
Some warlocks in the lore used to be mages or shamans so I think you can just roll a warlock and have him identify as a dark mage.
What you refer to as "evil" exists in each and every single one of us. The difference is that us Warlocks choose to embrace it and use it to achieve our goals. This comes with advantages and... minor inconveniences, certainly. Do not flirt with powers you are not ready to accept, Mage. You will end up with all the burdens and none of the power, mocked by both sides for your ineptitude.
