Why does moonkin get plate all the time and a dps increasing spec, but on a lock with a dps lowering spec, its only 18% up time? How is the lock overpowered but the moonkin isn't?
Trust me your survivability as a warlock is better overall than that of a boomkin. It used to not be so, but ever since casters do such wicked burst DPS now, boomkins are actually pretty squishy in PVP compared to warlocks. Between your soul link and your ability to drain tank - there isn't really a comparison. Not to mention that if you have a healer with you, you basically have infinite mana, whereas a boomkin doesn't.

PVE wise I've seen locks doing pretty well. I don't really know about PVP yet. I will say, though, that death knights and paladins are currently *the* pvp classes at the moment. Ironic considering how previously paladins were the worst next to hunters.
