Warlock is actually a derogatory term for witches, who are both male and female . some but not all witches are witches by religion, Wicca, or the Craft.Witches are permitted to do no harm in their magyk, but are still stereotyped badly as dark evil-doers in the eyes of the church.Misinformed people… often think that Warlock is a term for a male witch, but that is incorrect as the word "warlock" is derived from ME and means Traitor. Male witches are called witches same as females. (MORE)
Answer . The actual definition of the word "Warlock" really is not nessicarly magical. "Warlock" means in a literal translation "Oath Breaker". As regularly misinterpreted as meaning a Wizard, which it isn't nessicarily (A "Warlock" is generally portrayed in mythology, stories, and folklore as a …evil wizard who practices black magic for the purposes of harming people). Therefore, take an oath, and then break it, and presto your a Warlock. If you want to succumb to the common misinterpertation, then first somehow learn the ancient magickal art, secrets, and practices of the Wizard/Witch, and then take an Oath and break it, and then to top it all off for added effects become evil. Presto, there we go.. Answer . You just become wicked. Make up potions like leaves,ants,bugs anything that is like witchcraft.. Answer . you can only be born into the practice. it cannot be taught to an un-magical soul. (MORE)
yes The term Warlock means an "oath-breaker" so yeah I imagine there are plenty of them still running around.
A wizard is someone who uses spells to do magic. spells can includepoems or magic words, but can also use objects and movements, likea dance. experienced wizards can sometimes do magic simply byrecalling the memory of the spell, without actually performing it. A warlock is someone who practiced magi…c in a coven of the wiccanreligion, who was later banished from the coven, usually byrevealing secrets or breaking coven laws. coven laws usuallyinclude using magic only for "good" things which do not interferewith people's free will. the commonly understood way to be banishedfrom a coven and live as a warlock is to use magic for evil, suchas to harm or control people. all traditional witches, where theyuse spells and potions to curse people or control people, orwhatever you can think of green, ugly witches doing with magic, aremost likely warlocks. warlock/witch magic follows wiccan magic rituals. wizard magicfollows fantasy story magic rituals. it can be said and argued thatwiccan magic is realistic, while wizard magic defies laws ofphysics by creating things from thin air and manipulating things inimpossible ways. Actually, in the wiccan religion there are no wizards, onlywitches- male and female. Warlock is a derogatory term for anywitch even those outside of wicca. Witches who use magyk for evilmay be banished from their coven, but the wiccan rede and thethreefold law forbid black magyk and attatch a consequensce todoing so. Green is a sacred color in wicca, representing the earthmother and the element of earth. Witches do spells fro healing,connections, and understanding to help themselves develop a bondwith nature and the goddess to understand themselves, the devine,and everyone of any religion or path.

This depends on what you mean. In video games, wizards and warlocks have their own special representations but in real life there are religions that follow witchcraft, or the craft. One such religion is Wicca, where followers cast spells that connect them to nature, the goddess and the god. Warlocks… in lore and movies tend to be evil and harmful, and wizards more helpful and elemental. You just have to remember that while Magyk is very real indeed, there is a lot of untrue static so you must dig deeper to find truths. (MORE)
Warlock is technically gender neutral so can apply to males and females; however, it is popularly treated is as the male version of witch.
The word "Warlock" actually means Oath breaker or deceiver , and is not a commonly used term in Paganism. The opposite of Warlock is commonly accepted to be Witch . However, a witch is simply a practitioner of Magick, or a wise one , and the term applies to both genders.
The noun 'warlock' is a common gender noun , a word for amale or a female. The original meaning of the word "warlock" was "oath breaker" or"one who has broken their oath with God" It is from the middle agesand referred to anyone male or female, (it also is a non-genderspecific word) who practiced …any form of paganism. At the time theCatholic church was on a mission to eradicate paganism, and intheir attempts they demonized the gods of paganism and claimed thepractitioners had "made a pact with the devil", hence the term"oath breaker". The noun 'witch' is also a common gender noun, a word for a male ora female. Contrary to the popular fiction and fantasy works, thereis NO masculine word for witch. Writers of fiction can use any wordas it suits their storyline. (MORE)
Witch. The above would be correct when referring to fiction and fantasy stories. The neo-pagan religion of Wicca or Witchcraft does not recognise a gender, all are referred to as witches. The term Warlock is an old and extremely derogatory word. The true meaning of which is "Oath-breaker" f…or one who has broken their oath or faith with God. It is not now, nor has it ever been, gender specific. The common usage of the term in modern day fiction is something that I hope one day will be addressed. I do not advocate the complete removal of the word from the language, as in the manner of other commonly used racial slurs from the past have been eradicated. But, I do think one should know the correct meaning of a word before they bandy it about willy-nilly. (MORE)
Waarokku The closest Japanese word that isn't a Japanese pronunciation of the English word is 'maou'.. waarokku is the masculine form,aarokku the feminine form.waarokku is used mostly in reference to tibetan monks.
The warlock is similar to mage but uses shadow and fire spells and can have a minion (similar to pet but evil). Those two classes are similar because they both use cloths and they both are ranged but the difference comes in the type of damage... the mage deal burst damage (one powerful spell that d…eals a great deal of damage and has a cast time and has to be cast one after another) and the warlock uses DOTs (damage over time) instant casts that stay on the target deal instant or increasing damage for a set time period returning health to the warlock in some ocassions. the lock also have time-casted spells like shadow bolt but you can play with the talent points to be a caster or a DOTer (MORE)
Warlock is an ancient word which means Oath breaker. It was/is not gender specific. It has come to be mistakenly used to refer to a male witch, however the word witch is not gender specific either. Therefore there is no female of warlock.
In World of Warcraft, Warlock is a class - a category; there is no male/female. In English warlock traditionally is a male witch, so the feminine version of a warlock would be a witch.
Just choose "warlock" under the character selection menu. Well first of all you should of put how can you be a warlock in world of warcraft that question is very misleading
I think you mean dark wizards, and they are by the south entrence to varrock No, I think they mean black warlocks, which are butterflies, and are located in the feldip hills jungle hunting area
warlock is a very powerful ceature that summons infernal,a golem like creature that stuns enemies and definitely kill it fast.
Warlock is the term for an oath breaker. yep sure you can do that. If you mean a male Witch the term is Witch and yes that is possible too.
There are 3 different kinds of each, making 9 different fight scenarios. Plus you have to factor in gear and skill level. And even a little luck. in situations where they are equal, it usually just comes down to who got the first shot off.
well, depends on what your going for, affliction is basicly a bunch of DoTs on your enemy and destruction is kinda a "Dark Mage" kinda gameplay. it depends on either how you wanna play in damage (DPS or DoT) or how you wanna kinda roleplay or something.. Tyrant9 edit: it all depends how you play...… affliction is great for damage over time spells which means great in pvp and I've played level 80 warlock and I love it in raids as well. Demonology is great for leveling I wouldn't recommend it for raids or pvp cause it doesnt do enough damage in pvp and in raids the demons can take aggro from tank easily plus demons just get in the way most of the time.. Destruction is ALOT of primary damage which is great in pvp but unless you have alot of threat reduction I don't recommend using it in dungeons cause it has very high threat (MORE)

The book The Warlock will come out early 2011, hopefully soon! Other books in the same series include The Alchemyst , The Magician, The Sorceress, and the Necromancer. The book after The Warlock, will come out in 2012, titled The Enchantress. I look forward to both the books.
A descendant of Borong the Warlock The Warlock Doberman The "Warlock" Dobermans are also known as "Kings" or "Goliaths" and are not really a true Doberman breed. Their existence stems from a surge in demand for "big bad Dobes" back in the 1970's. It is widely believed that Dobes were bred with Gre…at Danes and some other large breeds to satisfy the demand. Today the term Warlock is applied to the poorly bred and oversized dog which does not conform to the breed's standards. The original "Warlock" was a dog named "Borong the Warlock." Borong was breed in Florida in the mid 1950's by Theodosia and Henry Frampton So where did "Warlock, and the other over-sized Dobermans come from? The so-called Doberman variety can be accounted for by one of two scenarios: a Doberman cross-bred with a larger dog (thus accounting for the Warlock's abnormal size) or two large Dobermans bred to beget pups which are out of standard for their abnormal size. In either case, the litter is not worth purebred prices or consideration when showing. The name "Warlock" comes from an actual dog. Borong the Warlock was born in the mid-50's. Borong was not abnormally large; in fact, he won a number of shows including Westminster ('52 and '53) under the handling of Henry Frampton, his owner. Borong could not have done that if he were as large as 110 pounds, the weight of some of these warlock monstrosities. Dobermans should weigh about 70-73 pounds to be within standard size. Borong's name, however, became irretrievably linked with super-sized Dobes when Texan breeders who bred his descendants began breeding for size. For twenty years, various traits, such as a lock of hair, large size (or small size accompanied by great strength), or even a certain facial expression, were supposed to indicate a Warlock. There was no standard for what a "Warlock" really was. It originally meant a descendant of Borong, but it came to mean a large Doberman. By the 1970's, Dobermans became extremely popular in the US, and as with any fad, people wanted more varieties. Like clothing fashions, consumers wanted different types of Dobermans. Popular myth fed this craving, and "Warlock Dobermans" became a fad. There is no widely known kennel club in the world that currently recognizes "Warlock Dobermans" as a variety, such as giant poodles are to standard poodles. Because of that decade's Doberman over breeding, many "Warlock" Dobermans have been whelped to date which have no blood relationship to Borong the Warlock. Unscrupulous breeders have tainted Borong's reputation by cross breeding great Danes with Dobermans and passing off the pups as "Warlocks." The REAL Warlock, Borong, was a purebred.. These breeders also disservice the Doberman breed as a whole by carelessly deviating from the standard for Doberman size and exploiting people's lust for "bigger, better" dogs. Instead of buying monstrously sized Dobermans, these folks should simply buy a different dog. Charging purebred prices for these mixed-breeds is also dishonest. There's nothing wrong with owning a mixed-breed dog; however, buyers should not be fooled into pay too much for a mixed-breed (or out-of-standard) dog. (MORE)
right, warlocks are good because they have a pet for a starter, they also have EMENSE damage which convinde with the pet = certion win in duels. they can also make soul stones to heal and can inflect deadly curses upon foes which can help with killing the thing you are trying to kill.

However, Warlocks mostly use dark or chaotic magic...the meaning of the word Warlock is "deceiver", "betrayer" or "oath breaker". (MORE)
The Warlock class uses shadow and fire magic for their spells via curses, incineration, and shadowbolts. They have command over several demons (not at once). They can summon other players in their party to them with the help of their comrades, and provide resurrection via soulstones. They have AoE c…apabilities as well as very powerful single target spells. (MORE)

A Pagan Answer In fiction witches are practitioners of magic. Some are good, others are evil. They are often depicted as old, ugly women riding flying brooms, who are in league with the devil. Th In fiction warlocks are male witches. In the real world , witches are often, but not always, p…ractitioners of one of many earth based spiritual paths, that practice some form of magic*. The word witch is not gender specific, and is applied equally to both men and women. The word warlock is a derogatory term for an oath breaker * Magic in this case is the manipulation of naturally occurring powers by the hand and will of a practitioner. Please note, not all practitioners of magic call or consider themselves witches; not all followers of the earth based spiritual paths call or consider themselves witches. (MORE)
The word "origin" is derived from the French word "origin" and theLatin word "originem," both of which mean, beginning, descent,birth, and rise.
Warlocks are masters of shadow, flame, and demonic power. They are a robed class that excels at plaguing their enemies with disease or curses, hurling bolts of fire or shadow energy across the battlefield, and summoning demons to aid them in combat. While warlocks are powerful casters that deal dama…ge from a distance, their demonic powers can also protect or support their allies in battle, or even summon other players from across the world using ritual magic to conjure portals. Warlocks have both powerful damage spells (primarily dealing over time) and debuff spells that work well in conjunction with each other and with the abilities of their group mates. They have Curses for many occasions; in fact, they can easily be considered the best debuffers in the game. Their pets, too, help with the damage dealing and grant the Warlock extra abilities to put to use. They can also control crowds well with Seduction and Banish, and provide limited support in the form of their summoned stones. (MORE)
Wizards use scrolls, wands, orb and other magical items. Wizards can cast fire, ice, lightning and other elemental spells, while warlocks tend to cast only shadow and summoning spells.
As a Warlock, my answer is - yes, almost horrendously so. However, beyond my biasedness (?), there are several reasons for this. Firstly, they are, in my opinion, one of the most fun and rewarding classes to level - there is absolutely nothing better than that feeling of satisfaction when you gain y…our Felsteed or Felguard. They also offer a versatile playing style within the DPS role, offering focus on either DoT, blast, or pet damage. In addition to this, they also have a large number of utility options, which no other class has - these include creating Summoning Stones, Soulstones, and also Healthstones (which can be distributed via a Soulwell). The Warlock's talents are separated into three trees: . Affliction (focuses mainly on DoT damage) . Demonology (focuses on improving pet damage and survivability; also offers raid support & buffs) . Destruction (blast damage, good for fast kills, but high mana consumption) Because of this, I would say that yes, Warlocks are good. (MORE)
no i never met my grandfather but my mom just recently found out that her grandfather was a warlock
Old Affliction spec. . This build was very popular with 4 DPS teams. Many teams often consisted of a Warlock, Shadow Priest, Rogue, and one other DPS (generally a Shaman or Mage) and will attempt to burn down one opponent as soon as possible to end a match quickly. The primary use of this build is… to protect Fear's and Shadow Priest debuffs with UA; otherwise, most teams would be better off using a Demonology spec. . The only time it is practical to spec it is if you have a higher priority target (in other words, a Shadow Priest) on your team. (MORE)

As far a physical strength, the Paladin is stronger. It is meant to be a melee class and melee classes are always physically stronger than caster classes. Now, warlocks are stronger at magic damage as they are a caster. Magic damage goes right through armor.
Depending on what the build is used for (raid trash, bosses, solo play), an Affliction build is probably the best all around. A Destruction build might be better for clearing trash in instances, but will use far more mana than Affliction. With Affliction, you also have the health returns from Soul S…iphon and other talents.

The word "warlock" means oath breaker or liar. Though a lot of people use the word warlock to describe a male witch it is not an accurate synonym for the word witch. Most male witches I know, simply say they are a witch. It's like being a male nurse, you are still a nurse even if you are a male.

To be a warlock you need to have the warlocks mark, something that makes you different e.g. blue skin, cat eyes, or something small like yellow eyes or blue hair etc. If you concentrate hard enough, channeling your energy, blue smoke should come out of your finger tips, if this doesn't happen it is …probably because you don't know how to harness your powers.

Just to be clear: Witches, Warlocks and Necromancers are all FICTIONAL as are the acts and magic portrayed. A necromancer is a type of wizard, like a Warlock but His (or Her) magic is based on death.
