Inaccurate comparison[edit]

The description here refers to the Sorcerer (Dungeons & Dragons), but I feel it's an innacurate comparison. For example, one sentence reads "Unlike sorcerers and wizards, who approach arcane magic through spells and scrolls, a warlock invokes magic through an effort of willpower." Sorcerors do not learn magic though scrolls, I'm told, but rather have it as an innate ability, an "effort of willpower" as it were. I'd appreciate and experienced D&D player reworking this page, as I lack practical play experience. ---Anonymous Idiot

I gave it a once over. I've played a Warlock, and currently DM for one too. The content is correct, but if you want to clean it up a little, be my guest. ---Xpochian


Since when does 'overpowered' belong in a wikipedia article? 13:05, 12 June 2007 (UTC)

It doesn't, unless the statement can be cited as a widespread belief. Otherwise, it's original research.

Citation Needed[edit]

"Tieflings, half-elves and humans make excellent warlocks in 4th edition." It says it in the 4th edition player handbook, Pg 130, in the little box labeled "warlock overview"; "...Races: Tieflings are natural warlocks and are drawn to this path. Halflings, half-elves, and humans make formi- dable warlocks as well." I don't know how to add citations sorry -- (talk) 00:42, 3 January 2011 (UTC)

The "make excellent warlocks" part makes it sound like someone's opinion. Maybe if that sentence said "The 4th edition Player's Handbook suggests tieflings, halflings, half-elves, and humans for the warlock class", or something like that? (talk) 01:21, 3 January 2011 (UTC)
