Anyone have any experience with this combo, either as a duo or two box?

Looking for some opinions on this combo, mainly because I'm intrigued with the group mob killing capacity of the lock and the healing, root, and speed provided by the warden.

Thanks.

Any healer+Warlock is a good combo. However, wardens are probably the worst healer for a warlock. You'd be better off with a Shaman's prewards, or a Cleric's trigger-happy reactives against large groups of mobs. At least Furies can give the Warlock useful buffs, but its annoying two boxing spamming tiny heals all the time.The quickest way for a healer+warlock combo to work is for the warlock to tank large quantities. If you're going to root and nuke, you might as well do warlock+wizard or something, because the healer is going to be useless.It is far faster for the warlock to tank mobs than to root and nuke them. You waste too much time rooting, and a warlock's best spells are DoTs that will break roots easily. Max out magi shielding and go AGI+WIS, and the warlock will be doing ~15% of the heals themselves.

What about a SK and Warlock duo?  The SK holds aggro/debuffs and has enough healing life taps to stay alive while the Warlock nukes....would that work?

I play a Warlock Fury 2box setup.. and although there are prolly better healers from a less work in the healing department.  The Furys INT buffs come in real handy for some extra buffage for the lock.

I've had the opportunity to duo Achadechism with both a templar & a fury and I definitely felt like the fury was better able to keep me alive.  Both were equally well-equipped and were actually played by the same person both times so I feel it's a reasonable comparison.  The fury was able to keep me at full health almost the entire time.  With the templar, there was a lot more spiking below 50% when things got rough.  Of course, we didn't really have any trouble either time but I definitely felt a lot safer with the fury.  I haven't tried duoing with a shaman.2-boxing is going to be a different story of course, since you're probably looking for a class that can keep you healed with minimal effort/clicks so you don't have to go switching back and forth.  In that case, I would imagine a shaman/cleric might be a better bet than a druid, but that's just an educated guess as I don't have any real experience there.

The SK wouldn't be able to hold aggro against the warlock unless they used taunts, which is a damageless waste of mana. If you want to PL a squishy up, the best way is to mentor down a 70 tank and just put your squishy on AF. A mentored tank should be able to hold aggro no problem where an equal level tank would be struggling.The best duo partner to get xp is a shaman; the best duo partner to kill heroic content is an illusionist.

If given the choice I would say a Defiler is the best.  Otherwise a Mystic, or Inquisitor.
