So I'm bored at work and I came across a thread that had some possible new spell names for ROK.  The warlock one listed was called Acid Storm.  My main isn't a warlock, so can any of you figure out if this would be an upgrade to a current spell line, or a new skill entirely? I've heard that they might be upgrading our 52,55,58 ATs, so maybe its an upgrade to Netherous Realm?  (Conceptually it works I guess, obviously the name progression doesn't work). 

Thanks

The fact that it calls for a new spell effect not currently in the game probably means it is a new spell.  But not necessarily.  It could be that it simply calls for a spell effect that isn't linked to the warlock class.  For example, the defiler's acid rain particle effect.  Acid Storm makes me think of that effect, but on multiple mobs at once.

Any chance it was confused with Acid Splash, the proc from our broodlings?

My feeling is it'll likely be an upgrade to Chaostorm.

Alternatively, if history has any impact on this .. we may just receive upgrades to all the spells we've received in the 50 to 60 level block.

And if that's the case, we are going to have quite a few VERY [Removed for Content] off Warlocks.  Because I assure you, having an upgrade to Corrupt Gift as our new endgame spell will not make anyone happy.

If it is an upgrade to Dark Infestation, then the 50 to 60 repeat is very likely.

I doubt that any of the Ancient Teachings spells will ever be upgraded.  They are specific to DoF and not part of the normal upgrade lines.  I suspect they will run on a percentage scale along with level.

My bet is on a blue AOE. Kind of like Call of Storms, but (hopefully) without the stun. Not very creative, but remember who we're dealing with SMILEY.

Looking at the past spells Warlocks have gotten I would think it's a huge PBAoE taunt...... just with a different sounding description.

Oooh, that's a good idea too. What about a feign death, that has a 80-50% chance (app1 - m1) chance of actually killing you? It cuts out the middle man.
