Hm, I actually tend to disagree... these are for PosChengband experts who want a challenge, so the reward shouldn't be to make the game easier.

But a "cosmetic" reward might be nice. Maybe the...

My battle tag is ghostaxe#1937 if you decide to play normal mode (I'll likely be playing Barbarian or Demon Hunter).

Er... Warlocks are not supposed to melee (unless you're Dragon Pact, and even then, not so much). Check out the "m"agic menu. You get ranged attacks that never miss for free.
