Affliction warlock talents

Affliction warlock talents DEFAULT

Use this interactive tool to see how your favorite talent + covenant combinations stack up against each other.

Why are all the bars almost full? If you optimize your rotation, soulbind tree, and gear for each and every talent + covenant build, their max potential output is going to be very close. With few exceptions, they are so close you would have a hard time measuring the difference in-game if you play each build optimally. Talents (and your covenant), more than anything, change how the game feels when you play it. We do not observe much build diversity in WoW. This tool is giving you the real data behind the potential of each talent, and the data shows us that there is no objective reason for a lack of build diversity. Our goal is to encourage players to try more builds by giving you real numbers behind the trade-off between different talents.

Click on any talent to lock it in. The remaining data will be filtered to only combinations using the talent(s) that you have selected. Use the pickers in the legend to modify the cutoffs between the green, yellow, and orange tiers as you see fit. The color-coding is there to help you visualize which builds you would consider.

Disclaimers: Certain talents can have situational use that makes them better or worse than this average data. This data assumes you can play every build equally well and have access to optimal gear.

We combine our optimizer and simulator to do a comprehensive test of talents and covenants. The optimizer is used to find sets of optimal gear (soulbind tree, stats, trinkets, etc.) for each relevant talent combination. We simulate all those sets and compare it to create this data. No one else is doing this! Less popular talents rarely get a fair analysis, but we specifically take time to optimize all potential builds.

Talent combinations are put into one of three tiers and color-coded. We purposely provide this information as tiered, not a specific ranked list of talent combos. An ordered list of the simulated DPS of different talent builds would be misleading. Simulators are great tools, but they are best used to examine trends in large amounts of data.

Our default cutoffs for the tiers are set so that all Tier 1 (green) builds can be competitive at the highest levels of play. Tier 2 (yellow) are still good, but might not get top parses as often. Tier 3 (orange) is where you would actually start to feel a difference without logging the results.

Talents that are faded out are utility talents or talent rows with minor impact that don't measurably change performance. Choose whichever one you like better or that is appropriate for the fight you are doing.

Affliction Warlock talents guide

Recommended Raiding Build

Single Target:

Cleave (Multi DoT ):

Cleave (Multi DoT 4+):

You pick Sow the Seeds if targets are stacked and Phantom Singularity if they are spread. Same logic for Siphon Life / Writhe in Agony. If you don’t have enough GCD to keep up 3rd dot then you drop Siphon Life.

Recommended Mythic+ Build for low keys:

Talents Discussion

Tier 1 (15)

Affliction Warlock Nightfall TalentNightfallPassive
Affliction Warlock Inevitable Demise TalentInevitable DemisePassive
Affliction Warlock Drain Soul TalentDrain SoulChanneled

Nightfall: Corruption damage has a chance to make the next Shadow Bolt instant and do 50% more damage.

Inevitable Demise: Damage with Agony increases the damage of your drain soul by 15% stacking up to 50%.

Drain Soul: Replace Shadow Bolt with a channel doing % more damage when the target is under 20% if a target dies while getting drained you gain a soulshard.

Raiding:Drain Soul Strong for shard sniping and the execute damage.

Mythic:Drain Soul Strong for shard sniping and the execute damage.

Tier 2 (25)

Affliction Warlock Writhe in Agony TalentWrithe in AgonyPassive
Affliction Warlock Absolute Corruption TalentAbsolute CorruptionPassive
Affliction Warlock Siphon Life TalentSiphon LifeInstant

Writhe in Agony: Agony stack up to 18 stacks and start with 4 stacks.

Absolute Corruption: Corruption will become permanent and deal 15% more damage

Siphon Life: An additional DoT that will heal you for 30% of the damage it does.

Raiding: Siphon Life works well with Malefic Rapture by increasing it’s damage but depending on build you may not have enough GCD to keep everything up then Writhe in Agony or Absolute Corruption will come in handy depending on if you play Sow the Seeds or not.

Mythic+: With recent buff of SoCSow the Seeds build is too strong for m+ which makes Absolute Corruption useless and there isn’t enough GCD for Siphon Life which makes Writhe in Agony our only talent in this tier.

Tier 3 (30)

Affliction Warlock Demon Skin TalentDemon SkinPassive
Affliction Warlock Burning Rush TalentBurning RushInstant
Affliction Warlock Dark Pact TalentDark PactInstant

Demon Skin: Soul Leech passively recharge % maximum health every 1 sec up to 15% of maximum health.

Burning Rush: Increase movement speed by 50% dealing 4% of maximum health every 1 sec.

Dark Pact: Sacrifice 20% max HP gaining % shield of sacrificed HP.

Demon Skin is strong when there is consistent ticking damage to help the healers. Burning Rush is very good when there is a lot of movement when you can't pre-plan it with Circle. Dark Pact is very good if there is a short high burst mechanic that you need to stack extra health/shield to survive.

Raiding: Situational, all 3 are viable depending on the situation but with the recent buff of Dark Pact it makes it a very good option in this tier.

Mythic: Situational, all 3 are viable depending on the situation but with the recent buff of Dark Pact it makes it a very good option in this tier.

Tier 4 (35)

Affliction Warlock Sow the Seeds TalentSow the SeedsPassive
Affliction Warlock Phantom Singularity TalentPhantom SingularityInstant
Affliction Warlock Vile Taint TalentVile Taint sec cast

Sow the Seeds: Seed of corruption get 2 more seeds.

Phantom Singularity: A strong AoE DoT that damages everything in a yard radius healing you for 25% of damage dealt.

Vile Taint: Strong burst AoE DoT costs 1 shard to cast and slowing targets by 30%.

Phantom Singularity is the strongest for a single target and you want to line it up with your shard dumping for most damage output.

Raiding:Phantom Singularity is a strong single target/cleave talent which also increases damage of Malefic Rapture. For some bosses with stacked targets Sow the Seeds may also be good.

Mythic+: With recent buff of SoCSow the Seeds build outperforms any other build in m+ by a mile regardless of losing single target damage.

Tier 5 (40)

Affliction Warlock Darkfury TalentDarkfuryPassive
Affliction Warlock Mortal Coil TalentMortal CoilInstant
Affliction Warlock Howl of Terror TalentHowl of TerrorInstant

Darkfury: Reduces the cooldown of Shadowfury by 15 sec increasing radius by 2 yards.

Mortal Coil: Horrifies target for 3 sec and healing you for 20% max HP 45 sec cooldown.

Howl of Terror: Instant fear all targets within 10 yards for sec breaks on damage taken.

Darkfury can be good if there are a lot of adds you need to stun or use it often. Mortal Coil is very strong just as a 20% heal every 45 seconds. Howl of Terror can be hard to find the right time to use due to fears breaking very fast.

Raiding:Mortal Coil Very strong sec heal to help out the healers.

Mythic+:Mortal Coil Very strong sec heal to help out the healer.

Tier 6 (45)

Affliction Warlock Shadow Embrace TalentShadow EmbracePassive
Affliction Warlock Haunt TalentHaunt sec cast

Haunt: Does small damage on impact and increased damage dealt to the target by 10%.

Grimoire of Sacrifice: Sacrifice your pet to gain a chance on hit to do splash damage.

Raid:Haunt Strong increase to single/Prio targets.

Mythic+:Haunt outperforms other talents.

Talent Choices for Affliction Warlock

Talents can be freely changed when out of combat and in a rested XP area (such as an inn or a capital city). Moreover, Tome of the Still Mind IconTome of the Still Mind and Codex of the Still Mind IconCodex of the Still Mind can be used to temporarily allow players to change talents anywhere, as long as they are out of combat.

1.1.

Raiding

Do note that the builds suggested above do not account for specific fights in the current raid tier; that said, we do have a dedicated page that covers a boss-by-boss talent recommendations, which you can find linked below.

Affliction Warlock Raid Page

1.2.

Mythic+

For specific Mythic+ advice, which typically involves having a set-up that can perform both in single target *and* AoE, and this set-up can also be influenced by affixes and other things like party composition and pull layout. Check out our dedicated M+ page below.

Affliction Warlock Mythic+ Page

1.3.

How To Use Affliction Warlock Talents

Since several talent choices have an effect on your gameplay, we recommend reading our rotation page linked below to find out how to adapt your playstyle and priority based on your selected talents.

Affliction Warlock Rotation and Cooldowns

2.

Tier 1 (Level 15) Talents for Affliction Warlock

Nightfall IconNightfall is currently overshadowed by the other 2 options, but can be considered in situations with frequent but brief movements.

Drain Soul IconDrain Soul is a competitive single target choice with the added bonuses of shard generation and execute damage choice.

Inevitable Demise IconInevitable Demise is close to Drain Soul IconDrain Soul in terms of single target damage, becoming the better option when more targets are involved, as long as Drain Soul IconDrain Soul cannot leverage shard sniping.

3.

Tier 2 (Level 25) Talents for Affliction Warlock

Siphon Life IconSiphon Life is the default choice for single and two target situations.

In multi-target scenarios you have the option to run either Writhe in Agony IconWrithe in Agony or Absolute Corruption IconAbsolute Corruption: the former should be taken in stacked AoE situations where you can easily refresh Corruption IconCorruption with Seed of Corruption IconSeed of Corruption, while the latter should be considered whenever targets are spread or to reduce the Corruption IconCorruption upkeep and free global cooldown to use somewhere else.

4.

Tier 3 (Level 30) Talents for Affliction Warlock

Burning Rush IconBurning Rush remains the most versatile option, as Warlocks have little base mobility. Burning Rush functions both as a means to stay in range and position aggressively, but also as a means of dodging mechanics. It is my opinion that movement speed offers the greatest defensive benefit in most situations, and you should default to this talent.

Dark Pact IconDark Pact is a good option for encounters where you need to soak a mechanic or survive a telegraphed amount of high damage. It is important to note that the damage absorb is based on current health, rendering this ability useless as a reactive cooldown. For Dark Pact to be effective, it needs to be used while you are close to full health to mitigate a future amount of damage.

Demon Skin IconDemon Skin is a good choice for encounters with low movement and consistent damage intake.

5.

Tier 4 (Level 35) Talents for Affliction Warlock

Phantom Singularity IconPhantom Singularity is the default choice for pure single target.

Vile Taint IconVile Taint is the well rounded pick, albeit numerically inferior to Phantom Singularity IconPhantom Singularity until 7 targets, and worse than Sow the Seeds IconSow the Seeds with 3+ targets.

Sow the Seeds IconSow the Seeds is the best choice with 3 or more targets, at the expense of single target damage.

6.

Tier 5 (Level 40) Talents for Affliction Warlock

With Demonic Circle IconDemonic Circle becoming baseline Mortal Coil IconMortal Coil is now the default choice for most situations. It offers a noticeable heal on top of an additional form of Crowd Control, which can prevent a wipe, especially in Mythic dungeons.

Darkfury IconDarkfury is an option for dungeons and Mythic+, allowing you to Crowd Control groups of enemies far more often.

Howl of Terror IconHowl of Terror is perhaps the more dungeon oriented option in the row, allowing yet another form of AoE disruption on a relatively short cooldown.

7.

Tier 6 (Level 45) Talents for Affliction Warlock

Haunt IconHaunt is currently the best talent on the tier in most raid and Mythic+ situations.

Shadow Embrace IconShadow Embrace should be considered in situations where there are 2 to 3 targets alive for long period of time.

Grimoire of Sacrifice IconGrimoire of Sacrifice could be an option for Mythic+, however, it is currently outscaled by the other 2 options while not providing any meaningful benefit, beside sacrificing Summon Voidwalker IconSummon Voidwalker for an additional defensive cooldown.

8.

Tier 7 (Level 50) Talents for Affliction Warlock

Creeping Death IconCreeping Death is currently outscaled in any situation by the other two options, as it does not synergise with our new main spender Malefic Rapture IconMalefic Rapture.

Dark Soul: Misery IconDark Soul: Misery is the standard choice for most raid encounters, as it delivers the strongest 1-2 target damage.

Soul Conduit IconSoul Conduit thanks to its synergy with Malefic Rapture IconMalefic Rapture is a compelling choice.

9.

PvP Talents (War Mode)

Under our Talents section, there is the option to enter "War Mode". Enabling War Mode provides the following benefits:

  • PvP talents enabled in the outdoor world;
  • 10% increase in World Quest rewards at maximum level;
  • 10% more experience gained while leveling;
  • Earn Conquest Points which can reward gear every week.

With the benefits of enabling War Mode for leveling and PvE content, it is recommended you enable the feature. In most situations, this will allow for the maximum returns despite the risks. You will make yourself available for open world PvP, and the possibility to be "ganked" while leveling or doing World Quests exists.

9.1.

Affliction Warlock War Mode Talents

In this section we will rank the PvP talents best for leveling and doing solo / small group PvE content. Below is a ranking of both General PvP Talents and Affliction Warlock-specific PvE talents.

9.1.1.

Warlock generic PvP Talents

  1. Essence Drain IconEssence Drain stacks a damage reduction effect on enemies that are damaged by your Drain Life IconDrain Life. You can reduce their damage by up to 25%, which is a large increase to your ability to survive and sustain.
  2. Amplify Curse IconAmplify Curse empower your next curse effect.
  3. Bane of Fragility IconBane of Fragility reduces the target's maximum health by up to 10% by 15 seconds, which is very desirable when setting up bursts.
  4. Casting Circle IconCasting Circle is a 1 minute cooldown ability that creates an area where you are immune to silence and interrupts for 8 seconds. Removes silence/interrupt immunity from Unending Resolve IconUnending Resolve.
  5. Gateway Mastery IconGateway Mastery increase your gateway's range by 20 yards, and reduces the duration of the debuff placed on players using it by 15 seconds, making it a good choice when increased mobility is needed.
  6. Nether Ward IconNether Ward summons a shield lasting 3 seconds and reflecting back all harmful spells targeted at you. Has a 45-second cooldown and it is extremely valuable when facing caster teams.
  7. Demon Armor IconDemon Armor increases max health by 5% and armour by 90%, making it an extremely useful choice against melee heavy teams.

9.1.2.

Affliction Warlock PvP Talents

  1. Rampant Afflictions IconRampant Afflictions increase the target limit for Unstable Affliction IconUnstable Affliction to 3.
  2. Rot and Decay IconRot and Decay can be very useful in situations with high sustained damage intake. Combining this with Essence Drain IconEssence Drain greatly increases your survivability and sustainability and opens a lot of doors for soloing difficult content.
  3. Bane of Shadows IconBane of Shadows causes damage over time effects to strike an additional time for 20% of their original damage while active. This offers a little bit of extra burst damage on a short cooldown.
  4. Deathbolt IconDeathbolt is a 40-second cooldown nuke that deals 40% of the total remaining damage over time effects on the target. It is generally used to catch people off guard and burst them.
  5. Soulshatter IconSoulshatter consumes up to the 5 nearest Corruption IconCorruptions dealing 10% of their maximum health and returning 1 Soul Shards for each enemy hit.

Talents affliction warlock

Affliction Warlock has a history of being among the top-performing specializations in World of Warcraft—and Shadowlands is no exception. 

The spec uses damage-over-time abilities like Agony, Corruption, and Unstable Affliction to slowly eat away at your enemies’ health bar, all while ‌dispensing powerful ‌single‌ ‌and‌ ‌multi-target‌ ‌damage with Malefic Rapture.

Best Affliction talents for raiding

  • Level 15: Drain Soul
  • Level 25: Siphon Life
  • Level 30: Burning Rush
  • Level 35: Phantom Singularity
  • Level 40: Mortal Coil
  • Level 45: Haunt
  • Level 50: Dark Soul: Misery

Tier one (Level 15) talents for Affliction

Drain Soul is the go-to talent in tier one, beating out Nightfall and Inevitable Demise by a considerable margin. It deals more single target damage and helps to easily maintain stacks of Shadow Embrace—increasing damage dealt to the target by three percent for 12 seconds and stacking up to three times.

Inevitable Demise is a viable option in some encounters and can be especially powerful in fights like Mythic Sludgefist, but Drain Soul will always be your safest option.

Tier two (Level 25) talents for Affliction

Siphon Life is outright the best single-target damage option in tier two. It&#;s another damage-over-time ability, similar to Agony and Corruption, catering to Malefic Rapture windows. It also heals for 30 percent of its damage dealt—another added bonus.

Tier three (Level 30) talents for Affliction

This row is entirely down to personal preference.

Burning Rush stands out as the best talent due to its increased movement speed. But Demon skin, which recharges your Soul Leech shield by one percent every second, and Dark Pact, which sacrifices 20 percent of your demon&#;s health and grants you a percent shield for 20 seconds, are both entirely viable.

Tier four (Level 35) talents for Affliction

Phantom Singularity is another damage-over-time ability, this time with a second cooldown. When combined with Agony, Corruption, Unstable Affliction, and Night Fae&#;s Soul Rot, it increases Malefic Rapture&#;s damage output. The ability also deals area-of-effect damage, making it a powerful option for encounters with adds.

Tier five (Level 40) talents for Affliction

Tier five, like tier three, is down to personal preference. Darkfury reduces Shadowfury&#;s cooldown by 15 seconds, Mortal Coil &#;horrifies&#; an enemy and heals you for 20 percent of your maximum health, and Howl of Terror lets loose a howl, causing five enemies with 10 yards to flee in fear.

Mortal Coil is ordinarily the strongest option because of its heal, but it shouldn&#;t make a great deal of difference either way.

Tier six (Level 45) talents for Affliction

Haunt is the clear winner in terms of single-target damage in this row. When applied to a target, it increases your damage dealt by 10 percent for 18 seconds and applies a stack of Shadow Embrace. It&#;s easy to maintain and has a second cooldown, meaning it has no downtime.

Dark Caller, which lines up your Summon Darkglare with your Dark Soul: Misery looks tempting, but it simply can&#;t keep up with Haunt&#;s damage output.

Tier seven (Level 50) talents for Affliction

Dark Soul: Misery is the best talent in this row. It increases your haste by 30 percent for 20 seconds, allowing you to easily dish out Malefic Raptures on a two-minute cooldown.

Soul Conduit, which has a chance to refund Soul Shards, and Creeping Death, which makes Agony, Corruption, Siphon Life, and Unstable Affliction deal their full damage 15 percent faster, are far weaker alternatives.

The following build is the best talent build for Affliction Warlocks in PvE. It takes all the DPS increasing talents available. There is very little room for variation with this build, and we advise you to use it in every situation.

Standard Affliction Specialisation

The talent build that we provided above is currently the best Affliction talent build. Most of your talents are mandatory and there is very little room for variation. There are two talents that you may want to include in your build in exceptional circumstances (although we do not advise it). We briefly cover these talents in the section below.

Optional Talents

The two talents that you can choose to take, based on certain situations, are:

Glyphs

Choosing the correct glyphs as an Affliction Warlock is very straightforward.

Prime Glyphs

In all single target situations, you should use the following 3 Prime Glyphs:

In an encounter where you will use your DoTs on more than one target (and where you will, therefore, use Bane of Agony IconBane of Agony), you can consider replacing Glyph of Unstable Affliction with Glyph of Bane of Agony.

Major Glyphs

There are several viable choices for Major Glyphs, although we recommend the first three in most cases:

  • Glyph of Life Tap, which reduces the global cooldown of Life Tap IconLife Tap by seconds.
  • Glyph of Shadow Bolt, which reduces the mana cost of Shadow Bolt IconShadow Bolt by 15%.
  • Glyph of Soul Swap, which causes your Soul Swap IconSoul Swap to leave the DoTs on the target you are casting Soul Swap on, thus allowing you to essentially copy your DoTs and have them up on two targets, as opposed to simply transferring them. As a drawback, it gives Soul Swap a 30 second cooldown. This glyph is essential in multiple-target fights.
  • Glyph of Healthstone, which increases the amount of healing you receive from healthstones by 30%. Note that this only applies to healing you receive, and not the healing other players receive when they use your healthstones.
  • Glyph of Soulstone, which causes the target of your 6Create Soulstone IconCreate Soulstone to come back to life with an additional 40% health. Note that this health increase is only present when you use Soulstone as a combat resurrection, not when you cast it on someone before they have died.

Minor Glyphs

The benefit gained from Minor glyphs is very small. There are only two Minor glyphs that you should use in every situation. They are:

For the third glyph slot, your options are:

Talent Choices for Affliction Warlock

Talents can be freely changed when out of combat and in a rested XP area (such as an inn or a capital city). Moreover, Tome of the Still Mind IconTome of the Still Mind and Codex of the Still Mind IconCodex of the Still Mind can be used to temporarily allow players to change talents anywhere, as long as they are out of combat.

Raiding

Do note that the builds suggested above do not account for specific fights in the current raid tier; that said, we do have a dedicated page that covers a boss-by-boss talent recommendations, which you can find linked below.

Affliction Warlock Raid Page

Mythic+

For specific Mythic+ advice, which typically involves having a set-up that can perform both in single target *and* AoE, and this set-up can also be influenced by affixes and other things like party composition and pull layout. Check out our dedicated M+ page below.

How To Use Affliction Warlock Talents

Since several talent choices have an effect on your gameplay, we recommend reading our rotation page linked below to find out how to adapt your playstyle and priority based on your selected talents.

Affliction Warlock Rotation and Cooldowns

2.

Tier 1 (Level 15) Talents for Affliction Warlock

Nightfall IconNightfall is currently overshadowed by the other 2 options, but can be considered in situations with frequent but brief movements.

Drain Soul IconDrain Soul is a competitive single target choice with the added bonuses of shard generation and execute damage choice.

Inevitable Demise IconInevitable Demise is close to Drain Soul IconDrain Soul in terms of single target damage, becoming the better option when more targets are involved, as long as Drain Soul IconDrain Soul cannot leverage shard sniping.

3.

Tier 2 (Level 25) Talents for Affliction Warlock

Siphon Life IconSiphon Life is the default choice for single and two target situations.

In multi-target scenarios you have the option to run either Writhe in Agony IconWrithe in Agony or Absolute Corruption IconAbsolute Corruption: the former should be taken in stacked AoE situations where you can easily refresh Corruption IconCorruption with Seed of Corruption IconSeed of Corruption, while the latter should be considered whenever targets are spread or to reduce the Corruption IconCorruption upkeep and free global cooldown to use somewhere else.

4.

Tier 3 (Level 30) Talents for Affliction Warlock

Burning Rush IconBurning Rush remains the most versatile option, as Warlocks have little base mobility. Burning Rush functions both as a means to stay in range and position aggressively, but also as a means of dodging mechanics. It is my opinion that movement speed offers the greatest defensive benefit in most situations, and you should default to this talent.

Dark Pact IconDark Pact is a good option for encounters where you need to soak a mechanic or survive a telegraphed amount of high damage. It is important to note that the damage absorb is based on current health, rendering this ability useless as a reactive cooldown. For Dark Pact to be effective, it needs to be used while you are close to full health to mitigate a future amount of damage.

Demon Skin IconDemon Skin is a good choice for encounters with low movement and consistent damage intake.

5.

Tier 4 (Level 35) Talents for Affliction Warlock

Phantom Singularity IconPhantom Singularity is the default choice for pure single target.

Vile Taint IconVile Taint is the well rounded pick, albeit numerically inferior to Phantom Singularity IconPhantom Singularity until 7 targets, and worse than Sow the Seeds IconSow the Seeds with 3+ targets.

Sow the Seeds IconSow the Seeds is the best choice with 3 or more targets, at the expense of single target damage.

6.

Tier 5 (Level 40) Talents for Affliction Warlock

With Demonic Circle IconDemonic Circle becoming baseline Mortal Coil IconMortal Coil is now the default choice for most situations. It offers a noticeable heal on top of an additional form of Crowd Control, which can prevent a wipe, especially in Mythic dungeons.

Darkfury IconDarkfury is an option for dungeons and Mythic+, allowing you to Crowd Control groups of enemies far more often.

Howl of Terror IconHowl of Terror is perhaps the more dungeon oriented option in the row, allowing yet another form of AoE disruption on a relatively short cooldown.

7.

Tier 6 (Level 45) Talents for Affliction Warlock

Haunt IconHaunt is currently the best talent on the tier in most raid and Mythic+ situations.

Shadow Embrace IconShadow Embrace should be considered in situations where there are 2 to 3 targets alive for long period of time.

Grimoire of Sacrifice IconGrimoire of Sacrifice could be an option for Mythic+, however, it is currently outscaled by the other 2 options while not providing any meaningful benefit, beside sacrificing Summon Voidwalker IconSummon Voidwalker for an additional defensive cooldown.

8.

Tier 7 (Level 50) Talents for Affliction Warlock

Creeping Death IconCreeping Death is currently outscaled in any situation by the other two options, as it does not synergise with our new main spender Malefic Rapture IconMalefic Rapture.

Dark Soul: Misery IconDark Soul: Misery is the standard choice for most raid encounters, as it delivers the strongest target damage.

Soul Conduit IconSoul Conduit thanks to its synergy with Malefic Rapture IconMalefic Rapture is a compelling choice.

9.

PvP Talents (War Mode)

Under our Talents section, there is the option to enter "War Mode". Enabling War Mode provides the following benefits:

  • PvP talents enabled in the outdoor world;
  • 10% increase in World Quest rewards at maximum level;
  • 10% more experience gained while leveling;
  • Earn Conquest Points which can reward gear every week.

With the benefits of enabling War Mode for leveling and PvE content, it is recommended you enable the feature. In most situations, this will allow for the maximum returns despite the risks. You will make yourself available for open world PvP, and the possibility to be "ganked" while leveling or doing World Quests exists.

Affliction Warlock War Mode Talents

In this section we will rank the PvP talents best for leveling and doing solo / small group PvE content. Below is a ranking of both General PvP Talents and Affliction Warlock-specific PvE talents.

Warlock generic PvP Talents

  1. Essence Drain IconEssence Drain stacks a damage reduction effect on enemies that are damaged by your Drain Life IconDrain Life. You can reduce their damage by up to 25%, which is a large increase to your ability to survive and sustain.
  2. Amplify Curse IconAmplify Curse empower your next curse effect.
  3. Bane of Fragility IconBane of Fragility reduces the target's maximum health by up to 10% by 15 seconds, which is very desirable when setting up bursts.
  4. Casting Circle IconCasting Circle is a 1 minute cooldown ability that creates an area where you are immune to silence and interrupts for 8 seconds. Removes silence/interrupt immunity from Unending Resolve IconUnending Resolve.
  5. Gateway Mastery IconGateway Mastery increase your gateway's range by 20 yards, and reduces the duration of the debuff placed on players using it by 15 seconds, making it a good choice when increased mobility is needed.
  6. Nether Ward IconNether Ward summons a shield lasting 3 seconds and reflecting back all harmful spells targeted at you. Has a second cooldown and it is extremely valuable when facing caster teams.
  7. Demon Armor IconDemon Armor increases max health by 5% and armour by 90%, making it an extremely useful choice against melee heavy teams.

Affliction Warlock PvP Talents

  1. Rampant Afflictions IconRampant Afflictions increase the target limit for Unstable Affliction IconUnstable Affliction to 3.
  2. Rot and Decay IconRot and Decay can be very useful in situations with high sustained damage intake. Combining this with Essence Drain IconEssence Drain greatly increases your survivability and sustainability and opens a lot of doors for soloing difficult content.
  3. Bane of Shadows IconBane of Shadows causes damage over time effects to strike an additional time for 20% of their original damage while active. This offers a little bit of extra burst damage on a short cooldown.
  4. Deathbolt IconDeathbolt is a second cooldown nuke that deals 40% of the total remaining damage over time effects on the target. It is generally used to catch people off guard and burst them.
  5. Soulshatter IconSoulshatter consumes up to the 5 nearest Corruption IconCorruptions dealing 10% of their maximum health and returning 1 Soul Shards for each enemy hit.
