re: Affliction Warlock (Level 85)

Affliction Warlock

Stat Priority

Intellect > Hit (until hit capped at 1742 /17%) > Haste > Critical Strike Rating > Mastery

Attack Rotation

Single target: Haunt > Demon Soul > Bane of Doom > Corruption > Unstable Affliction > Drain Soul (if target is below 25% health) > Shadowflame > Shadow Bolt
Always use Haunt and Demon Soul whenever they’ve cooled down.
Keep Bane of Doom, Corruption and Unstable Affliction up on the target at all times.
Make sure to use Curse of Elements if another class isn’t providing an identical debuff (CoE is also covered by Unholy DKs, Mut rogues and Boomkin.)

Two targets: Get your DoTs on a target them use (glyphed) soul swap to transfer them to the other.

Three or more targets: Use Soulburn: Seed of Corruption.

Remember to keep Dark Intent up on a healer (if you’re on progression) or other DPS (if you’re on farm content). Use your Doomguard for single-target fights or your Infernal for AOE fights, during burn phases.


Gem for intellect (Brilliant Inferno Ruby). Use split intellect/haste (Reckless Ember Topaz) in yellow sockets or split Intellect/Hit (Veiled Demonseye) in blue sockets in the socket bonus is +20 Int or +30 of another stat or more.
