WoW Shadowlands Destruction Warlock Guide

World of Warcraft

The masters of chaos rained fire from the sky to burn their enemies mercilessly.

The Destruction Warlock covers his enemies with powerful demon magic. Other damage specializations of the Warlock include the Affliction Warlock and the Demonology Warlock.

The most important changes

Curse of Speech, Curse of Weakness, and Curse of Exhaustion are now available for all Warlock specializations. You learn the Ritual of Doom ability at level 37, which begins a ritual that sacrifices a random participant to summon a Doomguard.

The ritual requires four additional allies besides yourself. The Doomguard stays for 15 minutes and has a small chance to break free and attack the party. The Eye of Killrog can be attacked by players again and is usable in rated PvP.

With five Soul Shards, we conjure a powerful Chaos Bolt that deals massive damage.

The former talent Demonic Circle is now an ability. In the Shadowlands, your Devastation, Summon Hellbeast, and Rain of Fire spells gain a second rank. Devastation runs two seconds longer, Hellbeast deals 100% more damage on impact, and Rain of Fire deals 10% more damage.

The level 45 talent Grimoire of Superiority has been replaced with the new talent Chaos Rain. The Blazing Fire talent has been reworked to temporarily increase Firebrand, Burn, and Conflagration damage by 30%. The talents Soul Fire (level 15), Shadow Fire (level 25), Cataclysm (level 35), and Fire and Brimstone (level 35) have been slightly reworked.

How to play the Destruction Warlock

Against single targets, you must keep Firebrand on the target at all times. When you have five Soul Shards, cast Chaos Lightning. Next up are Conflagration and Incinerate. Both of these abilities allow you to build up Soul Shards.

Every three minutes you can summon a hell beast to help you, which will strike at the destination and support you.

Against multiple targets, you’ll maintain Firebrand on up to three targets. Use Devastation to spread the high damage of Chaos Lightning across multiple targets. When Devastation is on cooldown, you can use Rain of Fire on three targets or more to spend Soul Shards.

On offensive cooldowns, you should always use Sinister Soul: Instability when it is available. Otherwise, you still have the option of summoning a Hell Beast.
