Complete Guide Of WOW Dragonflight – RPGs haven’t had the Warlock class for very long, while World of Warcraft has had it from the start. Since the original MMO’s release, which was almost two decades ago, the class has seen many alterations.
The Warlock is back in the most recent World of Warcraft expansion, Dragonflight. Since Shadowlands, there have been some minor adjustments and enhancements as well as some significant adjustments to spells, skill trees, and demonic powers. In keeping with a long and strong Warlock heritage, it’s still one of the best classes to level, and those who select the Demonology spec are some of the most potent endgame casting classes in the game.
- It’s all about the demons, not just for the companionship they provide but also for the abilities they bestow. All Warlocks have some access to demons as pets, but demonologists are experts in this field and may call forth a wide variety of demons to fight for them either as allies or as the targets of destructive spells.
- One of the most difficult aspects of this specification is making the best use of demons and their associated skills. It possesses some respectable area-of-effect powers and is excellent for dealing damage to single targets.
- One drawback is that the Demonology Warlock relies heavily on their pets in most circumstances. Cast early and often because this spec takes some time to develop but is brutal once it does.
To use Soul Stones, summon specific pets, or cast particular spells, all Warlocks require Soul Shards. By using Shadow Bolt, the Demonology Warlock creates Soul Shards.
They are displayed next to your character’s health indicator. The most you can have at once is five.
Demons are available to all Warlocks, and one of the main benefits of being a Demonologist is having access to a wider range of more potent demons than your fellow Warlocks. Additionally, your demons will possess additional Talent Tree skills that other specs lack.
Some of the demons, like the Felguard and the Imp, can be called upon both as a temporary spell component and as a follower companion.
These aren’t the same demons, and while engaged in battle, you can have both of them active. The secret to managing your minions and the damage they deliver is finding the right combination.
In addition to their friends, the Demonologist has access to demons summoned as part of a spell and ejected automatically after a predetermined period of time. While some of these spells are available from the Warlock’s standard spellbook, some must be acquired through the Demonology Talent Tree.

The Starter Build option, which can be found in the bottom left of your Talent Tree screen, is another useful tool, especially for novice or returning players.
This provides a straightforward, straightforward setup and suggests where to put your Talent Points each time you level. If you have an original idea, you are always free to stray from it.
With the new Talent Trees in World of Warcraft, you have a lot of options to play with with as you level. This is a fundamental mid-level build that is equally useful in PvE and dungeons as your character develops for those who are new to the process. It is concentrated on skills unique to the Demonology build, which in this instance implies more demons.
Main Warlock Talent Tree

Every Warlock needs to prioritise some talents over others, some of which are better suited to individuals who subscribe to the Demonology school of thought.
When your Demonologist hits level 80, the aforementioned tree will look exactly like a finished Main Warlock Talent Tree. This one is meant to maximise your performance in difficult dungeons and raids. The previous levelling tree is expanded upon, but with specific additions.
The Demonology Raid Talent Tree
- Import String: BoQAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAggkEJSg0SLCSLJJkWAAAAAQLSSSIBSIRiUSLJyBIAAAAAAA
Once a Warlock reaches level 80, they can choose from a variety of exciting activities, and you can then alter their Talent Tree accordingly. In both instances, the standard Demonology levelling setup is used as a foundation upon which to develop.
This raid build emphasises the damage the Demonologist Warlock can deal with AoE damage and the Cleave ability in max-level dungeons and raids. It concentrates on the Felguard, the most potent demon in terms of melee damage.
The Mythic Plus Tree
- Import String: BoQAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAggkEJSg0SLCSLJJkWAAAAAQLCSIkIJSSiItkIhAAAAAAA
The Guillotine M+ build is created and aimed for Demonology Warlocks who wish to experience Mythic+ dungeons. Its name refers to the terrifying unique skill that is bestowed at the very bottom of the skill tree. Many of the elements and skills used in this build are also found in the AoE and Cleave build, but it is enhanced for Mythic+’s higher difficulty setting.
There is a red circle with a slash across it in the bottom centre of your Specialization screen, close to the “Apply Changes” button. To reset all of your specs at any time, hover your cursor over this. By right-clicking on specific talents that have previously been selected, you can also change them.
When levelling, Corruption and Shadowbolt are the spells to bear in mind the most. The first charges your Soul Shards, which you require to power your casting and summon demons, while the latter is a damage-over-time (DoT) spell.
Every Warlock has passive skills like Demonic Core and Soul Leech. You can locate these innate skills in your spell book but they don’t show up on the talent trees. The most deadly powers of the Warlock derive from them.
The finest companion demons for levelling are the Felguard and the Voidwalker, but keep in mind that your demons have a wide range of skills, many of which are situational. This rotation is predicated on you beginning with five soul shards, levelling up, and lacking some demons or spells at this time.
Always cast Demonbolt instantly when your Demonic Core is charging.
|Sequence||Spell or Ability||Description|
|1.||Curse of Weakness||An instant cast that slows your enemy down.|
|2.||Corruption||Uses shadow to damage the target, lasts 13 seconds.|
|3.||Call Dreadstalkers||These will attack the target for 12 seconds, after which they will fade and charge Demonic Core.|
|4.||Hand of Gul’dan||Summons Wild Imps to your side for extra DPS.|
|5.||Shadow Bolt||Sends a bolt of Shadow damage at the enemy and charges your soul shards. Repeat until Curse of Weakness and Corruption tick down.|
|6.||Demon Bolt||Time permitting, to recharge your shards.|
If anything is still standing at this time, you can finish by using Implosion to throw your imps into the fray and blowing them up.
Dungeons And Raids
While that Voidwalker might be excellent for wilderness questing, it is not a good idea to steal aggro away from the tank in a raid or dungeon. For Demonology Warlocks, corruption, which is employed frequently in PvE, is significantly less significant in dungeons.
Instead, you concentrate on casting spells to summon as many demons simultaneously as you can. You’ll discuss which curse to use and why with your other Warlocks and the raid commanders.
|Spell or Ability||Description|
|Hand of Gul’dan||Wild Imps for DPS and AoE damage, also can be sacrificed.|
|Power Siphon||Sacrifice Wild Imps for a power boost.|
|Grimoire: Felguard||Send this demon in for melee damage.|
|Guillotine||A ranged AoE ability your companion Felguard can use.|
|Nether Portal||Summons more demons and strengthens those you have.|
|Shadow Bolt||Recharges your soul shards.|
|Demon Bolt||Also recharges soul shards but can be powered by Demonic Core for the instant cast.|
|Summon Vilefiend||Another demon for AoE damage.|
|Call Dreadstalkers||Two more demons for more melee damage and to recharge Demonic Core.|
|Implosion||Send your Imps into the center of the fray for AoE damage.|
The most widely used Warlock macros centre on the use of Soulstones, as tradition would seem to imply. To cast a soulstone on a raid member only by moving your mouse over their portrait, copy and paste the following command.
/cast [target=mouseover,exists]  Soulstone
For a more Demonology-focused macro, this one casts Power Siphon to sacrifice an imp and cast another demon.
/use Power Siphon
/use Summon Petname
Your spell’s damage and power are increased by intellect.
Haste. increases attack and casting speed.
Mastery. The greater this stat, the more damage your demons can deal.
Versatility. More damage is delivered and less is avoided.
Make sure you have at least one Fierce Illuminated Diamond, or more if you can, because speed is crucial. The Quick Ysemerald is another another excellent option.
There are several gem options; your first decision should be anything that increases Intellect, followed by anything that includes Mastery or spell power.
The useful ring enchant known as a Seal of Critical Strike boosts the potency of your spells. Any time during the levelling procedure can use it.
Knowledge is always valuable. Machinists’ Brilliance, a Zandalarian enchantment that raises a weapon’s Intellect bonus by 18, is an illustration of a weapon enchant.
Demonology Warlock Gear
Prioritize any equipment that raises your Intellect or Haste as you level up. Here, tailors have a clear edge, and most Warlocks choose that profession in order to make their own armour.
The recommended gear is listed below if you want to raid or experience Mythic+ dungeons.
