Class Overview

Affliction Warlocks excel at sustaining high single-target and multiple-target damage, but they lack the burst damage that other Warlock specialisations have.

Affliction Warlocks, as all Warlocks have a number of minions that they can use and each of them is bringing a number of useful abilities to a raid. Also, Warlocks have the Demonic Gateway Icon Demonic Gateway ability, which will, no doubt, come in handy in many situations.
