Shadow Bolt not in Affliction for SL

Recommended Posts

I have been redoing my Affliction warlock setup for raiding in Shadowlands.  When going over your page here I see where the information provided for Affliction shows Shadow Bolt as a filler listed along with Drain Soul option.  However, when putting together my setup in game Shadow Bolt is nowhere to be found, either in the talents or skills book.

I feel this is misleading for those of us already high level characters because from what I can find is Bliz removed it from the Affliction spec.  If SB is in use for lower level characters just coming up leveling, but when they get higher the spell is missing, there is no explanation for this.

Can some one please revisit this page and update or include a disclaimer about why its missing along with reasoning for including it to begin with?

Drain Soul is a talent that *replaces* Shadow Bolt. With the talent selected, Shadow Bolt will be removed from your warlock abilities and Drain Soul will appear in your Affliction spec abilities. It's written in the tooltip in-game, and explained on the talents page of the guide you referenced.

Thank you for your reply.  Sorry, I did not see this reply earlier but one of my guild mates explained this to me back in March.  Appreciate your input tho.

      <Trust> may be what you're looking for if you enjoy killing internet dragons with a group of like minded players! Currently we are 8/9 Heroic, soon to be stepping into Mythic ToS. We are recruiting to finish rounding out our raid team. <Trust> is located on the [US] Doomhammer/Baelgun pve servers, alliance side! Check us out!
      About Us:
      <Trust> is a recently formed guild, founded by a group of long time players that have been raiding together for a couple of years now. Founded out of a desire to continue raiding in a casual-progression manner, we work towards defeating mythic bosses. <Trust> is a raiding guild, first and foremost.
      Our Raids:
      <Trust> maintains a progression-oriented 2-day semi-casual raiding team. That's 'semi' as in we expect our team members to always prioritize life first; but not 'casual' as in we take downing bosses less seriously. We strive to maintain a balance of taking our progression raids seriously while having plenty of laughs along the way.
      Raid Schedule:
      Tuesday & Thursday: 5p – 8p server (8p – 11p eastern)
      Friday(optional): 5p – 8p server (8p – 11p eastern)
      <Trust> is looking for full time Resto Druid, Mages, Hunters, and Warlocks for our raid team. We are also open for good people to join as casual players, pvpers, with the option to join farm content or alt raids.
