Warlock Leveling Guide

23 posts in this topic

One thing I would like to mention about destro locks is that you did not include soulburn in the rotation. As you are killing a lot of enemies quickly, soulburning can give a lot of burning embers back, and it has a high DPET. My current (level 89) rotation, then allows a chaos bolt and shadowburn once per fight, as long as I have over 1 ember to start with. The Normally generated embers from out rotation also count, so eventually, one caps on embers while still doing a lot of damage quickly.

Thank you for this, I added a mention of Shadowburn in the Destruction part of the guide ;)

I also reccomend demo locks being in dark apot at all times its faster and safer (use wrathguard on big AOE pulls use its ultimate) I take on 6-10mobs at a time and not drop below 80% hp thanks to the shield. If you find yourself in a aoe situation and everything is on cd use AOE version of that life spell. So far im level 89 almost 90 and this has not failed me yet. Much faster than one mob at a time and 2second cast times with dark bolt or w/e its called.

The minor Glyph of Nightmares is very handy. Riding over water spares so much time and makes you faster than buffing the unending breath.

Thank you soooo much for all these guides. I just logged onto my warlock (who is butt-naked and has no gear), and was having fun trying to get enough gold to buy my gear back from my mail box (C.O.D.ed by customer service to restore all the items I vendored).

I was quite confused, since I hadn't played on my warlock since the early Cata, and all of these guides really helped me out, especially the one about what changed.

You guys are awesome. <3

Thanks for removing the leveling info from 1-85. Guess I will have to stop telling people to use this site...;9

The only classes for which we've ever had leveling info from 1 to 85 were Priests, Rogues, and Shamans. The Warlock leveling guide has always been only 85-90.

For the Destruction Leveling, you should always open with Incinerate or Chaos Bolt if you have 3+ Burning Embers.  The travel time of these 2 spells allows you to cast Immolate as your 2nd spell and have both spells hit almost simultaneously.  For 3+ mobs you can open with a Fire and Brimstone Immolate.  For single and 2 mobs, Incinerate or Chaos bolt, then Immolate.

Many of the links that led to wowdb gave me 'an error occurred while processing your request, and an error occurred while dealing with that, so YOU LOSE!'

 

ok, not really. (tho that would be a cool message.)  But the double error, yes. This happened when trying to look at the talents and glyphs, and then I was trying just anything to see if it went through.

This needs to be updated to reflect the resent patch change, for example Demon skin is now a level 75 talent, before it was a level 45 talent.

Gonna update this for 7.1.5?

Very likely that we will where needed yes, we're just trying to ensure that all updates move as quickly as possible to the spec guides for now. Sorry for the delay, but there is a much larger demand ATM for the 110 guides!

Would be great to see this updated, just looking at playing my Warlock and was sad to see this wasn't up to date.

Hey there! 

Sorry about that, I've put in a note for all the leveling guides to be updated but it's a pretty low priority for many of the writers at the moment due to the necessity of these guides now compared to at launch. Essentially, you can level as any Warlock spec, because relics/AP no longer matter (due to AK being able to hit 15 instantly). Many of the guides focused on a "best" spec mainly due to their need to focus AP into the weapons right at the start of the xpac.

Hope this helps and sorry for the delay in updating! If you have questions that aren't in the guide, I can hopefully help with those :)

      Hello,
      Adelante is currently recruiting DPS & Heals, however, all competent players will be considered.  We are a Horde guild on Arthas and our current progression is 10/10H NH 6/7M EN and 3/3H TOV.  As far as classes go we do not have a Moonkin, Mage, Feral Druid, or any type of Monk. We only raid two nights a week, Tuesday and Wednesday from 7:00 PM until 11:00 PM Eastern.  Thursday is not considered a raid night, but we will often clear Heroic and Normal on this evening for AP and it is not required. We are pushing progression on Il'gynoth, and look forward to finishing off EN then moving on to Nighthold, we will be intermittently working on Mythic TOV.
      From you, we would expect 100% attendance during your trial period; after that, if you cannot make a raid or will be late it is mandatory to keep the raid leader updated.  In order to continue making good progression while raiding only two nights a week, we expect that you know your class inside-out and will research any bosses you are unfamiliar with prior to raids.
      If you are interested, please PM me (violentravi#1826) or recruiting officer Sepsis (tuxedomask#1712) in game.  However, if you have time (which goes a long way) for us to give you a real evaluation there is a short forum to fill out linked on our discord: https://discord.gg/JMVuYRW
       
      Thank you for your consideration
      Xoxo

      Sindorei Council, a family-friendly and socially active guild has been active since 7/24/2007 (BC drop), currently 7/7 (H)EN, 2/3 (H)ToV, and 10/10, 3/10(H) NH.  Seeking DPS (notably ranged) for completion of Heroic and preparation for 7.2.    
      We are not a hardcore progression guild - have never been and don't seek to create that atmosphere.  We are an incredibly welcoming social guild with a core raid component of very skilled players who have enough real-life going on that one night/week (occasionally 2) is what we push for.   We've reached our current raid progression on essentially one night/week. 
      Are you a good fit?  If you enjoy playing your class very well, are reliable to be on at the given time(s), yearn for a fun PG atmosphere in Gchat and Discord with mostly adults, and feel like one (occasionally 2) night per week is ideal for the time you want to put into raiding then we may be a good fit for you.  We help others get better and push people to have fun in guild, raiding or not ( be it through Questing, M+, WQ's, Roics, Pet Battles, etc.). We know our members' backstories and strive to make our guild a family.  Very active FB page and Discord.  
      Schedule:   Current main core raid night is Thursday from 7:30 EST - 10:30 EST (Bloodhoof Server time).  Sunday nights are an alternative night for us.
      Progress:  7/7 (H)EN, 2/3 (H)ToV, 10/10 NH, 3/10 (H)NH
      Loot:  All Personal - hand down to people who need 
      NEEDS: 
      - SPriest
      - Boomkin
      - Hunter
      - Another skilled dps that is comfortable off spec as Tank works well also (Feral/Guardian, WW/BM, etc.)
      Interested?:
      BTAG: Lorienawk#1319 or Mango#1525.  
      Thanks and Happy Hunting!
