Hello, I'm new to the forums but I'm making this post because I know the pains of destruction warlocks in pvp very well since wod launch. I'm writing this to show you destruction can be just as powerful as that frost dk or that feral druid.

You will literally dominate 1v1 and it can take as much as 3 people to bring you down. I'm aware that bliz will likely nerf this playstyle if many people start using it but I wanted my fellow warlocks to share in the fun regardless.

I apologize in advance if this has already been posted.


Ember tap

Mortal coil

Soul link(gives demonic sac 20% max hp bonus)

Demonic sacrifice

Archimonde's vengeance

Charred remains


Improved ember tap

Improved healthstone



Sac the voidwalker

At start of fight, time an ember tap before you start taking damage. Since we took the ember tap talent in tier 1, it will only use half an ember. Immolate the target and throw out as much conflag/incinerates as possible. Since we took charred remains, you will gain embers very fast. Use a fear for good measure if necessary and keep ember tap on all the time when not at full health. Ember tap will be healing you for 3% of your maximum health PER SECOND which translates to about 13-15k hps. You will have 4 defensive cooldowns, healthstone, shadow bulwark, the 40% damage reduction one and mortal coil. Rotate those for unlimited survivability. You will never die.

As for damage, build up 4 embers. Yes you will be able to build up 4 embers even while keeping ember tap up 100 percent of the time because of charred remains. After you have four embers, throw out a fear, make sure they don't trinket, then pop dark soul and cast one chaose bolt, two if they are far enough away that the first chaos bolt wont hit and break the fear before you're done casting second one. Cast mortal coil directly after the last chaos bolt to give yourself time to cast another chaos bolt. If all went according to plan, opponent should be in shadowburn health range or very close. Build up at least two embers before casting another chaos bolt because you always want to have an ember for shadowburn to kill, since your incinerates will only tickle.

You will now survive any 1v1 encounter and most of the time be able to kill your opponent. Go enjoy your duels and how everyone goes "wtf, what are you?" I heard plenty of those today outside org after defeating everything from frost dks to ferals to windwalker monks. Some classes are a bit tricky to handle but there are special strategies for taking them down. I'll post in more detail if this thread gets enough attention.

Thank you for reading, good night.

      Faction: Alliance
      Realm: Thunderhorn
      Raid days/times: Wed/Thur - 20:30-23:30 with a possible third day at the start of a new tier or if we're close to a boss kill.
      Discord - Most of our communication is done through voice channels in our Discord.
      Contact: PinkFap#2713

      Current recruitment needs:
      Mostly looking for good ranged DPS of any class and melee of a select few classes to round out our roster.
      For our most up-to-date recruitment needs please check our WoWProgress page.

      For our history and a proper understanding of what we're about you can go to this page on our website.
      I strongly recommend you give that a read before applying.

      <Shiny Happy People> Is looking for the best of the worst to join us in Heroic raiding. We're looking for non-shit, banter-loving, trash-talkers to tear up Heroic raids, M+ and the occasional semi-serious PvP endeavour. We're long-time friends and former hardcore raiders going as far back as Vanilla. We're going semi-hardcore for BFA to enjoy ourselves better and play the game under our own more laid back rules. This means 2-3 days a week of raids with a steady progression and to make room for plenty of other activities. Our guild is situated on EU Thunderhorn but we have members on different realms, with a large cluster on Maelstrom. Because of this we see our Discord channel as our actual guild. And so you'll find most of the communication and organization to be done through Discord.

      For more information you can visit our website.
      For questions you can either contact me directly on Bnet PinkFap#2713 or join our Discord.

      Hi everyone,

      We are a guild that transferred from Alexstrasza to join the progression raiding scene as that server is very low population now. We are currently 8/8N and 4/8H uldir, and looking to move into heroics soon and mythic just after. 

      We do more than just raid, we love to do keys, transmog runs, and even some PvP. We have a large range of players from several walks of life and have a unique and fun atmosphere, we are friendly and love helping people. 

      We are looking for a few more members for our Sunday/Monday 5-8pm PST, and our tue/third 5-8pm PST. If anyone is interested in raid leading that will work too.

      We are primarily east coast based but have a plethora of players that are on at all times of day.

      Main needs for our raid team:
      ranged dps
      Exceptional players

      Of course all players as welcome as we do other guild activities such as world PVP, keys, xmog and other social activities.

      So come join this very active guild and we hope to hear from you.

      If you would like more information please add my btag at Kaatra#5865.

      I look forward to hearing from all of you.

      <Protectorate of the Lion> Is a laid back guild filled with kind and active players going into BfA. While we are sitting around 115 members, we make sure to keep people from getting lost in the crowd. Everyone has a place here! We have class leaders to help new or returning players get better acquainted with their specs! We also do PVP a lot as well as weekly raiding Friday/Saturday/Sunday! We have an RP campaign kind of like a band of brothers group going through Dark shore currently trying to rescue survivors and recover fallen Lions. Our story is a Flexastructured meaning we start with a direction we'll head and the rest is character driven instead of railroading, we're all about character development and discovery. We have an active Discord aswell! Join today and defend the Alliance.
