Best Gems for Affliction Warlock

With Phase 3 comes new gems for everyone. The new gems are of Epic rarity and while they will likely be expensive, they will be well-worth as they are direct upgrades to your current gems. For example, instead of the red gems giving you 9 Spell Power, the Epic versions give 12 Spell Power. The gems listed below are the only ones you need to worry about as a Warlock. If you do not see a gem here, then you do not need worry about it. As for the socket bonuses, only worry about them if they give 5+ Spell Power.

Note that on the PTR all Haste gems were in the game. It is assumed they will not be as they are not supposed to be until well down the road. However, if they are in, this list will be updated immediately.


Best Consumables for Affliction Warlock

There are countless amounts of consumables in TBC. This page will showcase each consumable in TBC that you can expect to use as a Warlock. The descriptions will elaborate on the cases in which each can be used. If you do not see a certain consumable on here, then you can expect to never use it.

  • Flask of Pure Death Icon Flask of Pure Death grants you 80 Spell Power for 2 hours. This is your main flask and you should be using it all the time.
  • Flask of Supreme Power Icon Flask of Supreme Power grants you 70 Spell Power for 2 hours. This is a cheaper alternative to the previous flask. Typically used for raids on super farm or if you cannot afford a Flask of Pure Death.
  • Brilliant Wizard Oil Icon Brilliant Wizard Oil grants you 36 Spell Power and 14 Crit Rating. This is the Oil you will use to coat your weapon.
  • Superior Wizard Oil Icon Superior Wizard Oil grants you 42 Spell Power. This is a cheaper alternative for Oils. Typically only used early game or as Affliction.
  • Destruction Potion Icon Destruction Potion grants you 2% Spell Crit and 120 Spell Power for 15 Seconds. Use this on cooldown with your other cooldowns, so long as you do not need Mana.
  • Dark Rune Icon Dark Rune restores Mana at the cost of your health. This is nice to have in Raid so you don not have to Life Tap. These are Bind on Equip, not on the global cooldown, and also share cooldown with your Healthstone Icon Healthstones and Flame Cap Icon Flame Caps.
  • Demonic Rune Icon Demonic Rune is the exact same thing as Dark Runes, except these are Bind on Pickup.
  • Poached Bluefish Icon Poached Bluefish grants you 23 Spell Power and 20 Spirit. This is your Food buff.
  • Blackened Basilisk Icon Blackened Basilisk provides the same stats as previous food, 23 Spell Power and 20 Spirit. This is another option of food buff.
  • Crunchy Serpent Icon Crunchy Serpent provides the same stats as previous foods, 23 Spell Power and 20 Spirit. This is another option of food buff.
  • Super Mana Potion Icon Super Mana Potion is your Mana potion. Use this frequently on longer fights to save you from Life Tapping. This should be always used during mass AoE.
  • Super Healing Potion Icon Super Healing Potion is your healing potion. Use this when your Healthstone is on cooldown and you are about to die.
  • Free Action Potion Icon Free Action Potion make you immune to all Stun and Movement Impairing effects for 30 seconds. This is not used too often, but used during the Kael'thas encounter and is also good for trash packs.
  • Invisibility Potion Icon Invisibility Potion makes you invisible for 18 seconds. These are rarely used, but can be used to skip certain parts of raids and dungeons.
