Affliction Warlock Rotation

As a Warlock, your main job is to do as much damage as you can, without pulling threat and killing yourself, or worse, wiping the raid. Below, you can find a rundown of the rotation for Affliction Warlocks in TBC Classic.

  1. Curse of the Elements IconCurse of the Elements, unless there is another Affliction Warlock in the raid and he is Elements, then this allows you to Curse of Doom IconCurse of Doom.
  2. Unstable Affliction IconUnstable Affliction (if specced)
  3. Corruption IconCorruption
  4. Siphon Life IconSiphon Life
  5. Immolate IconImmolate, if you have Improved Scorch IconImproved Scorch from a Fire Mage.
  6. Shadow Bolt IconShadow Bolt

It is vital to your success as an Affliction Warlock to ensure that you have as much uptime on your DoTs as humanly possible. We suggest to download an addon or Weak Aura to help keep track of your DoT timers.
