Best Enchants for Affliction Warlocks in Wrath of the Lich King Classic

Enchants are very important and luckily very easy to obtain since you can buy most of the Enchantment scrolls off the Auction House for pretty cheap. However, there are a couple enchants that are locked behind faction Reputations. For your Head enchant you must be Exalted with Kirin Tor which is as simple as wearing their tabard while doing your Heroic Dungeons. As for your shoulder Enchant, this is also locked behind reputation. This one is Sons of Hodir and starts with a quest chain in K3 of the Storm Peaks zone called They Took Our Men!.

    3.2.

    Spellstone

    Use Create Spellstone IconCreate Spellstone on your weapon at all times. This will give you 1% extra damage to your damage-over-time spells, but also gives you 240 Haste rating.

    3.3.

    Potions

    • Potion of Speed Icon Potion of Speed
    • Potion of Wild Magic Icon Potion of Wild Magic

    Potions play an important role as Affliction since the crit from Potion of Wild Magic Icon Potion of Wild Magic is snapshotted into Corruption IconCorruption and naturally refreshing from Everlasting Affliction IconEverlasting Affliction. For this reason you want to prepop a Potion of Wild Magic Icon Potion of Wild Magic. Then you want to pop your Potion of Speed Icon Potion of Speed going into the execute phase.

    3.4.

    Food Buff

    • Fish Feast Icon Fish Feast
    • Firecracker Salmon Icon Firecracker Salmon or Tender Shoveltusk Steak Icon Tender Shoveltusk Steak

You can use a Fish Feast Icon Fish Feast, Firecracker Salmon Icon Firecracker Salmon, or Tender Shoveltusk Steak Icon Tender Shoveltusk Steak, which all give you the same amount, 46 spell Power and 40 Stamina. Most guilds have Fish Feast Icon Fish Feast, but it is suggested to always keep a stack of whatever is the cheaper food on your server out of the Firecracker Salmon Icon Firecracker Salmon or Tender Shoveltusk Steak Icon Tender Shoveltusk Steak. There is also a food called Snapper Extreme Icon Snapper Extreme, which gives you 40 Hit Rating and 40 Stamina. This food can come in handy if you are just shy of some Hit and want to finish it off.

    Profession Items for Affliction Warlocks

    4.1.

    Engineering

    • Saronite Bomb Icon Saronite Bomb
    • Global Thermal Sapper Charge Icon Global Thermal Sapper Charge

    Both of these items should be used on cooldown. It might not seem like much, but the damage adds up. Use Global Thermal Sapper Charge Icon Global Thermal Sapper Charge on AoE if you can and throw some Saronite Bomb Icon Saronite Bomb every 60 seconds. It does not have a cast time and also does not take a global to use it, so it is free damage.

    4.2.

    First Aid

    • Heavy Frostweave Bandage Icon Heavy Frostweave Bandage

    While these are minor and will see little use, it is always recommended to keep them on hand for the quick, Mana-free heal.
