Leveling Talent Tree and Build for Demonology Warlock

The build below is for sustained damage, ensuring a smooth and safe leveling process for solo play.

The second build possibility is focused on AoE dungeon grinding and forgoes the sustained damage you gain from the first imp build in favor of massive AoE burst through Metamorphosis IconMetamorphosis and the party buff provided by Demonic Pact IconDemonic Pact.


Leveling Rotation

For Demonology, you will still want to ensure that you maintain your DoTs on your target: Immolate IconImmolate, Corruption IconCorruption, and, if the fight goes on long enough, Curse of Doom IconCurse of Doom. If the fight will not go on long enough for Doom to go off, you should use Curse of Agony IconCurse of Agony instead.

Beyond your DoTs, you will want to use Incinerate IconIncinerate, if the Molten Core IconMolten Core buff is up, or Soul Fire IconSoul Fire, if the Decimation IconDecimation buff is up. If neither of these buffs is up, you should use Shadow Bolt IconShadow Bolt.


AoE Leveling Rotation as Demonology

After you apply your debuffs, you will want to run into melee range for Metamorphosis IconMetamorphosis and follow this priority:

  1. Immolation Aura IconImmolation Aura
  2. Shadow Cleave IconShadow Cleave
  3. Seed of Corruption IconSeed of Corruption

Pets for Leveling as Demonology

The best pet for Demonology will depend on the build you take. If you take the Fire Imp build, you will want to use your Imp. If you take the AoE build, you should use a Felguard.


List of Trainer Skills to Buy

It is important to buy all abilities as you level as they are cheap and Warlocks have quite a few abilities that are extremely powerful in certain situations.
