Season of Discovery Demonology Warlock DPS Talents and Runes
On this page, you will find out the best PvE talents for your Demonology Warlock in WoW Classic — Season of Discovery, as well as advised runes.
Demonology Warlock Talents
The level cap right now in Season of Discovery is level 40, meaning we still don't have all of our talent points, but atleast this gives us some more options. While there are many options for talents if you plan to DPS as a Demonology Warlock, this build pulled ahead of the other options. Put five points into Demonic Embrace to get some extra Stamina, but most importantly to open up further tiers in the tree. Next put two points into Improved Healthstone and three points into Fel Intellect. These will make your Healthstones heal for more and give your demon some more mana. After that put three points into Improved Sayaad. This makes your Succubus/Incubus deal 10% more damage with their Lash of Pain. Then put one point into Fel Domination to reduce the casting time the next time you summon your demon. This is helpful for whenever your Succubus/Incubus dies. This talent also synergizes extrememely well with another talent called Master Summoner. After that put three points into Fel Stamina to give your Succubus/Incubus 9% more Stamina, but more importantly to drop down to the next tier where you will pick up Master Summoner for the quick summon that we just talked about and Unholy Power which is an amazing talent that buffs your demon making it deal 20% more damage with it's melee attacks. After that get Demonic Sacrifice, which won't be used much outside of using it to sacrifice your Imp to get more Fire damage when you're AoE'ing with Hellfire, but you also need this point in order to get Soul Link. Then put five points into Master Demonologist as this will increase your damage by 10% whenever you have your Succubus/Incubus out. Lastly put your final point into Soul Link. This not only makes you super tanky but also buffs both you and your demons damage by 3%.
Recommended Rune Engravings
- Gloves — Chaos Bolt
- Pants — Incinerate
- Chest — Demonic Tactics
- Belt — Shadow and Flame
- Boot — Demonic Knowledge
While there are many options of runes this phase, the ones above do the most damage and sim by far the highest if you plan to DPS as a Demonology Warlock. Incinerate is your main filler and will be used more than any other spell in your arsenal and mandatory. It deals much more damage than Shadow Bolt and much cheaper on mana, making you have to Life Tap less. Chaos Bolt is the hardest hitting spell in the entire game and mandatory for the build. Demonic Tactics will increase your crit by 10%. Shadow and Flame makes it so whenever you crit with your Fire and Shadow spells, you will get a 10% buff to your Fire or Shadow damage, depending on which one crit, for 10 seconds. Demonic Knowledge increases your spell damage by 10% of your current demons total Stamina and Intellect. For example, if your pet has 50 Stamina and 50 Intellect, that equates to a total of 100, therefore you would gain 10 spell damage. This is also buffed by Blessing of Kings.
More Engravings are likely to come out as we reach higher level caps, so make sure to checkout our general Runes guide to get a better understanding of what all tools you have available to your Paladin.
