Classic Warlock DPS Enchants and Consumables

Last updated on Aug 23, 2019 at 12:29 by Impakt 10 comments

On this page, we list the best enchants, flasks, potions, and food you can get for your Warlock DPS in WoW Classic for PvE content.

1.

Foreword

One of the biggest differences between Classic and other iterations of WoW is the widespread usage of consumables. There are few limits to how many consumables you can use, and consumables can be incredibly powerful. Consumables can be extremely useful in all aspects of the game, and can be the difference in PvP, as well as raiding. Below is a list of all the possible consumables that you would be able to get and make use of as a Warlock.

One thing we cannot stress enough is that you do not *need* all of the possible consumables to play the game. While some of them are very powerful and highly recommended, you can use as many or as few as you want. All of the raids are possible without using every available consumable, although some guilds will choose to make use of lots of consumables to make the content easier. Similarly, you can PvP without consumables, but you may be at a disadvantage over other players who choose to make use of them.

World Buffs

World buffs are buffs that you will not be able to get on your own. Generally, these are buffs you will go and get with your guild if you want to stack all possible buffs for a raid. Generally, these require some sort of raid-related activity to obtain.

Best Raid Consumables for Warlocks

While this guide lists all of the potentially useful consumables that you could ever make use of, you most likely will not need all of them. This is the shorter list for what are considered the most important consumables to have while raiding. Most of these consumables are either buffs that will increase your damage or Mana potions/items that will give you bursts of Mana, allowing you to get more Shadow Bolt Icon Shadow Bolt casts off in a fight without needing to spend time and health using Life Tap Icon Life Tap.

  • Flask of Supreme Power Icon Flask of Supreme Power increases your spell damage by 150 for 2 hours, and persists through death, making it the most powerful consumable in the game for damage. Unfortunately, it is very expensive to create, and you can only have 1 flask active at any given time, so only use this for big occasions. It is crafted through Alchemy.
  • Greater Arcane Elixir Icon Greater Arcane Elixir increases your spell damage by 35 for 1 hour. This is crafted through Alchemy.
  • Elixir of Shadow Power Icon Elixir of Shadow Power increases your Shadow damage by 40 for 30 minutes. This is crafted through Alchemy.
  • Limited Invulnerability Potion Icon Limited Invulnerability Potion makes you immune to Physical attacks for 6 seconds. While this is not normally used in PvE, it is an incredibly important potion to have as a Warlock. ShadowBolt generates a large amount of threat, and popping one of these could be the difference between life and death if you accidentally pull aggro on an enemy. It is crafted through Alchemy.
  • Major Healthstone Icon Major Healthstone restores health and is created by Warlocks.
  • Heavy Runecloth Bandage Icon Heavy Runecloth Bandage restores health while you channel it and is crafted through First Aid.
  • Rumsey Rum Black Label Icon Rumsey Rum Black Label increases your Stamina by 15. It is sold by Barkeep Kelly in Hillsbrad Foothills.
  • Major Mana Potion Icon Major Mana Potion restores Mana and is crafted through Alchemy.
  • Demonic Rune Icon Demonic Rune restores Mana in exchange for health and drops from demons in the world. The best ones to farm are the Felguard Elites in the Blasted Lands.
  • Dark Rune Icon Dark Rune restores Mana in exchange for health, but shares a cooldown with Demonic Rune Icon Demonic Rune. These are BoE, meaning you can buy them on the AH. If you do not have lots of time, buy these instead of farming Demonic Runes.
  • Cerebral Cortex Compound Icon Cerebral Cortex Compound increases your Intellect by 25 for 1 hour. You get this item from completing Infallible Mind (repeatable quest) in the Blasted Lands.
  • Wizard Oil Icon Wizard Oil increases your spell damage by 24. This is crafted through Enchanting.
  • Runn Tum Tuber Surprise Icon Runn Tum Tuber Surprise increases your Intellect by 10. It is crafted through Cooking.

It is also important to realize that the first raid is Molten Core, where the most common type of damage you will take is Fire damage. Some of the harder bosses, such as Ragnaros, can deal lots of Fire damage, and you might want to consider having these defensive Fire Resistance consumables, just in case you need them.

All On-Use Consumables for Warlocks

5.1.

Health and Mana

Potions all share a cooldown. You cannot use multiple potions at the same time, and when you use a potion, it will start its cooldown for all potions. That being said, its still useful to have multiple potions in your bags for different situations. Being in combat does not affect your potion cooldown or availability.

5.2.

Damage

Engineering bombs share cooldowns as well, so you do not need many different ones.

  • Oil of Immolation Icon Oil of Immolation deals pulsing AoE Fire damage for 15 seconds. It is crafted through Alchemy.
  • Stratholme Holy Water Icon Stratholme Holy Water deals damage to Undead enemies around the targeted area when thrown. It drops from Stratholme.
  • Goblin Land Mine Icon Goblin Land Mine places a mine that deals Fire damage when triggered and is crafted through Engineering.
  • Goblin Sapper Charge Icon Goblin Sapper Charge instantly creates an explosion that deals AoE Fire damage to enemies around you. It is crafted through Engineering.
  • Crystal Charge Icon Crystal Charge deals Fire damage to enemies within 3 yards of the targeted area when thrown. It is a quest reward from Un'Goro Crater. This shares a cooldown with Engineering bombs, so is useful only if you are not an Engineer.
  • Dense Dynamite Icon Dense Dynamite deals Fire damage at a target location after a short cast. It is crafted through Engineering.
  • Thorium Grenade Icon Thorium Grenade deals Fire damage at a target location after a short cast and incapacitates enemies hit for 3 seconds. It is crafted through Engineering.
  • Iron Grenade Icon Iron Grenade deals Fire damage at a target location after a short cast and incapacitates enemies hit for 3 seconds. It is crafted through Engineering.

All Buff Consumables for Warlocks

6.1.

Flasks

Flasks have a restriction, which is that you can only have one flask active at any given time. It is also worth noting that flasks are some of the most expensive consumables in the game, since they require Black Lotus Icon Black Lotus to craft. You should use these sparingly, especially early on when gold will be very tight.

  • Flask of Supreme Power Icon Flask of Supreme Power increases your spell damage by 150 for 2 hours, and persists through death, making it the most powerful consumable in the game for damage. Unfortunately, it is very expensive to create, and you can only have 1 flask active at any given time, so only use this for big occasions. It is crafted through Alchemy.
6.2.

Offensive

6.3.

Defensive

6.4.

Food and Drink

Similar to flasks, you can only have one food and one drink active at any time.

6.5.

Specific Resistances

The same potion rules apply to the protection potions; once you use one, it will start a cooldown on all of your potions based on the cooldown of the potion you used.
