Best MoP Remix Leveling Build for Affliction Warlock

Dungeon / AoE Open-World Build Raid / Cleave Build
3.1.

Dungeon / AoE Open-World Build

This build is intended for speed-leveling and sacrifices single-target damage to maximize your ability to make huge pulls and AoE damage. This works very well in dungeons with big pulls, or in outdoor content where you pull large groups of enemies.

3.2.

Raid / Cleave Build

This build assumes you are spending a lot of time in Raids, or doing Dungeons at a relatively normal pace where bosses take a decent amount of time to kill. For dungeons where you do large trash pack pulls, or pull trash on top of bosses, we suggest going the AoE build instead.

Swap Dread Touch Icon Dread Touch for Doom Blossom Icon Doom Blossom for more AoE at the expense of single target damage.
