1. Tier 21 Set Bonuses for Affliction Warlock

The Tier 21 set bonuses focus on augmenting our primary DoT effects, Agony Icon Agony and Corruption Icon Corruption, to provide further utility and damage.

While the bonuses this tier do not provide an increase of an incredible magnitude, they do grant a solid and steady damage increase and are well worth seeking out and obtaining. The bonuses gain strength on encounters where multi-dotting is a priority, for example, the Coven of Shivarra encounter.
