General Information

If you have not yet done so, you will need to obtain the Heart of Azeroth Icon Heart of Azeroth before being able to choose any traits on armour. You can find out how to obtain it in our Heart of Azeroth guide, which acts as a compendium for all Heart-related information.

We will update it shortly after each patch, but you will need to check back frequently when making gear choices to ensure that you do not select traits based on old, outdated information.

4. Azerite Traits Rotation Changes and Details for Demonology Warlock

Some of your Azerite Traits in Battle For Azeroth can have a small effect on your rotation. They generally do not change the fundamentals, but they allow you to use their effects to squeeze just a little bit more damage out than your competition.

  • Forbidden Knowledge Icon Forbidden Knowledge's proc rate is relatively low given the cooldown of Call Dreadstalkers Icon Call Dreadstalkers, and it can be very helpful to track the buff using an AddOn (such as WeakAuras), as it can only be leveraged when you do not have stacks of Demonic Core Icon Demonic Core.
  • Supreme Commander Icon Supreme Commander should not be overly played around, as it is important to get as much damage and as many demons out as possible during Summon Demonic Tyrant Icon Summon Demonic Tyrant.
  • Shadow's Bite Icon Shadow's Bite can be a potent damage increase if you have Demonic Core Icon Demonic Core procs. Tracking this proc can be very helpful as it is predictable and easily anticipated.
