Gearing a Demonology Warlock

Welcome to our Gearing Page for Demonology Warlock, this section will cover everything you need to know about equipping your character correctly.

If you have a new piece of gear that you need gems and enchants advice for, you can find everything you need on our dedicated page below.


How To Effectively Compare Upgrades as an Demonology Warlock

Due to the simplicity of determining upgrades with a simulation in the current era of the game, we recommend using the popular Raidbots tool to determine which pieces of gear offer the most potential for your character. The main reason why this is a huge advantage is due to the huge number of variables that differ from character to character, such as Stat Quotients, and Scale Factors.

The Top Gear function can be especially useful, as it allows you to compare multiple items and item types to find the best combination of upgrades.

Learning to use the tools available will allow you to reach the most accurate conclusions with the least effort. It is highly recommended you avail yourself of these tools, and they will serve you well when evaluating items.



The Droptimizer feature from Raidbots lets you identify which dungeons and Raid Bosses you should spend your Bonus Rolls on. It simulates all of the potential upgrades in a raid or a dungeon, and lists the bosses/dungeons by rank order of how much DPS you can expect to gain from bonus rolling on it. We have a guide for it that you can access using the link below.


Valor and Item Upgrades

Valor can be used to increase the item level of any gear that drops from Mythic+ dungeons or the dungeon reward from the weekly chest up to 415, if you have achieved 2400 rating.

Trinkets for Demonology Warlock

Due to the prevalence of high item level trinkets via Mythic+, raiding, and PvP, there are a variety of suitable options when it comes to trinkets. It is always best to use Raidbots Top Gear to determine what your optimal trinkets are.

From dungeons, Spoils of Neltharus Icon Spoils of Neltharus is the only 2-minute trinket which can line up with Grimoire: Felguard Icon Grimoire: Felguard. If that is not a concern Irideus Fragment Icon Irideus Fragment offers strong burst on a 3-minute cooldown. There are not many passive options but Furious Ragefeather Icon Furious Ragefeather offers solid single-target damage, while Umbrelskul's Fractured Heart Icon Umbrelskul's Fractured Heart and Idol of Pure Decay Icon Idol of Pure Decay have limited multitarget capabilities.
