Spec Overview / Place in the Current Meta for Demonology Warlocks

Demonology Warlocks are the strongest Warlock spec right now. They have the same crowd control as all the other specs, but they are much harder to kill. They have utility in the form of Fear Icon Fear and a passive defensive, Soul Link Icon Soul Link, that makes them a bad target to focus. If the Demonology Warlock is left unchecked, they can easily burst an enemy down in seconds.

1.1.

Strengths of Demonology Warlocks

  • Great control
  • Decent mobility
  • Strong consistent damage
1.2.

Weaknesses of Demonology Warlocks

  • Limited mobility
  • Predictable burst damage
  • Very few defensive cooldowns

The stat priority for Demonology Warlock in PvP is as follows:

  1. Intellect;
  2. Haste;
  3. Versatility;
  4. Critical Strike;
  5. Mastery.

Intellect is the best stat in all situations. Haste is the strongest secondary stat at all times due to it reducing the Global Cooldown on abilities and reducing your cast time. Versatility is also strong because it increases the damage you deal and reduces the damage you take.

3.

Azerite Essences for Demonology Warlocks

Essences allow players to customize their characters while adding a new ability to use. This section will cover the best overall Azerite Essences for Demonology Warlocks in PvP. For a general guide to all the essences, as well as how to obtain them and increase their ranks, check out our Essence Guide.

3.1.

Major Essences

The Crucible of Flame Icon The Crucible of Flame is a great Major Essence. This essence grants the Major Power, Concentrated Flame Icon Concentrated Flame. Destruction Warlocks have multiple abilities that they have to cast. This gives you strong instant damage you can use very often throughout an arena match.

Conflict and Strife Icon Conflict and Strife is another solid Major Essence to have. Conflict Icon Conflict gives you Nether Ward Icon Nether Ward as a baseline ability. Because Nether Ward is used in matchups against spell casters, this should be used when playing against teams with spell damage.

Memory of Lucid Dreams Icon Memory of Lucid Dreams increases your Soul Shard regeneration rate by 100%. This will increase your sustained damage output. Both the Major and Minor Powers from this trait are very powerful.

3.2.

Minor Essences

In addition to having a Major Essence, you can choose two Minor Essences to place in your neck at Heart of Azeroth Levels 55 and 65.

Memory of Lucid Dreams Icon Memory of Lucid Dreams gives your spells and abilities a chance to refund Soul Shards you used and heal you. This is great for increasing your damage, as you will frequently be refunded Soul Shards throughout a match.

Vision of Perfection Icon Vision of Perfection reduces the cooldown of Summon Demonic Tyrant Icon Summon Demonic Tyrant. This is your primary burst cooldown that already has a relatively short cooldown. Being able to use Demonic Tyrant more often will give you more windows of opportunity to get a kill.

4.

Azerite Traits for Demonology Warlocks

Azerite traits are unlocked in you helm, shoulders and chest. With each Azerite level in your neck, you get closer to unlocking the center trait in your gear. These traits vary from increasing damage or healing of certain abilities to helping increase your survivability.

Gear Recommendations

5.1.

General Guidelines

In general, Demonology Warlocks want to get trinkets that line up well with Summon Demonic Tyrant Icon Summon Demonic Tyrant. These trinkets can have a passive or on-use effect. The stat you want to be increasing is Intellect. The reason you want to increase Intellect is because it drastically increases your overall damage output.

To be successful in 3v3 arena, you need to have at least 2 pieces of gear with the Shadow's Bite Icon Shadow's Bite or Baleful Invocation Icon Baleful Invocation traits. You will also want either Earthlink Icon Earthlink or Heed My Call Icon Heed My Call in the second tier.

Below, we list the items that have these traits.

5.1.1.

Helms

5.1.2.

Shoulders

5.1.3.

Chest

5.2.

Notorious Gladiator's Maledict Icon Notorious Gladiator's Maledict is absolutely the best trinket you can have. The on-use damage and healing absorption is capable of forcing defensives by itself. This can be used by itself or while you are using your burst rotation to force multiple cooldowns out of enemy teams.

Notorious Gladiator's Safeguard Icon Notorious Gladiator's Safeguard is a mandatory trinket if you think the enemy team can swap to you and kill you. This provides an additional defensive for when you drop to low health. If you do not think a team will swap to you and kill you, you can use replace this one with any of the trinkets below.

Notorious Gladiator's Badge Icon Notorious Gladiator's Badge is strong for the Versatility and the on-use Intellect effect. The 2-minute cooldown is not the same cooldown as Summon Demonic Tyrant Icon Summon Demonic Tyrant, but it should still be used every time you want to use your burst rotation.

Notorious Gladiator's Insignia Icon Notorious Gladiator's Insignia has a good amount of Versatility on it and has a passive effect. This effect increases your Intellect. This increases your sustained damage.

5.3.

Weapon Enchant

Enchant Weapon - Quick Navigation Icon Enchant Weapon - Quick Navigation is the best weapon enchants. This enchant provides a proc that gives you more Haste. This reduces the cast time of your important spells and results in an increase to your overall damage.

6.1.

Tier 1 (Level 15) Talents

Against teams with 2 melee on it, Dreadlash Icon Dreadlash is the best choice in this tier. This increases your spread damage when the enemy team is stacked.

6.2.

Tier 2 (Level 30) Talents

Power Siphon Icon Power Siphon is the best choice in this tier. This gives you more on-demand damage by sacrificing two of your imps. This results in two charges of Demonic Core Icon Demonic Core, giving you instant Demonbolt Icon Demonbolts.

6.3.

Tier 3 (Level 45) Talents

Demon Skin Icon Demon Skin is the best choice in this tier. This defensive talent allows you to passively heal throughout an arena match. This is crucial for your survivability against most teams.

6.4.

Tier 4 (Level 60) Talents

Soul Strike Icon Soul Strike is the best choice in this tier. This is a strong talent that gives you more on-demand damage and generates a Soul Shard.

Quick note: you should already be using this ability off cooldown, but you should also be using it to kill Shaman totems

6.5.

Tier 5 (Level 75) Talents

If you are playing against at least one caster, Mortal Coil Icon Mortal Coil is the best choice in this tier. This gives you extra control over the enemy caster(s) with instant crowd control.

If you are playing a team with two melee that will be focusing you, Demonic Circle Icon Demonic Circle is the best choice in this tier. This will make it easier for you to avoid or get away from teams when using their burst cooldowns.

6.6.

Tier 6 (Level 90) Talents

Inner Demons Icon Inner Demons is the best choice in this tier. This talent passively increases your sustained damage by summoning a Wild Imp every 12 seconds.

6.7.

Tier 7 (Level 100) Talents

Sacrificed Souls Icon Sacrificed Souls is the best choice in this tier. This will increase your overall sustained damage output.

7.

PvP Talents for Demonology Warlocks

The first PvP talent tier will give you a choice between Gladiator's Medallion Icon Gladiator's Medallion, Relentless Icon Relentless, and Adaptation Icon Adaptation. Gladiator's Medallion Icon Gladiator's Medallion is the best choice in this tier. It is great for removing crowd control on you that your healer cannot dispel. You will normally save your trinket for a stun, followed by Demonic Circle: Teleport Icon Demonic Circle: Teleport.

You can choose 3 of the following PvP talents. Each of them has their uses, but some are better for certain strategies than others. The top three choices are the most useful, but can be replaced with other PvP talents, depending on your team's goal.

Call Felhunter Icon Call Felhunter gives you an interrupt that locks an enemy in that school for 6 seconds. This PvP talent is crucial to stop incoming crowd control or, more importantly, to interrupt a healer that is casting a powerful spell.

Master Summoner Icon Master Summoner makes your Call Dreadstalkers Icon Call Dreadstalkers instant. This is crucial to increase your sustained damage.

Nether Ward Icon Nether Ward surrounds the caster with a shield that last 3 sec, reflecting all harmful spells cast on you. This is a crucial talent to take against all casters. You also want to use this talent versus teams with a Shaman, Death Knight or Demon Hunter. This is because their kicks are magical and this will prevent you from being interrupted while it is active. If you are using the Conflict and Strife Icon Conflict and Strife Major Essence, you will have Nether Ward Icon Nether Ward as a baseline ability. Continue down the list of PvP talents for more PvP talent options.

Call Fel Lord Icon Call Fel Lord summons a Fel Lord at a location that will stun anyone that enters its ring. This ability is crucial against melee who try to ignore it. This also increases your survivability if you stand by your Fel Lord. You should replace Nether Ward Icon Nether Ward for this PvP talent.

Curse of Weakness Icon Curse of Weakness reduces the Physical damage dealt by the player effected with this curse. This will prevent enemy melee from dealing their maximum damage when they use burst cooldowns. You should replace Nether Ward Icon Nether Ward with this PvP talent.

Racial Bonuses for Demonology Warlocks

Racial bonuses can provide interesting PvP benefits. Here are the best races to choose for each faction. The races are sorted from highest impact in arena to lowest. However, all races below have their own unique ways of making an impact in a PvP match.

8.1.

Horde

8.1.1.

Orc

The Orc racial bonus (Hardiness Icon Hardiness) is great for reducing the duration of stuns on you. This is absolutely the best Horde racial to have if you are primarily focusing on PvP. In addition to Hardiness, Orcs also have the Blood Fury Icon Blood Fury racial. This is off the global cooldown and should be used when you are using your burst rotation.

8.1.2.

Undead

The Undead racial bonus (Will of the Forsaken Icon Will of the Forsaken) removes any Charm, Fear or Sleep effect from you. This is a great racial versus specializations, like Destruction Warlocks, that are able to fear you constantly throughout an arena match. It is important to note that this does share a 30-second cooldown with Gladiator's Medallion Icon Gladiator's Medallion, so it is advised to only use it when you do not want to waste Gladiators Medallion.

8.1.3.

Troll

The Troll racial bonus (Berserking Icon Berserking) grants you a large amount of Haste. You should activate this ability right before you are using important cooldowns or to cast crowd control faster. Another racial to note is Da Voodoo Shuffle Icon Da Voodoo Shuffle. This significantly reduces the duration of slows on you and will help when kiting enemy players that are focusing you.

8.2.

Alliance

8.2.1.

Human

The Human racial bonus (Every Man for Himself Icon Every Man for Himself) is a great way to get out of stuns. If you think you will be the focus target versus teams with multiple stuns, this race allows you to play Relentless Icon Relentless. This will help increase your overall survivability. It is also important to note that Humans also have The Human Spirit Icon The Human Spirit. This increases your secondary stats (Haste, Critical Strike, Mastery, Versatility). This is another beneficial reason to play Human.

8.2.2.

Void Elf

The most important part of being a Void Elf is the Preternatural Calm Icon Preternatural Calm racial. This causes your spell casts to no longer be delayed when taking damage. This is great, because even when you are the primary target, you will still be able to deal maximum damage and cast crowd control. Spatial Rift Icon Spatial Rift can also be mentioned, because the teleport it provides gives you additional mobility and will help your survivability.

8.2.3.

Dwarf

The Dwarf racial bonus (Stoneform Icon Stoneform) removes Poison, Disease, Magic, and bleed effects. In addition to this, it reduces all Physical damage taken by 10%. This racial can make a large impact versus teams that have multiple Bleed or Magical damage over time abilities. It is also important to note that this racial lines up with the cooldown from Maledict trinkets and can be used to remove the absorption that is placed on you from Maledict. Another example is removing bleeds versus Assassination Rogues or Feral Druids that are focusing you. This will significantly slow down the damage being dealt to you.

8.2.4.

Gnome

The Gnome racial bonus (Escape Artist Icon Escape Artist) removes any movement speed reduction effects on you. With only a 1-minute cooldown, this can be used both defensively or offensively. You can use this to help kite incoming damage or use it to remove slows on you while chasing down an enemy. Another racial that Gnome provides is Expansive Mind Icon Expansive Mind. This will increase your maximum Mana, which helps with not running out of resources.

9.

Playstyle for Demonology Warlocks

The Demonology Warlock has one role when in an Arena: survive. Demonology Warlocks have powerful crowd control in the forms of Fear Icon Fear, Mortal Coil Icon Mortal Coil, and Axe Toss Icon Axe Toss. On top of this, they have passive defensives, such as Soul Link Icon Soul Link, that make them very hard to kill. Although they focus on surviving and peeling for their team, they also have strong sustained and burst damage. If a Demonology is able to free-cast abilities, they can easily use their pets and artifact weapon to quickly kill an enemy.

9.1.

Before Gates Open

Have a plan for who you will be mainly using your crowd control on. Demonology Warlocks have Fear Icon Fear, which is very powerful.

9.2.

Offensive Rotation

9.2.1.

The Opener

The opener refers to your team's opening crowd control chain and damage done as soon as you get out of the gates. The main goal in the opener is to force your enemies to use their cooldowns.

If the enemy healer uses their trinket in the opener, they are in trouble. In the opener, Demonology Warlocks should focus on putting down a Demonic Gateway Icon Demonic Gateway and place your Demonic Circle Icon Demonic Circle in a safe spot behind a pillar.

This is the rotation you should use on your target at the beginning of the game.

  1. Cast Demonic Gateway Icon Demonic Gateway from one side of the map to the other.
  2. Use Demonic Circle Icon Demonic Circle to make it easier to get away from enemies.
  3. Use Fear Icon Fear to get away from enemies or on the enemy healer.
  4. Generate Soul Shards by using Shadow Bolt Icon Shadow Bolt and Soul Strike Icon Soul Strike.
  5. Use Call Dreadstalkers Icon Call Dreadstalkers off cooldown.
  6. Use your Felguard's special ability, Felstorm Icon Felstorm off cooldown.
  7. Use Demonbolt Icon Demonbolt when you get a Demonic Core Icon Demonic Core proc and you have 3 or less Soul Shards.
  8. Cast Hand of Gul'dan Icon Hand of Gul'dan when you have 3 or more Soul Shards.
    • Hand of Gul'dan will summon Wild Imps for each Soul Shard used to cast it.
  9. Get crowd control on the enemy healer (you can use Fear Icon Fear, Mortal Coil Icon Mortal Coil, Axe Toss Icon Axe Toss or have a teammate do this).
  10. Use your burst rotation.
9.2.2.

Burst Damage

When you have the enemy healer in crowd control and you are trying to kill an enemy, you use your burst damage.

  1. You will want 2+ Wild Imps active before you start bursting.
  2. Use Power Siphon Icon Power Siphon.
  3. Use Demonic Strength Icon Demonic Strength.
  4. Use Demonbolt Icon Demonbolt.
  5. Use Call Dreadstalkers Icon Call Dreadstalkers.
  6. Use Summon Demonic Tyrant Icon Summon Demonic Tyrant.
  7. Use Memory of Lucid Dreams Icon Memory of Lucid Dreams if you are using the Major Essence and need to generate Soul Shards.
  8. Use Hand of Gul'dan Icon Hand of Gul'dan at 3+ Soul Shards.
  9. Use Soul Strike Icon Soul Strike.
  10. Use Demonbolt Icon Demonbolt.
  11. Use Concentrated Flame Icon Concentrated Flameif you are using the Major Essence.
  12. Use Hand of Gul'dan Icon Hand of Gul'dan.
  13. Use Implosion Icon Implosion if your target is at low health.

The great part about Demonology Warlocks, is that you do not have to wait long to use this burst rotation again. This rotation, except for Summon Demonic Tyrant Icon Summon Demonic Tyrant, can be used every minute.

9.2.3.

Sustained damage

Sustained damage is damage you do when your burst cooldowns are not available.

  1. Generate Soul Shards by using Shadow Bolt Icon Shadow Bolt and Soul Strike Icon Soul Strike.
  2. Use Soul Strike Icon Soul Strike off cooldown.
  3. Use Concentrated Flame Icon Concentrated Flameif you are using the Major Essence.
  4. Use Call Dreadstalkers Icon Call Dreadstalkers off cooldown.
  5. Use your Felguard's special ability, Felstorm Icon Felstorm off cooldown.
  6. Use Demonbolt Icon Demonbolt when you get a Demonic Core Icon Demonic Core proc and you have 3 or less Soul Shards.
  7. Use Memory of Lucid Dreams Icon Memory of Lucid Dreams if you are using the Major Essence and need to generate Soul Shards.
  8. Cast Hand of Gul'dan Icon Hand of Gul'dan when you have 3 or more Soul Shards.
9.3.

Defensive Techniques

Soul Link Icon Soul Link is your main defensive ability. This ability splits the damage between you and your pet. For this reason, it is very important to keep your pet alive. If you find that the enemy team is focusing your pet, try to get away and re-summon it or have your healer keep it alive.

Call Fel Lord Icon Call Fel Lord is another strong defensive ability. If you are being focused by two melee, use this and stand in the ring. The Call Fel Lord Icon Call Fel Lord will consistently stun and deal damage. If the enemy team tries to ignore it, they will likely have to run away or use important defensive cooldowns.

Fear Icon Fear also has defensive uses. It might be hard to cast this if the enemy team is focusing you, but try to use it when they do not have interrupts available. Use this to help you or your teammates get away from an enemy.

Use Demonic Gateway Icon Demonic Gateway when you are overextended or to create distance between you and the enemy team. Using this effectively can completely negate an enemy team's cooldowns.

10.

Best Team Compositions for Demonology Warlocks

Now that you have the correct talents and understand your damage rotation, it is time to step into the arena with your team. With spells like Demonbolt Icon Demonbolt and decent crowd control, Demonology Warlocks should play defensively, but also have the ability to kill an enemy in a stun.

10.1.

2v2 Arena

In 2v2 Arena, there are not many options. Your primary goal is to get a full Fear Icon Fear on the enemy healer and a Axe Toss Icon Axe Toss on the enemy DPS. This will prevent anyone on the enemy team from interrupting your burst rotation and especially Hand of Gul'dan Icon Hand of Gul'dan. If you are playing with a healer that has a reliable stun (Hammer of Justice Icon Hammer of Justice, Mighty Bash Icon Mighty Bash or Leg Sweep Icon Leg Sweep), they can stun the enemy DPS while you Fear Icon Fear the healer. You can then follow up with another stun on your kill target.

Here is a list of the best team compositions for 2v2:

  • Demonology Warlock + Holy Paladin;
  • Demonology Warlock + Restoration Shaman;
  • Demonology Warlock + Restoration Druid;
  • Demonology Warlock + Discipline Priest.
10.2.

3v3 Arena

Your role in 3v3 is similar to 2v2 Arena. It is best to be playing with another caster so you are not the only person being interrupted. Try to use your burst rotation when the enemy team does not have any interrupts. Use Fear Icon Fear on the enemy healer and Axe Toss Icon Axe Toss on your team's kill target. It is important to note that Fear Icon Fear should also be used to help your teammates. If you or a teammate is struggling to stay alive, use Fear Icon Fear on an enemy DPS without a trinket. If they both have trinkets, use it on whichever enemy you want.

Here is a list of the best team compositions for 3v3:

  • WLS (Demonology Warlock + Arms Warrior + Holy Paladin/Restoration Shaman);
  • FLS (Demonology Warlock + Feral Druid + Restoration Shaman);
  • Demonology Warlock + Elemental/Enhancement Shaman + Restoration Druid/ Holy Paladin;
  • Shadowplay (Demonology Warlock + Shadow Priest + Holy Paladin/Restoration Druid).

Useful Macros for Demonology Warlocks

Macros are crucial to be successful in PvP. They allow players to use abilities on enemies without having to target them. This helps increase overall damage/healing and general awareness in the arena. Here are a few macros that all Demonology Warlocks can benefit from.

11.1.

Fear 123 Macro

  • #showtooltip Fear
  • /cast [target=arena1] Fear

Using this macro will cast Fear Icon Fear on arena enemy 1. This makes it easier to crowd control an enemy while staying focused on your target. If you want macros for the second and third enemies, simply change the arena1 to arena2 or arena3.

11.2.

Fear Focus Macro

  • #showtooltip Fear
  • /cast [target=focus] Fear

If you find that you do not have much room on your action bars, you can use a focus macro. This is much simpler to use than the arena123 macro. Put an enemy on focus and this macro will cast Fear Icon Fear on that player while you are still focused on your target.

11.3.

Axe Toss Focus Macro

  • #showtooltip Axe Toss
  • /cast [target=focus] Axe Toss

Put an enemy on focus and this macro will use Axe Toss Icon Axe Toss on that player while you are still focused on your target.

11.4.

Spell Lock Focus Macro

  • #showtooltip
  • /cast [target=focus] Spell Lock

This macro will use Spell Lock Icon Spell Lock on whichever enemy you have on focus. Because you will be primarily using Spell Lock Icon Spell Lock on the enemy healer, you should only need this focus macro.

11.5.

Mouseover Banish Macro

  • #showtooltip Banish
  • /cast [@mouseover] Banish

This makes it so you can use Banish Icon Banish on another Warlock's demon or an elemental pet while still damaging your main target.
