Last updated on Mar 21, 2023 at 19:43 by Mysticall 18 comments

Choosing your gear carefully is important for your Demonology Warlock in PvP. We give you a stat priority to help you choose items with the right stats, followed by advice on how to choose the rest of your gear and your trinkets.

This page is part of our Demonology Warlock PvP Guide.


Stat Priority for Demonology Warlocks in PvP

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

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

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


Gear Recommendations


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. You want to increase Intellect because it drastically increases your overall damage output. Here is the best gear we recommend you use as a Demonology Warlock.

Note: It is important to be wearing 2 PvP trinkets. This will give you a Stamina and Intellect boost that will increase your survivability and damage output.

As noted above, it is very important to acquire both your 2-set and 4-set bonus. For Demonology Warlocks, this is your tier set:
