1.1. Talent Cheatsheet for Destruction Warlock

The Restless Cabal Uu'nat, Harbinger of the Void

2. The Restless Cabal

This fight has 2 targets, with additional adds spawning throughout the encounter. Your Imp can be used to dispel Promises of Power Icon Promises of Power and help healers' Mana; alternatively, you can choose to run with Felhunter to help with interrupting the Eldritch Abomination's casts.

You should aim to keep every target Immolate Icon Immolated in order to gain extra shards and increase your uptime on Flashpoint Icon Flashpoint. Despite doing this, you should remember that Visage from Beyond is the priority add, so make sure to save resources if needed; once it reaches 1 HP, it will start regenerating. You should consider making it a Havoc target in order to stagger the awakening.

Custody of the Deep Icon Custody of the Deep is a DPS-check mechanic, so make sure to coordinate with your raid to pop these bubbles before they expire.

Warlock's mitigation and high stamina make them a good candidate for Zaxasj tanking and to soak Void Crash Icon Void Crashes after they bounce twice. Make sure to place your Demonic Gateway Icon Demonic Gateway and Demonic Circle Icon Demonic Circle to minimize the raid damage taken from Crushing Doubt Icon Crushing Doubt.

3. Uu'nat, Harbinger of the Void

This fight has 3 phases, with an increasing amount of adds spawning over the course of the encounter.

Phase 1 is fairly straightforward; you just need to pay attention to where you are standing and try to drop tears at the edges of the platform.

You should try to keep Immolate Icon Immolate up on Undying Guardians for additional resources, but ensure that they are not regenerating when you start the transition into Phase 2.

The Primordial Mindbenders can be stunned and interrupted.
