1. Introduction for Destruction Warlock Boss Advice in Uldir

In this section you will find information pertaining to each boss individually in the Uldir raid.

The advice in this section is in a state of continual updates, as the content is still extremely fresh. As we experience the bosses in their live and properly finished states, additional tips and advanced techniques will be added.

1.1. Talent Cheatsheet for Destruction Warlock

Taloc M.O.T.H.E.R. Fetid Devourer Zek'voz, Herald of N'Zoth Vectis Zul, Reborn Mythrax the Unraveler G'huun

2. Taloc

Demonic Circle Icon Demonic Circle should be placed roughly around the center of the room, or wherever is likely to be clear of Plasma Discharge Icon Plasma Discharge. Destruction can unleash powerful cleave on the elevator, but be sure to have your cooldowns available for both active phases.

3. M.O.T.H.E.R.

Warlocks should be among the last to cross the Defense Grid Icon Defense Grid, as we do not have a convenient interrupt to deal with the Remnant of Corruption adds that spawn. The Demonic Gateway Icon Demonic Gateway is a great tool for helping the raid deal with the Wind Tunnel Icon Wind Tunnel, as it allows you to get a few extra casts off for free before gating away from the danger. Demonic Circle Icon Demonic Circle can be placed in each chamber for a similar advantage. Dark Pact Icon Dark Pact is a strong option if your group does cross chambers in one go.

Ensure you have your cooldowns ready for the third chamber, as the boss takes 100% additional damage due to Depleted Energy Icon Depleted Energy.

4. Fetid Devourer

Demonic Circle Icon Demonic Circle is a great way to deal with the Shockwave Stomp Icon Shockwave Stomp present on Heroic, although it is not available for every knockback. Save cooldowns for adds waves according to your raid strategy. If two adds are relatively close you can and should abuse Havoc Icon Havoc.

5. Zek'voz, Herald of N'Zoth

Be sure to have your Cataclysm Icon Cataclysm ready for each spawn of the Silithid Warriors. For the majority of the fight, however, single target damage will be your priority. When the Nerubian Voidweavers are active, Destruction does have a good opportunity to deliver powerful cleave damage.

Make good use of Demonic Circle Icon Demonic Circle throughout the fight, as there are a variety of mechanics that necessitate movement. Demonic Gateway Icon Demonic Gateway is a particularly good tool for assisting with Eye Beam Icon Eye Beam or Roiling Deceit Icon Roiling Deceit. Warlocks make a great candidate for Orb of Corruption Icon Orb of Corruption due to our exceptional damage cooldowns.

6. Vectis

Add damage is key here, and as Destruction you can use Havoc Icon Havoc to your advantage, just keep in mind you wont have it for every add. Both Demon Skin Icon Demon Skin and Dark Pact Icon Dark Pact are extremely helpful

7. Zul, Reborn

Boss damage is what matters, Dark Soul: Instability Icon Dark Soul: Instability will offer both higher burst and overall damage. You can use Cataclysm Icon Cataclysm on Crawgs if you can afford it, to gain more shards and funnel more Chaos Bolt Icon Chaos Bolts on Zul. Consider taking Dark Pact Icon Dark Pact to help healers when soaking in Phase Two. Place both Demonic Gateway Icon Demonic Gateway and Demonic Circle Icon Demonic Circle to minimize movements.

8. Mythrax the Unraveler

Plenty of opportunities for Havoc Icon Havoc cleave so make sure to use it as much as you can. Demon Skin Icon Demon Skin is a good option due to the frequent incoming damage. In Mythic try to save Cataclysm Icon Cataclysm for at least 1 add wave in Phase Two.

9. G'huun

Depending on the strategy and raid composition you will have to place Demonic Gateway Icon Demonic Gateway and Demonic Circle Icon Demonic Circle in different places. In Mythic save Dark Soul: Instability Icon Dark Soul: Instability for adds in Phase Two, but use Summon Infernal Icon Summon Infernal before beam.
