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.

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. Be sure to maximize movement during this encounter, as the room is very large, and pressuring the adds properly is important to maximizing both the strategy and overall damage.

5. Zek'voz, Herald of N'Zoth

Be sure to have your Cataclysm Icon Cataclysm ready for each spawn of the Silithid Warriors, allowing you to deal monstrous burst damage to the group of them. 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

This is more or less a Patchwerk style fight, so focus on maximizing your damage output.

7. Zul, Reborn

Channel Demonfire Icon Channel Demonfire can be a choice for additional cleave, however, Dark Soul: Instability Icon Dark Soul: Instability will offer both higher burst and overall damage.

8. Mythrax the Unraveler

Pay careful attention to your timers before using cooldowns, however, as there are a lot of difficult mechanical overlaps that might force you to movement for extended periods.

9. G'huun

Cleave as much as possible to maximize your overall damage, but have Soul Shards ready for priority damage when necessary.
