Affliction Warlock Class Overview
Welcome to my Affliction Warlock DPS guide for World of Warcraft WotLK 3.3.5a. This will be a short guide describing what Spec, Talents, Glyphs, Gems and Enchants you will need in order to succeed in a raid. In the end of the guide there are also some tips and basic rotation for the class.
Affliction Warlock has a good single- and multiple target dps. Weak spot here is that Affliction spec lacks burst damage.
Gems are used to get your stat caps depending on what you lack, so it is situational

Chest – Powerful Stats
Bracers – Superior Spellpower
Gloves – Exceptional Spellpower

Gameplay & Rotations
Rotation is pretty easy, but there are a few tricks. Don’t reapply DoTs earlier than needed. Spells like Corruption and Drain Soul remember the stats you have until you’ve casted them, use that to maximise the damage. By the way, your pet is Felhunter.
Addons play quite a big role in World of Warcraft and should be used by everyone. The question is, what addons do YOU need? Truth is, every player decides for himself what addons does he need or want. Now, there is a list of must-have addons, without them - you won't be taken seriously, or your game will be much more complicated.
Check out our Addons Page which will provide you with download links and configuration information. Addon version is correct for WoW WotLK 3.3.5a.
