Affliction Warlock Class Overview

PVE Affliction Warlock Guide, WoW WotLK 3.3.5a

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.

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.
