DPS Rotation & Cooldowns for Affliction Warlock in PvE | Latest Patch 7.0.3
The following rotation guide was developed through extensive simulations and play testing with the goal of keeping the guide as simple as possible without sacrificing performance. This guide also included AoE rotations and provides details on when to use special talents and cooldowns.
Single Target Rotation
DPS Priority: Execute this priority for optimal DPS.
- Agony maintained at all times.
- Corruption maintained at all times.
- Unstable Affliction to dump Soul Shards.
- Drain Life as a filler spell.
Affliction Warlock DPS follows the priority outlined above. Maintain Agony and Corruption at all times. Use Unstable Affliction to spend your Soul Shards, remember to watch for Soul Shard procs from Agony. Finally, use Drain Life as your filler spell.
Your default demon choice for Affliction DPS is Summon Felhunter.
With < 4 targets, continue with the single target rotation while applying your DoTs on as many targets as possible. At 4+ targets begin maintaining Seed of Corruption on as many targets as possible.
Information on how to incorporate the selected talents from this guide into your rotation is currently being re-worked for 7.0.3. Check back later!
These are effective cooldowns to try and incorporate into most all encounters.
