PvE Destruction Warlock Talents & Builds

tbc classic pve destruction warlock talents & builds burning crusade classic

Destruction is the best option for endgame content in Phase 2 and later because we can more easily reach the cap for spell hit. At that point, this is the build for maximum DPS while raiding, in 5-mans, and in heroics at level 70.

Shadow Build

Unfortunately, there are no talents that directly give us an increase in spell hit rating, so this build won’t max out damage until we can reach hit cap from gear. We have the option of going for maximizing shadow damage, mixing shadow and fire, or maximizing fire damage.

Shadow & Fire Build

In this spec we will be using Immolate and therefore need the 5 points in Improved Immolate. Conflagrate deals some great instant-cast damage and is to be used just before refreshing the Immolate DoT effect on a target. This build will revolve around using Incinerate instead of Shadow Bolt.
