In this section we will be covering the optimal talent build for Affliction Warlocks in Wrath of the Lich King so that you are able to maximize your damage output.

When it comes to talents and builds we will focus on one specific build which is viable for end-game content and also helpful during your early days of equipment pursuit. This build will offer you high damage while also providing useful and powerful buffs and debuffs for the dungeon/raid.

First of all this build focuses on Suppression to boost your hit rating so you can focus on min-maxing your stats. Empowered Corruption, in conjunction with a must-have glyph which we will talk about later, is a requirement while also having points into Nightfall to create perfect synergy.

One of the debuffs we talked about is Shadow Embrace, it amplifies the shadow damage that the target receives so we want to maximize the points we spend on this talent. We also want to make sure to spend points on Death’s Embrace and Soul Siphon to create that powerful execution phase once the target reaches 35% health.

One unique buff that Affliction Warlocks bring is the Felhunter’s Fel Intelligence, working as a combined buff from a Priest and a Mage, bringing Spirit and Intellect stats while also stacking with the other classes’ buffs. We can make this buff stronger by adding two points into Improved Felhunter but to do so we will sacrifice a point from Intensity.
