This guide will cover how to get the Demonic Tactics rune for Warlocks in Season of Discovery. We’ll go over all of the locations and requirements in the walkthrough below as well as any useful tips and tricks.

How to Get the Demonic Tactics Rune

To acquire the Demonic Tactics rune, head to the area near Jasperlode Mine in Elwynn Forest (56.7, 57.7). There you will find the body of a Dead Acolyte. Search the body to obtain an Acolyte’s Note and Unidentified Artifact. You need both items to continue the quest, so don’t get rid of the note.

Make your way to Goldshire and show the artifact to Maximillian Crowe, the Warlock Trainer, who is in the basement of the inn (44.4, 66.2, see map below). Then return to the Dead Acolyte and use the Powerless Artifact at the runestone. This action will grant you an item imbued with fel power and give you the Blood Offering debuff.

Following the clue from the note found on the dead body, seek out Gakin the Darkbinder in Stormwind City (25.6,77.8, see map below). He’s in the same room as the Warlock Trainer. You must get to him while the debuff is still on you (within 10 minutes). He will remove the debuff and give you Rune of Tactics, which you can right-click to learn the rune.

To acquire the Demonic Tactics rune, head to the hills east of the lake in Tirisfal Glades (77, 45). There you will find the body of a Dead Acolyte. Search the body to obtain an Acolyte’s Note and Unidentified Artifact. You need both items to continue the quest, so don’t get rid of the note.

Make your way to Brill and show the artifact to Rupert Boch, the Warlock Trainer, who is upstairs in the inn (61.6, 52.4, see map below). Then return to the Dead Acolyte and use the Powerless Artifact at the runestone. This action will grant you an item imbued with fel power and give you the Blood Offering debuff.

Following the clue from the note found on the dead body, seek out Carendin Halgar in Undercity (86.0, 25.4, see map below). He’s near the area for the Voidwalker quest. You must get to him while the debuff is still on you (within 10 minutes). He will remove the debuff and give you Rune of Tactics, which you can right-click to learn the rune.

You can go to the brill warlock trainer for step 2, instead of going to UC.

For Undead, you can go to any Warlock trainer including Brill, no need to go down to UC.

If for some reason the buff drops off, as long as you have the fel powered artifact, you can still get the Rune (Ally)
