Artifact Challenge boss nerfs and other WoW Hotfixes for April 10 So far, I’ve seen a lot of complaints about Thunderslash being nerfed and not any complaints about Inquisitor Variss getting watered down in this round of hotfixes for Patch 7.2. DKs, Demon Hunters, Hunters, Mages, Warlocks and Warriors all saw Artifact Traits get some buffs or nerfs, and there were changes to dungeons, class halls...

Blood Pact: Warlock questing talents in Legion Legion Warlock talents haven’t changed much recently and are mostly the same since Legion alpha, but we’ll recap here what might be good questing and leveling talents as we prepare to look towards 110. Keeping the new talent change restriction in mind, I’ve tried to also pick talents that might work better in 5-man Normal...




Blood Pact: Meaningful Warlock talent choices Although I’ve been severely delayed to level 110 by various bugged quests and server instability, I’m catching up to progress again on the Warlock class order campaign. Recently, Celestalon posted on the forums on overall class talent design in Legion, and for Destruction there was a talent swap between two tiers that represents some cool interaction between...

Blood Pact: Legion’s Warlock legendaries Among the Diablo 3-esque features of this expansion, in addition to the bounty-like world questing, are legendaries with specific class ability effects, sometimes spec-specific. While legendaries in Azeroth are nowhere near as prolific as they are in Sanctuary, they can still be kind of fun or useful if you get one.

Blood Pact: Destruction’s first look in Legion On one hand, our third spec is finally here! On the other hand, it’s not the same spec we used to know and many Warlocks are slightly upset by the changes we’ve seen so far.

Blood Pact: The argument for Demonic Circle Someone has to be last to be worked on, and apparently Destruction is it for Legion alpha. Affliction and Demonology are still receiving changes to their artifact traits, and especially to their Soul Shard random regeneration talents, but as I need to reroll my Warlocks to experience some new class hall content, I don’t have...

Blood Pact: Demonology’s compare and contrast Apparently Destruction Warlocks will not be testable before Legion alpha freezes over via Frost Mages. That’s fine, my bet of “just before the world ends” is still in the running for when we’ll get to Incinerate on the alpha realms.

Blood Pact: Legion Demonology spells Last week we talked about some of the cosmetic and feely things with Demonology on Legion alpha, and a few days ago we had more cosmetic presents in the form of new demons and better-looking old demons. It’s time to talk about the spells and abilities that form Demonology’s new toolkit in Legion, even if...



Updated graphics for Warlock pets Warlock pets such as the Felhunter and Felguard have already received graphics updates, and now the Succubus has joined them. The latest Legion build also brings the new Beholder cooldown demon for Demonology (previously a Dreadlord, which was itself previously an Inquisitor), which looks very much like Durumu, the eyeball boss from Throne of Thunder. I...

Blood Pact: First look at Demonology on Legion alpha It’s here! I can talk about something that’s not Affliction, and it happens to be the newly designed Demonology that’s out on Legion alpha now.

Blood Pact: Warlock class intentions in Legion As part of my quest to understand where Warlocks sit among casters and ranged DPS — not to mention, making sure we are distinct from those filthy Fire Mages — I’ve rolled several other classes in the Legion alpha. Although none of the class halls are entirely complete yet, I’ve started to grow jealous of...

Blood Pact: Ulthalesh, the Affliction Warlock Artifact Affliction is still the only Warlock spec available on the Legion alpha, though Demonology got a literal new skin for its Artifact that’s still not implemented. We need to step it up; perhaps we should sacrifice more Mages to the developer gods to get another spec to play.

Blood Pact: Affliction’s toolkit in Legion Yes, we’re still talking Affliction in Legion, but don’t worry, once Demonology and Destruction make their respective debuts on the alpha, I’ll probably be doing nonstop non-Affliction then. I haven’t figured out the complete theorycrafting yet, but I’ve pressed all the Affliction buttons at least a few times each. I’m skipping over the Artifact traits this...

Video: Legion Warlock class hall tour In my final class hall tour before the Legion alpha went down for the holidays, we took a look at the Warlock class hall. Located on the Burning Legion stronghold of Mardum, its introductory sequence is one of the more epic of the many class halls — though at this point in the alpha, it feels a bit empty...

Blood Pact: Playing with Affliction Warlock talents in Legion alpha In the redone talent selection for Affliction in the Legion alpha, there’s only one talent that both stayed the same as its Warlords version and also didn’t move from its current position. Some spells are changed from what we’ve known them as and some are entirely new to us.

Blood Pact: Affliction’s Legion Artifact and Warlock class hall I’ve learned from Kanrethad and tried to pick the least spoilery header image I could find; this is it. It’s not quite 100% spoilerific because that is obviously my voidwalker there — you do remember what a voidwalker looks like, right?
