1. Recommended races for Warlocks in PvE

Here are the races we recommend you pick for your Warlock in WoW Classic for PvE.

Horde PVE : Undead

Volonté des Réprouvés : Removes Fear effects.
Cannibalisme: Allows you to quickly regen life between fights.

Alliance PvE : Gnome

Pensée expansive: +5% intelligence.
Gnomes have the highest base intelligence, making them perfect for caster classes in both PvE and PvP.


Undead wins out because it has slightly better base stats than other races and Volonté des Réprouvés comes in handy.

For Alliance players, Gnome is definitely the pick thanks to Pensée expansive giving you 5% more intelligence.

2. Recommended professions for Warlocks

Here are the professions we recommend you pick for your warlock for PvE.

Tailoring

Tailoring is a « must-have », in part because of the vital Robe du Vide (BoP), the pattern of which you can find on Darkmaster Gandling, the final boss of Scholomance. Other patterns will unlock as new phases are released, like Gilet en vignesang and its insane 2% hit chance, viable until Naxxramas.

Enchanting

Works well with Tailoring and is good to have in a guild. Great for making money as well.

Herbalism

Herbalism lets you gather plants and herbs. Combine it with Alchemy and you can now make your own potions to get ready for raids, or simply sell the mat the Auction House for gold.

Alchemy

Crafting potions, oils or elixirs.

3. PvE tips for Warlocks

Warlocks must think before they act. You must play differently depending on what you’re fighting.

Position yourself carefully: You have no mobility spell, mistakes will be costly.

If a DoT isn’t going to last for its dull duration, use Brûlure de l'ombre or Trait de l'ombre instead if you can. Make sure you refresh your DoTs once they’ve expired however.

Never end a fight at full mana. This would mean you used Connexion too much, which means you could have done more DPS! This takes some experience.

Decide before pulling which Warlock is going to use which curse when there are multiple Warlocks in your raid. This will help your raid a lot.

Have a downranked Bannir bind: You don’t always need the full 30 seconds from rank 2, if you’ll only need 20 seconds of CC, use rank 1 to save time. 

Use Peur to control enemies! With Malédiction de témérité you can prevent feared enemies from running into another pack if necessary. Use another curse to resume the fear effect.


Rune démoniaque and Rune ténébreuse do the same thing as Life Tap but aren’t on the GCD. Use them! Abuse them!

Warlock
0 / 0 / 0
Level required: -

This spec takes its name from the its main talents : Shadow Mastery from the Affliction tree (10% more shadow damage) and Ruin from the Destruction tree, doubling critical strike damage.

In my opinion, it is more fun to play than the other spec, but struggles to compete because it relies a lot more on damage over time, which is very problematic because of the debuff limit on bosses. There can never be more than one Warlock using this spec in a 40 man raid. It is a much more reasonable choice in 20-man raids and dungeons.

Your DPS is highly dependent on Crépuscule procs, better pray that RNG favors you!

Again, some talents are mandatory, other depend on your gear or your playstyle. Your call.

Spell rotation for the SM/Ruin spec

Single-target:

  1. Curse (whichever you’re assigned to cast)  
  2. Corruption  
  3. Trait de l'ombre  
  4. Brûlure de l'ombre (if remaining combat time < cast time of a  Trait de l'ombre)  
  5. Connexion

Multi-target:

  1. Malédiction d'agonie  
  2. Corruption on as many targets as possible  
  3. Flammes infernales if you can get enough healing.

Always use an instant Shadowbolt when Transe de l'ombre procs.

5. Stat priority for Warlocks in PvE

Here is the stat priority to optimize your Warlock for PvE.

Stat priority

  1. Spell hit chance
  2. Spell power
  3. Spell critical chance

Spell hit cap is 16% (17% on a lvl 63 enemy but you always have at least a 1% chance to miss)

The critical strike chance cap is generally considered to be 25%.

demoniste t1 pve wow classic

Careful with this priority because it is based on raw statistics supposing that 1% critical strike chance = 6 spell power and 1% hit chance = 9 spell power.

These values should be fairly stable but depend on your equipment, optimization and raid composition. Take a loot at our section on Addons to optimize this.

You can find here lists of the best possible equipment your warlock can use in PvE thanks to our « Best-in-slot » tool below Here is the BIS gear for Warlocks

6. Consumables for high level PvE

Consumables are extremely important in Classic WoW, especially in the beginning or when a new raid is released. Alchemy and Cooking bring a lot of value to a raid; we recommend you follow our guides to level these professions.

You will find below a non-exhaustive list of some necessary consumables for raiding.


Runes:

Flasks :

Food:

Magical Protection:

Weapon oil : 

There are many more consumables that can be useful for specific encounters or hard bosses.
