World of Warcraft Warlock?s Guide to Hellfire Citadel?by Lourinzo

I?m Lourinzo from Mind Games on US-Illidan, 13/13 Mythic. I get a lot of questions about warlocks on a fight by fight basis so I created this quick reference guide for anyone who?s interested.

1) Hellfire Assult: Destruction (DSI + UBGoS) ? Havoc + Shadowburn x2/3 as many targets as possible ? Dump as many chaos bolts into siege vehichles as possible

2) Iron Reaver ? Affliction (Fragment + DSI) ? Soulswap dots onto bombs then drain soul to regen your shard ? Use gateway or teleport to escape barrage

3) Kormrok ? Progression ? Demonology (Fragment + DSI) ? Cata + chaos wave when hands spawn (this is why you?re playing demonology)

? Farm/Zerg ? Affliction (Fragment + DSI)
? cata when hands spawn (if you need extra damage)
or
? standard spec and soulswap to the larger grasping hand to free the off tank

4) Council ? Affliction (Fragment + DSI) ? Grimoire of Supremecy (imp) ? keep maximum uptime on all 3 targets, keep refreshing dots

5) Kilrog Deadeye ? Progression ? Destruction (Piston + DSI) ? havoc adds/boss with chaosbolt or shadowburn x2/3 ? glyph of conflag to slow adds and/or ? save charge of conflag for when you need to dance ? teleport with heart seeker

? Farm/Zerg ? Affliction (Fragment + DSI)
? glyph of soulswap
? soulswap to adds, drain soul to regen shard

6) Gorefiend ? Progression ? Destruction (Piston + DSI) or (Voidsight* + DSI) ? havoc adds/boss with chaosbolt or shadowburn x2/3 ? glyph of conflag to slow adds ? use gateway/teleport for extra mobility ? shadowfurry to stun adds inside stomach ? Orb of Voidsight only works on the boss, NOT THE ADDS!!*

? Farm/Zerg ? Affliction (Fragment + DSI) or (Voidsight* + DSI)

7) Iskar ? Destruction (Piston + DSI) ? use gateway/portal to move out for chakram ? use Sacrificial Pact when targeted by Fel Incineration, keep the fire stacked in one spot ? If you have a mythic piston or adds live for less than 15-20 seconds, don?t bother casting immolate during fire + brimstone. ? during the third add phase, stand on the edge of platform and kill the boss before he lands using havoc + immo/conflag/incin x3 to quickly regen burning embers. this allows you to dump even more chaos bolts into the boss. ? Fragment can be used on this boss IF adds stay alive for 25+ seconds but requires you to cast fire + brimstone x incin 3-5 times before casting fire + brimstone x chaos bolt.

8) Socrethar ? Progression ? Destruction (Piston + DSI) ? dark soul + chaos bolt x3 + shadowburn when dominator spawns ? fire + brimstone when ghost spawn (absolute priority) ? glyph of conflag to slow ghost ? shadowfury to stun ghost ? sacrfice sucubus for aoe knockback ghost ? havoc ghost/adds/boss with shadowburn x3 on cd

? sb + soulswap + haunt when dominator spawns, drain soul to regen shard
? soulswap with extra shard(s) to shadowcallers (abosolute priority)

9) Tyrant ? Affliction (Fragment + DSI) or (Voidsight* + DSI) ? keep maximum dot uptime on adds + boss ? use portal to stack or move out with font (phase 2) ? adjust gateway (phase 3) allowing edict target to suicide
