World of Warcraft Warlock’s Guide to HFC



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

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
