One mistake that most people make when playing a warlock is playing it just like a hunter. Even though the characters are similar in that they both have pets, the hunter is focused on single target DPS and killing mobs as quick as possible.
We as warlocks, on the other hands, have quite effective skill sets that will let us to really, very swiftly destroy multiple mobs at as soon as. Welcome to the unknown art of drain tanking!
Now for the initial 30 levels, playing a warlock is very similar to that of a hunter: send pet in to get aggro, fire off some spells and dot’s, send pet to new mob, repeat. As soon as we get the level 30, nonetheless, the tables take a real turn and we are provided an wonderful new talent Siphon Life. What Siphon Life does is turns your Corruption and Seeds of Corruption DoT’s into HoT’s for you, which means the spells kill mobs and heal you at the exact same time! Right here we also get our new pet, the Felhunter.
Now the tables take a gigantic turn. We become the tank while we DoT up our targets. Our Felhunter just becomes one more mobile DoT as we aggro mob soon after mob. We become unstoppable killing machines just from that one talent, siphon life.
Since as we DoT up far more and far more targets with our Corruption spells, we get healed more and far more. Targets will preserve swinging and hitting us, but they will not be able to bring us down due to the fact our DoT’s are healing us as nicely as killing the mobs. We have no choice but to preserve moving and killing much more mobs! Throw in our drain life spell and we never have to be concerned about well being ever once more! We can life tap over and over once more and our wellness and mana levels will by no means fall to vital levels.
One extremely essential point to take into account here is once you commence to part of drain tanker at about level 30, you often, often, usually want things with +spell power. Why? Simply because much more spell energy signifies your spells do far more damage implies that you get healed a lot more. Always take + spell power when you switch to the function of drain tanker.
