In this article, we list the buffs, debuffs and useful abilities that a Destruction Warlock brings to a raid. We also list equivalent buffs and debuffs that other classes provide.

The other articles of our Destruction Warlock guide can be accessed from the table of contents on the left.

Dark Intent Icon Dark Intent
  • Buff that links the Warlock to another raid member. This has two beneficial effects:
    • Both players receive 3% increased haste
    • Each time one of the two players causes a critical strike effect with a periodic damage or periodic healing spell, the other player's periodic damage and periodic healing is increased. For the Warlock, the damage increase is 3% for 7 seconds, stacking up to 3 times. For the other player, the damage or healing increase is 1% for 7 seconds, also stacking up to 3 times.
