Talent improvement

[Unholy Power], Master Demonologist, [Soul Link], and [Demonic Tactics] are all considered important talents for a warlock that relies on a Felguard. These talents not only improve your overall DPS, but also improve the Felguard's threat per second (TPS).

Tips and tactics

This is a great ability for solo and pvp, however it can cause havoc in groups using crowd control (CC) that breaks when the controlled creature is damaged. If you will be using CCs like [Polymorph] or [Freezing Trap] it is best to turn this ability off.

Similarly, if your tank has more than one creature attacking him or her, Cleave will often draw aggro from whichever creature the tank has the least threat on.
