Tips and tactics
This spell was always used before using
Enslave Demon to increase the effectiveness of the enslave. The demon was less likely to resist, and the curse remained in effect while the demon is enslaved, decreasing the chance that it wwould break the enslave early.
Used together with
DD spells like , as well as to aid [Shadow Bolt ] Mage or Druid characters
that use Arcane, or Shadow Priests that use Shadow Magic.
Voidwalker's is Shadow-based, so this helped the voidwalker to hold aggro.
It was helpful on raid bosses when you have multiple people attacking with Shadow and/or Arcane spells.
