Tips and tactics

  • For warlocks from 8-62, this spell should always be maintained. Its long duration means you don't need to recast it very often, and it's usefulness is not to be underestimated.

After gaining [Fel Armor] at level 62, Demon Armor is oft forgotten. However it still has its uses:

  • The Healing bonus applies to bandages and Healthstones as well, so turning it on after a resurrection of any variety is both useful & efficient.
  • The added armor and health regen is useful in Multi-mob drain tanking of higher levels, a PvE grinding technique for Affliction Warlocks.
  • It is useful in PvP, especially for affliction locks due to its quality of enhancing both [Haunt] and [Drain Life], in addition to the glorious armor bonus.
  • It can also be used for lock tanking, which is useful e.g. against the Blood Prince Council in Icecrown Citadel as it increases healing received by 20% and more if it is specced with [Demonic Aegis].
