Health Funnel is a level 19 warlock ability that allows them to transfer their own health to their pet.

Tips and tactics

  • Unlike First Aid, this spell generates aggro for the warlock (although this may be desirable if the pet is dying anyway).

Patch changes

  • Legion Patch 7.0.3 (2016-07-19): Now available to all specializations. Now sacrifices 24% of the player's health (from 12%) to heal the demon for double the amount (from 36% of the demon's health).
  • Warlords of Draenor Patch 6.0.2 (2014-10-14): Now available only to Affliction and Demonology Warlocks. No longer gains a benefit from Soulburn.
    Level reduced from 12 to 11.
  • Mists of Pandaria Patch 5.3.0 (2013-05-21): Now causes the [Soulburn] portion of the spell to increase healing generated from Health Funnel by 140% instead of instantly restoring 36% health.
  • Mists of Pandaria Patch 5.0.4 (2012-08-28): Health cost increased from 1% to 6%. Duration increased from 3 to 6 sec.
  • Wrath of the Lich King Patch 3.0.2 (2008-10-14): Visual spell effect changed. Undocumented.
  • Bc icon.gif Patch 2.3.2 (2008-01-08): The health cost taken from the Warlock after using Health Funnel will now remain consistent between uses.
  • WoW Icon update.png Patch 1.12.0 (2006-08-22): This spell will now work correctly on low-level enslaved demons.
  • Test-inline.png Patch 0.9 (2004-08-17): Found and fixed a bug that caused the cost per second of Health Funnel to be higher than it should be.
