  • Intensity (2 ranks)
  • Destruction, Tier 4
  • Gives you a 35/70% chance to resist interruption caused by damage while casting or channeling any Destruction spell.
Class Warlock
Tree Destruction
Points required 15
Affects All non-Instant Destruction spells: [Immolate], [Shadow Bolt], etc.
For the druid talent, see [Intensity].

Intensity is a warlock talent which reduces the chance that damage will delay or interrupt a spell.


Affects spells with a casting time as well as channeled spells.

This talent has got much stronger with the 2.0 patch.

Due to the length of time it takes to complete or channel these spells, this is a very useful talent to have.

When rank 2 is combined with a paladin's [Concentration Aura], spells are uninterruptible.

Primarily a solo PvE or PvP talent as the only times where you will be hit in grouped PvE are when you generate too much threat on a mob or when you're in range of an enemy's AoE attack.
