  • Soulburn
  • Increases the duration of your next Unstable Affliction by 10 sec.
  • Duration: 10 seconds

Soulburn is an Affliction warlock honor talent, available at rank 25. Using it consumes 1 Soul Shard to increase the duration of the next [Unstable Affliction] by 10 seconds.


Soulburn appears to be a variation of the [Soul Fire] ability; Soulburning involves converting soul shards into fel energy that is used to power abilities and the Soul Fire spell involves converting life force (or souls) into energy that is used to burn someone's soul.
