Patch 9.0

Written by Namix Last Updated: 23rd Nov, 2020

Some content in this guide is based on beta or early data

Updates will be made after raid progress is finished and more accurate information is available.


Having a clean UI is key, something where you can easily track your DoTs on multiple targets. Your UI usually comes down to personal preference so don’t just copy a UI, make sure you meet your own requirements and be able to modify it if you need to. 

Recommended Addons:

  • Weak Auras 2: Good addon to track boss mechanics on yourself or if there is something you would like to track yourself like dots. 
  • BigWigs: Good for boss times and get updated a lot if something is wrong. It has great customization options, so you will be able to look at it and keep yourself updated on the boss times.


Vile Taint cursor macro

This macro will make you cast your Vile Taint wherever your mouse will be. Can be used with Shadowfury as well if you change the macro a bit.

/cast [@cursor] Vile Taint

Mouse over dotting Macro

This will make you able to apply dots without changing targets. Works with Agony, Corruption, Siphon Life, Unstable Affliction, Haunt, Scouring Tithe

/cast [@mouseover,harm] Agony; [harm] Agony


There will be a lot of warlock weak Auras there will be good you can find them on Since Weak Auras is so personal I would suggest just browsing the warlock site until you find something you like yourself.

Warlock Weak Auras -

Getting a soulstone Weak Aura will also be a good idea so you don't forget and have the whole raid flaming you. ( It will tell you when there are no healers with a soulstone on.
