Interface

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.

Macros

Phantom Singularity & Vile Taint mouseover macro

Weakauras

You can find many good warlock weak auras on wago.io.

Since Weak Auras is so personal I would suggest browsing the warlock site until you find something you like yourself.

Getting a soulstone Weak Aura would also be a good idea so you don't forget to use it. (https://wago.io/rMSVf8ShS) It will tell you when there are no healers with a soulstone on.
