Hello everyone, I'm Bangerz, I'm going to take you through all the new changes in Shadowlands with destruction warlocks and how to tackle the new bosses/Mythic+ the best way possible. I have been a top-end raider for a long time and love giving information/tips to the community.

What has changed

There actually aren’t any specialization ability changes coming for Destruction Warlock however let's talk about some of the new general warlock spells that are useful.

Fel Domination - Your next Imp, Voidwalker, Succubus, Felhunter, or Felguard summon spell has its casting time reduced by 5.5 seconds.

We have been given 3 new curses which are listed below, you can only have 1 curse active at a time;

  • Curse of Tongues - Forces the target to speak Demonic, increasing the casting time of all spells by 30% for 30 seconds.
  • Curse of Weakness - Increases the time between an enemy’s attacks by 20% for 2 minutes.
  • Curse of Exhaustion - Reduces the target’s movement speed for 8 seconds.
