Destruction Warlock has always been one of the best classes for cleave, and recently it has been one of the best for high AoE.
Some weaknesses destruction has are that it’s very immobile and... that's pretty much it.
What has changed
Destruction Warlock Patch 10.1.7 Changes
Patch 10.1.7 didn't bring with it any changes that impacted the guide.
Destruction Warlock Patch 10.1 Changes
- Crashing Chaos redesigned – Summon Infernal increases the damage of your next 8 casts of Chaos Bolt by 50% (10% in PvP combat) or your next 8 casts of Rain of Fire by 70% (15% in PvP combat).
- Dimensional Rift damage increased by 15%.
These changes will make crashing chaos a more attractive option, picking up grand warlock’s design under it. That will effectively make our Infernal a 2 minute cooldown, and it will make it way more bursty. The dimensional rift change is nice, but it will most likely not see any play.
