Introduction

 

Welcome to my Destruction Warlock guide for Legion! Currently Destruction is one of the most flexible Warlock Specializations which offers a whole variety of different strengths. They excel mostly in any situation which require any 2+ target cleave and is a class which is not really dependant on gear to do good damage. Destruction Warlocks single target DPS isn't amazing however it can still be very effective with progress with such strong burst CD's. Destruction is the usual progression specialization because of its flexibility and ability to burn down high priority targets whilst losing 0 DPS to the boss.
