Affliction Warlock Gear Recommendations
This section of the Affliction Warlock guide covers everything about gear, including: stat priorities, gear trinkets, and legendary item rankings. This guide is written by

page where I frequently post guides, ramblings, and boss kills. If you have any questions, its best to PM me on discord @Terryn#6182. Updated for 7.1.5.
Rotation & Abilities
Macros & Addons
Gear and Stat Prioritization
s wear cloth.
Stats for your spec:
Primary Stat: Intellect
Stat priority: Mastery > Crit > Haste > Intellect > Spell Power > Versatility
If you would like to know exactly the weights for your character, please simulate your character and pull the stat weights that way
Critical Strike: Chance for extra effectiveness on attacks and heals. This is amplified in value due to
Haste: Increases attack speed and spell casting speed.
This will decrease both the period and duration of
Mastery: Increases damage done by
Versatility: Increases damage and healing, and reduces damage taken.
Trying to gear
When trying to gear, there are a few spot checks to tell if a piece of gear is probably an upgrade.
If you are unsure, always simulate the changes in simulationcraft to be sure. There is no way to know otherwise, even with stat weights.
Does it have mastery
Does it NOT have versatility
Is it an item level upgrade
These 3 steps can decide just about everything except jewelry. Jewelry and trinkets are best left to simcraft because things can be kind of messy with those.
- Unstable Affliction deals 10% additional damage over time.
- Agony has 1.15 times the normal chance to generate a Soul Shard.
General Warlock Legendaries:
is a new craftable legendary. Lots of sockets for more mastery, and has an incredible outside world. This doesn't do anything in our rotation.
(Successfully applying a loss of control effect to an enemy, interrupt an enemy, or dispel something, grants you 70% increased movement speed and 25% Haste for 10 sec. This effect may occur once every 30 sec.):
Rotation-wise nothing changes for you. If you stun a target you gain some movement speed. Infernal stun WILL proc this on bosses, as well as doomguard interrupts and imp dispels, everything else that can proc it will only proc it on trash.
(Every 30 seconds you gain a shield for 25% of your total hitpoints):
This is hands down the best survivability stick in the game, as well as being a super good stat-stick.
now casts instantly and you can use
s twice before triggering a cooldown.):
Nothing changes for you except that you don't have to cast
any more and that you can use it a second time before you get the 1 minute cooldown.
(For 25 sec after casting
, you and your minions deal 15% increased damage.):
If you have this legendary you want to make sure that you can burst after using your Doomguard. That means that you want to have all your cooldowns ready like your racial,
(if specced into it), enough
Stacks. If you play with
you want to make sure that you have 5 shards ready for the burst phase.
NOTE THIS IS ONLY LOOTABLE AS DEMO
(Standing still for 8 sec grants you Foresight, allowing you to cast while moving for 5 sec. This duration begins when you start moving.):
This pretty much makes drain cycles with movement a thousand times easier. You can plan and plot when you will need this movement and for how long, etc. These are going to be super strong if we see more fights like Mythic Helya.
(On use: Sends a green-fiery ball of death towards the target, damaging everything in its path.):
This trinket does not affect effigy. Its handy for things if there's enough in your raid to instantly nuke down one target, but otherwise it's not nearly as useful in the hands of an affliction lock.
deals its full damage 10% faster):
Works like the old Archimonde Trinket: Reducing the duration and period of
. This gives you 10% more ticks and 10% more recasts.
on a target who is not already affected by
has a 25% chance to refund the
For pure single target, this is “essentially” a free UA every 8 casts. When running a multi target Writhe build, you will be able to game this a lot better, getting more procs across multiple targets. There is no alteration to your play style in single target, and you just need to consciously spread UA across multiple targets if AOE.
slows enemy movement speed by 60%.):
Nothing changes for you. There’s some pretty silly things you can do with soloing mythic things, and this lets you do even more of this.
(Each enemy afflicted with your
increases all damage you deal by 4%.):
This doesn’t change anything about your single target because its a dps downgrade to try and cast UA on multiple targets instead of just doing Drain Cycles as normal. If you are in a writhe build, this, like
will put SOME focus on putting UA on multiple targets, but it is not a mandatory thing and not a terribly high dps increase.
increases the duration of reap by 1.5 seconds per stack.):
This item is pretty cool, it allows you to do more with your limited number of souls. 1 soul can amplify a drain cycle for an extra 2 ticks, 2 souls will overlap the entire duration instead of missing the first tick.

4pc with SC
The other Legendaries don't have any value in terms of damage.
has a lot of uses as a stat stick and survivability,
is incredibly strong in mythic+, and others have various other benefits.
Trinkets are another hot-button topic, and because of their strange interaction with Dots, some are drastically better for Affliciton than for other specs, while others are drastically worse for Affliction than other specs.

What do the sims tell us?
These sims are assuming that
effects dots. If it does, our trinket list looks something like this:
Mastery > crit > Haste stat sticks (Int + secondary)
This is telling us that stat sticks are REALLY good for Affliction, and most all of the other trinkets are not as good. With this bit of information, just try to focus on acquiring large stat-stick items.

is a great way to search for gear if you are new to Wowhead's filtering system.
Choose what item category, gear slot, and class specialization you're interested in, and it will return results for you. You can further narrow it down by source--including gear from LFR and heroic dungeons.

which is great for tracking vanity collections and viewing your character in our 3D modelviewer, you can click on the "Planner" button in the header to access the tool. If you don't, you can just enter your information in at Tools > Character Planner.
Wowhead utilizes a powerful system of item filters to narrow down the gear you need.
, you can enter in some basic options at the top--the name of the item, its item level, the level the players needs to be. The "Usable by" dropdowns cover factions, class, and role.
The dropdown menu right above "Stat Weights" opens to display a variety of advanced options. These cover the following:
General item info such as Added in Expansion/Patch, BoE/BoP, Unique-Equipped, Class-Specific.
Stats: All primary stats, secondary stats, defensive stats, and weapon stats.
Source: All in-game sources, ranging from raid difficulties to the Black Market Auction House to sold by a vendor.
Miscellaneous: Many of these filters are not relevant to equippable gear such as Crafting Reagents and Toys, but you can filter for items that are currently obtainable.
Once you've selected a filter from the menu, click on Apply filter for search results. You can repeat the process to filter for multiple criteria at once--for example, Agility gear that is found in Mythic Foundry.
Over on the right-hand side of the page, you can select a particular Gear Slot or Quality to narrow results even further.
Finally, you can quickly view a subset of items at once using the Database Menus. Head to Database > Items and mouseover the Weapon and Armor options for quick links to gear arranged by armor type and slot.
