'''Spell Lock''' is a [[warlock]] [[Felhunter]] skill learned at level 50. It is best described as a hybrid of [[Silence]] and [[Counterspell]]. When used, it will silence its target for three seconds; if the target was in the process of casting a spell, however, then the spell will be interrupted and the target will be unable to cast a spell from the same [[School|school of magic]] for six seconds.

Spell Lock, like all of the [[Warlock minions|minion]] skills, can be set to [[auto-cast]]; however, as the AI will normally use this skill to immediately silence its target, rather than attempt an arguably more beneficial interrupt, it might be more viable to disable this. Disabling auto-cast will allow the warlock to decide if a spell is worth interrupting, or if the target is enough of a threat to use an interrupt on.

Use of this skill will usually force a caster to enter melee combat, where they are at a considerable disadvantage.
