I want you to hit me as hard as you can.

Backlash is a passive warlock ability learned at level 32 for those with the Destruction specialization. It gives the warlock a chance to gain an instant [Incinerate] after being the victim of a physical attack.

Notes Edit

  • This will probably have greatest effect against melee attackers with very fast swing rate such as hunter pets and druids in cat form. Nuke to the face, close range!

Patch changes Edit

  • Wrath-Logo-Small Patch 3.2.2 (2009-09-22): When using Shadowbolt or Incinerate while having Backlash and Backdraft active, only Backlash will now be properly consumed.
  • Wrath-Logo-Small Patch 3.1.0 (14-Apr-2009): Backlash has been moved up to tier-5, up from tier-7. Now requires Intensity (pre-requisite).
  • Bc icon Patch 2.0.3 (09-Jan-2007): When a Warlock is under the effects of "Backlash" and "Nightfall", only one of the effects will be consumed by a "Shadow Bolt" cast.
