When you draw power from demons, it's a good idea to have a backup plan in case they disagree.

Banish is a core warlock ability learned at level 32. It is a crowd control spell that causes an elemental, aberration, or demon to become invulnerable for a period of time, but unable to act.

Tips Edit

  • Banished mobs are affected by a Voidwalker's [Suffering] ability.
  • Mobs can be Taunted during a Banish. Communicate to your tank when the effect is seconds away from wearing off, they will appreciate the notice as it will allow them to place a Taunt effect on the mob and keep it from running out of melee range.
  • As with other Crowd Control abilities, it can be useful to employ the "Focus" system, especially with a macro such as this one.
  • If you cast Banish two times on the same target then the effect will end.

Notes Edit

  • Despite Banish being considered a Magic effect it cannot be dispelled.
  • Damage over time effects applied to the target who is affected by Banish will continue to count down but will cause zero damage.
  • May be used against on another warlock's minion.
  • May be used on elementals such as a Mage's Water Elemental or a Shaman's Fire and Earth Elementals.
  • May be used on a Restoration Druid who is in Tree of Life form.
