This spell is learned when a warlock takes the Destruction talent specialization.

[Glyph of Conflagrate] reduces the cooldown of this spell by 2 seconds.

If another warlock has an Immolate active on the target, the Conflagrate button will be ungrayed. However, you cannot cast Conflagrate unless you have an Immolate active on the target.

Tips and tactics

Curse of the Elements increases damage done by Conflagrate by 10%/13% based on rank of Curse.

It was recommended to use this spell just right before the Immolate or [Shadowflame] expires, but after patch 4.0.1, this spell directly deals %60 of the periodic damage of your Immolate on the target, and it no longer consumes your Immolate and will not work off Shadowflame.

The listed damage of this spell and the actual damage will usually be different because Emberstorm (+3/6/9/12/15% dmg of all fire spells; including Conflagrate) is a commonly taken talent in the tier before.

The [Glyph of Conflagrate] will reduce the cooldown of this spell to 8 seconds. Keep in mind conflagrate has a cooldown of 10 seconds, and immolate has a duration of 15 seconds. Its a common practice to spam the Immolate spell while waiting for the cooldown of Conflagrate, and since Conflagrate no longer consumes Immolate, you can refresh your Immolate with [Fel Flame] for keeping up the cycle.
