Haunt is a warlock ability learned at level 60 for those with the Affliction specialization. It causes direct damage and places a debuff on the target, amplifying all damage done by the warlock's spells against it.

Modified by Edit


Notes Edit

  • Its direct damage can crit.
  • In PvE, this spell is to be kept up on a boss target at all times, significantly boosting the Affliction Warlock's overall single-target DPS.
