For Infernal lore, see Infernal.
For the spell to summon an Infernal, see Inferno.
The master of every infernal worries not about its death, but that it might survive too long. [1] (TCGHoA 127)


Warlock players in World of Warcraft may learn a skill called Inferno. The skill calls forth an infernal to the warlock's aid for one minute (Prior to Patch 3.0.2 the length of time for summoned Infernal was 5 minutes; after this time, the Infernal would become hostile and had to be re-enslaved.) The ability is available to Warlocks at level 50 after completing a quest line from Niby the Almighty in Felwood, where the warlock must defeat Kroshius to obtain his Infernal Core. Warlocks may also learn the ability from reading [Grimoire of Inferno], which drops off Scarshield Warlock in Blackrock Spire.


Infernals has no warlock controlled abilities, however they do have Immolation, a passive ability which deals AoE fire damage (40 + 100% of the infernal's spell power every 2 seconds).

Infernal Tips

Casting the spell consumes an Infernal Stone (purchasable at reagent vendors for 50Silver each) and creates an Infernal under initial control of the Warlock.

The Infernal will remain under the warlock's command for one minute. It can tank multiple mobs better than a Voidwalker; aside from the quite respectable melee damage it does, it also has a fire aura that will damage all units within melee range that aren't outright immune to fire. However, Infernals do not have a taunt ability, so if you do pull aggro they are generally incapable of re-acquiring the attention of a mob. The Infernal is especially useful in battlegrounds, you can drop inferno on a group of players to stun them and deal some AOE damage followed by Shadowfury it can give up to 5 sec group stun which is more then enough time to deal massive AOE damage for your allies. Or simply summon it and let it loose many people overestimate the infernal and will back off. This may buy some time for your own faction — unless they have a warlock who knows what they are doing and simply banish it.
