When the dark arts call for flesh, you can only trust your own.

Life Tap is a warlock ability learned at level 34 for those who have chosen any specialization. It converts health into mana. It is somewhat of a signature ability of the warlock.

Background Edit

Life Tap is an ability that transforms a portion of the warlock's own life force into fel power.[1] It seems to be a variation of the Death Knights' Unholy Armor spell. This ancient Necromantic spell transforms a portion of the recipient's life force into something unearthly[2] and seems to be a variation of the Necrolytes' Unholy Armor spell.

RPG Edit

0000The RPG Icon 16x36 This section concerns content exclusive to the Warcraft RPG, and thus unlikely to be canon.

The most dedicated of the dark arts are willing to sacrifice everything in their pursuit of greater power, and this spell is one example of how far some warlocks are willing to go. When casting this spell, the caster cuts a gash in the body, using blood as a reagent.[3]

Notes Edit

  • Warlocks in a party with a healer can boost their mana if the healer agrees. Note that the self-inflicted damage will rank low on the healers priority list - after the tank and party members taking aggro.
  • Between fights, use Life Tap to bring your life and mana even. This way, you will regenerate both hp and mana at the same time, and will decrease your downtime.
  • While Life Tap will allow you to continue casting, it does trigger your GCD, reducing your overall DPS, and should be used sparingly.
  • Life Tap does not generate aggro.

Patch changes Edit

  • 0300Wrath-Logo-Small Patch 3.3.3 (2010-03-23): This spell no longer scales with spirit, and instead scales with spell power.
