Warlock in demon form

A warlock in demon form

Metamorphosis is a warlock ability learned at level 10 for those with the Demonology specialization. It is the hallmark of that specialization, allowing use of a demonic form powered by Demonic Fury, granting an array of unique abilities.

Notes Edit

  • While shapeshifted, the demon-form warlock can be banished. Demon form is also susceptible to Turn Evil and grants an auto-crit on Exorcism but is immune to enslave demon.
  • You speak Demonic instead of your normal language.
  • Metamorphosis can be used for AoE Farming by picking up a bunch of Mobs and then using Immolation Aura and Hellfire.

Trivia Edit

  • Metamorphosis is adapted from the iconic demon hunter ability of the same name, and is visually based on Illidan Stormrage's demon form.
  • Metamorphosis is considered [form:2] in macros.
  • At one point, warlocks in demon form could be enslaved.
