Ruzan will teach you how to summon an imp to be your minion, but first he wants you to do battle with them so you will know what kind of adversary they are.


Bring 6 Vile Familiar Heads to Ruzan.


Those warlocks who came before us have earned the distrust of the Horde, and while we are tolerated, we are not loved.

This has not brought the warlocks closer together, however, as many choose to live reclusively, dabbling in their magics alone. I will not seek to lead you down one path or the other, but only help you in your maturation.

Before I teach you the art of summoning, bring me six heads of the vile familiars from the cave to the northeast.


It is important that you can control the beings that you summon through your magic. There are few enough interested in learning the ways of the warlock that I would risk throwing your life away by teaching you something before you are ready.


Throughout your training as a warlock, you will learn to call forth beings of many sorts. Some may not seem it, but all are useful tools.

Do not be fooled by the imp's small size. As you no doubt noticed, it is still a formidable adversary.

Gains Edit


The Burning Blade Coven is located north and east of the Den, beyond the Mottled Boars and Scorpid Workers. On your main map, you will see a cave in that general area - that is the Burning Blade Coven. There you will find Vile Familiars - level 3-4 humanoids - around the entrance to the cave, as well as inside the cave. You will not need to enter the cave to kill enough Vile Familiars to collect the 6 Vile Familiar Heads you need as enough are found outside. (Vile Familiar Heads have a 100% drop rate.) Be warned - their respawn rate is somewhat fast, so be careful of enemies reappearing behind you.

For beginning warlocks, Vile Familiars introduce a new type of attack - ranged. Their ranged attack is Fireball, which causes 3-4 damage. It is not a DoT (Damage over Time) attack.
