Notes Edit

  • If you want to maximize your damage as a warlock in a party, then you should finish the mob using Shadowburn.
  • In duels, it is tempting to save the Shadowburn until you are sure that the opponent almost dies. A better strategy may be to use Shadowburn whenever possible, right from the start, as this will result in a higher damage output. However, this also leads to a higher Burning Ember consumption.
