Affliction

Affliction banner1000

Affliction brings a strong AOE damage profile in the form of Sow the Seeds spam. This is further amplified by the  Night Fae Legendary Decaying Soul Satchel. Affliction is lacking however when it comes to single target/priority damage which can be an issue at times and is further exacerbated by the loss of Dagger of Necrotic Wounds in 9.2. It's tier bonus also has very little relevancy if playing Sow the Seeds. 

Tyrannical

Aff ST

This is the pure single target build of Affliction. While you might not bring as much damage to trash packs, this version of Affliction will bring the most to your group if you need single target damage. It is worth noting that both Destruction and Demonology bring more priority damage while also having a better AOE profile than this build. 

Recommended Legendary: Demonic Synergy/Wrath of Consumption

Hybrid

Aff Hybrid

This build will cast Seed of Corruption in AOE in place of Malefic Rapture due to Sow the Seeds being your talent of choice. If you also desire a bit more single target damage Siphon Life can be chosen over Writhe in Agony and applied in single/two target settings for a bit more reach. It will not be applied in 3+ target pulls.

Recommended Legendary: Demonic Synergy/Wrath of Consumption

Fortified

Aff WIA

This version of Affliction is going to bring the best AOE damage possible. Writhe in Agony is exceptionally powerful in settings where it can reach 18 stacks and tick for its full damage. Sow the Seeds is also chosen and makes Seed of Corruption your AOE spell of choice over Malefic Rapture. This build is exceptionally strong in Fortified settings and brings some of the best AOE in the game. 

Recommended Legendary: Demonic Synergy/Wrath of Consumption



Demonology

Demonology banner green1000

Demonology has gained a lot of ground in patch 9.2 due to its 2-piece granting it a third Dreadstalker in every set. This greatly increases the damage and relevancy of the "Big Dogs" build of Demo in both single target and AOE while also greatly increasing the value of the Grim Inquisitor's legendary. 

Tyrannical

Demo AOE

Once you obtain your 4-piece tier bonus, the "Big Dogs" build of Demonology becomes your best build in every setting. The only bit of variance is if you want to play Soul Conduit of Grimoire: Felguard.  

Recommended Legendary: Wilfred's

Hybrid

Demo AOE

Your choice between Grimoire: Felguard and Soul Conduit mainly lies in the Tyrannical/Fortified Afflix and what Legendary you have chosen. Soul Conduit pairs better with Grim Inquisitor's while Grimoire: Felguard has a bit more Wilfred's synergy.

Recommended Legendary: Grim Inquisitor's/Wilfred's

Fortified

Demo AOE

The "Big Dogs" build of Demonology brings an incredibly strong and consistent AOE profile to Mythic +. This build is always paired with the Carnivorous Stalkers Conduit and a mix of Wilfred's or Grim Inquisitors. You can opt to play Soul Conduit for a bit more AOE/ST RNG if Grimoire is not as applicable or Grimoire: Felguard for a stronger single target profile. 

Recommended Legendary: Grim Inquisitors/Wilfred's

Destruction

Destruction banner1000

Destruction Warlock in Patch 9.2 has one of the strongest sustained AOE toolkits in the game thanks to its 4-piece tier bonus granting an Infernal every 10 shards spend. That in conjunction with other shard building/refund based talents brings an incredible amount of AOE on a short CD thanks to the Wilfred's legendary. 

Tyrannical

dual de

This build of Destruction is a common middle ground between AOE and single target. Both Soul Conduit and Dark Soul offer solid single target damage while bringing different damage profiles to the dungeon. Dark Soul gives a bit more on demand burst and is typically cast with your infernal every two minutes. Soul Conduit brings a bit of a higher average DPS but also has elements of RNG and not as much on demand burst with Wilfred's.

Fortified

Inferno

This version of Destruction has incredible AOE potential and is typically paired with the Wilfreds Legendary for a two minute or less Infernal CD. Having both Inferno and Soul Conduit in addition to your 4-Piece means that in heavy AOE this build has some of (if not) the highest sustained AOE in the game.
