Death Pact is a Death knight talent available at level 60. It sacrifices a portion of an undead minion's health in order to restore some health to the Death Knight.


  • If cast while in a sanctuary and not in combat, the minion is not killed.
  • This was a Death Knight ability in Warcraft III as well, where the highest level of the spell healed the death knight for 300% of the targeted unit's health.
"Through the sacrifice of his followers, a death knight can absorb their unholy energies and convert them into health for himself."

Patch changes Edit

  • Mists-Logo-Small Patch 5.0.4 (28 August 2012): Updated; no longer sacrifices the minion's total health.
  • Wrath-Logo-Small Patch 3.3.3 (2010-03-23): Fixed a bug where Death Pact would not kill the ghoul while under the effects of Cyclone.
  • Wrath-Logo-Small Patch 3.1.0 (14-Apr-2009): This heal cannot be a critical.
  • Wrath-Logo-Small Patch 3.0.8 (2009-01-20): Now grants 40% instead of 20% healing. This will no longer cause guards to attack the Death Knight.
