Demonic Knowledge is a high level warlock talent, providing the warlock extra spell damage based on one's pets' stamina and intellect.

Notes Edit

If choosing a tier 6 hybrid specialization (one not reaching the final talent in any given tree; usually ~30-30), this talent may not prove as beneficial as a tier 6 talent such as Shadow Mastery.

With patch 2.4 this talent gives 4/8/12% instead of the original 5/10/15%.

At level 70, the bonus for a completely nude character is as follows:

Pet Spell Damage
Imp 96
Voidwalker 71
Succubus 82
Felhunter 133
Felguard 82


Buffs that increase the pet's stamina and intellect, such as (Arcane Intellect and Fortitude) will increase the warlock's spell damage. If you have an imp out, be sure to take it out of phase shift during buffing periods. Pets also gain a portion of it's master's intelligence and stamina.

The exact percentage depends on whether or not the talents Demonic Embrace, Fel Stamina and Fel Intellect are taken and if Blessing of Kings is active on the warlock and their pet. A level 70 warlock with 3 ranks of this talent, plus the other demonology talents listed above that increase Int/Stam will gain about 100 spell damage while having a succubus out. This assumes Karazhan epics but not gear from 25 man raids.

In the table below it is assumed all appropriate talents have been taken with max ranks.
