Drain Soul is a warlock ability learned at level 19 for those with the Affliction specialization. It steals the soul from the enemy, energizing a Soul Shard after dealing damage twice; three shards are energized if the target dies.

All other periodic damage effects from the warlock will instantly deal 100% of their normal periodic damage if the target is at or below 20% health when Drain Soul deals damage.
