This spell is the quintessential cornerstone of the Destruction tree. It increases the damage of your [[Incinerate]] spell by a substantial margin, and is one of the spells that gives you access to casting [[Conflagrate]], and the [[Fire and Brimstone]] talent allows it to increase the damage of Chaos Bolt, as well as further increase the damage of Incinerate.

== Notes ==
The Destruction talent spell [[Conflagrate]] needs an active Immolate DoT (or [[Shadowflame]] DoT) on the target in order to work. Once cast, the spell will consume the effect, thus it's advantageous to wait until Immolate has almost finished dealing all its damage before casting Conflagrate.
+
When tanking [[mob]]s with your pet (either [[Voidwalker (warlock minion)|Voidwalker]] or [[Felguard (warlock minion)|Felguard]]), save casting Immolate until the end of your DoT rotation. Not only does it have the shortest duration, but as it deals initial damage, it generates the most [[threat]] and could possibly [[pull]] the mob to you.
 
You can get around this side effect by using [[Glyph of Conflagrate]], available at level 40.
 
 
Note, if you are an [[Affliction]] Warlock, this skill overrides [[Unstable Affliction]] , and vice versa.
 
 
== Talent improvement ==
 
[[Improved Immolate]] will increase the periodic damage of your Immolate spell by 30% at max rank.
 
 
[[Bane]] will lower the cast time of Immolate by up to .5 seconds at max rank. Talents like [[Emberstorm]] at max rank will increase the amount of fire spell damage that applies to the spell by 10%.
 
 
Immolate is a [[Destruction]] spell, and thus gains the benefits of [[Cataclysm (talent)|Cataclysm]], [[Aftermath]], [[Devastation]], [[Intensity]], [[Destructive Reach]], and [[Ruin]].

However, there is an exception to the above tactic. ''If'' the Warlock is soloing, ''and'', the tactic is that of a [[Warlock Tank]] ''and'' the Warlock is expecting a long fight, casting Immolate to start the fight may be beneficial for two reasons. First, the Warlock avoids potential interruption of the 2 sec. cast time when offering an opening Immolate. Secondly, if the fight is expected to be in the 25-35 sec. range, a second Immolate can be cast, maximizing the likelihood of conducting a mana-efficient battle (2.12 dmg. per mana at max rank)

Immolate is a warlock ability learned at level 12 for those with the Destruction specialization. It deals both direct damage and damage over time, with an emphasis on the latter. It is one of the common DoTs destruction warlocks place of their targets. In addition, critical strikes will generate Burning Embers.

Notes

When tanking mobs with your pet (either Voidwalker or Felguard), save casting Immolate until the end of your DoT rotation. Not only does it have the shortest duration, but as it deals initial damage, it generates the most threat and could possibly pull the mob to you.

However, there is an exception to the above tactic. If the warlock is soloing and the tactic is that of a Warlock Tank with the expectation of a long fight, casting Immolate at the start may be beneficial for two reasons. First, the warlock avoids potential interruption of the cast time when offering an opening Immolate. Secondly, if the fight is expected to be in the 25-35 sec. range, a second Immolate can be cast, maximizing the likelihood of conducting a mana-efficient battle.

Patch changes

  • Wrath-Logo-Small Patch 3.3.3 (2010-03-23): The damage-over-time component of this spell can now produce critical strikes.
  • WoW Icon 16x16 Hotfix (2009-04-15): "We have hotfixed the damage of the Warlock spell Conflagrate from 100% to 70% of Immolate's total periodic damage instantly. The tooltip may still show 100% until a future update though."
