Notes Edit

Warlock in demon form

A warlock in demon form

  • While shapeshifted, the demon-form warlock can be banished. Demon form is also susceptible to Turn Evil and grants an auto-crit on Exorcism but is immune to enslave demon.
  • Also you speak Demonic instead of your normal language.
  • Metamorphosis can be used for AoE Farming by picking up a bunch of Mobs and then using Immolation Aura and Hellfire

Trivia Edit

  • Metamorphosis is adapted from the iconic demon hunter ability of the same name, and is visually based on Illidan Stormrage's demon form.
  • Metamorphosis is considered [form:2] in macros.
  • At one point, warlocks in demon form could be enslaved.
