== External links ==
This skill has been shown to be one of the most mana-efficient spells, but this is offset by the Soul Shard cost. Untalented it has a poor damage per cast time, so is not a good spell to use when damaging an enemy normally, but is very good as an opener when soloing where the cast time is 'free'.
 
 
If you have talent points invested deeply into the [[Destruction]] tree, this spell can deal huge amounts of damage to generic enemies and instance bosses when it critically hits and if you have a steady supply of Soul Shards then casting this spell two or three times on a boss will help improve your DPS.
 
 
For targets under 35% health, [[Decimation]] now allows Soul Fire to be cast faster, and without a soul shard. This talent makes Soul Fire similar to a Warrior's [[Execute]].
 
 
The long cast time and Soul Shard cost of this spell make it harder to use in [[PvP]] as the time spent casting it is time gained for an enemy player to tear you to pieces.
 
 
 
==Patch Changes==
 
* [[Patch 3.3.0]] The talent [[Molten Core (warlock talent)|Molten Core]] in the demonology tree, now has a chance to increase Soul Fire's damage by 6/12/18% and critical strike chance by 5/10/15% when your [[Corruption]] deals damage.
 
* [[Patch 3.1.0]] Pyroclasm no longer provides a chance to stun the target as the talent itself was reworked, and Aftermath no longer gives a chance to daze the target, as the talent was reworked as well.
 
* [[Patch 3.0.2]] removed the spell's cooldown.
