Recommended Gear for Affliction Warlock in Dragonflight
What is the BiS Affliction Warlock gear?
With many different sources of gearing and loot scarcity in Dragonflight, targeting your absolute Best in Slot gear isn't entirely realistic; instead, we've created a Best in Slot list from the ideal Affliction Warlock drops found in Dragonflight from Mythic+ Dungeons and Vault of the Incarnates to help you decide what to prioritize.
While raid drops are generally the most reliable way of getting high item level gear, many other items can be just as good, if not better, so you should reference the stat priorities listed on the
and our Raidbots guide to help determine your own BiS gear based on what is available to you.
As a rough guideline follow the stat priority of:
Haste > Mastery >= Critical Strike > Versatility
. Don't neglect the value of
, a substantial increase in ilvl is generally worth it compared to optimized stats. It is always recommended that you use
to sim your own character, since every character is different.
Mythic+ Best in Slot Gear for Affliction Warlock
As usual with Mythic+ items, while there may be a theoretical best-in-slot selection for each slot in a simulation, it’s unlikely you’ll ever be able to achieve such a perfect character in reality. Affliction Warlocks target Haste and Mastery, then crit and lastly versatility. This list is based around that.
Best Affliction Warlock Trinkets in Dragonflight
Affliction Warlocks are mainly looking for one powerful on use trinket to pair with their cooldowns, and a supplementary either proc or flat stat trinket. The stats Affliction is most looking for on trinkets are Haste and Mastery.
Damage dealt from the arrow is high and will carry over to the next mob if your target dies before the effect ends.
Provides a larger amount of on use Critical Strike with passive Intellect.
Equip based trinket that provides Critical Strike and gains additional value with other party members. "Rare" raid drop.
This trinket provides a large amount of Intellect while being on a 2 minute cooldown.
Eye of Skovald does a significant amount of damage in both Single Target and AOE based settings.
Trinket brings passive Intellect with a stacking Critical Strike increase effect which has both Single Target and AOE value.
Mediocre Single Target trinket that brings with it a self-damage effect.
Trinkets daily effect can be chosen based on what is targeted when used. Damage selection brings random damage procs as well as periodic minor stat increases.
This trinket grants Primary Stat to all party members that stand within the effect, but also reduces Critical Strike. Raw Stat gain seems undertuned due to its split effect.
Can be useful in niche AOE settings but overall, a subpar option.
Trinket deals a moderate amount of AOE damage, but has little Single Target relevancy.
Effect deals subpar damage in both Single Target and AOE.
Best Items to Upgrade with Valor for Affliction Warlocks
With Valor being a limited currency, Affliction Warlocks should focus on upgrading their Weapons first, followed by items of greater value such as Chests, Legs and Helms. After that, you may upgrade Trinkets and items of lesser relevance.
Crafted Gear for Affliction Warlocks in Dragonflight

Best Gear to Spend Sparks of Ingenuity for Affliction Warlocks
Once you obtain
, you should aim to craft the following items at the highest item level possible. Note that you may use the
to increase its item level later if you so desire. After crafting your best pieces, you can use sparks to improve slots that you have the lowest item level pieces, aiming to increase your average item level.
It is important to note that 2-Handed Weapons cost 2 Sparks. The best way to approach crafting is to wait as long as you possibly can, then craft an item to replace one of lower item level you have equipped or one that will bring the biggest DPS increase. Weapons offer a lot of early value, but can also lose it quickly if another is acquired through multiple sources. Amice of the Blue occupies a Shoulder slot, so be sure to not break your 2/4 piece bonus. Amice will be your primary off-piece.

Why is that staff better than something with stats?
Could someone explain pls? :/
So, almost half of our BiS Uldir gear comes from Mythrax or G'hunn. How fun.
We are Warlocks - be happy
The tab that lists the raid gear for Battle of Dazar'alor still says "Uldir".
BIS Dazar'alor hands are horde only :(
Under Best in Slot, you have bracers from Siege of Boralus listed.
