Burning Embers is a warlock talent on Tier 4 of the Destruction tree.


  • Damage caused by Burning Embers is considered to be caused by the warlock, even when procced from the Imp's [Firebolt]. This means that the additional damage from Firebolt will:
    • Generate aggro for the Warlock and not the Imp
    • Proc [Fel Synergy], effectively causing the Imp to heal itself
    • Proc [Fel Armor], effectively causing the Imp to heal the warlock
    • Tap mobs on behalf of the warlock, allowing the warlock to loot mobs killed solely by the Imp

Damage cap

The spell's damage cap is determined by the following formula:

Spell power * Y + X

  • Y is determined by the talent's rank: rank 1 = 0.7, rank 2 = 1.4.
  • X is determined by the player's level: level 41 = 15, level 85 = 141.
