Immolate is a level 10 Destruction warlock hybrid spell spell that deals both direct damage and damage over time, with an emphasis on the latter.

Tips and tactics

When tanking mobs with your Voidwalker, 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.
