Rank table

Rank Reduction
1 3 sec

A maximum of 2 points may be put into this talent. The first point reduces the cooldown of the Lash of Pain to 9 seconds. The second point reduces it to 6 seconds.


  • Effectively doubles the damage output of the Succubus, this talent somewhat makes up for the lack of the extra DoTs you may have given up in the affliction tree.
  • With both talent points spent, the succubus will become somewhat more effective at holding aggro from mobs since her damage output will be closer to yours. She doesn't have the stamina or armor to tank, but she does buy you enough time to dot up a target and get it down to the point where you can hit it with a barrage of direct damage for a quick death.

Patch changes

Wrath of the Lich King Patch 3.0.2 (2008-10-14): Improved Lash of Pain (Destruction) and [Improved Firebolt] (Destruction) have been merged into one talent, [Demonic Power].
