Soul Siphon is a warlock talent that increases the amount drained by your [Drain Life] and [Drain Soul] for each of your Affliction effects on the target.

Notes

Affliction effects include:

It takes 3 of your Affliction effects to maximize the bonus. Additional effects will not increase the bonus damage.

Prior to Patch 2.0.1, Soul Siphon was the buff generated by [Improved Drain Soul], which increased Mana Regeneration by 100% and allowed 50% of mana to regenerate while casting for 10 seconds.

Trivia

  • "Siphon Soul" is a rare Warlock spell in Hearthstone. The flavor text reads: "You probably should avoid siphoning your own soul. You might create some kind of weird infinite loop."
