Death Pact is a Death knight talent available at level 75.


  • This was a Death Knight ability in Warcraft III as well, where the highest level of the spell healed the death knight for 300% of the targeted unit's health.
"Through the sacrifice of his followers, a death knight can absorb their unholy energies and convert them into health for himself."

Patch changes Edit

  • Warlords-Logo-Small Patch 6.0.2 (14-October-2014): Death Pact no longer requires an undead minion, and instead places a healing absorption shield on the Death Knight for 50% of the amount healed.
  • Mists-Logo-Small Patch 5.0.4 (28-August-2012): Updated; no longer sacrifices the minion's total health.
  • Wrath-Logo-Small Patch 3.3.3 (2010-03-23): Fixed a bug where Death Pact would not kill the ghoul while under the effects of Cyclone.
  • Wrath-Logo-Small Patch 3.1.0 (14-Apr-2009): This heal cannot be a critical.
  • Wrath-Logo-Small Patch 3.0.8 (2009-01-20): Now grants 40% instead of 20% healing. This will no longer cause guards to attack the Death Knight.
