Everlasting Affliction is a tier-10 Warlock talent in the Affliction tree that adds additional damage to the damage over time spells Corruption and Unstable Affliction. In addition, each time you recast your Haunt, Shadow Bolt, Drain Soul, or Drain Life, it has a chance to reset the Corruption counter.

Rank table

Rank Bonus spell damage[note 1] Chance to reset
1 + 1% 20%
2 + 2% 40%
3 + 3% 60%
4 + 4% 80%
5 + 5% 100%
  1. ^ Bonus spell damage is applied per tick (not for the whole duration, unlike Empowered Corruption), so it adds an additional 5% per point to Unstable Affliction and an additional 6% per point to Corruption

Tips and tactics

It may be necessary to clip and recast Drain Soul while the target is under 25% HP in order to ensure Corruption is properly refreshed.

Patch changes

  • WoW Icon 16x16 Hotfix (2009-12-17): "Everlasting Affliction can now refresh the duration of Corruption on a target when the Warlock casts Drain Soul."
