Fel Domination is a warlock talent and ability which reduces the casting time and mana cost of the next minion summon spell within a 15-second window.


Affects summoning an Imp, Voidwalker, Succubus, or Felhunter.

Each summon spell originally has a casting time of 10 seconds, so this reduces it to 4.5 seconds.

This casts a buff on the warlock, which can't be dispelled.

Talent improvement

This talent is particularly useful when combined with Master Summoner which reduces all of your summons' cast time by 2/4 seconds and 20%/40% mana cost. This gives a maximum benefit of a 0.5-second cast.

Tips and tactics

One of the best uses of this is when your Voidwalker is near death; use its Sacrifice ability to give yourself up to 30 seconds of protection. Then cast Fel Domination and summon a Succubus, Felhunter or Imp (so long as you have at least 1 point in Improved Firebolt) to help finish off the (hopefully weakened) enemy.

Enemies of the warlocks would have lay people think that the demons a warlock summon are invincible and cannot be defeated. This is, in reality, nothing more than anti-warlock propaganda. As all warlocks know, summoned demons (other than the Infernal and Doomguard...well...maybe not the Doomguard) are more cuddly and fluffy than threatening and a Warlock can often find him/herself in the open without a demon to protect himself.

Some warlocks call this the 'Oh Crap' maneuver...
