Soul Fire is a warlock ability learned at level 13 for those with the Demonology specialization. It is a mana-efficient, high damage Direct Damage spell, best used as an initial attack for pulling due to its long cast time. In this sense it is similar to the Mage's Pyroblast ability.

It also generates 30 Demonic Fury.

  • The long cast time of this spell makes it harder to use in PvP as the time spent casting is time gained for an enemy player to tear you to pieces.
