Age of Conan

My demonologist was my 3rd raiding character in Age of Conan that I got fully equipped with T2 gear.

This is not a all encompassing guide to playing demonologist in Age of Conan, but more a description on how I raid with my demonologist.

The described build has been used with great success in T1 and T2. It has also been tested some in T3 and should also perform well there.

Basics

Demonologist is a powerful class in Age of Conan. You should be able to do good dps in all raid fights. When you play demonologist you will need some restraint. You need to know when you must hold back, and when you can go all out. Otherwise you will get aggro and end up dead more than you or your raid leader like.

Feats

I use a Havoc/Conflag hybrid feat build. It was originally posted some time ago on my guild website. I have been using it since I started raiding on demonologist, and it has been serving me well.

Spell Rotation

Demonologist

For single targets:

  • Unholy Hate
  • Chaotic Blast
  • Hellfire Stream
  • Shock
  • Fires of Gehenna

Repeat casting Fires of Gehenna until some other spells in the rotation is off cool down.

For small tight groups of mobs:

  • Unholy Hate
  • Chaotic Blast
  • Hellfire Stream
  • Shock
  • Shockblast
  • Fires of Gehenna

Repeat casting Fires of Gehenna until some other spells in the rotation is off cool down.

For larger groups of mobs :

  • Unholy Hate
  • Chaotic Blast
  • Hellfire Stream
  • Shock
  • Shockblast
  • Inferno of Amber

Alternate casting Shockblast and Inferno of Amber until some other spells in the roatation is off cool down.

Don't start right on a aoe spell rotation right after a multiple trash pull. There are sure to be some mobs that are not tanked, and you will then to draw aggro and die. It's safer to find a mob that is tanked and use the singe mob rotation for some seconds before starting on a aoe spell rotation. The ultimate test is to not die a single time on trash in a T2 run, and still do top dps.

Only use Shock Lance when you have the rank 5 buff. It will then be instant.

Subtile Illusion is your friend, as it reduces the hate towards you from mobs around you . Cast it as often as possible on boss fights. Remember it is a self centered spell, so be sure to be near the boss when casting it.

Spellweave when you can. The Hand of Doom spellweaving effect is great. It makes all spells get a 100% critical chance, but will you will be burning mana fast.
