Patch 4.0.1

Cataclysm This section concerns content exclusive to Cataclysm.

In Patch 4.0.1, Ritual of Doom is removed from the game. This page is for historical purposes.

Ritual of Doom is a Warlock spell that sacrifices a significant portion of a participant's health for the benefit of summoning a Doomguard.

The Doomguard summoned from the ritual will be under the control of the warlock for 15 minutes and despawns after that time has elapsed. This is in contrast to the Doomguard that spawns from the proc of Curse of Doom which needs to be enslaved and will break free from enslavement after a certain amount of time has elapsed.

Learned from a [Grimoire of Doom] or N Warlock [60] Suppression.
