Skip the Void...use the Imp until you get the Succy and then do the same thing (void on the big pulls or tough fights only)You DPs so fast and can still Drain Tank most mobs that it goes way faster than using the Void.

My strategy leveling to 80 was similar, deep afflic including dark pact where my imp was only a mana battery. Shadowbolt, dotdotdot, fear/drain. Whenever I could, I would fear the mob before it got to me and just pulled another. By the time the feared mob would get to me, the dots would kill it and I would loot and move on. Tanking with your blueberry might be safe and all, but it was just too BORING. Using a spell almost every global cooldown, dotting and fearing as you go, constantly running around, never needing a mana break, reaping in the exp and kills? That's my definition of a warlock ;-)

/second that, Eyhk. Leveling like that also makes you much more pro by the time you hit 80.I'm also glad to see a warlock guide that explains Drain Tanking, the quintessential warlock strategy. Drain Tanking is especially useful while leveling on PvP realms. If a ganker shows up while you're killing a mob, you have multiple ways to control the situation: Seduction, Fear. You can even cast Seduction while stuneed, useful to control a rogue that Cheap Shots you out of stealth.Just keep in mind that while leveling on a pvp realm, it's useful to get a few points in Suppression, so you can handle higher level gankers. DoTs, Drains, Fear, and Seduction are all more likely to miss if the ganker is higher level than you. I remember the goold old days back in my 30s in STV, I was able to take down gankers 3-4 levels higher than me Seduce Nuking & Fear Kiting w/ maxed Suppression.
