Blood Pact: "En Doomguarde!" shouts the warlock tank

Every week, WoW Insider brings you Blood Pact for affliction, demonology, and destruction warlocks. This week, Megan O'Neill is really just looking for an excuse to take the big hits as a warlock tank.

We have the Glyph of Demon Hunting, whichever side of the warlock tanking fence you're on. Maybe it's just for soloing old content. Maybe it's for tanking in a pinch while the real tank gets battle ressed. Maybe it'll just be the chunky flag-carrier glyph for PvP.

Any way you slice it, there's going to be a beefier stance than Metamorphosis. Someone in your future pickup group will try to tank with it, guaranteed. Let's explore the possibilities of warlock tanking before we tell that pugger how silly they are.

Warlocks getting a ranged taunt through glyph

One of the more interesting things in the beta datamining is the Glyph of Demon Hunting for warlocks. It appears it'll lead to situational taunting and/or ranged tanking for the 'lock. When combined with Metamorphosis, which increases armor and damage done while reducing crit hit and normal hit chances, it should allow the 'lock some good utility in certain instances.

Of course, this is far from turning warlocks into ranged tanks, but it's certainly an interesting step in that direction. I'd look at it more as a hunter taunt, however.

And as with all things in the beta, there's no saying whether this will be around next week. But for now, raise the eyebrow at the possibilities!

Glyph of Demon Hunting
Demonic Fury now reduces damage taken instead of increasing damage dealt.
In addition, while using Metamorphosis, Soulshatter taunts your target, Twilight Ward will absorb all schools of damage and Demonic Slash is shorter range and generates fury.

It's open warfare between Alliance and Horde in Mists of Pandaria, World of Warcraft's next expansion. Jump into five new levels with new talents and class mechanics, try the new monk class, and create a pandaren character to ally with either Horde or Alliance. Look for expansion basics in our Mists FAQ, or dig into our spring press event coverage for more details!
