Yes.

I also use it for the instant summon of my pets. Mainly Drain Life and Summoning....the only other time I've used it was once in WG. I was the flag carrier, and I put a portal down, soul burned, and ported....just to get the speed bonus with the flag.

currently at 85 it will be on soulfire, cause isf is too good not to take.

Use it on Soulfire, your pets if they die, or Teleport or if you're really dying, then Drain Life. Depending on PvP/PvE

In PVP I use it as a nice bit of burst for Soul Fire, especially sexy when you get ISB (Instant Shadowbolt). I only ever use it with Drain Life if I need health back really quickly, and I've already blown the Healthstone.

Otherwise, great for catching some speed or re-summoning a killed pet.

For PvE, I use Drain Life. Drain Life can proc ISB's, so getting that with your Corruption up, means more ISB, in a shorter period of time.

Instant shadowbolts aka nightfall procs.

Affliction can also use Soulburn on Seed of corruption if you spec into it.

Soulburned Seed looks pretty awesome. Especially since you get the shard back if it's successful.

On afflic I use it only on Seed and on my demo I use it..... absolutely nowhere. On dest I use it on searing pain.

Personally though, I could do without it and dissapointed they introduced it. That might be because I mainly am a demo lock and really found no real use for it other than the occasional instapet.

You can also 'burn your Healthstone to get a mini-Shield Wall / Surv Instincts effect. Rather helpful in PvP sometimes.

My Healthstone is always macro'd to Soulburn. If I am pressing my Healthstone it sure as hell means I don't want to die.

Soulburn is... pretty much useless for raiding. It's basically a free Soul Fire 3 times per fight when you need to move. You can honestly use it however you like and the net dps impact will be minuscule.

Pet dies randomly? SB summon. Need to run run run? SB portal. etc etc


You're wrong, it's very useful if you're using the right spells to get them back. I must use upwards of 12 to 15 shards on LK and other fights with adds in ICC...sure I will have even more come Cata.

Wrong. Should be used as an opener with soulfire for the haste proc- and i use it during movement...or if adds are there and i can refill i use it on cd
