Warlock soulweaver build for Neverwinter

The Complete Warlock Soulweaver Healing Build – Neverwinter Mod 16 Undermountain

Welcome to our Warlock Soulweaver Guide, updated for mod 16: Undermountain and Level 80. In this guide, we will give you tips and info on how to play the Warlock class, previously called the Scourge Warlock.

The Warlock class was introduced in Tyranny of Dragons. They are a spellcasting class that uses their dark powers to damage their foes and can also heal themselves and their allies. See our Warlock Hellbringer DPS build here.

The purpose of our class guides is not just to show you a build that you can copy and use on your character, but to show you a base build and teach you the mechanics and stats of the game, so you can understand and play your class to its fullest capabilities. Try different gear, feats and powers and learn to tailor your own build for your playstyle. See our guide to making your own build for more info.
