Warlock Pacts

From DDO Compendium


Every Warlock chooses one of the six Pacts at character creation: Fey, Fiend, Great Old One, Celestial, The Abyss or The Carceri Storm. This defines the source of the Warlock's power and determines several variables for the Warlock's development. The choice is permanent.


Each of the pacts available for warlocks have different basic requirements and benefits. These are listed below:

Pact Alignment Pact Damage Type Damage Save Save Bonus
Fey Any alignment Sonic Reflex Reflex
Fiend Non-Good alignments Fire Fortitude Fortitude
Great Old One Non-Lawful alignments Acid Will Will
Celestial Good Electric Reflex Will
The Abyss Non-Good alignments Negative Fortitude Fortitude
Carceri Storm Any alignment Cold Will Will

Pact Damage[edit]

As shown above, each pact gets specific types of damage per pact. That starts +1d8 extra damage to your Eldritch Blast based on your pact; this will increase by +1d8 every even Warlock levels, for a total of 10d8 at level 20.
