Demonic Pact is a passive warlock talent that increases the Warlock's spell damage, and Spell Power of all party or raid members when the Warlock's pet scores a critical.

Demonic Pact is very beneficial to have in 5-man instances, and even better in raids. For example, if you have +2000 spell damage, then this will add +200 spell damage to all raid members much of the time.

The Demonic Pact buff does not stack, but the 45 second countdown is reset if the pet scores another critical before the effect expires.
