    Default Are warlock blasts affected by Metamagic?

    Is it totally useless then to get maximize or empower on a warlock?

    Regular blasts are not affected by metamagics, but certain enhancements such as Eldritch Burst, Consume, and Stricken are affected. They also don't cost any SP so there's that.

    Both non-pact damage and pact damage on your regular Eldritch Blasts (no matter what shape they use) is not affected by metamagics.

    Enhancements like Eldritch Burst, Spirit Blast, Consume, Stricken, and Eldritch Wave *are* affected by metamagics. But your normal pew pew pew blasting is not.

    Also, nice things things that proc on "melee, spell, or ranged attacks" generally don't happen with Eldritch blasts. Some things do work, though. Sense Weakness from the Fury destiny is a nice boost since you're going to Hold or otherwise make-helpless a whole lot of your enemies.
