  • Duration: 6 seconds

Challenging Roar is an emergency ability that causes nearby enemies to attack you. It is learned at level 28 for 75s.


Tips and tactics

This ability is best used to save a group from a wipe when aggro gets out of hand or there are adds that must be quickly and surely drawn to you. After the 6 seconds time, aggro will switch back to its original holder unless enough fresh threat was generated during that time. Good options to generate aggro on the multiple mobs attracted are: [Thorns], [Demoralizing Roar], and Swipe. Besides those, when grouped up, paladin [Retribution Aura] can be a good help.

This skill is similar to the warrior's [Challenging Shout].
