  • Magic
  • Cripple
  • Movement speed reduced by 40%. Time between melee and ranged attacks increased by 45%.
  • Duration: 20 sec

Cripple reduces the melee, ranged, and movement speed of its opponents.

Notes

The movement speed reduction does not affect targets which are immune to movement slowing effects.

A variation of this ability was proposed to be a new warlock spell in the Wrath of the Lich King expansion but was later dropped.

Patches and hotfixes

  • Cataclysm Patch 4.0.1 (2010-10-12): Removed.
  • Wrath of the Lich King Hotfix (2009-05-13): The Doomguard's ability Cripple now reduces ranged and melee attack speed by 20% instead of 45%. Cripple's slowing effect does not stack with other slowing effects such as Thunderclap and [Infected Wounds].
  • WoW Icon update.png Patch 1.12.0 (2006-08-22): Due to haste effect change, the tooltip has been changed to 45%.
  • WoW Icon update.png Patch 1.6.0 (2005-07-12): Targets that are immune to movement slowing effects will no longer be affected by Cripple's movement slowing effect. Melee and ranged attack speed slowing effects will still affect these targets.
