Demoralizing shout is a level 50 Protection warrior ability.
- Cannot be used while silenced.
Tips and Tactics
- Demoralizing Shout is an ability that reduces damage done by enemies in a 10 yard radius. Demoralizing shout will pull non-hostile monsters and will put you into PvP mode if it hits nearby hostile players while in your own territory, so be careful with it.
- Typically useful while tanking, as you naturally want to take less damage.
- Brings stealthed units out of stealth if it hits them.
- Obviously this skill should be used when fighting multiple mobs where its effects are multiplied. However it is even worth using against a single enemy, even one that is slightly inferior. The damage reduction is noticeable and it is cheap to apply. For solo grinding on melee mobs, many warriors start off with a charge followed by demoralizing shout.
- Be aware if there are neutral mobs nearby using demoralizing shout (or any other debuff) will cause them to turn hostile and attack.
- Does not break crowd control.
