Patch changes

  • Mists of Pandaria Patch 5.0.4 (2012-08-28): Removed.
  • Cataclysm Patch 4.1.0 (2011-04-26): Cooldown is now 3 minutes, up from 2. Also reduced to a 30yd effective range.
  • Cataclysm Patch 4.0.1 (2010-10-12): Redesigned. Has become an active spell, previously being passive. Replaces [Divine Sacrifice] (previously a requirement for Divine Guardian) as an active spell for reducing damage upon party and raid members. As a result, now has 1 rank, down from 2. No longer affects [Sacred Shield] due to its removal from the game, nor affects the caster anymore. The talent has also been moved from Tier 4 (Divine Sacrifice previously being on Tier 3) to Tier 5.
  • Wrath of the Lich King Patch 3.3.0 (2009-12-08): This talent no longer increases the amount of damage transferred to the paladin from Divine Sacrifice. Instead it causes all raid and party members to take 10/20% reduced damage while Divine Sacrifice is active.
  • Wrath of the Lich King Patch 3.1.0 (2009-04-14): Now increases the effectiveness of Divine Sacrifice by an additional 5/10%, and increases the duration of Sacred Shield by 50/100% and the amount absorbed by 10/20%.
