  • Fade
  • Reduced threat level. Enemies have a reduced attack range against you.
  • Duration: 10 seconds

Fade is a level 9 priest spell, used for temporary aggro reduction while in groups. It also reduces enemy aggro radius when active.


Fade itself is not useful in single combat, or in escaping a target while not in a group. Fade only reduces your threat relative to the mob's other possible targets.
