Patches and hotfixes

  • Legion Patch 7.0.3 (2016-07-19): Duration reduced from 1 minute to 30 seconds.
    While [Hand of Protection] has been replaced by [Blessing of Protection], the debuff still mentions Hand of Protection.
  • Cataclysm Patch 4.0.6 (2011-02-08): The duration has been lowered to 1 minute, down from 2. [Lay on Hands] now causes Forbearance on the target. It used to only cause it when cast on the paladin. Since only [Divine Shield], Lay on Hands and [Hand of Protection] cause Forbearance, the tooltips have been adjusted to better explain the mechanic.
  • Cataclysm Patch 4.0.1 (2010-10-12): Forbearance affect no longer includes Divine Protection, and no longer restricts the use of Avenging Wrath.
  • Wrath of the Lich King Patch 3.3.0 (2009-12-08): [Lay on Hands] now causes Forbearance if the paladin casts it on his or herself.
  • Wrath of the Lich King Patch 3.0.8 (2009-01-20): [Divine Shield], [Divine Protection], and Avenging Wrath cannot be used within 30 seconds of each other anymore. Forbearance removed from Avenging Wrath.
  • Wrath of the Lich King Hotfix (2008-10-31): Duration reduced to 2 minutes. Avenging Wrath causes Forbearance again.
  • Wrath of the Lich King Patch 3.0.2 (2008-10-14): Duration increased to 3 minutes. Avenging Wrath no longer causes Forbearance.
