Patches and hotfixes

  • Legion Patch 7.0.3 (2016-07-19): Changed from a level 60 talent to a level 50 Arcane mage ability. No longer removes damage over time effects. Cooldown increased to 2 minutes (from 1.5 minutes). Now reduces damage by 60% (from 90%).
  • Warlords of Draenor Hotfix (2014-12-15): Greater Invisibility should now correctly be counting as dispelling two damage over time effects instead of canceling them.
  • Mists of Pandaria Patch 5.2.0 (2013-03-05): Now has a 90-second cooldown (was 2.5 minutes).
  • Mists of Pandaria Patch 5.0.4 (2012-08-28): Re-added.
  • PTR client.png Patch 0.9 (2004-08-17): Removed.
