Patch changes

  • Shadowlands Patch 9.0.1 (2020-10-13): Re-added. Now affects application chance for all poisons, and now also causes poisons to apply to weapons 33% faster. Additional rank added.
  • Legion Patch 7.0.3 (2016-07-19): Removed.
    As Assassination is the only specialization using poisons, it's highly unlikely this is still in the game, regardless what database sites say.
  • Mists of Pandaria Patch 5.0.4 (2012-08-28): Improves Wound Poison instead of Instant Poison.
  • Cataclysm Patch 4.0.1 (2010-10-12): Changed from an Assassination talent to an Assassination specialization.
  • Wrath of the Lich King Patch 3.3.0 (2009-12-08): Bonus chance to trigger Deadly Poison from this talent increased.
  • WoW Icon update.png Patch 1.12.0 (2006-08-22): Added. Replaced [Improved Instant Poison] and [Improved Deadly Poison].
