Mass Dispel is a level 42 priest ability that dispels magic within a 15 yard radius of the targeted area, dispelling all harmful debuffs from friendly targets and 1 beneficial buff from enemy targets, affecting up to 5 friendly and 5 enemy targets.


Mass Dispel from the TCG.

  • As of the patch 9.1.0 hotfix on 2021-7-20, when Mass Dispel dispels multiple targets, the order of dispels is now random. Prior to this hotfix, the spell targets those closest to the center of the green targeting circle first and then moves outward.
  • Mass Dispel is able to remove normally undispellable Magic effects such as [Ice Block] and [Divine Shield].
  • For shadow priests, the mana cost of mass dispel is increased to 11.36% of base mana. This does not factor in the 80% reduction to shadow's mana pool size, causing mass dispel to cost more than half of the caster's maximum mana.
