Removed from game The subject of this section was removed from World of Warcraft in patch 4.0.3a.


  • Oil of Immolation has a number of distinct uses: in PvE, it helps the Tank to gain extra threat on multiple targets (since the damage accumulates and is actually quite significant compared to things like [Retribution Aura],  [Naglering] and so on). Also, a raid group can cause a significant amount of extra AoE in a confined area, such as when fighting High Priestess Arlokk and her panthers. In PvP, it is useful for spotting hidden rogues, for classes that don't have AoE or [Stealth] detection. Never forget to drink your Oil of Immolation when approaching a seemingly unguarded flag!

Patch changes
