Level learned 58
It is as with Mannoroth's blood curse—a spiritual problem requires a spiritual solution.[1]

Purge is a level 58 shaman ability that removes a "Magic" buff effect from one enemy target. It is similar to a priest's [Dispel Magic]. The spell will also be cast if a target is immune through some mechanism such as [Ice Block] or [Banish].


This ability should not be confused with the Purge spell from Warcraft III Shaman units; this spell does not slow the movement of the target nor inflict damage to summoned creatures.
