Affects [Mind Blast]

Shadow Word: Void is a level 15 Shadow priest talent that replaces [Mind Blast].


Essentially an upgraded [Mind Blast], Shadow Word: Void features the following in comparison:

  • A second charge
  • A larger spell power co-efficient (130% vs 120%)
  • Higher Insanity generation (15 vs 12)

These bonuses come at the cost of the recharge period being 1.5s longer than Mind Blast's cooldown (before Haste).


  • The recharge period is reduced by Haste.
