Patches and hotfixes

  • Legion Patch 7.1.5 (2017-01-10): Removed.
  • Legion Patch 7.0.3 (2016-07-19): Changed to an honor talent. No longer cost a Soul Shard but has a 20 second cooldown. Now lasts for 10 seconds (up from 3 seconds) and deals 6% of the target's total health in Shadow damage.
  • Warlords of Draenor Patch 6.0.2 (2014-10-14): Now costs 1 Soul Shard.
  • Mists of Pandaria Patch 5.4.0 (2013-09-10): No longer does any damage, and now copies damage-over-time effects instead of just moving them without needing a glyph. Copied effects now once again preserve their power and duration. Duration has been reduced to 3 seconds (down from 20 seconds).
  • Cataclysm Hotfix (2011-01-05): Friendly Grounding Totems are no longer affected by a warlock's Soul Swap or Soul Swap Exhale. The Grounding Totem is not despawning on either cast, and Soul Swap is working correctly when moving damage-over-time effects to other targets that are near the totem.
  • Cataclysm Patch 4.0.1 (2010-10-12): Added.
