  • Underwater Breathing. Swim speed increased by 20%.
  • Duration: 10 minutes

Unending Breath is a level 24 warlock spell, cast on themselves or their allies to help them breathe underwater and increase their swim speed for 10 minutes.


Up until patch 3.0.2, Unending Breath was considered a magical effect and was capable of being dispelled. Warlocks would often use this spell as "dispel trash" to keep more important buffs like [Demon Armor] or [Arcane Intellect] from being easily dispelled by the enemy players.
