  • Update 1: This passive ability's magicka restore will no longer erroneously trigger on damage-over-time ticks, or multiple times for a single ability cast.[2]
  • Update 5: This ability will no longer agro monsters. Using this ability on a target that is already affected now properly refreshes the duration instead of removing it. This ability also now has a graphical effect.[3]


  • Update 6: This ability now has no cost and can be applied to multiple targets, and now afflicts the target (or targets) with the debuff Major Spell Resistance Reduction for 18 seconds.[1]
