    • FW stacks are not generated by most physical AoE attacks.
    • Some AoE attacks are flagged as a kind of melee attack, and will trigger FW. These are fairly rare unfortunately.

Levitate

Levitate

  • Levitate is cancelled when damage is taken.
  • Levitate can be used to move over some specific ground effects without being affected (debuffs or taking damage), but most will still hit the levitated target.
  • Levitate can not be cast on a target that is not in your party or raid.

Mass Resurrection

Mass Resurrection aka. Mass, Mass Res

  • Mass Resurrection casts are cancelled if you enter combat during the cast

Mind Soothe

Mind Soothe aka. Soothe

Mind Vision

Mind Vision

  • Can be cast while already channelling Mind Vision on a new target, effectively letting you chain it infinitely. This lets you explore continents or raid/dungeon zones so long as you can target (or /target) new allies/enemies to cast the next Mind Vision on.

Power Word: Fortitude

Power Word: Fortitude

Power Word: Shield

Power Word: Shield aka. pw:s, shield

TODO: Check to see what's changed in Dragonflight now PW:S has received some changes.

Prayer of Mending

Prayer of Mending (default talent) aka. PoM

Psychic Scream

Psychic Scream

Purify

Purify (magic only) aka. Dispel, Cleanse

  • Removes all magic and disease effects when cast on a friendly target.
  • Casting purify on a target that doesn’t dispel any magic or disease debuffs, does not cause Purify to go on cooldown, but still costs mana.
  • Confusingly despite being called Purify, it is most commonly referred to as Dispel and sometimes even Dispel Magic (not to be confused with the Holy Priest spell Dispel Magic of the same name), or the paladin magic dispel Cleanse.

Renew

Renew (default talent)

caution

TODO: Check to see what's changed in Dragonflight now Renew has received some changes.

  • The amount of Renew ticks are modified by haste. Haste doesn’t increase the duration of Renew, just increase the number of ticks inside its regular duration.
  • Renew scales linearly with haste with no breakpoints, resulting in a micro-tick of Renew to account for additional haste outside of added Renew ticks.
  • Due to an effect commonly referred to as Pandemic, if renew is refreshed with less than 3 seconds remaining, that time is added on to the regular 15 seconds.
  • Refreshing renew with more than 3 seconds remaining will only increase the remaining duration of Renew to 18 seconds (15 base + 3 extra).

Resurrection

Resurrection aka. Res

  • Resurrection casts are cancelled if you enter combat during the cast

Shadow Word: Pain

Shadow Word: Pain aka. SW:P, Pain
