Each blast of arcane power strikes its target more quickly than the last.

Arcane Blast is a mage ability learned at level 10 for those who have chosen the Arcane specialization. It deals direct arcane damage, generating an [Arcane Charge] each time. So long as one charge remains active, it increases both the damage and cost of the spell. With careful management, the mage can use this spell to trade off damage per mana versus damage per second.

Equipment

Patch changes

  • Wrath-Logo-Small Patch 3.2.2 (2009-09-22): The buff from using this ability now stacks up to 4 times instead of 3, and each application increases mana cost by 175% instead of 200%. In addition, the duration of the buff has been reduced to 6 seconds.
  • Wrath-Logo-Small Patch 3.2.0 (04-Aug-2009): Mana cost reduced by 12%.
  • Wrath-Logo-Small Patch 3.1.0 (14-Apr-2009): Stacking effect is no longer considered a Magic effect and will not be dispelled.
    Formerly it was considered a harmful magical effect and would be dispelled by friendly casters, sometimes by accident, other times because of other magic debuffs.
  • Wrath-Logo-Small Patch 3.0.8 (2009-01-20): This ability has been significantly changed. Arcane Blast now increases the damage of the next Arcane spell by 15%. However, using Arcane Blast itself does not consume the charge itself. Each time you cast Arcane Blast, the damage of Arcane spells is increased by 15% and the mana cost of Arcane Blast is increased by 200%. This effect stacks up to 3 times and lasts 10 seconds or until any Arcane damage spell except Arcane Blast is cast.
  • Bc icon/Wrath-Logo-Small Patch 3.0.2 (14-Oct-2008): The debuff was changed from a cast time reduction to a pure damage increase, and the mana cost penalty was massively increased. Debuff duration changed from 8 to 3 seconds.
  • Bc icon Patch 2.1.0 (22-May-2007): The Arcane Blast debuff can no longer be dispelled.
  • Bc icon Patch 2.1.0 (22-May-2007): A data error was fixed that was causing Arcane Blast to generate more threat than intended.
