Tips Edit

  • The chance to hit with this ability is improved by adding hit rating.
  • This spell is the primary pulling tool of protection paladins; it is ranged, does holy damage, and strikes up to three targets.
  • Avenger's Shield hits each target with a 7% spell damage coefficiant and another 7% attack power coefficient.
  • This ability is a Smart Spell.
  • In PvP, this ability is best used as an interrupt to spellcasters, due to its interrupt ability and 3 second silence. Combined with [Grand Crusader] and [Rebuke], the protection paladin can keep a spellcaster bereft of spells for significant bursts of time.

Trivia Edit

  • The ability is a reference to Captain America (who is a member of the superhero group known as The Avengers), and his ability to ricochet his shield off of multiple targets and return to him.

  • Cataclysm-Logo-Small Patch 4.0.6 (8-Feb-2011): The Silence debuff from Avenger’s Shield was using the Dazed visual effect, and its Daze debuff did not have a visible effect. This has been remedied.

  • Bc icon Patch 2.4.0 (25-Mar-2008): This spell will not 'jump' to targets that are under the effects of crowd control (such as sap or polymorph. There are some exceptions to this, such as fear, Avenger's Shield will still bounce to targets affected by fear.
  • Bc icon Patch 2.1.0 (22-May-2007): Avenger’s Shield no longer has a minimum range. It may be used on any target within 30 yards.; The damage portion of this ability will now be applied even if the victim is immune to snare.
  • Bc icon Patch 2.0.10 (2007-03-06): The slowing affect from "Avenger’s Shield" is now considered a snare, so snare removal and immunity affects will now work on it.
