Bind Elemental is a core shaman ability learned at level 72. It allows shamans to hold a hostile elemental in place.
- Patch 4.2.0 (28-Jun-2011): Bind Elemental no longer causes creatures to attack players when it is cast. The creature will not attack the player when the crowd control wears off, and nearby creatures will not become hostile to the player either. However, if a visible player gets too close to the target creature, the creature will remember and attack the player when the crowd control effect wears off. The intent is to make it easier for dungeon groups to manage crowd control assignments and pulling packs of hostile NPCs.
- / Patch 4.0.1 (12-Oct-2010): Added.
