Tips & tactics Edit

  • This ability will not remove the Daze effect caused by running from mobs. However, this ability has been used to great effect against Hunters, Rogues, Paladins, and more who all have the ability to "daze" other players (especially against those whose use of it is critical to their strategy). Hand of Freedom will remove the effects of Player Daze, but is useless against Creature Daze.
  • In Warsong Gulch, when protecting the flag carrier, take note of the number of enemy priests or shaman around before casting Hand of Freedom. They can easily dispel it. Also, a level 70 mage can spellsteal it.

Patch changes Edit

  • Wrath-Logo-Small Patch 3.3.0 (08-Dec-2009): It is no longer possible to use this ability while under the effects of the druid spell Cyclone. In addition, disconnecting while rooted will no longer sometimes trigger casting this on oneself.
  • Wrath-Logo-Small Patch 3.2.2 (2009-09-22): This ability now correctly removes the snaring component of Infected Wounds and Frostfire Bolt.
