  • Hand of Reckoning
  • Taunted.
  • Duration: 3 seconds

Hand of Reckoning is both a taunt and a pulling tool, available from trainers at level 16. It has a 30-yard range and deals Holy damage.

This is the single-target taunt for Paladins, widely-requested due to the somewhat complicated use of Righteous Defense, and it does not use the global cooldown.

Note

  • Hand of Reckoning does not count as a Hand spell.
  • Hand of Reckoning is a spell. It can't be cast when silenced, but based off testing on Growl and Dark Command, no longer suffers from miss chance when cast by a level 80 vs a boss-quality mob. Prior to Patch 4.0.1, it had a 17% chance to miss raid bosses (in contrast to the 8% chance to miss boss mobs for melee attacks). Prior to Patch 4.0.1, even if you were melee hit-capped (263 hit rating at level 80), Hand of Reckoning's chance to miss was still 7.0%. This gap was covered with [Glyph of Righteous Defense] (removed in Patch 4.0.1).

Patch changes

  • Wrath-Logo-Small/Cataclysm-Logo-Small Patch 4.0.1 (12-Oct-2010): Removed miss chance of this effect. (Untested, based of testing on Growl and Dark Command)
  • WoW Icon 16x16 Hotfix (2009-08-08): "Hand of Reckoning is no longer able to be used on targets that are immune to taunt, including players."
  • Wrath-Logo-Small Patch 3.2.0 (04-Aug-2009): Redesigned. Now does damage only when the target does not currently have the caster targeted, but damage done increased to 50% of attack power, occurring after the taunt effect is applied.
  • Wrath-Logo-Small Patch 3.1.0 (14-Apr-2009): Now affected by Benediction.
  • Wrath-Logo-Small Patch 3.0.8 (2009-01-20): Added.
