Tips Edit

  • This is very handy in groups and on raids when you're not being hit, but your ability to keep fighting over a long period of time is important.
  • Unlike Frost Armor, this will not slow your attackers, so don't leave this up when running through a dangerous area.
  • In PvP the 25% debuff time reduction can be a life-saver, especially when facing Warlocks, since a great deal of their damage comes from damage over time effects and dispellable curses.
