Patch changes Edit

  • Mists-Logo-Small Patch 5.4.0 (10-Sep-2013) Soul Swap no longer does any damage, and now copies damage-over-time effects instead of just moving them without needing a glyph. Copied effects now once again preserve their power and duration. Duration has been reduced to 3 seconds (down from 20 seconds).
  • Cataclysm-Logo-Small Patch 4.0.6 (8-Feb-2011): Soul Swap can no longer be dispelled (the aura given to the warlock between swapping).
  • Wrath-Logo-Small/Cataclysm-Logo-Small Patch 4.0.1 (12-Oct-2010): Added.
