|Casting time||Unknown sec cast|
Bane is a warlock talent which reduces the casting time of key damage spells in the Destruction tree: Immolate, Shadow Bolt, Chaos Bolt and Soul Fire.
||Soul Fire reduction
At rank 5, Immolate's cast time will be 1.5 sec, Chaos Bolt will be 2 sec, most ranks of Shadow Bolt will be 2.5 sec, and Soul Fire will be 4 sec.
This talent is a nice boost to Immolate and Chaos Bolt, but has a much greater effect on Shadow Bolt. It works out to slightly more than 20% increase in DPS when spamming Shadow Bolts.
- Patch 1.8.0 (10-Oct-2005): Now reduces casting time of the Soul Fire spell in addition to Immolate and Shadow Bolt.
