Patch changes

  • Warlords-Logo-Small Patch 6.2.0 (23-Jun-2015): Deadly Throw now reduces the target's movement speed by 70% (up from 50%) but no longer interrupts spellcasting when used with 5 combo points.
  • Warlords-Logo-Small Patch 6.0.2 (14-October-2014): Deadly Throw no longer has a minimum range.
  • Mists-Logo-Small Patch 5.2.0 (5-Mar-2013): Deadly Throw can now interrupt spellcasting when used at 3, 4 and 5 combo points, and upon interrupt prevents any spell in that school from being cast for 4, 5 and 6 seconds respectively, instead of 5 combo points and 6 seconds.
  • Mists-Logo-Small Patch 5.0.4 (28-August-2012): Updated.
  • Wrath-Logo-Small Patch 3.1.0 (14-Apr-2009): Missile speed increased.
  • Bc icon/ Wrath-Logo-Small Patch 3.0.2 (14-Oct-2008):  [High Warlord's Leather Gloves], [Gladiator's Leather Gloves], and [Opportunist's Leather Gloves] no longer grant the "Deadly Throw Interrupts Spellcasting" effect.
  • Bc icon Patch 2.3.0 (13-Nov-2007):  Missile speed increased significantly and snare duration increased slightly.
  • Bc icon Patch 2.1.0 (22-May-2007): This ability will now damage hunters and their pets when they are affected by The Beast Within or Bestial Wrath. Those targets will still be immune to the movement impairing portion of Deadly Throw.
