Patch changes

  • WoW Icon 16x16 Patch 3.2.0 (2009-08-04): This talent has been reduced to 2 points for 25/50% snare and no longer increases damage done by the death knight. It has also been moved one tier earlier in the tree and its spell effect has been made more transparent.
  • WoW Icon 16x16 Patch 3.1.0 (2009-04-14): This talent now has a 100% chance to be triggered. Additional points in the talent increase the damage bonus and snare magnitude instead of increasing the chance.
  • WoW Icon 16x16 Patch 3.0.8 (2009-01-20): Will no longer break stealth.
