Every Man for Himself is a human racial ability introduced in Patch 3.0.2. It removes all stun effects as of Legion-Logo-Small Legion. Previously, it was significantly more useful by removing all movement impairing effects and all effects which could cause loss of control of your character.


  • Legion-Logo-Small Legion significantly nerfed this ability, but it still remains helpful.
  • A 30-second cooldown is shared with other similar effects (i.e. PvP trinkets). It effectively gives you a free trinket slot when doing PvP, since you don't have to devote one for that ability.
