Flare is a hunter ability learned at level 38. It reveals any stealthed units within 10 yards for 20 seconds. It costs 1Gold 35Silver to learn from a trainer.

Notes Edit

  • If you have a suspicion there's a hidden or invisible unit in an area, you can Flare to reveal any of them. This can be especially useful in PvP or in places where you know there are stealthed mobs, such as the western wing of Dire Maul.
  • Using Flare now leaves a bright light on the ground, possibly alerting stealthed units you are nearby.
  • There is a brief period of time after using the spell that a rogue, if properly positioned, can sneak in before the flare effect begins and get an opener off.

Patch changesEdit

  • Bc icon Patch 2.1.0 (22-May-2007): Flare cooldown increased to 20 seconds, and duration reduced to 20 seconds.
  • Bc icon Patch 2.0.3 (09-Jan-2007): The hunter spell "Flare" will now properly reveal Mages that used "Invisibility".
  • WoW Icon 16x16 Patch 1.7.0 (13-Sep-2005): Fixed the tooltip to accurately reflect the actual radius of the effect.
