Tips Edit

  • Use right after a pull in a group of mobs, then Thunder Clap, wait for the stun effect to wear off and use Shield Block for initial damage mitigation and good threat boost. Requires the usage of Charge, Bloodrage or Rage Potion to provide sufficient Rage.
  • Can be used to (mass) counterspell and to stun running mobs, if timed correctly.
  • Because of the considerable damage, this skill should always be on cooldown along with Thunder Clap when AOE tanking. Care must be taken not to overlap this skill's stun debuff with the duration of Shield Block to maximize damage mitigation.

Patch changes Edit

  • Mists-Logo-Small Patch 5.2.0 (5-Mar-2013): Shockwave now has a 40-second cooldown (was 20 seconds), and striking 3 or more targets will reduce its cooldown by 20 seconds.
