Stoneform (also known as or similar to stone flesh[1] (WoWRPG 35), stoneskin[2] (A&HC 31) or avatar) is a dwarven racial ability that has many effects without a downside. It decreases damage taken, so handy for melee attacking and tanking. It rids yourself of all poisons, diseases, curses, magic, and bleeding.

Background Edit

The Titans crafted the dwarves from stone to assist them in creating the Azeroth of today. Since this discovery, the Ironforge dwarves zealously search for any sign of their ancestors or the Titans. This newfound knowledge also unlocked enchanted energies of their heritage, enabling Ironforge dwarves to perform spectacular feats. The dwarves have rediscovered the power to return to their original forms, and turning skin to stone. They firmly believe that other powers are waiting to awaken within them; all they need is the key.[3] (WRPG 40)[4] (MG 250)

Notes Edit

Tips Edit

  • Stoneform is incredible against rogues, and effective for any class. With this skill, even warrior, hunter, or rogue dwarves can dispel some of their debuffs, so it's a plus for soloing, especially when you are inflicted by diseases that tend to last for 5 to 30 minutes.
  • Since it removes bleed effects it is very useful during some raid encounters where you take heavy bleed damage and might otherwise die. Example: Moroes in Karazhan.

Patch changes Edit

  • Warlords-Logo-Small Patch 6.1.0 (24-Feb-2015): Stoneform when used, now triggers a 30-second shared cooldown with other PvP trinkets that breaks crowd-control effects.
  • Warlords-Logo-Small Patch 6.0.2 (14-October-2014): Will now also clear Magic and Curse effects.
  • Wrath-Logo-Small Patch 3.1.0 (14-Apr-2009): Stoneform no longer makes the user immune to poison, disease and bleed effects. Instead these effects will be cleared when cast. Cooldown reduced to 2 minutes from 3.
