Notes

  • Silences all enemies in an 8 yard radius around the blood elf for 2 seconds. In addition to the silence effect, Arcane Torrent also regenerates a small amount of your resource, depending on class.
  • Does not trigger the GCD.
  • Arcane Torrent is a very useful racial ability, especially in PvP.

Lore

Blood elves use Arcane Torrent to control their thirst for magic, by allowing them to control and release what they absorb as a torrent of arcane energy.[2] Failure to do so would ultimately result in their becoming one of the Wretched.[2]

Patches and hotfixes

  • Wrath of the Lich King Patch 3.3.0 (2009-12-08): Updated tooltip to include the functionality that this ability also interrupts spellcasting on NPCs. In addition, this ability will now be properly noted and displayed as an interrupt in the cast bar UI.
  • Wrath of the Lich King Patch 3.2.0 (2009-08-04): This ability will also apply a 3 second interrupt effect against non-player controlled targets, making it more versatile against creatures immune to silencing effects.
  • Wrath of the Lich King Patch 3.0.8 (2009-01-20): All Silence spells now have diminishing returns. This includes: Arcane Torrent.
  • Wrath of the Lich King Patch 3.0.2 (2008-10-14): Originally, Arcane Torrent consumed charges of [Mana Tap], with increased effect per charge. Patch 3.0.2 removed Mana Tap and gave Arcane Torrent a flat effect.
