Dancing Rune Weapon is a level 57 Blood death knight ability that allows the death knight to summon a rune weapon to fight with them.

Patches and hotfixes

  • Legion Patch 7.0.3 (2016-07-19): Now increases parry chance by 40%, up from 20%. Cooldown increased from 1.5 minutes to 3 minutes.
  • WoD Patch 6.0.2 (2014-10-14):
    • Dancing Rune Weapon's summoned Rune Weapon now remains fixated on the death knight's target at the time of summoning, and copies the effects of talents that are tied to the death knight, such as [Blood Boil], [Frost Fever], or [Asphyxiate]. Should the original target be dead or otherwise unavailable, the Rune Weapon will switch to assist with the death knight's current target.
    • Now lasts 8 seconds (down from 12).
