- This aura's effect is not triggered if you resist the spell, but it still works if you absorb the damage with [Power Word: Shield].
- Prior to Patch 1.10.0, this was a temporary weapon buff that gave the weapon a chance to drain mana and deal an equal amount of shadow damage per mana drained.
Tips and tactics
- Although Feedback is a highly situational spell (both due to the duration and cooldown), it can be extremely useful in some situations. For example, a mage's [Pyroblast] can be successfully countered by quickly casting [Power Word: Shield] and Feedback.
- This spell appears to proc on every tick of a channeled spell. Because of this, using it when attacked by channeled spells is a very fast and mana efficient way to hurt an enemy caster's mana, channel time, and health.
