Background

The RPG Icon 16x36.png This section contains information from the Warcraft RPG which is considered non-canon.

A percentage of magi are, at heart, closet pyromaniacs. Not only do they call down fire on their enemies during battle, they find any other excuse to burn something down. A dwarven tinker adventurer developed the flame deflector because he was tired of getting caught in the collateral damage caused by his associate's overzealous spellcasting.

The flame deflector is a compact device fitted around the neck like a thick brace. Cooling elements housed in its thick pads sit on the wearer's shoulders, held there by straps slung under the armpits.[1]

Patch changes

  • WoW Icon.svg Patch 1.4.0 (2005-05-05): Flame Deflector now does an elemental damage absorb rather than a resistance increase.
