The effects of this glyph stack with the Affliction talent Nightfall (warlock talent), effectively boosting your chance to get an instant cast Shadowbolt by 3.84% due to chance that Nightfall's and Glyph's can proc at same time, giving exactly same buff. However if you don't have Nightfall (warlock talent), gives a normal effect.

Patches and hotfixes

  • Mists of Pandaria Patch 5.0.4 (2012-08-28): Removed. Existing glyphs converted to [Glyph of Siphon Life].
  • Hotfix (2011-02-18): "Instant-cast Shadowbolts from Shadow Trance (both the talent and Glyph of Corruption versions) should no longer consume charges of [Backdraft] if both procs are available. Shadow Trance will always take priority and be consumed first when Backdraft is active. Subsequent Shadowbolts will consume Backdraft stacks."
  • Wrath of the Lich King Patch 3.0.2 (2008-10-14): Added.
