|The subject of this article was removed from World of Warcraft in patch 5.0.4.
Paralysis is a tier 5 Shadow priest talent that causes critical hits from to slow the target by 100% for 2/4 seconds.
- The Paralysis effect itself is physical and can therefore be dodged.
- The debuff increases the crit chance of Mind Blast on the target by up to 90%, effectively guaranteeing a Paralysis proc from every Mind Blast. When combined with , this can provide 4 seconds of Paralysis every 6.5 seconds.
- As a magic debuff, Paralysis can be dispelled.
While similar in effect to a root, Paralysis in fact reduces the target's run speed by 100%. While this should have the same effect as a root, it causes some targets to continue their run animation while Paralysed.
