  • Redoubt
  • Block chance increased by Y%. Lasts maximum of 5 blocks.
  • Duration: 10 seconds.

Redoubt was a talent in the Protection tree, you had to spend 3 points in Protection to max it.

Talent Overview

  • It was not adequate to rely on this skill to be uncrushable, as it proc'd off randomly.
  • For uncrushable tankadins, the extra blocking from Redoubt was useless when tanking a single target. However, during AoE tanking, where [Holy Shield] was sure to expire quickly, the frequent Redoubt procs helped mitigate significant amount of damage.

Patch changes

  • Cataclysm Patch 4.0.1 (2010-10-12): Removed.
  • WoW Icon update.png Patch 1.1.1 (2004-11-17): Now lasts either 10 seconds or five blocks, whichever comes first.
