Requirements

Shattering Throw is a warrior ability that deals ranged damage or removes any invulnerabilities. It is learned through using  [Glyph of Shattering Throw].

Tips and tactics

  • This ability is commonly used to remove a paladin's [Divine Shield] and a mage's [Ice Block]. These spells generally cannot be removed; only Shattering Throw and a priest's glyphed [Mass Dispel] can remove them.
  • One of the few ranged attacks available to warriors, especially when rooted.
  • With a 5-minute cooldown, this is often saved until its immunity removing effect is required. However, it can also be useful for its ranged damage.
  • Shattering Throw first attempts to deal damage before removing any immunities. For this reason it is common to see 'Immune' messages when using this on immune targets, despite the ability correctly removing the target's immunity.
