Tips and tactics
- When used with wound and deadly/mind numbing poison it's very annoying for a priest in PvP, especially if they're not specced holy.
- Patch 4.0.1 (2010-10-12): Removed.
- Patch 3.0.8 (2009-01-20): Now drains a percentage of maximum mana.
- Patch 1.6.0 (2005-07-12): Spells that drain mana will now properly report the amount of mana gained in the combat log.
