Build 12803 - Thorns

Thorns has received an overhaul in this latest build.

With 4058 Spellpower and in Moonkin Form (which now gives +10% Arcane/Nature dmg) it hits for 794 damage.

This is a massive change and will be interesting to see whether it will be nerfed in much the same way that it was in early WotLK. Fast hitting enemies (namely Rogues) really take a beating from this.


  1. I'd much rather see it hit the target for a percentage of damage that is being done to you, not unlike eye for an eye.

  2. Yeah, I'm not really decided on this. It is, however, much more interesting than its old form. Especially since it's still castable on other players; PvP tricks and PvE group synergy ftw :)

    I think you're right in that it'd be better off as a percentage of damage dealt, mainly due to it then affecting all melee evenly and thus be much easier to balance.
