Tips

  • Although this spell doesn't sound too useful, it doesn't cost much mana, and is instant cast. Sometimes, additional damage can help.
  • You should probably not cast this on non-melee classes (healer, mage), because the damage caused by thorns does increase aggro, making it harder to pull mobs off the caster. Conversely, you should cast this on melee classes so they can keep aggro and cause additional damage to mobs.
  • If you hold 3 Cenarion set pieces, the damage dealt by your Thorns are increased by 4 and the duration is extended of 50%. So, at the maximum rank (talent included), you can cast a 15 minute thorns which deal 35.5 damages to attackers.
