Patch changes

  • MoP Patch 5.4.0 (2013-09-10): Combustion on targets affected by the Mage's [Ignite] now deals additional damage equal to 20% of Ignite's damage per tick (down from 50%).
  • Hotfix (2012-11-29): "The periodic damage from Combustion has been reduced by 50%."
  • MoP Patch 5.1.0 (2012-11-27): Periodic damage is now based only on the current Ignite, instead of both Ignite and Pyroblast. Damage has been increased to bring it up to approximately the same level as before.
  • Hotfix (2012-10-16): "Combustion direct damage that does not crit now causes Heating Up to be removed after a short delay. Additionally, the delay on non-crits removing Heating Up has been increased from 0.25sec to 0.5sec."
  • Hotfix (2012-09-14): "
    • Pyroblast and Combustion should combine to do the expected amount of damage and critical damage.
    • The initial damage of Combustion is now properly affected by Shatter, increasing its crit chance accordingly."
  • Hotfix (2012-09-12): "Combustion should no longer ignore target damage multipliers when calculating the damage of the Pyroblast DoT on the targe"
  • MoP Patch 5.0.4 (2012-08-28): Combustion now only affects [Pyroblast] and [Ignite], and will now stun its target. Cooldown reduced to 45 seconds.
  • Cataclysm Patch 4.3.0 (2011-11-29): Combustion’s periodic damage can now critically hit.
  • Hotfix (2011-07-26): "Combustion should no longer ignore damage modifiers on a target. As an example, Smoldering Elemental packs in the Firelands should no longer take full damage from Impact’s spread of Combustion, despite these creatures having damage reduction modifiers."
  • Cataclysm Patch 4.1.0 (2011-04-26): No longer has a global cooldown.
  • Cataclysm Patch 4.0.1 (2010-10-12): Redesigned.

  • WotLK Patch 3.2.0 (2009-08-04): Fire spell misses will no longer trigger this talent.
  • WoW Icon 16x16.png Patch 1.12.0 (2006-08-22): Reduced the number of messages that appear in the combat log when using Combustion.
