Patch changes

  • Hotfix (2010-11-23): "Pyroblast! made available by Hot Streak will no longer consume Clearcasting."
  • Cataclysm Patch 4.0.1 (2010-10-12): Now a Tier 3 and 1 Rank talent, down from Tier 9 and 3 Ranks. Your spells no longer trigger Arcane Missiles. Instead, your critical strikes with Fireball, Frostfire Bolt, Scorch, Pyroblast, or Fire Blast have a chance to cause your next Pyroblast spell cast within 15 sec to be instant cast and cost no mana.
  • Hotfix (2009-08-06): "Hot Streak triggers exactly as stated in its tooltip: “2 non-periodic spell criticals in a row using Fireball, Fire Blast, Scorch, Living Bomb, or Frostfire Bolt”. Only non-periodic damage interacts with it, and only those spells listed. Periodics do not affect the streak in any way. Direct damage from the listed spells always count, for or against the streak."
  • WotLK Patch 3.1.0 (2009-04-14): Sound has been changed (previously used the sound which played upon earning a new achievement).
  • WotLK Patch 3.0.8 (2009-01-20): Now also affected by [Living Bomb].
  • WotLK Patch 3.0.2 (2008-10-14): Added.
