Water Breathing is a shaman utility spell that gives a buff to friendly targets which allows them to breathe under water.
The spell requires a reagent, [Shiny Fish Scales], which is dropped by most aquatic mobs. There is a minor glyph available that removes the reagent cost.
Tips and tactics
- Warlocks have a similar spell, [Unending Breath], that requires no reagent. If there is a Warlock in your group and you do not have the glyph to remove the reagent cost, allow them to buff. In addition, Warlocks can also obtain a Glyph which increases swim speed if buffed with Unending Breath, another potential benefit to letting them do it.
Patch 3.0.2 (2008-10-14): Water Breathing is no longer a Magic buff, and thus can no longer be dispelled.
