Dispersion is a priest ability learned at level 60 for those with the Shadow specialization. Dispersion protects the priest by reducing damage taken by 90% for six sec. Dispersion can be cast while stunned, feared or silenced, which makes it very useful in PvP as well.

It can be used to soak large (AoE) hits that would kill even a well-geared tank.

Notes Edit

  • Since Dispersion is a physical ability it cannot be dispelled.
