Hand of Freedom was a core paladin ability learned at level 52. As of Patch 3.0.2 this ability replaced the former [Blessing of Freedom][citation needed] and works in the same way, but uses the Hand system to prevent conflicts with Blessings. It was removed when Blessing of Freedom returned in Legion-Logo-Small Legion.

Tips & tactics Edit

  • Hand of Freedom will remove the effects of Player Daze, but is useless against Creature Daze.
  • In Warsong Gulch, when protecting the flag carrier, take note of the number of enemy priests or shaman around before casting Hand of Freedom. They can easily dispel it. Also, a mage can spellsteal it.
