Impact is a mage talent that gives each spell a chance to give your Fire Blast a stun effect, up to a 10% chance at max rank 2. The talent can proc off any spell, however it requires 7 points in the fire tree to get the full 10%, so it finds most of its use in fire builds. The talent is most useful in PvP where the short stuns can help to disrupt opponents. It can be useful in solo PvE as well as trash mobs in dungeons, though in a majority of raid encounters (including trash mobs) the targets will be immune to any stun.

Enemy spell casts may be interrupted (albeit somewhat unreliably) by using a quick succession of instant or low cast time spells such as Scorch, Fire Blast, Dragon's Breath, Blast Wave, Arcane Explosion, Ice Lance, Cone of Cold, and others.

Patch 3.0.2 moved this talent from tier 1 to tier 3, and reduced the max rank from 5 points to 3. Also, the talent previously only affected fire spells, not all spells.
