Notes Edit

  • Its debuff has no classification, hence it cannot be dispelled.
  • When attacking a druid with Mind Flay, shapeshifting cancels it.
  • Similarly, if the target uses a PvP trinket, it removes Mind Flay, due to the snare.
  • Mind Flay does additional threat. This is most likely due to its snare.
  • This spell is popularly referred to as the "face melter" due to the ray that usually targets the opponent's face.
  • This ability replaces Smite.
