Notes Edit

  • Although this causes no extra threat specifically, doing normal weapon damage to four enemies at once can go a long way to keeping aggro in a cluster of mobs.
  • Be careful of crowd control with whirlwind however. You shouldn't be breaking your teammates sheep/shackle/seduce.
  • This attack also has an additional use in PvP - due to the fact it can hit anyone in melee range regardless of where they are attacking you from, it can be used to teach a lesson to that irritating Rogue who is constantly backstabbing you. Also works on getting Druids out of Stealth.
  • With its 8 yard range, it can hit enemies in your dead zone (Allows you to hit enemies too close for you to intercept / charge, yet still far enough that if they're out of your melee range, you can hit them).
