Patch Changes
June 25, 2024
  • This trait now triggers after using a healing skill instead of when critically hit. Reduced the internal cooldown to 15 seconds in all game modes.
October 26, 2021
  • Multiplicative damage reduction enhancements have been updated to display how much damage was reduced by rather than displaying how much the damage is multiplied by. For example, protection now displays "-33% Damage" instead of "67% damage." This is not a change to functionality; it is only a change to display the bonus in a more intuitively understandable way.
October 05, 2021
  • All effects that provide a percentage reduction to incoming damage have been standardized to stack multiplicatively.
February 25, 2020 Competitive content update:
  • (Competitive split) Increased cooldown from 30 seconds to 60 seconds.
March 27, 2018
  • Increased the cooldown from 20 seconds to 30 seconds in PvP only.
June 23, 2015 Specialization update:
  • Soothing Ice has been added to the game and replaced Soothing Wave.
