  • World of Warcraft: Cataclysm Patch 4.3.2 (31-Jan-2012): Deterrence now also reduces damage taken by 30% while active.
  • World of Warcraft: Cataclysm Patch 4.1.0 (26-Apr-2011): Deterrence no longer requires a melee weapon to be equipped.; The area damage of the paladin ability Hammer of the Righteous will no longer hit hunters with Deterrence active.
