Pummel Usable by Class Warrior Properties Type Offensive School Physical Casting time Instant Cooldown 15 sec Level required 24
The first, best solution to anything.
Pummel is a core warrior ability learned at level 24. It is a single target instant attack and debuff. It does no damage, but if applied during a target's 'casting' charge-up, will make the spell fail and prevent casting of any spell in the same school for four seconds. It has a 15 second cooldown.
PvP raiding is too hectic for this to be that useful, but in a one-on-one PvP duel, this is definitely a match winner for the otherwise magic-vulnerable warrior. With the release of Patch 3.0.2, Pummel has come off the Global Cooldown. As such, it now allows for a lot more latitude.
Now usable in all stances. Replaced (26-Apr-2011): Patch 4.1.0 Shield Bash for all warriors.
/ Pummel now only has one rank, no longer causes damage, and is no longer affected by Global Cooldown. (14-Oct-2008): Patch 3.0.2
Interrupting a channeled spell with this ability will now always properly prevent casting spells from the same spell school for 4 sec. (13-Nov-2007): Patch 2.3.0 Added. (18-Dec-2004): Patch 1.2.0
