While diminishing returns mostly applies to player characters, some abilities also have diminishing returns in Pv E.The table below contains a list of abilities that are affected by DR, and under what circumstances. Effects within the same category share diminishing returns.
Note that when used against another player, effects will only last for their Pv P duration, often far shorter than the duration stated in the ability's tooltip. Spells must be used on the same target within 18 seconds of the * end* of the duration in order to be diminished.Each ability shares diminishing returns with the other abilities it has been listed with, and no others. Warlords of Draenor will see dramatic adjustments to existing diminishing returns categories.For as long as war has raged, heroes from every race have aimed to master the art of battle.However, most player fear effects can be modified with glyphs to instead cause their targets to tremble in place, making them viable for use in Pv E.Diminishing returns means that certain spells and abilities become less effective against a target if used frequently within a short period of time.
Monsters affected by Fear may also run into groups of monsters, alerting their friends which then come running into the fight.
