  • The coefficient have been the same From release to nowadays. Except, weirdly, in TBC expansion patches.
  • Consecration deals 32% of bonus spell damage, and 32% of Attack Power, distributed evenly among 8 seconds.
  • The damage done can be increased by up to 10 % with the protection talent One-Handed Weapon Specialization.


  • Consecration used to be a talent in Holy tree. It has since become a baseline skill. Aura Mastery has taken its place in the talent tree.
  • Spell hit does affect this spell meaningfully. This is a reversal of consecrates independence from spell hit Pre-3.0. New tests from Elitist Jerks shows that Consecrate ticks can miss. If the first tick misses, it will show up as a Miss in the floating combat text, but subsequent misses will not show up in the combat log. In the event of a miss or misses you will see fewer than 8 ticks during the time consecrate is active.
