  • This spell cannot be used during combat. Hearthstone can be used during combat, but it will be interrupted if the user takes any damage.
  • You can destroy your hearthstone to free up an inventory slot. If you do so the next time you change your home you will be given another one.
  • You can reduce the Cooldown to 7.5 minutes by glyphing it.
  • By setting your hearthstone to a central place, such as Dalaran, you can then go to a less crowded and hectic place (such as Thunder Bluff for Horde or the Exodar or Darnassus for Alliance) to take care of business only available in the Old World. With a second Hearthstone, you can quickly return to the action once your business is completed.

Patch changes
