One of the new Azerite traits in World of Warcraft is Filthy Transfusion, which "Your damaging abilities have a chance to invoke a tainted swamp beneath the target, siphoning 3654 health from them over 6 sec."

If other monsters are standing in the pool, will it deal damage to them as well?

It's a single target skill.

With two or more targets it siphons health from the one with the debuff. You can however try to apply the spell on more than one target (depending on your haste value you may get enough procs).

Also Blizzard would have written the tooltip differently if it was an AoE skill. They used to write "nearby" or "any/all/x enemies" on AoE tooltips (pretty much like for the Azerite Globules).

  • Thanks! Sometimes I wish there was an advanced tooltip option, for this one I was pretty sure it was ST but some of their tool tips are lacking. Thanks! Commented Aug 17, 2018 at 12:41
