List of interesting things you can or can't copy:

Feel free to add any spells I missed you feel should be added. All purge, dispel and cleanse etc spells can be copied and are not listed.

The following applies to Dark Simulacrum:

-To copy a spell it REQUIRES mana to be spent.
-Physical abilities (even though they cost mana) cannot be copied (like Crusader Strike).
-You cannot copy pet summons (you can, however, copy pet abilities, same rules apply).
-Target's spell power will be copied (unsure now)
-Target's talents will NOT be copied
-Target's glyphs will NOT be copied
-Spell will be INSTANT cast, no matter what spell it is.
-Channeled spells will have to be channeled, making them poor choices for Dark Sim (although it's quite fun to copy Mind Control or Seduce for instance).
-The copied spell CAN be grounded, Dark Sim itself CANNOT.
-Dark Sim is applicable through immunities.
-Healing and Damage spells are generally very poor choices for Dark Sim, and are mostly not listed below.
-Upon using a copied spell, the cooldown on that spell will ALSO be copied (obviously only matters for spells with cooldown above 1 min.
-You can Dark Sim a Dark Simmed spell (for instance: a dk copied my druid's cyclone, druid called it out, and I copied the dk's cyclone).

:druid:
Things that work:
-Cyclone
-Entangling Roots
-Solar Beam
-Star Fall
-Typhoon
-Starsurge
Things that won't work:
-Shapeshifts
-Spells and attacks requiring shapeshifts.
-Barkskin
-Nature's Grasp
-Wild Mushroom
Things that are more or less useless:
-Swiftmend (can only be used if you have druid hots on yourself, and it will remove the hot)
-Faerie Fire

:mage:
Things that work:
-Polymorph
-Mirror Images (not really gamebreaking, but still fun)
-Dragon's Breath
-Pyroblast
-Living Bomb
-Counterspell
-Time Warp
-Ring of Frost
-Ice Block
-Blink
-Frost Nova
-Cone of Cold
-Mana Shield
-Ice Barrier
-Invisibility
-Deep freeze (you can copy this, but target will still need to be frozen, a hunter's freezing trap OR hungering cold both counts as frozen btw, so you can use that)
Things that won't work:
Things that are more or less useless:
-Icy Veins
-Slow Fall
-Deep Freeze (if you are not frost and don't have mage/hunter on team)
-Armors, Ice/Mage/Molten (unlikely this will ever be rebuffed in arena though, and they only last 1 min)

:paladin:
Things that work:
-Seals (yes you can copy this, only lasts 1 min, however)
-Hammer of Justice
-Divine Shield
-Divine Protection
-Hand of Protection
-Hand of Freedom (obviously debatable how "gamebreaking" that is)
-Avenging Wrath (aka wings)
-Holy Wrath
Things that won't work:
-Avenger's Shield (counts as a physical ability)
-Beacon of Light.
-Hammer of Wrath
-Any spell costing Holy Power (remember: requires mana to be spent)
Things that are more or less useless:
-Consecration

:priest:
Things that work:
-Pain Suppression
-Power Word: Barrier
-Power Word: Shield
-Divine Hymn
-Hymn of Hope
-Mass Dispel
-Fear Ward
-Psychic Scream
-Psychic Horror
-Silence
-Mind Control
-Leap of Faith (aka Life Grip)
-Guardian Spirit (unlikely you'll copy this in a proper pvp situation unless they make holy viable though)
Things that won't work:
Things that are more or less useless:
-Mana Burn (can burn a maximum of 20% of own mana, and we got 0 :()
-Levitate
-Inner Fire/Inner Will (also only lasts 1 min)

:shaman:
Things that work:
-Heroism/Bloodlust
-Hex
-Earthshield
Things that won't work:
-Thunderstorm
-Ghost Wolf
-Feral Spirits
-Totems
Things that are more or less useless:
-Spiritwalker's Grace

:warlock:
Things that work:
-Fear
-Death Coil
-Shadowfury
-Howl of Terror
-Chaos Bolt
-Infernal :cool:
-Unstable Affliction
-Succubus' Seduction
-Felhunter's Spell Lock
-Soul Swap
-Haunt (will increase the damage of your own dots)
Things that won't work:
-Drain Mana
Things that are more or less useless:
-Shadow Ward
-Drain Life
-Demon Soul
-Demonic Empowerment
-Hellfire
-Hand of Guldan (good spell in itself, but we don't copy talents, so it's crap for us)
-Armors, Fel etc (unlikely this will ever be rebuffed in arena though, and they only last 1 min)
-Soul Link (doesn't work on ghoul)
-Spells that requires Metamorphosis cannot be cast and just wastes Dark Sim.
-Demonic Portal (requires the circle, QQ)

Shadowform does NOT work. It was the very first thing I tested with my spriest friend the day cata came out. Also, you can steal pally seals. They only last 1 minute but they're pretty nice.
