lmao - I just noticed what I wrote!  Evanescence is a
band...Efflorecence is a proc!

What does 'proc' mean or stand for?

According to wowwiki -

"Proc is a common term used primarily in game programming to refer to
an event - a "procedure" - triggered under particular circumstances.
For example, in WoW, a particular weapon (that hits many times) might
have a 10% chance on each hit to apply a special effect, such as
poison damage. When WoW users talk about "how often this weapon
procs", they are talking about the likelihood of the special effect
occurring."
