Here is a small list of changes to the Priest class that are expected to be implemented in the next content patch:
  • Prayer of Healing, Circle of Healing and Holy Nova (healing effect) now gain additional benefit from spell damage and healing bonuses.
  • Pain Suppression (Discipline Talent) is now usable on friendly targets, instantly reduces the target's threat by 5%, reduces damage taken by 40% and its cooldown has been reduced to 2 minutes.
  • Power Word: Shield now gains additional benefit from spell damage and healing bonuses. Base absorb values of ranks 10, 11 and 12 have been reduced.
  • Meditation (Discipline) increased to 10/20/30% mana regeneration.
  • Circle of Healing: The base amount of healing from this spell has been reduced along with increasing the bonus it receives from bonus healing effects. The net result is that characters with more than 1338 healing will see their Circle of Healing heal for more than previously, but those with less will see it heal for less.
  • Fear Ward is now available to all priests at level 20. Duration reduced to 3 minutes, cooldown increased to 3 minutes.
  • Chastise is the new spell available to dwarf and draenei priests at level 20. Chastise causes Holy damage and incapacitates the target for 2 seconds.

  • Elune's Grace (Night Elf Priest Racial) effect changed to reduce chance to be hit by melee and ranged attacks by 20% for 15 seconds. There is now only 1 rank of the spell.
  • Power Word: Fortitude, Divine Spirit, Prayer of Fortitude and Prayer of Spirit will have their mana costs reduced
