ETA: Don’t you hate those typos that don’t show up because they’re another word spelled correctly? Yeah. So do I.
If you want a more technical, in-depth review of priest changes, go here.
And now onto the meat of my post. There’s some discussion about the following:
- Grace doesn’t reduce damage dealt to the target anymore but now increases the healing received from the Priest by 3% (Up from 2%)
- Renewed Hope now also give you a 100% chance to reduce all damage taken by 3% for 20 sec to all friendly party and raid targets when you Power Word: Shield a friendly target.
I’m intrigued because of a paladin’s Improved Devotion Aura, which “increases the armor bonus of your Devotion Aura by 50% and increases the amount healed on any target affected by your Devotion Aura by 6%“. Now consider that with one of the paladin changes: “Improved Devotion Aura (Tier 4) now increases the amount healed on any target affected by any of your Auras by 2%. (Previously only worked with Devotion Aura active)”. Now it looks like they’ve reduced the amount healed, which makes me wonder: will they let these two abilities stack? Hmm. Would be nice for the disc priest if they did.
I’m not on the PTR, though, so there’s no way I can try to figure this out. Bleh.
