Discipline Gets Buffed

Posted in Healer, News, Priest on November 12, 2010 by PetitMew

Disc priests out there must be jumping for joy after hearing the updates being placed in the beta.

  • Power Word: Barrier duration reduced to 10 sec, down from 25 sec. No longer absorbs a given amount of damage, now reduces all damage done to friendly targets by 30%. While within the barrier, spellcasting will not be interrupted by damage.
  • Divine Aegis now also procs from all heals from Prayer of Healing.
  • Grace now increases all healing received from the Priest by 4/8%, up from 2/4%.

What does this mean? Blizzard are trying to make it so Discipline priests can be single and multiple target healers. Power Word: Barrier make last for only 10 seconds compared to now, however it no longer absorbs a given amount of damage so it won’t just disappear when that amount of damage has been dealt to the Barrier. You will find the glyph for Barrier much more useful now so you better have learnt it! Divine Aegis now procs on Prayer of Healing, making this heal a must cast spell for Disc priests.  Fantastic! As for Grace… come on what can I saw apart fomr WOOHOO!

Seriously these small updates on Discipline really have got me hyped for the expansion. I really hope these don’t get removed or changed back to their old ways. Fingers crossed, just incase!

In other news MMO-Champion posted nice pictures of the Tier 11 gear including Death Knight and Priest Normal AND Heroic. I actually like the Priest set and don’t care much for the helm, but that’s what Hide Helm is for. 😉
