wow Priest - Warlords of Draenor Alpha Patch Notes Analysis

2 posts in this topic


Icy Veins asks the experts' opinions on their favorite class changes! Today, Jhazrun and Twintop discuss Priest patch notes.

The Warlords of Draenor Alpha patch notes have been out for only a few days, but millions of players are already voicing strong opinions of the direction Blizzard is headed with the game in this coming expansion. Some class changes have received overwhelmingly positive feedback, while others have left many a player scratching their head. A few changes have even caused a substantial outcry of rage!

To see things more clearly, we've invited a handful of our class MVPs to share their opinions on the changes made to their respective class. For this patch notes analysis topic, we have requested feedback from our resident expert on the projected changes being made to the Priest class. Jhazrun and Twintop have been kind enough to share their thoughts on the upcoming Priest changes!

Jhazrun is one of the best healer Priests in the world and he raids in Paragon. Twintop is one of the most renowned Shadow Priest theorycrafters. He runs Shadow Orbs and Mind Spikes (a Shadow Priest theorycrafting blog) and works on How To Priest.

Raid Utility Balance

  • Hymn of Hope has been removed.

Class Changes

We've made a few significant changes to Priests as well, focused mostly on reining in Discipline absorbs, improving quality of life for both healing Priest specializations, and solving single-target damage issues for Shadow.

Atonement was the original damage-to-healing conversion ability, but grew out of control during Mists of Pandaria. We decided to reduce its effectiveness, to bring it more in line with our goal of it being an option to trade significant healing for significant damage (ending up somewhere between a full healer and a full damage dealer). Another place where Discipline's absorbs were too strong was in their interaction with the level-90 Talents, especially in large Raids. Near the end of Mists of Pandaria, we uncapped the AoE healing of that Talent row; that has proven to be a mistake in Discipline's case, not because it caused the level-90 Talents themselves to heal for too much, but rather because the gigantic overhealing that that produced translated into gigantic Divine Aegis absorbs. To get back to a balanced place, we've reapplied the AoE caps to the level-90 Talents, making them consistent with all other AoE heals.
  • Atonement now heals for 25% less than before.
  • Halo and Divine Star now follow standard AoE capping rules.
For Holy Priests, our biggest concern is with the Chakras. We think that Chakras are the defining abilities of Holy Priests, but that they haven't lived up to their potential. We decided to move more of their effectiveness from their raw throughput buff (which felt like a penalty for being in the wrong chakra, rather than a bonus for being in the right Chakra) into the Holy Word spells that they grant. We also returned Renew to a normal 1.5-second global cooldown (GCD), so that Renew blanketing is still possible, but less ideal without Haste.
  • Chakra: Serenity now increases healing of single-target spells by 10% (down from 25%).
  • Holy Word: Serenity now heals for 40% more than before.
  • Chakra: Sanctuary now increases healing of area-of-effect spells by 10% (down from 25%).
  • Holy Word: Sanctuary now heals for 60% more than before.
  • Rapid Renewal no longer reduces the global cooldown of Renew.
Shadow Priests had one large problem toward the end of Mists of Pandaria: single-target damage. Their AoE and multi-DoT damage was some of the best around, so they still ended up competitive on most fights. But, in any fight that was mostly single-target, they felt lacking. Additionally, one of the new stats we're adding in Warlords of Draenor, Multistrike, is almost exactly what their current Mastery, Shadowy Recall, does for DoTs. So, we took these two problems and came up with a change that we think will solve both of them. The result is a new Mastery, which primarily increases single-target damage. Shadow Priests who want to focus on single-target damage can aim for Mastery in their gearing; or, when multi-dotting is more valuable, prefer other secondary stats over Mastery.
  • Shadow Priest’s Mastery (Shadowy Recall) has been replaced with a new Mastery: Mental Anguish.
    • Mastery: Mental Anguish: Increases the damage of Mind Blast, Mind Spike, Mind Flay, and Mind Sear by 20%.
There are a few other miscellaneous changes. One is a quality-of-life change for healing Priests. The other is a fix for a problem with Void Tendrils, where it lasts its full duration against creatures that had no way to attack it (such as in certain Raid encounters). Note that the health reduction is to keep it where it was in health, compared to player health doubling. The third is an efficient AoE healing spell for Discipline Priests. And finally, we swapped the Level-15 and Level-60 talent rows so players are presented with core Priest themed abilities earlier in the leveling process.
  • Prayer of Mending from multiple Priests can now be on the same target, and can be on multiple targets from the same Priest.
  • Void Tendrils now have 10% of the Priest’s health (down from 20%), and damage dealt to the rooted target is now also dealt to the Void Tendril itself.
  • Angelic Feathers, if cast on players, will always prefer the casting priest over others, then pick the player closest to the targeted location. If there are no players where it is targeted, it will still create a feather that can be picked up, as before. Additionally, when collecting multiple feathers, the duration will be extended, instead of replaced.
  • Holy Nova is no longer available via a Major Glyph, and is instead a Discipline specialization spell. Its mana cost has been lowered and its healing increased. It is intended as the efficient area-of-effect (AoE) healing spell for Discipline Priests.
  • Inner Focus: No longer provides immunity to Dispels, Interrupts, and Silences. This effect will be returning as a Major Glyph.
  • Cascade, Divine Star, and Halo have received additional changes based on specialization.
    • Discipline and Holy: The abilities now heal for 50% less, costs 67% less mana, and no longer damages enemies.
    • Shadow: The abilities now costs 67% less mana, but no longer heals allies.
  • Purify, Halo, Cascade, and Divine Star can now be cast while in Spirit of Redemption form.
  • Shadowfiend no longer restores mana.
    • Mindbender now restores 0.75% mana per hit (down from 1.75% mana).
  • Level-15 and Level-60 talent rows have swapped places.

1. What is your overall impression of Blizzard's changes to the Priest class?

Jhazrun (Holy / Discipline): The most striking observation is that in the present build, Discipline doesn't exist. All of its current abilities and advantages have been systematically disassembled both directly and indirectly, presumably to be rebuilt from scratch. Anything and everything the spec will be in WoD has yet to be seen, so further commentary on it is limited for now.

On the Holy side of things, the half-measures taken with Chakra paint a concerning continuation of the spec's notorious "Lightwell syndrome": a fixation with a fundamentally unworkable mechanic that no one likes yet which seems to stick around largely unchanged from patch to patch and expansion to expansion.

Overall impression? A strange mix of upheaval and stagnation, and neither feels right.

Twintop (Shadow): Blizzard has, as expected, removed much of the excess healing capability from Shadow. The abilities removed, however, are not of as much importance (Renew, Binding Heal) as the removal of healing from the Level 90 talents. In a world where offhealing is greatly reduced (and being below 100% health doesn't pose the risk of instant death), Shadow will still able to function with Prayer of Mending, Flash Heal, and Power Word: Shield.

The perks and changes to existing talents to synergize the new Level 100 talents with them are varied in both playstyle and mechanics. Coupled with the new Mastery--single target damage bonuses--Shadow should be viable and competitive in more if not most or all encounters.

2. Which changes do you think are the best and why?

Jhazrun (Holy / Discipline): I get to bind something else in where Hymn of Hope used to be.

Twintop (Shadow): The change to Shadow's Mastery from affecting DoTs to a pure single target damage increase (as well as AoE though Mind Sear) is a logical, albeit unimaginative, fix. The most difficult part about tuning Shadow's damage in MoP revolved around DoT damage and it scaling too high. With that now being a mechanic available to everyone, via multistrike, Shadow can be balanced around a base amount of single target damage and other talents (specifically the Level 100 talents) can be tuned or altered to help fill niche gaps, such as multidotting.

3. Which changes do you think are the worst and why?

Jhazrun (Holy / Discipline): Leaving enough of the Chakra healing "bonus" for the player to feel bad about using the wrong type—yet not enough to meaningfully affect gameplay and reward skilled use—amounts to nothing but the worst of both worlds for everyone.

Moreover, killing Void Tendrils (the one way priests, as the only healers with neither a stun nor interrupt, have ever been able to contribute to mob control) just gets under my skin as disproportionately insulting.

Twintop (Shadow): Though I'm sure this will be addressed, Void Shift being removed and no new Level 87 ability being added as a replacement. Even this isn't a 'bad' change, though, since Void Shift's usability was extremely limited.

Second would be Psychic Scream being made a talent, replacing Psyfiend. Maybe it can be altered via a glyph in the future, but, there are times where Psyfiend was superior to Psychic Scream due to being able to place it at a distance. Perhaps this is too strong for PvP, but a choice between the two (if neither is baseline) would be nice.

4. How would you alter any of the existing changes?

Jhazrun (Holy / Discipline): Make up your mind with Chakra. Either we're expected to cross-cast single-target and AoE spells (in which case the healing adjustment is to be nothing but 0%. Zero. Nada. Zilch.) or we're expected NOT to (making it into actual stances with a defined spell selections).

Twintop (Shadow): I would make Glyph of Silence baseline (as it stands, 2sec lower duration and all). Having the option to have a 20sec interrupt will bring us on par with every other class, but at the cost of a glyph slot makes it feel forced. An alternative Glyph of Silence could be "Increases the duration of you Silence by 2 sec. but increases its cooldown by 5sec.".

5. What changes would you like to see in WoD?

Jhazrun (Holy / Discipline): Holy priest is still the only healer without any kind of additional critical chance benefit. If the secondary stats are to be anywhere near equal (as is stated to be the goal), now would be a good time to introduce one.

Twintop (Shadow): I would make Shadowform baseline and not able to be toggled on/off. As it stand, only 2 abilities in WoD will cause you to drop Shadowform: Flash Heal and Resurrection. With healing extremely neutered as is, does the cost of an extra GCD to return to Shadowform after casting Flash Heal make sense?

Very interesting to get Jhazrun's PoV on this and for the most part I agree.


Holy is in a terrible position right now and has been for a long time. Chakras are something in-between full-blown stances and gimmick boni to selected spells. That has always been a problem, especially given the 30 seconds lock-out period where your AoE or single-target healing would suffer from being in the wrong chakra. They are trying to amend this now by baking most of the healing increase into the actual spells, regardless of chakras, and reducing the cooldown on them. While this serves to lessen the problem it doesn't change the fundamental nature of chakras, they are just made less important, yet as broken as before.


I'd rather have them gone than changed into actual stances. No other class up to this point, though things are changing for monks, have had to select between AoE and single-target healing the way holy priests do. Not to mention how often we would have to change stances to deal with different situations, esp. with the changes to Chakra: Chastise to be our mana regen chakra.


I can't see how holy priests are the only ones suffering from no real benefit from critical strikes. While monks, shamans and disc priests both priotise this stat above others the former two as a mana regen tool and disc as its primary throughput stat , neither druids nor paladins gain anything substantial from critical strikes. Living seed is not a significant portion of their healing and similarly the comparative value of mastery or haste compared to crit make the stat very unattractive for these two specs as well. In fact crit is, after mastery, likely going to be one of the best resources of throughput for holy priests as it does interact with out mastery(crits double the healing EoL heals for) and haste, atm, only affects our HPCT.


While I'm all in favor of making holy have more interesting mechanics(something they lack), adding a trivial mechanic that interacts with crit isn't going to change much. They do have to do something though, as Jhazrun points out, to make the stats have better parity.


I don't think discipline is as broken as it's made out to be. Atonement and our L90 talents had to be reigned in. Both were too powerful. One of the biggest issues with atonement was the way one of our most potent heals, penance, interacted with it, which is now gone since Penance has been changed into a single-target heal or a mana regen tool(when used offensively) and atonement now only interacts with HF and Smite mitigating most of the issues with atonement. The AoE cap on Halo and DS brings them in line with similar AoE heals which was a needed change.


Even with those changes, the most fundamental change is that we now have to move around to efficiently aoe heal now that our most efficient aoe heal will be through Holy Nova. I don't know how this plays out, but Ive never been a fan of positioning conditions on spells.


Our ability to pre-shield the raid or people that will take damage hasn't been removed, we still have PWS and SS. One of our L100 talents will even greatly help us with this giving us a potent, mana-efficient single-target absorb. DA will likely take hit with our crit values going down and both atonement and L90 talents being normalized, but in my opinion that's a good thing. DA was never reliable and even if you could use them to put minor shields on most in the raid, there were never any assurance that the people that needed it the most would be covered. The only reason it worked was our high level of crit. Resorting to more reliable means will probably result in a more enjoyable experience.

      Diablo's 20th Anniversary is coming to World of Warcraft and a lot of Diablo-inspired items have been added. The event is supposed to be held somewhere in December.
      The achievement we'll be able to obtain is a Feat of Strength. Given that Diablo I was released on December 31, we can expect the event soon. Items associated with it are also Diablo items.
      I assume Stone of Jordan may be the currency for this event, used to purchase the bag and guitar.
      Hearthstone Variations
      Tome of Town Portal Blank Diabolic Tome Scroll of Town Portal Bags
      Horadric Satchel Diablo II Charms
      Two items that do not require to be equipped but grant stats have been added.
      Serpent's Grand Charm // Serpent's Grand Charm Stalwart's Grand Charm // Stalwart's Grand Charm Misc
      Twelve-String Guitar I've added a video below and there's Diablo music added to WoW. Probably it will play when you strum the strings.

      You may have heard the term sniper when it comes down to gold making. Let's look at this powerful TSM feature in more detail.
      Sniper is TradeSkillMaster's powerful function which allows real-time AH scanning. While performing the scan, it constantly fetches the last page of the Auction House for auctions that have been posted way below what they should sell for. Items that have been posted cheap by accident also show up on your scan list for a quick buyout. All you need is a proper setup.
      How Much Gold Can I Make on Average?
      It's hard to tell as you would need to have Auction House opened all the time and the more you scan the more gold you can earn. What I'd suggest is to have a separate WoW account just for Sniping. This way, you can constantly scan and also enjoy the game on your main account at the same time.
      Here are some of my latest snipes listed by their average resale profit. See Obliterum in that list? That was an accident.

      Where Do I Get TSM?
      Download it via the official website of TradeSkillMaster. It's good to install complement addons, such as TSM Destroy, Vendoring or the entire suite. The TSM desktop app available for both Windows/Mac is also a must, so you don't have to constantly rescan the Auction House. Setup
      Run the TSM app before launching the game. Addons obviously need to be placed in the */Addons folder as usual and enabled in-game. The Formula
      First we need to define Custom Prices and minprice. Type /TSM and on the firs tab, navigate to Custom Price Sources and insert the following code, hit okay.
      max(min(DBHistorical, DBGlobalMarketAvg, DBGlobalHistorical, DBRegionMarketAvg, DBRegionHistorical), VendorSell)
      Now we need to define our sniper formula. It is used to filter out all the items to tell us which is the best to buy and resell. You can configure it under Options/Core Features and from the "Module Options" dropdown, go to Shopping > Sniper Options. We'll be inserting our custom formula in the field just under the "Test Selected Sound" button.
      I have been using the fomula of BilisOnyxia for some time now and this is the code you need to insert there.
      check(minprice - 100000g, 90% minprice, check(minprice - 50000g, 80% minprice, check(minprice - 10000g, 60% minprice, check(minprice - 5000g, 50% minprice, check(minprice - 1000g, 30% minprice, check(minprice - 500g, 20% minprice, check(minprice - 50g, 10% minprice))))))) What Does It Mean?
      The check() function works like an if/else conditional statement. The function can take 2-3 parameters. Each parameter is seperated by a comma. What the check() function does is, it checks if the first parameter is greater than zero. If it is, it will use the second parameter. If it is not greater than zero (equal to or smaller than zero) it will use the third parameter (If there is no third parameter the whole function will result in an invalid price).
      So, check(DBMarket - 100g, 50% DBMarket, 30% DBMarket) would first check whether the result of "DBMarket - 100g" is greater than zero. If it is, it will use 50% DBMarket, if it is not it will use 30% DBMarket. What this means is, if an item has a DBMarket value of more than 100g, 50% DBMarket will be used, if it has a DBMarket value of 100g or less, 30% DBMarket will be used.
      Knowing how the check() function works, you might already see where the formula is going.
      Here is a little easier to read breakdown of the formula:
      If an item's value is greater than 100k gold, use 90%. If an item's value is greater than 50k gold, use 80%. If an item's value is greater than 10k gold, use 60%. If an item's value is greater than 5k gold, use 50%. If an item's value is greater than 1k gold, use 30%. If an item's value is greater than 500g gold, use 20%. If an item's value is greater than 50g, use 10%. If an item's value is 50g or less, exclude it no matter how cheap it gets listed. We're all set now, navigate to the last tab of the Auction House UI > Custom Filter / Other Sources and click "Start Sniper". This will start the scan, you can set up the sound you want to hear when an item appears in the list for quick buyout.

      Sniper Results Awareness
      Sniping is supposed to be semi-automated. It still requires common sense as some results may be false positives, like duped Saber's gems, which are often underpriced.

      The boss has been found and killed! See how to do it yourself as well as a mount pic and boss fight video.
      Update 2: ZosynPriest has discovered Nightbane is a timed event, similar to Zul'Aman. Once you enter the instance, you'll have a fixed timer, indicated by the "The strange chill of a dark presence winds through the air" emote and from that moment you have exactly eight minutes to finish the Opera event and click Soul Fragment.
      Failing the Event gives you the following emote: "The air grows slightly warmer".
      After collecting the first fragment, you will get a buff Medivh's Echo, which is now your new timer.

      You can gain +5 minutes for every fragment you collect.
      1 is in Opera audience 1 before the Maiden of Virtue 1 after killing Moroes 1 in the Spider Room 1 after Curator When you manage to complete it in time, your buff will change to Medivh's Presence. Go to Nightbane's room and talk to Medivh. It awards the One Night in Karazhan and he will summon Nightbane for you. After wipes Nightbane won't despawn.
      Update: It seems some players have already summoned Nightbane. Observing the player's armory he doesn't have the last boss achievement. Maybe he finished the quest line already by switching lockouts.
      My theory was that Nightbane became available during the final part of the quest. Why? Look at the list of the following items. All are a requirement for the above quests and guess what? The items are always +1 by ID and go from first to last (all are quest items related to Karazhan ring quest line).
      Empty Box of Motivator Crystals Box of 'New' Horseshoes Bouquet of Roses Positive Review Negative Review Negative Review Little Red's Cape  Charred Bone Fragments (party loot) start the following quest that isn't in-game yet. We'll probably assemble Nightbane from the bone fragments -> Nightbane Transform.   
      Remember the Violet Seal of the Archmage? New versions of the old Karazhan ring have been added. They can be obtained through a series of quests that might lead to Nightbane
      There are four versions of the ring ranging from item level 850 up to 875.
      Violet Seal of the Archmage Fragments of the Past need to be completed to get the initial version of the ring. Violet Seal of the Archmage Complete Book Wyrms followed by Rebooting the Cleaner to get the first ring upgrade. Violet Seal of the Archmage Now for the third upgrade there are no quests in any databases. I fiddled around with in-game linking and found two more quests, which will likely upgrade the ring to its 860 version.
      The horseshoes can be a drop from Attumen or Midnight.

      Violet Seal of the Grand Magus The last ring has the same item level as Nightbane loot and offers a teleport to Karazhan on a 4-hour cooldown. I assume it's the final reward after defeating Nightbane.

      Cleared Heroic and Normal Emerald Nightmare in the first week of it's release.
      Classes Needed:
      Balance Druid
      Shadow Priest
      Always looking for exceptional DPS of any class.

      About Us: 
      We are a guild, made up of former members of <Red Shift> and <Casually Addicted>, on Bleeding Hollow (PvP Server on a Chicago Datacenter) that have a common goal and will do what is necessary to achieve it. We are Shifty Casuals.
      We are a group of professional adults, who believe success in raiding doesn't correlate to number in days/hours you spend raiding. We are starting a fresh page within our guild history and sticking to a 3 day a week raid schedule.
      We don't tolerate elitism, bigotry, misogyny or any of the like. We enjoy our calm, adult environment and have no qualms with protecting it.
      We do loot council which is fair and distributes loot for the progression of the raid as a whole and not an individual player. No favoritism, no loot drama.
      We have our sights set on top 100 US for Legion and are looking for like-minded individuals to join our ranks.

      Raid Days and Times (All times in EST as that is our server time):
      · Tuesday 8:45pm-11:45pm
      · Wednesday 8:45pm-11:45pm
      · Thursday 8:45pm-11:45pm

      Who We Want:
      Since we are reforming and building for the expansion now is a great time to get in on the ground floor and clear content with us, while prepping for the new expansion. These are some key traits that we are looking for:
      · Someone who understands that 3 nights a week raiding means that you need to bring your A-game each and every night. Attendance is expected to be near 100%. By committing to raid, you are committing yourself to our raiding schedule.
      · The ability to perform under pressure. We only recruit impressive players, and spots are always competitive.
      · Extensive class knowledge of your class. (IE: Alpha/beta testing, keeping up with theorycrafting, properly gemmed/enchanted, always be up to date on the intricacies of your class (not solely your spec(s)) and on the utility of the entire raid group.)
      · A computer that can handle 20-30 man raiding and the ability to communicate via VOIP when needed. You must have a working headset and mic, and you must be prepared to use them. We will not read chat during boss fights. Inability to give a vocal response will not be tolerated as it directly hinders progression.
      · Tough skin. We're always looking to improve ourselves as should you. Constructive criticism is encouraged, but flaming and insulting is not tolerated whatsoever.

      If you have what it takes to be a part of this great team and community, feel free to apply at our website  If you have questions about the application process, contact any of the officers for additional information.
