Buffs
Power Word: Fortitude Icon Power Word: Fortitude Increases the Stamina of all party and raid members by 10% — does not stack with Qiraji Fortitude Icon Qiraji Fortitude, Dark Intent Icon Dark Intent, and Commanding Shout Icon Commanding Shout
Utility
Hymn of Hope Icon Hymn of Hope Raid-wide mana regenerating cooldown
Fear Ward Icon Fear Ward Grants you or a friendly target immunity against the first fear effect cast against them.
Purify Icon Purify Removes all Magic and Disease effects from a friendly target (8-second cooldown)
Dispel Magic Icon Dispel Magic Removes 1 beneficial Magic effect from an enemy.
Mass Dispel Icon Mass Dispel Removes one harmful magical effect from every friendly target and one beneficial magical effect from every enemy target in an area. If Glyph of Mass Dispel Icon Glyph of Mass Dispel is used, then it also removes effects that are not normally dispellable.
Crowd Control
Psychic Scream Icon Psychic Scream AoE fear
Shackle Undead Icon Shackle Undead Allows you to crowd control an Undead target.
Survival
Fade Icon Fade Temporarily reduces your threat against all targets (to 0), forcing the mobs to attack someone else on their threat table. This spell is especially useful when adds are spawning and you wish to avoid aggro.
Void Shift Icon Void Shift Instantly swaps health percentages between the Priest and the target raid member. It can be used to replace a player's low health percentage with a full health percentage, thus saving them.
Leap of Faith Icon Leap of Faith Pulls a raid member to your location. This ability is useful for moving unresponsive (or disconnected) players out of harm's way.
Levitate Icon Levitate Reduces speed while falling (hence preventing fall damage) and grants the ability to walk on water.
