Priest Shadowlands Class Changes for August 26th

Recommended Posts

Update: There are additional changes added, this time for Shadow Priests so we have a full set of spec changes this week!

Additionally, this week we want to highlight a change we’ve done to the Shadow Priest mastery.

In this change we’ve redesigned the mastery to be something more inline with the new changes, encouraging the Priest to stack their damage over time effects on targets for maximum effect. For each of your damage over time effects on the target, your damage is increased.

A twist: while in Void Form you gain full benefit of this mastery by dealing full damage on all targets, assuming they have all of your DoTs, whether they’re present on the target or not. We’ve decided to call this new mastery “Shadow Weaving,” invoking the name and spirit of an a legacy Shadow Priest talent.

  • Your damage is increased by x% for each of Shadow Word: Pain, Vampiric Touch and Devouring Plague on the target. During Void Form, all targets receive the maximum effect.

Let us know what you think!

    Here come the Priests with some healing changes, including both Holy and Disc! Some talent spots have been shuffled and Apotheosis got changes and more.

    A few things for healing Priests this update:

    Holy:
    Apotheosis Apotheosis now resets the cooldowns of Holy Words Holy Words when activated

    Disc:
    Lenience Lenience (talent) returned to the level 50 row
    Spirit Shell Spirit Shell now appears on the level 50 row, in place of Luminous Barrier Luminous Barrier, as an active talent that replaces Rapture Rapture. An old favorite, adapted to the current Discipline spec to work with Atonement Atonement, and providing an alternate method of preparing an absorb shield on your group.
    Rapture Rapture now instantly casts a Power Word: Shield Power Word: Shield on the target when activated. Casting with a target is optional; it will put the shield on you if there isn’t one.

        Are you wondering how your spec performs in Mythic+? Here's a tier list with all specializations!
        DISCLAIMER
        In this article, we are taking a look at the tier list for Mythic+ based on the data gathered by Benched.me. The site plots all runs available from the Blizzard API (excluding the Chinese region) on a single ridge plot, so it is different from our Shadowlands Mythic+ Rankings maintained by Petko.
        How the Data is Calculated
        To rank all specializations, Benched.me uses something called Meta Ratio Score. The "ratio" is between the specialization's representation in the meta vs. its representation in the population. For example, a specialization makes up 3% of all players in the population, but 6% in the meta, which means that spec's ratio is 6% / 3% = 2.
        Furthermore, the site defines the "population" as all keys level 2 through 15 and the "meta" as keys 16 and above. Based on that, we break down specs into tiers based on their meta ratio as follows:
        S-Tier: Ratio of at least 1.5. A-Tier: Ratio between 1 and 1.5. B-Tier: Ratio between 0.5 and 1. C-Tier: Ratio below 0.5, but greater than 0. F-Tier: Ratio of 0 (the spec isn't present in the high-level bin at all). Spec Tier List for Mythic+
        S-Tier
        Fire Mage - 2.02 ratio Balance Druid - 1.75 ratio Outlaw Rogue - 1.74 ratio Vengeance Demon Hunter - 1.64 ratio A-Tier
        Holy Paladin - 1.37 ratio Restoration Shaman - 1.36 ratio Windwalker Monk - 1.33 ratio Marksmanship Hunter - 1.28 ratio Brewmaster Monk - 1.15 ratio Fury Warrior - 1.14 ratio Discipline Priest - 1.08 ratio Affliction Warlock - 1.08 ratio B-Tier
        Guardian Druid - 0.89 ratio Unholy Death Knight - 0.75 ratio Shadow Priest - 0.73 ratio Havoc Demon Hunter - 0.72 ratio Restoration Druid - 0.71 ratio Blood Death Knight - 0.61 ratio Protection Paladin - 0.53 ratio Holy Priest - 0.5 ratio Elemental Shaman - 0.5 ratio C-Tier
        Enhancement Shaman - 0.47 ratio Protection Warrior - 0.41 ratio Mistweaver Monk - 0.41 ratio Feral Druid - 0.41 ratio Survival Hunter - 0.39 ratio Destruction Warlock - 0.39 ratio Frost Mage - 0.37 ratio Retribution Paladin - 0.35 ratio Assassination Rogue - 0.35 ratio Frost Death Knight - 0.31 ratio Subtlety Rogue - 0.31 ratio Arcane Mage - 0.31 ratio Arms Warrior - 0.30 ratio Demonology Warlock - 0.28 ratio Beast Mastery Hunter - 0.19 ratio

        We finally have 100 Alliance guilds that have taken down Sire Denathrius and cleared Castle Nathria on Mythic difficulty, which means cross-realm Mythic is on its way!
        The final kill occurred around 5:30 CET today, and since the cross-realm feature arrives on the next reset after the 100th kill it might be available to EU players today (this is the very same timing as the Ny'alotha 100th Alliance kill and it was available the same day in EU then, but there were some server issues around that time so we're not 100% sure), while US/OC players might have to wait until their next Tuesday reset. The Hall of Fame: Sire Denathrius (Alliance) achievement and Famed Slayer of Denatrius titles should still be available until the next reset (again, most likely only of US/OC players, given the timing).
        Proud Manlets was the final guild to claim one of the Hall of Fame spots on the Alliance side, and it's taken 29 days for the blue team to catch up to the red.


        You can check out the full Hall of Fame here.
        Thanks to NageK for spotting the final kill!

        Here's another Mythic+ non-meta victory, with a controller using tank finishing up the achievement in the worst Covenant for the spec in M+, in PUGs!
        We look at the log rankings, tier lists and various other optimizations and standings a lot here, so it's also important to point out that you really can get most non-highest end content done with any spec you want. Berub proved this and then some, as they got KSM while tanking as a Blood Death Knight Night Fae, the worst Covenant for M+ for the spec AND used a controller while doing it! And the best part? The reason Berub chose Night Fae is because of the armor looks!

        And while many others have completed KSM with off-meta specs, and some did with a controller as well, the tank + worst Covenant + controller part is especially impressive, and Berub didn't quite mention the control method to the groups, or those runs probably never would have happened at all. Here are some comments from the journey:
        Hopefully examples like this encourage players to try new things and now be quite as limited by the meta, despite it being pretty hard to get into groups, especially for DPS.

        This week's world boss is Mortanis and you can find him in Maldraxxus.
        Mortanis
        One of the most studied necromancers of the House of Rituals, Mortanis has been working tirelessly on a means of transforming himself into a more powerful form. Now, he is only a few moments from succeeding.

        Mortanis drops Item Level 207 loot along with various Legendary Power recipes and Conduits. Do not forget to pick the Renown weekly quest for 1,000 Anima before killing Mortanis. We are listing the full loot table below. 

        Memory of Fujieda (Warrior Legendary Power) Memory of Keefer (Monk Legendary Power) Memory of a Guile Charm (Rogue Legendary Power) Band of the Risen Bonelord (Ring) Mortanis's Ribcage (Mail Chest) Bone Crushing Vicegrips (Mail Gloves) Bone-Cleated Footpads (Leather Feet) Spine Crawler Waistcord (Cloth Belt) Shoulderblade Vambraces (Plate Wrists)

        There seem to be some new issues with the EU authentication servers, as many players are unable to log in. So if you're having trouble playing at the moment, don't worry, it's not just you:

        Anyone having issues loggin in (EU)? fix the servers Blizzard have also responded on the matter, but it seems to still be ongoing:
        So we'll just have to wait a bit more, although the issue has been persisting for about an hour now.
