Honestly, while it does stink that GoTN can't be used in Shadowform (I was kind of hoping and looking forward to it myself,) it does make sense from both a game play and a lore point of view.First off, if Shadow Priests (AKA: Facemelters) had the ability to heal in Shadowform, then that would tilt the balance of just about every encounter even more so into their favor. They can already tear through most characters and character builds rather quickly from what I've seen, and giving them the ability to heal with out having to change out would just be over kill, or at least the ability to heal over time with out a chance at stopping it.Secondly, from the lore side, this ability is, as the name says, a gift from the Naaru. The Naaru, while apparently tolerant of Shadow using Priests and Shaman in general, are beings of light and holy energy. It would make sense for their blessings and other abilities to be holy based. Thus, when the Priest does go into his/her Shadowform, they have to give up the use of GoTN until they change back.Like I said, while it does stink that it can't be used in Shadowform, I do understand why it can't be.
