Please don't post unconfirmed stuff like this. I've had all number of tripe thrown at me in the last 3 days "Well I read that..." then I ask for links and it turns out to be garbage. There is enough jubillant celebration and emotional crying that goes on over this stuff, don't feed it if you want to be a reputable source of information. At this stage I have to consider WowInsider questionable as an information source for info on the PTR.As for the much maligned CoH--if you haven't raided very far into the TBC content you haven't gotten a chance to see what this spell can do.Some months ago, a Death & Taxes priest came out onto the priest forums to state that it's important to remember that at the upper levels of gearing and content in the game there are aspects of each class and their talents that become very overpowered--and that you simply can't see this in the lower levels. Often the much clamored for change requested by those poorly specced and crying in greens makes no sense as a result, and will be ignored.This person was promptly flamed, which explains why people like this rarely post on the WoW forums. Here was a priest from one of the first guilds in the world to clear the TBC content, with experience to back up they were saying, and an audience unwilling and distinterested in doing anything more than going on the attack.Fast forward a couple of months and you have many more guilds who have cleared TBC content, and a sizeable number on their heels, about to clear SSC & TK and moving into BT/MH. It turns out, yes indeed CoH is OP, yes indeed it is amazing.Before you trash CoH keep that in mind. Before you complain that an ability should be awesome before you have part T5 or the best crafted gear, keep in mind that adjusting an ability to suit the tastes of the worst geared among us does nothing to keep balance in check.

Hello again :)This is a confirmed real spell, with links given in the article. The questionable part was whether it's a player spell, an NPC spell, or what, which I again stated was completely open in the article. It turns out it's a real NPC spell from the Sunwell raid. There's nothing unconfirmed, I just didn't know what sort of spell it was when I wrote the article, and said so. As far as CoH goes, I'd argue that if a talent is near-useless to 80% or more of raiding holy priests, it's pretty much a failure. But that's just me. And again, I said that CoH is not nearly so useless now as it used to be.
