As a discipline priest, I have to say I'm disappointed to see the new down-ranking prevention. Already at a disadvantage against skilled rogues, now there is an even higher penalty for using an already crappy spell (holy nova) to flush them out at an already pathetic range (increase the effective range if we're forced to use max rank). Blizzard seriously never could have intended holy nova to be used for healing, because the heal per mana is pathetic. It's a multi-purpose ability at best (it's a talent as well, so we're already investing in it). No PvE priest in his right mind will ever use it, it's only currently useful in PvP for snake traps and un-stealthing.Also, I cast rank 1 fortitude/inner-fire/renews when a pesky mage starts yanking all of my essential buffs from me, to at least penalize his mana pool somewhat for spamming that godawful ability on a class that relies entirely on magic for protection. The extra 10% dispel protection being given to priests is not enough to cover what we're losing with down-ranking going the way of the buffalo.
