"Bonus: Lightweave Embroidery. This provides 580 intellect for 15 seconds."It provides 580 spell power.

Yup. And the mats for lightweave embroidery are way way cheaper this time around than they were in wrath.

It's not reflected in the tooltip, but it's intellect, not spell power. When fully buffed my priest has 99k mana right now, but I glanced at his bars and noticed his max mana was significantly higher at one point - it's the lightweave embroidery. It's intellect.And yes, the mats are much less irritating than in Wrath.

Its tooltip says 580 spellpower, but it is indeed 580 Intellect. When it procs, it gives my mage 609 Intellect, which is 580 Int + 5% from the Wizardry buff.

I'm not so sure getting intellect rather than spell power is a good thing for arcane mages. When lightweave procs we are getting a damage boost from the extra int, but we are also losing damage due to being at a lower mana percentage. I haven't done the math but it is possible that it would be more useful to receive spell power.

@Sacul - I've noticed that generally these things will bump up your current and total mana when the proc. Like, for instance, the old version of survival instincts (feral druids) which increased your health by some percentage. It wasn't like, I have 20/100 health, I use SI to get 120 health and still have 20 health, it was like, I use SI and have 40/120 health. The health was, (I'm pretty sure) lost at the end of the ability when your total health went back down, but it was there when you needed it. I haven't exactly tested it, but this might work the same, in which case the percentage should be the same... actually, thinking about it, if your mana jumps up by the same amount as your total, you'd actually have a higher percentage when you first get the proc (using my example, 40 health is 33.3% of 120, versus 20% of 100 health).

Um, wasn't WotLK mats for Lightweave a single Eternium Thread from the vendor? Or was that changed? Wowhead says 1 thread and I don't see any patch notes when it changed. I can't remember since once I embroidered in the beginning of WotLK I never looked at it again until Cataclysm and it's 1 thread until you learn the update which is now a thread + 3 Volatile Life.
