For you Holy Pallies out there like me, there are two pretty significant buffs that are not touched on in the post. "Divine Plea now lasts for 9 seconds, down from 15. It grants 4% mana per tick, instead of 2%, for a total of 12% mana, up from 10%."Old news for some folks, I think this has been in the last couple of PTR builds, but with respect to mana regen, this is welcome. 2% more mana per Divine Plea is nice, but the kicker here is reducing the time of the spell (and therefore the healing debuff) by a full 6 seconds. This allows is to use Divine Plea in more situations, where damage lulls are shorter, or reduces risk for those of us already using it on CD. It granting 4% per tick also means that we're getting more bang for our buck if we have to cancel the spell early for some reason. The second buff is related:"Glyph of Divine Plea now adds 6% mana, for a total of 18% over 9 seconds."Obviously this is just a 1% increase over the current glyph, so it's a minor buff, but I was concerned that Blizz would change the glyph to add mana, but revert back to a 15 second spell up-time (so taking the glyph would be a bit of a trade off). Instead they went with a straight buff. So glyphed Holy Pallies will now (Thrall willing) be returning 18% of total mana over 9 seconds, vs. currently returning 15% of total mana over 15 seconds. When we are talking about enormous mana pools, 3% is nice. But the key here is the reduction in spell time.Good change for those of us paranoid about regen.

yea but did you see that they increased the mana needed for holy light, divine light and flash of light by 10 percent. So that buff to divine plea doesnt seem so great to me any more.
