Last night's Wrath
beta patch wasn't a very large one, but it did bring a few changes for just about everyone. Priests had some of the more boring changes, but let's take a look regardless.
- Holy Nova's mana cost is now 25% of base mana, originally 33% of base mana.
Decent enough change. Holy Nova's mana cost has always been a bit absurd considering how small the numbers it puts out are.
This is another good change, meant to make Imp Inner Fire more accesible to Shadow Priests. Originally, Improved Inner Fire was pitched to swap with Improved Power Word: Shield
, but that would cause talent allocation issues for PvP Shadow Priests while fixing it for PvE Shadow Priests. Losing Improved Fortitude in PvE is pretty lame, but probably the better swap in the end.
