Didn't want this to get buried in one of the existing threads:

From Ghostcrawler's Twitter feed:

It may not be live if you haven't seen it. I don't want to get in the habit of announcing hotfixes on Twitter. +25% PoH and PoM.


Updated with full 10/12 hotfix list:

Priest
- Prayer of Healing and Prayer of Mending now provide 25% more healing when cast by Holy and Discipline Priests.
- Archangel now affects Spirit Shell properly.
- Void Shift can now only work on other players.
- Cascade now deals 25% more damage or healing.

That looks more like a horribly thought out bandaid...

Main issue is regen..regen!

And disc has MANY issues.

But...at least we're being looked at.

Actually Zamboozle, I think its a good start. Its possible we will still need regen buffs, but not only does more throughput mean less mana needed, There is good synergy between PoH and PoM if you use Divine Insight, letting us cast more of a buffed fairly efficient spell.

I'll wait to see the math, but my guess is that Divine Insight will be the best 5th tier talent.

Edit: I think its a good start for Holy. Disc still need lots of work.

For some reason it's not showing the newer tweets for me, but it was there earlier along with some other recent posts. Twitter might be lagging or something.

Does not stop Holy getting trained to death instantly in PvP but hey a buff is a buff, wont fix Disc though.

This buff = buy some time until they can figure out what to do.

Well anyways, this will definitely boost Holy and Disc healing output but it doesn't solve their mana issues or as Gibal said, healer pvp issues.

Does anyone else feel that this is hitting things with a giant mallet?

It is a start. I agree. It shows they are indeed trying to 'fix' things.

But this really won't be fixed with just two buffs to two spells. I think a fix would be more along the lines of buff overall healing output, or tweaking actual spells themselves (e.g. lower CD and mana on Cascade/Halo, tweaks to POH and POM, Saucntuary...). And this still does not fix the mana issues Holy/Disc has.

Regen is honestly an issue for every healer. Seriously wondering about HM's.


It is an issue, but as other threads suggested, priest is at the bottom in that aspect.
