Buffing Disc in PTR 5.2
12/21/2012 06:25 PMPosted by JelvisI don't know priests perfectly but if its a old buff why would mmo-champion say its a change to devine aegis for PTR 5.2 and not a tooltip fix?
typos happen even on official sites. it's 50% right now and has been for over a month.

Because MMO-Champion makes mistakes?
So yes, the 50% DA has been around for a while now.

While this is a step in the right direction, it literally does nothing much to tone down well-geared Priests as long as the previous buff to DA remains.
The best solution is probably to make rapture simply a free pw:s every 12 seconds - this nerfs ridiculous pve scaling without hurting pvp (and is even a buff to pvp mana regen under most circumstances).
Maybe reduce only the PoH DA (as opposed to all DA) to compensate for the fact that it automatically applies.
The nerf to Rapture is to be expected.
In addition, you should expect some nerfs to Spirit Shell's mastery scaling, although I haven't seen those show up yet.

If they wanted to nerf Spirit Shell they'd make it increase mana costs while active. It's already pretty easy to hit cap out Spirit Shell on a raid without going out of your way. But again, it's also pretty easy to OOM yourself when actually casting heals.
Power Word: Solace has been redesigned.
Power Word: Solace replaces Holy Fire. It deals the same damage and interacts with other spells and abilities in the same manner, but is instant, costs no mana, and restores 1% of maximum mana on each cast.
Dominate Mind now has a 1.8 second cast time (was 2.5 seconds).
Angelic Feather now has a 6 second duration (was 4 seconds).
Body and Soul now has a 3 second duration (was 4 seconds).
Glyph of Holy Fire has been redesigned. It now increases the range of Holy Fire, Smite, and Power Word: Solace by 10 yards.
Focused Will now reduces damage taken by 15% per stack, with a limit of 2 stacks.
Spirit Shell no longer benefits from Mastery, and now properly includes the benefits of Divine Aegis and critical effect chance.
Rapture now provides mana equal to 250% (was 200%) of the Priest's Spirit, but no longer benefits from Spirit provided by short duration bonuses.
Outside of the Focused Will buff, nothing else really appears to be a straight out buff. On the other hand, there's quite a few nerfs, especially for people who were abusing MTT.
