Spell Changes

  • Modified Symbol of Hope Jump to this spell in the compendium

    • Increased mana regeneration to 18% of their missing mana, over 5 seconds (was 12%).
    • Added bolstering the morale of party or raid members within 40 yards. They each recover 60 seconds of cooldown on a major defensive ability.
  • [Ret Paladin] Fixed an issue that was preventing Retribution Aura from activating when a Holy Priest’s Spirit of Redemption occurred. Retribution Aura will correctly activate when a Holy Priest enters Spirit of Redemption, if the Priest is not wearing X'anshi, Return of Archbishop Benedictus.

Talent Changes

No notable changes.

Shadowlands Systems

  • Modified Fae Guardians to have a range of 40 yards, down from none.
  • Modified Clear Mind reducing the mana saving by around 25%.
  • Added 4 new Legendary Powers, one specific to each covenant.

Notable hotfixes

  • July 06, 2021: Anger Management (Talent) and The Wall (Runecarving Effect) give the correct amount of cooldown reduction to Shield Wall while under the effect of a Priest’s Symbol of Hope.
  • July 12, 2021: Fixed an issue that caused players affected by a priest’s Leap of Faith to be hit by floor spikes (Sanctum of Domination, Painsmith).
  • July 13, 2021: Fixed an issue where Spirit of Redemption was not properly resolving after Forgeborne Reveries (Bonesmith Heirmir Soulbind).
  • July 14, 2021: Fixed an issue where Spirit of Redemption was not properly resolving after Podtender (Dreamweaver Soulbind).
  • July 20, 2021: When Mass Dispel dispels multiple targets, the order of dispels is now random.
    • Note: This does not have any meaningful impact on the usage of Mass Dispel and was introduced primarily to nerf a specific strategy in Sanctum of Domination caused by addons using internal character IDs to figure out Mass Dispel targets
  • `July 22, 2021: Fixed an issue where Bwonsamdi's Pact (Runecarving Power) disappeared prematurely if Fae Guardians (Night Fae Ability) lasted longer than 20 seconds.
  • August 2, 2021: Fixed an issue that caused the Courageous Ascension conduit to grant a low amount of damage while it was at 252 item level.
