Known issues

Critical

  • (Build 9.1.5.42010) - Halo has a target cap of 20 targets. It hits pets and guardians, so much of the 20-target cap is often taken up by useless overhealing on pets and guardians.
  • (Build 9.2.0.42354) - Shadow Word: Manipulation doesn't increase the "damage done heals the target instead" (healing) component by 10%.
  • (Build 9.1.5.42010) - When Guardian Spirit is present on an enemy that dies in a way that Guardian Spirit is not given an opportunity to save them (such as some raid mechanics, or players with Forgeborne Reveries), Guardian Angel is not triggered and the cooldown of Guardian Spirit is not set back to 60-seconds.
  • (Build 9.2.0.42277) - Podtender can proc then the pod can die (even in raid/mythic+) and you are in SoR but also still pod so unable to cast.

Important

Non-Priest Specific

  • (Build 9.2.0.42277) - Podtender debuff Depleted Shell doesn't clear when you wipe.

Minor

  • (Build 9.2.0.42354) - Prayer of Mending states it jumps "Up to 5 times" despite only jumping 4 times.
  • (Build 9.2.0.42277) - Divine Image will only cast Light Eruption when Holy Nova's initial hit damages more than 1 enemy target.
  • (Build 9.2.0.42354) - Power Word: Shield does not scale with the Holy Priest aura Holy Priest Spec Aura.
  • (Build 9.2.0.42354) - Symbol of Hope scales with haste and always returns more than 60 seconds of CDR (typically 65-70 seconds of CDR with normal haste levels) to all abilities. (Thanks @Cairngorm)
