Especially Night Fae Holy Priests are popular in WoW's raids due to their pact ability. However, the players think that the healing and damage dealt in Mythic-Plus dungeons could be a bit better. The developers see it that way, too, and are giving the Holy some nice buffs and changing abilities and talents in Patch 9.2.

The healing and damage numbers of the Holy Priest are increased across the board and you even get the possibility to revive players in battle if you have chosen the right talent!

World of Warcraft | 10 features WoW desperately needs - Column by Philipp Sattler

All hots, DoTs, damage and healing spells have been properly adjusted in their strength. The only nerf in Patch 9.2 concerns your "Mana Hymn" Symbol of Hope, which now produces three percent less mana, but needs to be channeled one second shorter.

There are a few shifts in the talent tree: Cosmic Wave moves to the 40 row, swapping places with Connecting Healing. The latter talent has been reworked, and now restores 20 percent of the healing caused to you when you heal or flash heal a target.

To improve group healing via Prayer of Healing, Prayer Circle now reduces not only the casting time of Prayer of Healing, but also the mana cost by 25 percent.

Level 30 talent series: The agony of choice

In the 30 row, you can choose the improved Connecting Healing, improved Guardian Angel, or improved Beyond in patch 9.2. As seen above, Guardian Angel has been changed so that the healing bonus from Protective Spirit is no longer used up when the effect procs. Beyond was never previously chosen in the talent line, but now grants you the ability to cast Resurrection on a player in your Spirit of Redemption in combat. However, if you use this option, Spirit of Redemption is immediately canceled.
