Shadow Word: Resources and new talents for Legion Shadow Priests It’s a day that ends in “y,” which means it’s time for more alpha changes to Shadow Priests! And since it’s been many “-y” days since we last talked about changes, we have a lot to cover. We’ve not only seen changes to a number of spells and talents for Legion Shadow Priests, but also the...

Spiritual Guidance: Holy and Discipline Priest updates in Legion alpha Discipline and Holy Priests have been available in the Legion alpha for a bit of time now, and the past month brought a spate of new alpha builds complete with tweaks large and small. Here we’ll dive into some of the more interesting changes to get a feel of how and where our favorite Priest specs...




Shadow Word: Shadow Priest class hall and Artifact tree updates Some things change and some things stay the same. The Legion alpha is not the latter. Since we last went over Shadow Priests in the alpha, we’ve received some visual love in our class hall to make the Shadow portion feels more like a place we can call home. A terrifying, Insanity-inducing home. Bigger news,...

Artifact Quest Preview: T’uure, Holy Priests’ weapon of Light Some of the most anticipated additions coming to World of Warcraft: Legion are the Artifact weapons. Each Artifact has its own specific lore that will evolve over the course of the expansion. That lore starts with the introductory quest chain and so far each Artifact’s quest chain is proving to be full of major reveals....

Spiritual Guidance: Holy Priests join the Legion alpha Quick on the heels of Discipline’s addition to the Legion alpha, Holy flaunted in, much to everyone’s delight. We’ve had quite a few changes since its initial talent tree and spell debuts, but it seems like everything is coming together nicely with the class fantasy. Core gameplay features our new Holy Words, giving Holy a...

Shadow Word: How does playing a Legion Shadow Priest feel? Thank the Old Gods, Shadowform is back! Not only is it back, but it brought with it a friend: the new and improved Voidform visual effect. The out-of-combat Shadowform looks like the glyphed version on live — but as you gain Insanity, your Shadowform gets darker and darker until finally growing tentacles and entering a...




Spiritual Guidance: Discipline Priests in Legion alpha Praise the Light, Discipline has come to the alpha! This makes Discipline the third healing spec to go live, so we’re still waiting on Holy and the other healers to see how everything works together. It’s very early still, but we’ve had a few spell changes and we can at least see how gameplay works,...

Shadow Word: Shadow’s place in Legion’s Priest content The World of Warcraft: Legion alpha has gone offline for the time being, came back shortly after this post was originally finished and we’ve got plenty to discuss with regards to Shadow Priests. Last month, we took a (mostly) spoiler-free look at how Shadow’s gameplay is shaping up so far. This month, it’s all about...



Video: Legion Priest class hall preview Saving the best for last, we’ve got one more class hall tour video for you: Priests! The Priest class hall is currently named “Netherlight Temple” and, while it features quite a bit of Draenic aesthetic, isn’t given a concrete location. Nevertheless, the hall itself seems decidedly themed on balancing the different practices of Priests. If...

Spiritual Guidance: Holy and Discipline Priest Artifact weapons and more in Legion alpha Priest healing specs aren’t open yet on the Legion alpha (obviously they’re too busy making us perfect right?), but Priest Artifact weapons and talent trees have made an initial appearance. Here we have a look at them, though keep in mind that they are subject to change at any moment, especially when they do get...

Shadow Word: Shadow Priest spells, talents, and gameplay in Legion Alpha Well, the Shadow Priest spec has officially earned the title “Only Priest Spec Available for Testing” which means we have a lot to discuss! Today, we’ll be going over most of the systems changes that will affect how we play Shadow in the upcoming Legion expansion. So without further ado, let’s hop right in and...

Know Your Lore: Priest Artifact lore in Legion Rossi’s been going over some of the new lore regarding the Artifact weapon reveals for Legion, and I’m going to jump into the fray as well, because there is a lot of material hidden among all those little introductory paragraphs we got for our new weapons. With so many new weapons and so much new...

Spiritual Guidance: Holy and Discipline Priests in Legion We received our class preview for the upcoming Legion on Tuesday. The second class to be reviewed, most of the responses have been relatively positive. We have some much needed changes shown and I’m cautiously optimistic. Given the proclamations I’ve seen about bringing old Priest alts out of retirement, these changes seem in the right...

Shadow Word: Shadow Priest changes coming in Legion Do you hear that? The whispering of something powerful and long-forgotten? That’s the sound of the Void, my shadowy friends, and it sounds very promising. Blizzard has released their official Priest preview and we’ve learned a lot about what it will mean to truly be a Shadow Priest in Legion. The changes are exciting and...

WoW Legion Priest class preview Priests are next up for Blizzard’s Legion class previews. The roles of each are going to be more distinct with bigger heals for Holy, a greater Shadowform for Shadow Priests, and Discipline is going to be a balance of the two with a slight nerf to their absorption shields. Let’s dive in.

class fantasy
Spiritual Guidance: Our own class fantasy BlizzCon soon approaches, and with it Legion‘s promise to go back to the fantasy of each class. Priests are unique because their class fantasy derives from their individual races, rather than the class itself. As I spoke previously regarding Class Halls, the Priest class changes depending on the race. In lore, Priests aren’t the same...
