I’m getting the impressions that now that 3.0.2 has gone live, we will be seeing a truckload of “fixing” changes, such as the recent change to VE for shadow priests.
This morning, it was announced that the talent Divine Providence in the holy tree will be changed to also reduce the cooldown of Prayer of Mending. Divine Providence increases the healing of spells affecting multiple targets by 10%. It will now also make the cooldown of Prayer of Mending 7 seconds instead of 10.
We are sympathetic to the notion that Divine Providence feels like a second Spiritual Healing but with less effect. So we’re making this change:
Divine Providence now also reduces the cooldown of Prayer of Mending by 6/12/18/24/30%. With 5 points, it takes PoM from 10 to 7 sec cooldown.
The sad thing is, when I hit level 80, I think I am going to have to pick up Mental Agility in leiu of it. Mana efficiency comes first! I really think they should have rolled some mana conservation feature into it instead.
