The Holy Priest and Disc Priest T16 bonuses have been announced.
- Item – Priest T16 2P Bonus (New) Serendipity also increases the healing of your next Greater Heal or Prayer of Healing by 50% per stack. While Archangel is active, your critical chance is increased by 10%.
- Item – Priest T16 4P Bonus (New) Circle of Healing and Prayer of Mending casts increase the effect of your next Holy Word spell by 50%, stacking up to 10 times. While Spirit Shell is active, you gain 10% haste and 3,500 mastery.
For Disc, having a 10% crit while using Archangel (aka wings) is really strong and the 4pc bonus to spirit shell is pretty significant. Having spirit shell up with archangel is a 10-15% healing buff. For non-absorb healers, this buffs discs absorbs, at a time when most healers are wishing the absorbs would get nerfed.
The downside to Disc, is that many priests are simply running spirit shell and then Power Word Shield because of all the haste and mastery with as much Atonement as possible, while abandoning all other healing spells.
For holy, the T16 bonuses as it stands will make holy a super OP healer for T16 and it seems likely that the bonuses will be nerfed, so don’t get too excited.
Note: Priest T16 isn’t working as the tooltip states on the PTR currently.
