3.1 Undocumented Changes

MMO Champion, those lovely guys, have mined the undocumented changes and so I present them here:

Paladin

* All Paladin auras have had their tooltip changed to note that they work on the entire raid, not just the party.

Meh. Bug fix.

Holy
Skills

* Exorcism can now be used on all targets, but is now a guaranteed critical strike vs Undead and Demon type mobs.
* Judgement of Light now procs off spells as well. (Previously only “attacks” would trigger this)

Both full of win. Could have used the Exorcism change while levelling, but I’ll take it now.

Talents

* Purifying Power (Tier 6) now reduces the cooldown of your Exorcism and Holy Wrath spells by 17/33%. (Previously increased the critical strike chance of those spells by 10/20%)

Don’t have it now and am not gonna take it.

* Pure of Heart (Tier 5) now reduces Curse, Poison, and Disease effects by 15/30%. (Previously was 25/50% but did not include poisons)

Don’t have it now and am not gonna take it. PvP, if you ask me.

* Blessed Hands has been moved from Tier 5 to Tier 4 and now reduces the mana cost of Hand of Freedom, Hand of Sacrifice and Hand of Salvation by 15/30% and cooldowns by 10/20%.

Don’t have it now and am not gonna take it. Seems a useless talent me.

* Improved Concentration Aura’s (Tier 4) reduced silence/interrupt effect now works while any aura is active.

Intriguing. I had this in TBC, but with the need to delve into ret for crit, I passed on it for Lich King.

Protection
Skills

* Shield of Righteousness now deals 130% of block value + 520 at the highest rank. It no longer causes a high amount of threat. (Previously increased damage by a set amount)
* Blessing of Kings is now a baseline ability. Trainable at level 20.

SoR was a fun little ability to get so a little more damage is nice. And the Kings change has needed to be made for so long, I’m thrilled it’s finally here.

I didn’t include the rest of the skills and talents for prot and ret because they don’t really have any impact on holy pallies.
