Renewed Hope is a priest talent on Tier 3 of the Discipline tree that increases the critical effect of your [Flash Heal], [Greater Heal], [Heal] and the healing from [Penance] by 5/10% on targets afflicted by the Weakened Soul effect, or your [Grace] effect.

Tips and tactics

  • As both Grace and the Weakened Soul debuff (gained from receiving a [Power Word: Shield]) have a 15 second duration, this talent essentially grants an extra 5/10% crit chance for most of the priest's direct heals, on any target that has been shielded or healed (with these spells) within 15 seconds.
  • Although Power Word: Shield does not benefit directly from this talent,  [Glyph of Power Word: Shield] does.
  • As Power Word: Shield gains the least benefit from this talent, it provides Discipline priests with yet another reason to shield first, heal second.
