Speaking of Atonement power
Atonement is a moving force of several talents that this healer has. The most powerful are Power Word: Shield, Shadow Mend and, of course, Power Word: Radiance. Use them all, one by one, according to the battle scenario you are in. We will explain why to do it and how to apply those talents.
Power Word: Shield is the most impressive and protective talent of Discipline Priest. Its main advantages: it gives you +40% of speed and decrease damages the enemies give you plus Power Word: Shield does not have limits of usage as every 6 seconds of the battles you may repeat it. Note: it lasts for 3 seconds only, so count every step of your personage not to lose your odds.
Power Word: Radiance is extremely useful when you play with a group of personages. If the previous talent could protect one hero, this one heals 5 players and at the same time cover other 5 players with Atonement.
Experienced players consider Power Word: radiance to be the best weapon in the raids of all kinds. Talking of duration, to compare with the previous talent it lasts much longer but if to speak of other talents then it takes only 60% of it, meaning 15 seconds.
Power Word: Pain is another powerful weapon upon the enemies in BFA. It works in two directions at once: give instant damage which is 22% all enemies at once and extra 132% during 16 seconds.
We did not forget about Shadow Mend we’ve mentioned as one of the most effective talents of the healer. It’s used when the hero needs a healing right now and there is no even a second to wait while other spells will work. While healing the hero Discipline priest also allows using Atonement.
Priests know everything about spells
Here are some other talents to use in rotation with Atonement.
Penance helps to heal the injured heroes and at the same time deal damages on cooldown. So, it works both, in offensive and defensive ways. In sense of offensive function it gives 3 kinds of damages. Castigation for all personages, Holy damaged and healing function during 2 seconds for each player of the team. Use it as much as possible at cooldown. The only thing that prevent penance from working is Shapeshifted.
Holy Nova is perfect in battles with a big number of enemies as it spread Holy damage of 20,5% from the burst of light to all foes at once. Simultaneously Holy Nova heals the damaged allies for 12 seconds.
Purge the Wicked is important in rotation as it works a little different than other talents. It gives Fire damage to all enemies – 30% instantly and 130% during 20 seconds. While casting Penance on your enemies Purge the Wicked hits all nearby enemies within 40 yards.
