- "You have been judged unworthy. May the Light have pity upon your blackened soul." —Boris Brightbeard
- This ability was added to replace Fear Ward as the racial priest spell for dwarven and draenei priest.
- Chastise was a Holy spell, rendering it unusable by priests in Shadowform.
- Some players reported that the damage caused by Chastise appeared to scale with spell damage.
- Also, players reported that Chastise didn't share the global cooldown; this characteristic made it ideal for use in multiple-action macros.
|Holy Word: Chastise|
In cataclysm Chastise will return for all priests as the signature spell for a holy priest and will be renamed "Holy Word: Chastise". It will deal damage to the target and disorient them for 3 seconds.
It should be noted that in cataclysm ranks have been removed on all spells and as a result spell damage will scale according to your current level in addition to all other ordinary factors such as spell power.
Found on tier 5 of the holy tree is the talent known as Revelations. This talent morphs your Holy Word: Chastise spell into a new spell based on your current Chakra state. This talent allows the holy priest to slip between roles as necessary.
