'''Dispersion''' is a [[priest]] ability learned at level 60 for those with the Shadow specialization. Dispersion protects the priest by reducing damage taken by 90% for six sec. The priest will regenerate 6% mana every second up to 36% of mana total. Due to its relatively short cooldown and free cast, Dispersion is an excellent regeneration spell. Dispersion can be cast while [[stun]]ned, [[fear]]ed or [[silence]]d, which makes it very useful in [[PvP]] as well.

It has many uses in PvE besides just regenerating mana; can also be used to soak large ([[AoE]]) hits that would kill even a well-geared tank.
