Tips and Tactics
Is often used in conjunction with Devouring Plague or Prayers, due to their huge mana costs. It is especially useful for Prayer of Healing and Divine Hymn, as these spells use both aspects of Inner Focus.
It may be useful to use it early in long fights, to be able to use it more than once.
Because Inner Focus reduces your next spell's cost to 0, the next spell cast does not trigger the five second rule for casting, allowing you to regenerate mana as if you were not casting. Chained with a Holy Concentration's Clearcasting proc and spirit increasing trinkets, this can allow you to regenerate a truly massive amount of mana in combat.
This can be converted to an exellent oh s***t button by Disc Priests, since it affects all ticks of Penance. At higher levels its effectiveness will be reduced, however.
As of Patch 2.4, Chastise now benefits from Inner Focus. In addition, Starshards no longer consumes Inner Focus. Also, Touch of Weakness and Shadowguard will no longer consume the Inner Focus charge when triggered.
