Soul Warding is a priest talent, available after spending 3 talent points in Improved Power Word: Shield and 20 talent points in the Discipline tree. It reduces the cooldown of Power Word: Shield and its mana cost.
- With this talent, Power Word: Shield can be placed on multiple targets in a short amount of time, as it negates the base 4 second cooldown. It also increases mana regeneration by synergizing with Rapture.
- / Patch 4.0.1 (12-Oct-2010): Moved to tier 2, now 2 points, no longer reduces the mana cost of Power Word: Shield, reduces the cooldown of Power Word: Shield by 1/2 sec.
