    Post PATCH NOTES: CLERIC Notes for Beta

    CABALIST
    The Cabalist soul has seen some major changes to help make its use more understandable and to make it easier to combine with other souls. The most significant change is the removal of the Decay mechanic.

    Cabalist Gift: Symbol of the Ancient Increases your damage by 1% per point spent in the Cabalist soul.

    Major Ability Changes:
    * Curses: These no longer trigger from the target's ability usage and no longer have cooldowns.
    * Shadow's Touch: This is now exclusively single target. Bound Fate has been moved to 0 points and had its cooldown removed to compensate.
    * Obliterate: Now a self buff that makes Tyranny of Death and Mass Disintegration only affect one target, but deal double damage.
    * Dark Passage: This now works like Pyromancer's 'Flicker' - removes control effects and teleports the caster - and is purchasable in the third tier of the Soul Tree.
    * Sign of Asias: Now reduces the global cooldown triggered by AoEs to 1 second, and makes Bound Fate insta-cast.
    * Maelstrom: Separated effects in PvP vs. PvE. In PvE it pulls in up to 5 mobs and snares them. In PvP it only pulls 3 players/pets with no snare. The radius in either situation is 30 meters.
    * Sigil of Secrecy: Now also interrupts the targets hit.

    New Root Abilities:
    * Tyranny of Death: Instant cast. Deals AoE Death damage after 10s. Triggers early if damaged by your Tyranny of Death.
    * Sigil of Spirits: Instant cast. AoE effect that increases non-Physical damage taken by the affected targets by 5%. [Basically, a castable AoE version of Inquisitor's Clinging Spirit.]
    * Disintegration: Instant cast. Deals AoE Death damage and triggers Tyranny of Death. 15 second cooldown.
    * Mass Reversal: Raid-wide version of Cabalist's Reversal of Fortune (spell reflect). 45 second cooldown.
    * Esoteric Estimations: 10-second duration channeled ability. Restores 5% mana per second.
    * Seeping Death: Damage shield that deals AoE Death damage when hit. Can only be maintained on 1 ally at a time.
    * Wall of Souls: Instant cast. Ground targeted rectangular AoE that deals Death damage over time and applies Soul Decay. Soul Decay lasts for 5 seconds, stacks to 5, and increases damage taken from Wall of Souls by 10% per stack.
    * Sigil of Catastrophe: Instant cast. AoE ability that applies all Sigils at once. 1 minute cooldown.
    * Curse of Anarchy: Instant cast. AoE pulsing Death damage.
    * Unleash Oblivion: 2.5-second duration channeled ability. Deals Death damage in an expanding ring that then contracts inwards at the end of the duration, dealing the damage again to targets within the ring. 1 minute cooldown.

    Removed Root Abilities:

    * Distorted Shadows
    * Lurking Decay
    * Tyranny

    The Druid now has a wider selection of pets as well as an increased emphasis on positioning. They not only now have tank pets and a ranged DPS pet, but Druids gain a number of benefits when attacking from behind.

    INQUISITOR
    The Inquisitor has seen the fewest changes of all of the Cleric souls. The most obvious change is that Life and Death Concord is no longer RNG-based.

    SHAMAN
    While the Shaman should look very familiar, it's seen a fair number of changes to give them a better flow and remove much of the RNG reliance. Long Memory is no more. In its place is Pattern of Violence which causes all weapon attacks to reduce the current cooldown of Massive Blow. Brutalize stacking is a non-factor, because it only lasts 4 seconds now, which is faster than you will be able to use Massive Blow again.

    Shaman Gift: Call of Ice - Increases damage done by 1% per point spent in the Shaman soul.

    Major Ability Changes:
    * Vengeances: Now trigger on weapon attacks, instead of melee abilities.
    * Jolt: No longer off of global cooldown, and no longer requires a Critical Hit before it can be used. Rather, it can now be used at any time, but deals far more damage if used after a Critical Hit.
    * Battle Charge: Renamed to Ride the Lightning, and lets you deal Air damage to everyone in range along the way as you charge toward your enemy.
    * Courage spells: Now take the form of Self Buffs which no longer affect your raid, but stack on top of normal raid buffs.
    * Heart of the Frozen Sea: Now the only Heart buff and affects all Resistances.
    * Strike of the Maelstrom: Eye of the Storm is gone, but this now spreads Frozen Wrath.
    * Rage of the North: Applies 10 stacks which each increase Critical Hit chance by 10%. Each time you Critically Hit, a stack is removed.
    * Ageless Ice: Now returns 7% mana instead of 10%.
    * Brutalize: Reduced bleed damage to 15-45% of Massive Blow. Duration shortened to 3 seconds.
    * Frozen Embrace: Now increases your chance to critically hit with Air and Water abilities by 5-10%.

    New Root Abilities:
    * Numbing Cold: Instant cast. A ranged debuff that reduces healing and absorption received by 10%.
    * Vengeance of the Chosen: Self Buff. Causes weapon attacks to restore health to the Cleric.
    * Windwalk: Self Buff. Increases Dodge and Parry by 25% for 15 seconds, and movement speed by 50% for 15 seconds.
    * Icy Blow: Weapon attack that deals Water damage.
    * Deep Freeze: Freezes all nearby enemies, stunning them and increasing damage taken from you by 50% for 3 seconds. Debuff portion will function regardless of stun immunity. 1 minute cooldown.
    * Snowbank: Instant. Ranged snare.
    * Glacial Strike: Weapon attack that deals Water damage. Ignores 25% of the target's Resistance. Only usable on targets under 30% health.
    * Courage of the Panther: Self Buff. Causes abilities to ignore 20% of their target's Armor & Resistance.
    * Furious Assault: Self Buff, not on global cooldown. Reduces your global cooldown by 0.5 seconds for 10 seconds. 1 minute cooldown.
    * Rush of Strength: Resets the cooldown on Massive Blow. 30 second cooldown.

    Removed Root Abilities:
    * Courage of the Jaguar
    * Fated Blow
    * Glory of the Chosen

    * Heart of the Fire Mountain
    * Vengeance of the Piercing Cold

    WARDEN
    The Warden has received a number of new spells and adjustments to fully flesh them out as the Cleric's premier AoE healing soul. They now have the easiest access to quick-recast area of effect heals, all of which hit up to 10 party or raid members. They are now also built for greater damage potential to increase their utility between raid damage spikes.

    Warden Gift: Ocean's Glory: Increases your healing done and absorption granted by 1% per point, and damage done by 0.5% per point spent in the Warden soul.

    Major Ability Changes:
    * Single target healing has been reduced in relative effectiveness in favor of increasing DPS and AoE healing effectiveness.
    * Healing Cataract is now fast re-use and accessible at 12 points in the root of the Soul Tree.
    * A number of AoE healing tools have been moved to Warden (and subsequently renamed) from the Sentinel and Purifier, namely: Surging Flames (now Shared Excess), Protect the Flock (now Reef Barrier), and Embolden (now Distant Shores).
    * Orbs of the Stream, Orbs of the Tide: These are now instant cast, last 30 seconds, and have 1 minute cooldowns.
    * Fluidity: Now increases the damage of your damage over time abilities by 5-15%, and the healing done by your heal over time effects by 5-15%.
    * All heal over time abilities can now be specced to not cause any aggro, allowing them to be precast before the tank pulls without having to worry about gaining aggro as a result.

    New Root Abilities:
    * Overflowing Renewal: 2.5 second cast heal. Any overhealing is spread to up to 2 additional party or raid members.
    * Geyser: Instant cast. Deals Water damage - less than Waterjet - and heals up to 10 party or raid members near the enemy.
    * Crushing Waves: Instant cast. PBAE knockback. 15 second cooldown.
    * Call of the Depths: 2 second cast. Increases Water damage over time for 12 seconds.
    * Shared Excess: Buff. Causes 50% of your overhealing on the target to spread to up to 5 party or raid members.
    * Healing Effusion: Instant cast. Restores a lot of health on up to 10 party or raid members, but very mana inefficient.
    * Open Water: 10 second channeled ability. Restores 5% mana per second.
    * Pool of Restoration: Instant cast. PBAE (affecting up to 10 party or raid members) that triggers a second PBAE that heals up to 10 party or raid members. 15 second cooldown.
    * Oversaturation: Instant cast. Deals Water damage to the target whenever a nearby party or raid member is healed (can only trigger once per second). Lasts 15 seconds.
    * Wave of Renewal: 3 second channeled ability. Heals all party and raid members in an expanding ring that then contracts back inwards after the channel time is over, healing everyone inside the ring again. 1 minute cooldown.
    * Flash Flood: Instant cast, not on global cooldown. Causes your next 5 Water-based HoTs or DoTs to function in half the time.
    * Monsoon: Applies Healing Flood, Healing Spray, and 4 stacks of Soothing Stream on up to 10 party or raid members. 60 second cooldown.
