Subj: Priest Classlead Changes

We're pleased to announce the release of our Priest classlead report! You'll find some exciting new changes that will help balance the offensive and defensive aspects of the class. The details of the changes are as follows:

Spirituality
------------
* CHASTEN - Amnesia has been replaced with weariness in the affliction pool.
* SPIRITWRACK - Disloyalty has been replaced with masochism in the affliction pool.
* SPIRITWRACK now informs the priest when and what it afflicts with.
* STRIP will now always strip the shield defence if present (also applies to Baalzadeens).
* SAP now respects the shield defence.

Devotion
--------
* INSPIRATION now has a reduced devotion cost.
* RECLAIM has been added, allowing a priest's rites to be dissolved and some devotion restored.
* INQUISITION will now allow ABSOLVE to work at a higher total mana percentage.
* ILLUMINATE has been added, allowing new functionality for Priests and Paladins.

Healing
-------
* A balance has been introduced for using HEALing abilities. This cost varies depending on the target of the action.
* LASH has been added, allowing a new offensive aspect to the healing skill.
* DISRUPT has been added, employing elemental and spirit channels to hinder your foe.
* BEDEVIL has been reworked, allowing a priest to sacrifice his or her healing abilities to inundate their attackers with afflictions.

As always, we'll be monitoring these changes closely, and we may make further adjustments as necessary. If you encounter anything out of the ordinary, please file a BUG with as much information as possible.
