The Priest's "Spell" section lists all kinds of new spells that I've never heard of before, and no other site lists. Anyone know what's up with them? Are they a joke? Old spells that were removed? Super-secret information that only this site has? Inquiring minds wanna know. :)

They certainly aren't in the current Beta. Oh well- some of them look really good. :)

Our spell database is generated by parsing the client spell files directly. Taking a look, I'd guess that they're spells they were still working on when the last patch took place, so while they're in the spell files, they may not be available from trainers (yet?).

Having a knowledge of priests above other classes, I'll make a few comments:

The following skills I have never heard of:
Desparate Prayer
Fear Ward (NYI)
Shadowguard (this would be nice though!)
Elune's Grace

The following skills I have never heard of, and don't sound like they belong to the priest:
Hex of Weakness (warlock)
Touch of Weakness (warlock)
Starshards (druid?)
Devouring Plague (warlock)
Feedback (dunno what it even is)


As to whether or not these are not yet implemented, for most of them I doubt it. My main reason for this is that none of them are above level 20, and I know the thrust right now of Blizzard with new abilities is to give players some new skills that they acquire past level 30.

Edit: actually, I have to take some of that back. Blizzard did say when they implement priest class quests, that they would grant race-specific abilities. That could very well be what some of these are. Elune's Grace would obviously be a Night Elf spell. The warlock-sounding ones could be for undead.

I did some digging into the data for those spells, and I believe you were right, they appear to all have race limitations. I don't have enough information to map out the race list from that field yet, but they're definately each tagged to be specific for different races.

That's good news for the priest community, Ralea!
