With the number of changes to Chakra , I felt it was time to revisit Chakra after this last pass of changes. Chakra states will be a key and very important part of the Holy Priest healing toolbox. Keeping that in mind, we’ll need to be sure we know how these states operate and how we will likely be using them. If you have been following the blue posts you’ve already seen that Chakra: Renew has been removed from the game (on beta)– I have to admit, when I first saw this, I scowled. However, after some thinking… it makes sense.
4.0.1 has been out for a couple weeks now, and by now you’ve all had a chance to play with the new toys and spells we now have available.

Everyone’s a Little Bit RacistA look at the 4.0/Cata Racial Abilities
NOTE: This post has been updated and moved here for Mists of Pandaria. http://talesofapriest.com/resources/racial-bonuses/ Well, Cataclysm is now announced! December 7, 2010– the Beta still has some work that needs to be done (quest reward itemization, profession implementation to name a couple). However, we all need to remember that there are often several internal builds that Blizz’s teams are testing that the Beta folks do not have access to yet. I am confident that we’ll ultimately be pleased with the end result. With Cata FINALLY announced we need to start planning for it’s release. Not only will we have access to 5 more levels, new dungeons, new spells and abilities, we also will have access to new races and new race combinations with the classes. I am guilty of changing my race more …
