    Everyone knows about renew, flash heal, and greater heal but priests have alot more than these three at their disposal to make them expert healers.

    Prayer of Mending:
    Places a spell on the target that heals them for 800 the next time they take damage. When the heal occurs, Prayer of Mending jumps to a raid member within 20 yards. Jumps up to 5 times and lasts 30 seconds after each jump. This spell can only be placed on one target at a time.

    Great things about Prayer of Mending:
    It's an instant cast
    You can heal up to 5 people at a low mana cost
    With Prayer of Mending, the party member is actually healing themself. This means the aggro is on the healed, not on the priest.

    Prayer of Mending has a 10 second cooldown between casts.
    Casting Prayer of Mending again will stop the current spell and cast it fresh with 5 new charges.
    Prayer of Mending will not proc from environmental damage such as falling or from self-damage such as Lifetap but will proc from Shadow Word Death.
    POM appears to jump to the party/raid member within the 20 yard range with the greatest heath deficit.

    Mana Cost:
    Base mana cost is 390.
    The mana cost of Prayer of Mending can be decreased by up to 20% through the Healing Prayers talent of the Holy tree.
    The mana cost of Prayer of Mending can be decreased by up to an additional 10% through the Mental Agility talent of the Discipline tree.
    With full points in both talents, the mana cost is decreased to 273 mana.

    Prayer of Mending and + Heal: Prayer of Mending benefits from 42.9% of your healing bonus (per charge).

    Example Use for Prayer of Mending: The best party member for your Prayer of Mending is the Tank due to its aggro mechanics. Prayer of Mending generates aggro for the tank and is a low mana-cost spell, making it the perfect heal to toss at the beginning of a pull and throughout a fight.

    Be mindful of where your Prayer of Mending lands: If warlocks get in melee range, lifetap will typically put them at the largest health deficit causing your Prayer of Mending to land there wasted for 30 seconds.

    Where Prayer of Mending lands and the number of charges remaining:
    The mod Prayer of Mending Tracker is a small, movable window that will tell you who the Prayer is on and the number of charges left.
