  • This ability was added to replace [Fear Ward] as the racial priest spell for dwarven and draenei priest.
  • Chastise was a Holy spell, rendering it unusable by priests in [Shadowform].
  • Some players reported that the damage caused by Chastise appeared to scale with spell damage.
  • Also, players reported that Chastise didn't share the global cooldown; this characteristic made it ideal for use in multiple-action macros.
