Shadow Mend is a level 19 Discipline and Shadow priest ability. It is a replacement for Spell holy flashheal [Flash Heal].

Shadow Mend is a powerful healing spell, almost twice as powerful as Spell holy flashheal [Flash Heal], and even outpowering Holy priest's Spell holy greaterheal [Heal]. It comes at a price of damage over time effect that lasts until target takes damage equal to half of Shadow Mend's healing, from any source of damage, or until they leave combat.

For Discipline priests, Shadow Mend is one of the three spels that grant Ability priest atonement [Atonement].
