Starshards was one of the priest racial abilities available only to Night elf priests. It was a potent Arcane-based instant damage over time spell that could be used by night elf priests and priestesses to rain starshards down upon their foes.

It was a lesser version of the powerful [Starfall] spell which is commonly used by Priestesses of the Moon such as Tyrande Whisperwind.
