  • Symbol of Hope
  • Friendly healers are recovering 2% of missing mana every 1 sec.
  • Duration: 5 seconds

Symbol of Hope is a level 85 Holy priest ability that restores mana to the casting priest and their group's healers.


  • Restores a total of 12% mana over its duration to each Healer in the priest's group.
    • Haste reduces the channel period and time between ticks, but does not add extra ticks.
  • Symbol of Hope will only affect players in Healing specializations. Other specializations that primarily use mana as a resource (such as Arcane) cannot receive mana from this ability.
  • Unlike the previous Legion version, the casting priest must channel the spell for its entire duration for the group's healers to receive full benefit. Movement or interruption will cancel the channel early, forfeiting the remaining mana restoration.
    • Since Patch 8.1.5, the first tick is now instant, guaranteeing a minimum of 2% mana restored even when the spell is interrupted early.

Patch changes

  • Battle for Azeroth Patch 8.1.5 (2019-03-12): Symbol of Hope's channel time reduced to 5 seconds (was 6 seconds) and is now affected by Haste. The amount of mana returned is unchanged. Additionally, Symbol of Hope can now be correctly cast while in [Spirit of Redemption].
  • Battle for Azeroth Patch 8.0.1 (2018-07-17): Symbol of Hope is no longer a talent, and has been redesigned as a baseline ability available to Holy priests at level 85.
    Previous talent effect: Bolster the morale of all healers in your party or raid within 40 yards, allowing them to cast spells for no mana for 12 sec. Instant cast. 6 min cooldown.
  • Legion Patch 7.1.5 (2017-01-10): Duration is now 12 seconds (was 10 seconds).
  • Legion Patch 7.0.3 (2016-07-19): Added.
