Guardian Spirit is a priest ability learned at level 70 for those with the Holy specialization. A friendly target receives 60% more healing for 10 seconds. If the target dies while under the effect of the spell, the Guardian Spirit will prevent death by sacrificing itself and restore 40% of the target's maximum health.

Notes Edit

  • Any friendly target can only benefit from Guardian Spirit every 60 seconds (internal cooldown)
  • Guardian Spirit prevents death, it will not reset a target's threat.
  • The ability can be dispelled and is not affected by global cooldown.
  • Guardian Spirit is able to heal critically.
  • Guardian Spirit won't prevent death from fall damage.
  • A paladin's Ardent Defender heal must be on cooldown before Guardian Spirit can be consumed.

Tips Edit

  • This is the Holy priest's panic button when a party member is about to die.
  • Casting Guardian Spirit on the tank will allow the priest to heal other party members, while the tank is safe.
  • Using a macro or addon to announce your target is recommended.
