Holy Nova is a priest ability learned via the [Glyph of Holy Nova]. It causes damage to all enemies within ten yards and also heals up to five allies within range, dividing the healing equallt among them. It causes no threat.

Modified by


  • It can be used in aggro-sensitive fights to avoid getting aggro.
  • Holy Nova generates no threat. However, it will put you on the aggro table, so if no other player is attacking a mob, the mob will attack you.


  • Holy Nova was originally a 31-point holy talent, and has been subject to many tweaks over time, including changes in cooldown, mana cost, and actual effect.
