|Greater Blessing of Kings|
|Casting time||Instant cast|
Greater Blessing of Kings is a group buff that distributes Blessing of Kings, increasing affected character's stats by 10% for 30 minutes. Players may only have one Blessing on them per Paladin at any one time. It will buff multiple party or raid members of level 52 or higher at once.
Greater blessings follow these rules when cast:
- The spell target must be friendly, in line of sight, and in range of the caster.
- If the target is flagged PvP, the caster becomes flagged.
- The target gains the buff.
- Group buff splash - With some exceptions†, all characters in the target's party or raid that share his class and are within 100 yards of him also gain the buff. This effect is not limited by line of sight. As a result, the caster can buff people at triple the spell range.
† Characters will be excluded from the group buff splash if they are lower than the spell's trained level, or are flagged PvP when the caster is not.
Exclusion by PvP status disrupts raid preparation; typically, the raid will wait for flags to expire, or order the buffing classes to become flagged themselves.
Greater Blessing of Kings only applies while you are in the group with the paladin who cast it. If you leave the party or raid, this blessing will be removed. The 10% Stamina from does not stack, and does not stack at all.
