Soul Warding is a priest talent, available after spending 5 talent points in the Discipline tree. It reduces the cooldown of Power Word: Shield and its mana cost.


  • With this talent, Power Word: Shield can be placed on multiple targets in a short amount of time, as it negates the base 4 second cooldown. It also increases mana regeneration by synergizing with Rapture.
