    Do Disc Shields Scale with SP?

    Was asked by a friend that played a priest in BC and I wasn't exactly sure how to answer because I haven't heard much on the topic. So his question to me was, "Do priest shield absorptions STILL scale with spellpower?".

    Thanks in advance

    They have a baseline scaling coefficient; All priests can grab this. Discipline's Spell Power Coefficient is much larger, due to Borrowed Time, however.

    Do you know the math off hand?

    Incidentally, you can get glyph of PW:S, cast shield and multiply the amount by 5 to see how much damage exactly your shield absorbs.

    That's not completely accurate, Atty.

    Anyways, here's the math behind power word: Shield.

    (base_absorb+(0.8068+0.08*BT)*sp)*(1+0.05*IMP)*(1+ 0.02*FP)*(1+0.01*TD)[*]base_absorb is the base absorb given the PW:S which is 2230 at the moment [*]BT is your Borrowed Time level [*]SP is your Spell Power [*]IMP is your Improved Power Word: Shield level [*]FP is your Focused Power level [*]TD is your Twin Disciplines level
    e.g. (2230+(0.8068+0.08*5)*2500)*(1+0.05*3)*(1+ 0.02*2)*(1+0.01*5) = 6589

    This of course, is taken from WoW Wiki

    So for the cookie cutter Disc priest, each point of spellpower increases the shield's health absorb value by about 1.5.
