Holy Nova seems to have an incredibly low chance to proc surge of light.

My name is Zoom and I am the fastest man alive. When I was a child, I started the impossible by playing world of warcraft in secret from my parents. Then an accident made me into the possible. To the outside world, I am just a priest, but secretly I use my speed to win arenas. I am Zoom.

Says on the spell Holy Nova only hit 5 ppl

But it deffenently says that it will hit all nearby enemy targets, still have to do it twice to kill hunter-snakes though

To be fair though holy nova has no cd so if it procced surge of light like divine star does it would be pretty ridiculous in some situations.

it used to be 15% prock chance from mop cus shields didnt give Surge of Light proc, plus u had to glyph Holy Nova.. obviusly it was too OP when Holy Nova got baselined and it was a 15% proc chance, thats why they nerfed it to 8%, it only heals up to 5 tagets.. thats why it procs less than the Divine Star witch heals everything it hits, its not very difficult math

To be honest I think there is another bug here which no one seems to have noticed I think (or could it be that it is intended?).

If a DK steals your 2-second Disc Silence with Dark Sim and launches it back at you, it counts as a full 5 second one as if it was copied from a Shadow Priest. It happened to me the other day (while of course there were no Spriests on enemy team).

If I recall correctly this happened during Wild season, but could anyone check this and confirm?

Because the random name generator might pump out Lortfanden, which sounds like a pretty generic fantasy Warrior name in English, until you realize it means "Shit Fuck" in Danish.

Surge of light proc only with, if i read the tooltip, with "healing spell and smite". Maybe Holy Nova, with its damage component, is not considered as a "healing spell" but an offensive spell, like holy fire.

I don't think it's a "bug", because Dark Sim copy the baseline spell, without any spec, glyph or perks. If a Dk copy a BoP, the BoP will put a 1-min forbearance on the target, instead of the 30s from the regular holy and ret spec.

Except u failed to notice where it DOES infact proc surge of light. Holy nova does proc it, the proc rate is broken when it heals everyone else.

...because he apparently predicted I was running for the silence? Or got lucky with his Sim? Honestly, what can I tell you? xD Then again, what does it matter though? It's just something I noticed and wrote it here to inform the others who didn't know this could happen.
