Power Word: Shield question

Hello! I am having an issue with PW:S in pvp that I can’t seem to find a solution to. While playing my Disc Priest whenever I cast PW:S I get horrified when casting on someone with Vampiric Touch or I trigger an Ele Shamans control of lava if the target Ally has an active Flame Shock. I can’t seem to figure out why this is happening. To my knowledge PW:S does not dispel anything so why is it triggering horrify or control of lava? Also noted that it does not trigger Unstable Affliction when shielding an ally with the UA debuff.

If you’re using Vuhdo it’s because there is an option to auto prioritize dispel when the mouseoever/target is debuffed. You might be pressing PW:S but Vuhdo is sending the command to dispel first.

Go to vuhdo > spells tab > Misc screen and untick Smart Cast for Cleanse.


Thanks! That worked! Much appreciated!
