Renew is a priest ability learned at level 26 for those with the Holy specialization. It is a Heal over Time (HoT) spell, a strong heal and one of the more mana-efficient heals priests have available. It has slow moving threat, so it can play as a useful opening heal while the tank gains aggro or serves as a solid heal while aggro is bouncing.
