Blizzard says "No!" to poison ---- wait, wha???


So, I was searching for some 3.1 talent calculators today, just to see if anyone had constructed any, and I come across this on Wowhead.

Most of the changes (short of the whole holy priest pvp viability thing) are included in Wowhead's build, but if you look down the tree, there's a weird 8th tier talent called Body and Soul.

Body and Soul : When you cast Power Word Shield, you increase the target's movement speed by 30% for 4 sec, and you have a 50% chance when you cast Abolish Disease on yourself to also cleanse one poison effect in addition to diseases.

Er... what? Is this for real and I missed it somewhere? The speed increase is a pretty neat thing, but I'm not sure about the whole chance-of-no-more-poison thing. Abolish Disease is something I use for... well, diseases.... and unless I missed it somewhere, rogues use poisons, but not diseases. @.@

Obviously, I'm gonna have to do some research on this, since I JUST found it (and maybe posted about it out of blog-fluff excitement ^_^), but this has to be bogus. The combination of effects is just not right. Or else my knowledge of other classes is just that bad. And what happened to Blizzard saying outright that they were NOT giving a poison-cleanse to priests? I'm so confused....

Damn you, Wowhead..... damn you.....


UPDATE

Just did some forum trolling, and, according to a forum post that Ghostcrawler replied to, this IS a real talent, with two ranks, with a 30/60% speed increase and a 50/100% chance of poison removal on the priest. I wonder if this talent will actually go through... Priests with poison removal.... and here they said they had no intention of giving it to us in any form. It's pretty cool, but I'm not holding my breath for it to make it into 3.1 proper QUITE yet.

...why were you "searching" for talent calculators with the most current ptr changes?
MMOChampion changes theirs. With every tiny change on the ptr.
Which I have told you.
8 or 9 times.
That is all...for now.
