    Void Tendrils... is it odd im happy?

    Kay, so one of the new talents at 15 is void Tendrils it is basicly a root, but im not happy about that... im happy cus its tenticles... so much possible fan art XD

    But realy im exited as it gives shadow priests a way to be all twilight cultist; like a certain arch bishop.

    Im guessing it will work like frost nova, or yeh speculation i think this will be a nice abillity Anyway what are peoples thoughts on summoning Tendrils from the ground?

    Edit: may aswell ask on thoughts of any other new talents; one at 90 is void shift: swap health % with a target, O s#*t button

    You sick, twisted perv!

    No but seriously, I think the new talent benefits are quite stupid and useless compared to the old model.

    I really like the direction they are taking with these new talents. It wasn't as much fun if you were forced to a certain spec to get top heals / dps / tankage, plus some specs were rendered useless ( Rogue Subtlety for example ). Having to choose 1 of 3 spells that basically do the same thing per talent point seems OK.

    OT: I bet those Void Tendrils are just some recolored Entangling Roots

    I hate the fact that they can kill the tendril to cancel the effect, it will probably have 20k hp


    Even if they say the cookie cutter specs are removed, there is a blatant cookie cutter talent spec for shadow, the last tier you will always pick Vampiric Domination unless you want to be a hero and save your tank once every 3 minutes.

    The druid also get some tentacle action, inform of AOE roots :P

    This abilities awesome factor astounds me, though I'd like to see it in action. I am hoping the tendrils have the basic 90% AOE protection, and enough HP to last at least 5 seconds with a single player's focus fire. If it turns out limit, I'll have to stick with good 'ol functional psychic scream, which kind of sucks because it isn't nearly as flashy as either psyfiend of the tentacles.

    I kinda wish it was a slow instead, or at least had a slow effect on mobs immune to root, as that would be a lot more useful in raids, as most enemies there are immune to root.

    Hopefully it's flashy.

    However there's so much root immunity that giving up Psychic Scream doesn't seem sensible even with the counters to Psychic Scream. Maybe if it was something like Root, if immune to root then Snare, if immune to Root and Snare then a Tentacle picks them up and holds them in place rendering them immune too further effects while another tentacle yells at them in frustration and tells them about how hard it is to find a Japanese Schoolgirl in a Western RPG.

    Tbh I couldn't agree more. While some of the options may be tricky, I will no doubt take this over the other 2 options. Tentacles ftw and I love the old god shadowy tentacle stuff we often see in game. and I have hoped for a spell using them for quite some time. =D Lets just hope it will be useful and the spell effect isn't too cheap. :P

    Well, while they're killing it, you're killing them. It's all good.

    Do we still get to keep Psychic Horror and Silence? Void tents + Fear + Psychic Horror + Silence = win if so.

  17. #17
    Well psychic horror is on the same talent tier as void tendrils so you would have choose between those two. No word on if silence will be baseline for any spec yet though.

    Actually that's incorrect. The first tier is Psychic Scream or Psyfiend. Psychic Horror is a separate ability, Horror is the one that makes you fear in place for 3 seconds and disarms for 10 seconds. Scream makes you run in fear for 8 seconds (unless glyphed in which case you stay in place as well.)

    On the topic of the tendrils, i actually think it's an amazing idea by Blizz for a shadow priest, especially since it's actually a well fitting spell for a shadow priest.

    Actually i could see this being useful in PvP as well for a Disc or Holy Priest too, i wouldn't mind having that kind of ability in a BG, arenas i think i'd still prefer the Scream or Psyfiend though.
