    New Priest Tier Confusion

    So i'm confused, in the new expansion shadow priests will have to choose between our traditional fear or two other abilities with high cooldowns?

    Or beacuse we choose the shadow priest specialization, we automaticly get our fear?



    Also, there are some talents like PH that are in the shadow tree but don't appear in the talent list.

    I'm confused. Can someone help me out?

    Edit: Someone else. If we choose our traditional fear, what about the "improved" talent that we have now? Is it just going to be stuck on a 30 second cooldown?

    They have not announced the base talent skills for all the classes as of yet that i have seen. So i have no clue what spells we will get as priests from the shadow tree. But what i can say is the that this tier holds some rather cool skills that i personally prefer to our generic fear.

    EDIT: Sory incase you haven't seen, they are going to have 3 different talents parts. You have your Main Talent spec IE, shadow, disc, holy. Then they will have base spells you only learn within this tree, IE mind flay, penance and chakra. Then you will have this "tier" system to choose your additional spells or abilities.

    I also just found out about the 30 second cooldown for the tendrils. I thought it was a 1 minute cooldown. That's pretty badass actually. Especially in capture the flag situations.

    As for the "improved" talent i don't think anybody is 100% sure what is happening with those types of talents since not everything has been released yet. I would wait until the Q&A portion later, i am sure some people will have similar questions to be asked

    I agree completely with that Tendrils, or hell even when im healing to drop that tendril and fear a rogue or warrior off me constantly for 10 seconds so i can continue healing til one of my DPS kills them off.

    i'm just glad that Shadow Priests are finally becoming unique again.

    Do we want to be vampires who drain health?

    Do we want to suddenly be able to give ourselves FULL health again when we cast shadow fiend? (You know that's going to be macro'd)

    Or just cast vow of unity / disperse and laugh?


    This new talent system is such a game changer that I literally want to play classes that I never even thought about trying out before, simply because one spec or another wasn't viable in pvp.

    Fury warrior pvper, here I come!

    Expect to lose some abilities.
    Notice holy pallies won't have hammer of wrath anymore.


    Until beta hits, I'd be prepared for the worst and hope for the best.

    the fact that Blizzard finally tore a page from 3.5's player handbook is more then I could have asked for.
