Only against warriors fake casting is kind of useless. Even then it's only kind of. (4 second interrupt vs. 3 second silence)
Theres only certain classes ill fake cast against, (with a different school i mean), and thats primarily mages, shamans and whoever uses counterspell type abilites. Obviously i dont fake cast against stun classes because whatever your casting your gonna get stunned whatever. I normally try to leg it from melee lol.
I shouldve been a bit clearer and stated it was mainly against mages and CS type classes etc sorry.
I was in work so didnt really have time to think or type properly lol, but i thought of it while in work and wouldve forgot otherwise by the time i got home. Soz for the confusion.
I'm not the worlds greatest priest ;p but ive got 2k rating so far. I seem to find myself (and my team) up against mages and shamans and silence/interupt classes a hell of a lot and found doing it like that was easier for me. I think its because i can tell if ive been interupted quicker using different school of magic than if i fake cast and get the CS as i dont notice if ive been CS or not.
I used to do quite a bit of damage as disc spiking and blasting if they enemy let me and if i got CS then i could just heal or whatever. I always felt i had an option, whether its help with dmg or heal away..
You don't fake cast against "stun classes ?" you do know that all classes have some sort of interupt/silence now and all the classes that DO have a stun are mostly melee, so you're basically contradicting yourself.
On topic : I think with this new interupt system, fakecasting is more important now that it was in previous expansions, because of the longer cd and the longer duration of the intterupt if it does land
I also didnt mean i *never* fake cast melee.. Fake casting melee is a nightmare. But I miss spiking and deathing
the title is misreading tho. Shouldve been about using other schools and lockouts etc. I give up ;p im talking shit lol

So, can someone explain why OP can't fake cast anymore? I'd like to know if something has changed in the game, since I can't currently play? You still get interrupted if you stop your own cast or what? Or he means disc priests no longer have shadow spells with a cast time so he can't bait interrupt on mind spike/mind blast?
But then again that might be too overpowered and it will just become a must-have glyph... But if it also increased cooldown by 2 secs to pre-mop 10 seconds CD then it might be okay....... :P

My apologies, ive misled you by the looks with the wrong title for this topic. I was in work and had to do it quick inbetween things i was doing and my boss nipping in and out lol. (naughty i know but i aint the only one who checks stuff on forums when waiting for, in my case, enzymes and chemicals to do their thing surely?? ;p)
