    Priests are way out of hand.

    So far I've done 58 2v2 matches as a Hpala / BM hunter. Every loss is against a team with a Disc priest.

    How on earth am I supposed to kill them? I actually managed to get one to 60% once.

    Yes shadow priest need to be nerfed!...Wait what?

    But seriously just cc the priest and kill the dps, a hunter and paladin has plenty of ccs.

    Lost to others too of course. But 99% of them seem to be priest teams :P

    You beat their health down to nothing, then chain your ccs and interrupt them with they try hard casting and win.

    Essentially you want to force them to try to hard cast and make sure both you and the hpala are on top of interrupts.

    Your hunter obviously isnt going full retard hard enough.

    But seriously, between hpally and hunter you can chain cc a disc nearly indefinitely. Scatter -> Trap -> silencing shot -> Fist of justice. 20 second cc chain every 30 seconds. If your hunter cant land kills with that, you got issues.

    I think it's because I'm playing with a guy who just dinged 90 and got honor gear, never played HPala or Healer in PvP, hasn't played since TBC and we didn't use Skype or such.

    Was just the first day of Arena and after we got to around 1600 I was tired of the priest teams. Perhaps it goes better when we actually communicate and plan our CC :P

    Double Ret is also a fun comp to face. Managed to beat some, but my god are their burst insane.

    Key words in this thread: 2v2, just dinged 90, honor gear, first day of arena, 1600 rating.

    Yeah, blame the priest class.

    Indeed, thanks for mentioning that in your opening post!

    Your Paladin probably gets forced to bubble a lot earlier than he would using Malev/Tyranical and it's instantly Mass Dispelled. I imagine that's why you have faster losses. 1600 isn't super high, I usually play 16XX on my Holy Paladin and 17/1800 on my Disc for 2s caps without voice chat. Try to get some voice chat going on, talk about the teams you'll face in the ready room and do what you can. Your Paladin partner has a lot to learn about positioning, healing and CC chaining and it will not be easy until he gets some gear. I went from 85 gear to 90 over the course of a week (doing 2s with a guild Warlock, Warrior and DK to get Conquest and BGs in my down time) and it was funny when they didn't see my health and left me and hilarious when they did see my health and I had to kite like a bitch (or die).

    I think the biggest issue with Disc is Focused Will. I still don't understand why Blizzard hasn't nerfed this yet by, at a minimum, removing the "activates on any non-periodic critical" effect, but meh. Nothing I can do about that.

    Ironicly this is the same thing that everyone was doing to the hunter class, now our special spell of the expansion is literally a waste of a button. Gotta love double standards. But dont worry, unlike most I wont go and cry on the official forums until a blue wipes my tears.

    I personally think priests are pretty powerful, however they are essentially a BM hunters worst nightmare, large sustain and dots.

    Focused will has been around for a long while now, it's definitely not game breaking.

    As a hunter I don't see how yours can't solo him.

    Don't worry guys, MM is going to be right up there with BM next patch.

    CC the disc timing your chains then go FULL HODOR on the DPS.

    you can thank me later.

    It's not hard for a Disc Priest to outheal a single Hunter. Stampede is laughable, they're only dangerous with full CDs up and one of those CDs got nerfed into uselessness.

    And MM won't even be competitive.

    It's not hard for a Disc Priest to outheal any class, except perhaps Unholy DK. That's hardly a knock on Hunters.

    You mean like void shift is to shadow priests?

    What double standards? If there was any legitimate complains I wouldn't mind discussing them. The OP could be unlucky and get queued up against full geared and very experienced 3v3/5v5/RBG disc priests all day at 1500 rating (which is the mmr you start at), and simply get outgeared and outclassed all day. Would that make him annoyed about the priest class? Yes! But does it mean that disc priests are way out of hand? No! Because healers are close to immortal in 1v1 and 2v2 situations, especially when the OP was playing with a shitty geared holy paladin, who apparently has close to zero experience with the healer role. He could have played against any healer in that situation and still be super annoyed.
    Don't complain about 2v2. It's been broken since season 1, and it has only become worse ever since they removed the rewards from the bracket in season 6(?).

    Yes discipline priests are strong, maybe too strong, but not outclassing other healers other than a tiny margin, and not anywhere near as strong as shamans at the beginning of Cataclysm and MoP.

    As for shadow priests. If you still feel like they are too strong, maybe you should install patch 4.3 and get back to live realms.
