TL/DR: How is Priest as a class?
I've been away from WoW for a while due to a multitude of reason, but the customer service of Blizzard's way of dealing with a matter was what pushed me over the edge to say I would never come back.... But I have a couple of friends who are pressuring me to come back and play. So my question is this, what is the current state of the priest class? I raided as a shadow priest in cata and I actually enjoyed it a fair bit, and found that I didn't enjoy it as much in MoP, which probably also led to part of the reason I unsubbed. Basically when I was playing I found that spriests had become less valuable to the raid group because they didn't offer the off heals that some groups utilized; or that I couldn't really burst like I could in cata(mainly during dragon soul). I know I can look at the dps guide for an idea of what the class has become, but is it fun to play? I don't want a rotation built purely around dot management, I liked having other uses to my raid other than strong sustain dps. But I really loved playing disc in PvP scenarios, but never got in with a group who I wanted to do anything serious with. So for PvE is spriest fun/viable? And how is disc PvP atm?
Basically if you tell me that they aren't good then I'm just going to not consider subbing until I look at xpac content.
