Wudup my fellow priest mates. I guess we are going to continue to be the support class in WOTLK. I look over some of these attempts to make our class better and in seeing some of the changes, i still cant grasp the concept of what blizz is doing to us.
First off, Dispersion......WTF is that Crap? Nice intent i believe on their behalf but mana for me has never been an issue....especially on long fights like Council and Illidan in BT. A NEW 51 point talent should be inserted, which it (dispersion) should replace Silence in the shadow tree and just give it to us as an ability. With that merge Physic Horror and imp Fear together and add a new talent there also.
Second....Our DPS. We dont get ANY love in that department being we are the lowest of all Cloth Dps classes in game. (taking into affect that maybe some ppl lack skill in certain ppl's raids isnt my fault at all.) Its just from what i see normally. In short we are never in the running on the meters anyway but it would be nice for us to be able to take pride in something other then keeping healers and casters with mana.
What i would like to see is a BUFF to shadow Form, changing it from 15% to 25% physical dmg decrease, stam and spell power increase. Its the demonic side of a priest, looks cool but needs to be fixed. VE should be a dot that ticks for moderate damage and have its threat lowered, otherwise its useless. Holy priest should get holy form in game WHich i think would be awesome. Most PVE/PVP priest just about get one or two shotted in raids/battlegrounds cause of the lack of stam they possess, So id suggest a 25% stam and spirit increase and 75+ healing to Holy form. Inner fire should have the charges removed or combine it into shadow/holy forms in some way through talent points. We dont possess an Aggro Drop ability unless you call fade that ability LOL and we damn near float the top of most raids threat meters.
No new Power Word ability? Ive waited a while with beta being out and not one thing about a new POWER WORD: spell.....SIgh.
With alot of new MMO's coming out .....(some being trash) I'd hate to see a good game go to crap over ppl not being happy with their class. I hope my priest brethen take this to heart and add some pressure to blizzards plate.
