lol when it first came out it broke on damage....which is the only time i used it...it was since then changed to not break on damage...
regardless...if your a holy priest telling me its nice then im sure it would be if i was a healer trying to get away....but spending 32%of base mana +300 for a 2 second snare wasnt worth it...and how fair was a priest racial that only was applicable for 2 of the specs...these new changes will benefit everyone and balance out the few races that had op racials for priests...
Wow lol Well I made My priest Draenei just for the symbol of hope QQ right? Now I'm missing out on the recently nerfed spirit (gives spell power too), human spirit ? for a 3 Min Cd HoT? not fair. I woulda made my priest a human
Fixt, It was nerfed by 50%. You still have 1% Spell hit, I'd say a free what, 16 or 17 hit rating is preferable to maybe 30 spirit.
I love the changes. Draenei's Symbol of Hope and Undead's Devouring Plague, both on my Draenei Shadowpriest. Symbol of Hope now restores 5% mana every 2 seconds for 8 seconds, for a total of 20% mana. Much better than the 999 mana over 15 seconds. And then Devouring Plague; cooldown reduced to 30 seconds and mana cost greatly reduced.
What more can a Shadowpriest ask for? I might start playing my Priest again because of these changes.
Am I the only one who doesn't like this change? As a dwarf priest, between Chastise and Psychic Scream, (and dispell for those pesky enhance shammys), I could keep any rogue/warrior/feral druid/ or any other melee off of me.
While I do like the fact that I'm getting Symbol of Hope, never in a million years would I have traded Chastise for it.
As for desperate prayer, if I actually needed it, its because I failed at holding the melee off.
