    Priest race for PVP

    for BG and arena, which ally side race is best in terms of racials for a pvp disc priest?

    Nelf - shadowmeld (free OOC drinks?)
    Dwarf - stoneform (has chastise gone?)
    Human - passive perception, every man for himself (replaces the pvp trinket and gives an extra trinket slot?)

    which race would be best for a pvp disc priest?
    Watch me go from bad to Glad on my PVP livestream. Constructive crticism welcome!

    Each is pretty good, but I think that if I had a choice I would definately pick Night elf, even if they are sissy forest dwellers.

    Dwarves get immunity from poisons and diseases, that can mitigate a huge chunk of dk damage, and prevent rogues from slowing you to death, or doing extra damage. But as a healer you have very good means to prevent, heal, or cure those effects. So to me this isn't as good unless you plan on relying on it, but that would be fail anyway.

    Humans get a free trinket which with some of the amazing loot that ive seen could be 30% speed increase as an escape or 100 int if gemmed right. which is alot of other stat bonuses as well.

    And finally NElf, Id pick this race for the mana drinking stealth it can provide, and the cast break it gives. Its not often but if you did get a free second to drink eat in stealth it could win at least one match. But the serious killer here is stealthing when your about to get cc'd. It doesn't stall much for time, but if its a caster there gonna have to run over to break you out of it anyway, then you can use your shorter range fear to buy you even more time, for whatever.

    Any, human might be better, but night elf are deffinately trickier opponents.

    just so you know priests can't remove poisons or bleeds making it a verrrryyyy usefull tool against rogues (especialy mutilate) and arm's warriors



    and drinking or eating breaks shadowmeld (almost 100% sure)



    and all you get from being human in pvp is a wasted trinket that you only picked up for the resil

    Drinking & Eating do not break Shadowmelt.

    I got both a NE druid and priest besides my undead main

    Drinking and eating does break shadowmeld. Since it now gets you outta combat, the second you sit down to drink, it instantly breaks.

    Dwarf, hands down. Poisons are a pain in the ass, being able to remove them = win.

    So it was changed with 3.0 ?

    Re: Priest race for PVP

    it was a recent change, but if you start drinking while you are shadow melded then it breaks. Not sure if you can eat/drink, then shadow meld, that may work, but you can't shadow meld, then eat/drink.

    Re: Priest race for PVP

    I wish I could change my priest from undead to belf after they changed all the priest racials.

    wotf isn't anywhere near as useful for a priest as a 2sec silence imo.



    man alts are addicting

    Re: Priest race for PVP

    As a level 80 Shadow priest, i can confrim, you can no longer drink / eat in shadowmeld. Shadowmeld is pretty crap, the stealth rateing on it is SO LOW. Not to mention... u run behind that post, shadowmeld.. what is your enemy going to do? Follow you... and see ur pathetic shadowmeld stealth rateing and start hammering you again. It really is over-rated.
    Stoneform is FTW though.

    lol - sorry i got much love for Nezoia...but the fact that he/she is barely ever wrong i just couldnt resist


    However - shadowmeld does drop combat to be able to drink still - just not while stealthed - druids can drop combat, go cat form, drink, go stealth tho...

    Re: Priest race for PVP

    Dwarf-Stoneform makes imue too poison
    Human-still need pvp trinket
    NE-Shadowmeld as priest is not helpfull really, its the melly you struggle with and they will see you at once becouse you stand next too them and if not you going shadowmeld will just make it easy for them too get too you (unless they are 100% retarded and dident see where you were )
