    All they did is increase the cooldown of your Penance by 2 seconds. More time to cast skilled spells now. Yay =D

    In 3.2 it will be shaman.

    Right now, it is probably a paladin, at least when it comes to keeping the tank up.

    Well with regards to PVP, I play a discipline priest and I'm somewhat mediocre rated (2015), my character name is Edizio on Neptulon and is an alt. He's the only character I play with and I find that damage in arena right now is extremely potent. Even with pennance on no cooldown, it's possible for me to be burst down extremely fast.

    The new change to resillience with my current gearset will reduce all damage taken by 25.47% as well as reduce the damage from critical strikes by a further 25.47%. With this being said, I think that penance would probably be too good and would be quite boring. The new change is going to allow me to use other spells as well as penance.

    Under no circumstances am I saying that changing penance to a 12 second cooldown right now in the game (live) is reasonable, however with a 25.47% in overall damage reduction, I think that it is needed.

    Learn to read patchnotes, Blizz gave a explenation why its needed, how it was needed to be done, and what it effects next season.

    Where is best healing class?
    oh that sounds fair
    priests should be best healing class, whilst all others are moot amirite?

    Holy Priests for the most part will remain unchanged and seems like they should still be the best choice for raid healing. The Penance nerf makes it less OP, but it's still really good.

    I don't know much about PvP, but boredat2am's post seemed to sum up how the changes will affect that.

    Also, PW: Barrier was nix'd a long time ago. They said they would possibly implement it in the future, but that it needed a lot of work.

    "Priests are the masters of healing and preservation[.]" "They are a diverse and powerful class, highly desirable in any group, capable of fulfilling multiple roles." --Official WoW Priest Description

    funny how one can complain about the most represented class in arena, thats also the most versatible healer, and still shared best tankhealer in disc
    if u have the brains to do that offc.
    Are you quoting the top100 2v2s? Cause thats a good representation of the millions who play WoW.

    What are changes that have no correlation to PvE, but greatly effect PvE play regardless?

    Bring the player not the class?

    I've seen priests on top, I've seen priests on the bottom. Does this make them the best/worst healing class? No.

    It's all situational. When will you learn?

    The PoH nerf was bigger. 30% less coefficient assuming 2500 SP = 750 less healing * 5 = 3750 healing nerf. And it only increases with the more SP you have.

    I'm in a holy spec 90% of the time im raiding. The change to PoH doesn't really tick me off. Developers thought the spell healed too much, or would scale to much for future encounters. I get it, and I'll adjust accordingly.

    However, this Penance nerf is completely based on the never resting micro-management of 2v2 PvP Arenas. No where in their explanations was mention that a 6.4sec CD vs a 8sec CD was making content trival in PvE. Furthermore, the implementation of the nerf is clunky. The same 8sec CD can be accomplished by removing/changing the glyph rather than tinkering with the base CD. The change just feels meddlesome rather than balancing.

    They already said Barrier isn't coming. You just got buffed in survival, but yes Penance was nerfed. But now people better start speccing into Inspiration too. -11% damage from resilience and -10% physical damage on crits = congrats you've just found yourself less squishy. While I'll admit 2 seconds may seem like alot I think everyone will be ok. It probably hurts more than Druids or Paladins, but that happens.

    Re: Why still nerfing priest

    Priests seem more annoyed by the way Blizzard nerfed Penance rather than the nerf itself. As stated by SpiritusVex, they could have just changed the glyph of Penance to something else, instead of increasing the cooldown on the spell itself and forcing every Discipline priest to take this glyph.
    I shall die here. Every inch of me shall perish. Every inch, but one. An inch. It is small and it is fragile and it is the only thing in the world worth having. We must never lose it or give it away. We must never let them take it from us.

    Correct! Too bad that wasn't the daily double.
