So with the new proposed change to Mind Blast to give a 20% MS effect, how many disc priests are going to now spec with something like the following spec?
With this spec, You retain all the bloated-ness of the disc tree, pick up the two points from the holy tree needed to heal in pvp and now get a faster and hugely more effective (10% bigger, shorter CD and now a 20% MS effect) Mind Blast.
There seems to be no real reason to want Desperate prayer and the holy dps/soul warding areas of the Holy tree over this spec. In teams with no MS effect (Ret Pally, Locks, Moonkin, e.t.c) I see this as a huge pickup.
Lastly, do you see Blizzard moving this talent further down the tree to put it out of reach for Disc? Maybe they'll put it near Silence and make a disc/shadow spec viable again. I love the idea of this change to give priests even more offense in pvp, but I have a feeling that people will QQ premptively.
PS: I understand the QQ, it is a little OP on paper until it is tested, but i still think we should wait and see.
