What you think?
I'm happy others also acknowledge the issue. My guild currently resorted to using Balance Druids, instead of Shadow Priests for ToC25 Hardmodes. Yes, that's right, not even bringing a single priest.
And if Ensidia is only bringing 1 along, where they brought 3 along for most Ulduar hardmodes, then I think that perfectly clarifies where we stand.
It feels hard to be a asset for ones guild, with all odds going against you. Even with multi-target on the few fights that allows it in ToC normal, I would end up at the bottom of the meter. Most experienced shadowpriests today can archive a 98%+ DoT uptime on a single target encounter, but what point is it when other classes scale so much better?
Bring the Player, not the Class, clearly failed in terms of shadowpriests. And not being the right class for progress raiding just makes raiding feel so dead to me.
From top asset at Ulduar25 Hardmodes, to worst possible class to bring in Trial of the Crusader... what's your thoughts?
