The fact that a mortal strike exists, means that Blizzard has to balance healing around it. If you don't have that mortal strike in your team, you will always be second rate. If Blizzard would just remove Mortal Strike from every class that has one and actually fix the problem, healing, then they can shove their 3's CC stacking teams down my throat.
I decided that I should do a tally of the teams that I fought over these past two weeks, just so I had hard proof in front of me so I could believe it myself.
Out of my 225 3's games:
~60% had a Rogue
~40% had a Mage
~70% had a Priest (Disc)
I am no fool;Blizzard, or Blizzard's owner Vivendi, has an agenda that they want to follow. They want to make money and they have all the right to make this game as unplayable as they can for me if they make more money pleasing someone else.
I fought more of Rogues, Mages, and Priests than I did of all other classes combined. Better put #Rogues>Sum of all other classes. #Priests>Sum of all other classes etc.
OT: Dragon Age: Origins looks amazing
Since this is in the paladin forums I have to make a point: ~5% of the teams I faced had a Ret paladin in them. Probably because we are so OP.
