    VE Changes

    Vampiric Embrace: This ability is now provides a 30-minute buff that cannot be dispelled, instead of a target debuff

    (from the front page)


    think about this.
    how is this NOT overpowered?

    How is Siffon Life and Haunt/Life Drain not overpowered??? I have an 80 S Priest, and a 65 Afro Lock, and I think all the Affliction abilities are pretty OP once you have Haunt. Its just you will get HP for 3 dot opposed to 1 for warlocks, but they get way more out of life drain and haunt. so it s kind of just situationally different. S Priests will get a constant stream of health, while warlocks get nice chunks in spurts, which is nice becasue they actually need to be gaining health to life tap for mana. Its a game breaking mechanic for Warlocks, and its a PvP buff for S Priests. Its not really that op either, becasue most classes can dispel every single priest dot which renders the a large portion of the health gain useless. It also helps battle MS effects and let you actually drop shadow and heal while getting some health back to combat knock back.

    There's another post about the VE changes on the front page of this forum, why not post in there?
    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.

    The only OPness I see is saving us a gcd in combat.

    I pity locks tho, they'll still have to waste a gcd to apply.....oh wait.

    I have an 80 SPriest and I look at it this way. Its one less them to apply on the boss at the start and we can start with other spells first. Secondly on trash you wouldn't have to apply it to every mob (not that you would anyways) so its like a bonus. All in all its nothing different than what you could be doing already except not having to waste a GCD. Perhaps its Blizzard attempt at saying if we remove one GCD maybe their dps will go up? lol

    I think i'm the only one so far that hates this. I rarely use this and it is still an agro whore. With all of the "buffs" that weren't really needed, this will put me in danger on just about every encounter... again.

    If you seriosly have aggro problems, tell your tanks to l2p. If that doesnt help, just dont use the spell ._.

    Considering how little VE actually heals, I don't really see the problem.

    Well, it is a good self-heal that we no longer need to apply, so I'm happy.

    I guess they'll change the way it work, or it can be abused with Mind Sear one way or another.

    Meh, how often apart from soloing would you need that much self-healing while AoEing? Hardly gamebreaking.
