When I see the priest I have always thought a master of mind magic (mind flay, mind blast, psy horror, psy scream, etc) and and one who wields the power of the light a few things I would like to see in cata would enhance those things and I feel the priest needs and is lacking.
First I would like for all priests a psy push either the enemy u are targeting gets knocked back 15 yards or in a cone in front of the priest that knocks them back maybe like 8 yards this would be for the first one a reverse blink really same cd and all that give it a 5 yard range and 15 sec cd I have found priests don’t have a get away from me spell besides psy scream the second is just an alternative to the first for grps. Or perhaps one that causes an enemy to be suspended 10 yards in the air for 10 secs then smashed into the ground dealing a small bit of dmg
Also I would like to see holy magic doing a lot more dmg to undead things. Not a copy of pally exercise but holy fire and smite dealing substantial more dmg to undead would seem to fit as the light would be much more painful to them. It still wouldn’t be a raid worthy dmg bc we would have a hit cap of 17% to worry about and would only be undead that really hurt from it.
I would like to see holy fire dot extended to 10 seconds I would like to have it apply a 50% movement speed snare. This would give us a snare that we really need and as shadow a way to escape better. Using holy magic as shadow clearly defines us as taking a defensive stand and needing to retreat holy fire disperse and run away.
Lastly I would like to see a flight ability for all priests allowing them to fly used out of combat that would give us wings like the val’kir ladies (white, unless in shadowform then the black ones) and they could have a long quest where you would have to kill one in the end and release their soul and in turn they grant you the gift of flight (the ability to ascend towards heaven) unlike the druid I would have a cast time of 2 secs or instant cast would be fine to I guess.
Granted I have always been a fan of holy dps and will not ask for it here as bliz doesn’t want it, I have to add in an uber bs attack as I wouldn’t be me if I didn’t an apocalypse named spell that’s aoe. And channeled. Doing exponential dmg the longer it’s channeled. For like 15secs. I would give this as an ability to not all priests but to the holy priest ONLY in spirit of redemption form giving you the option to try and finish the job or heal using it would put all heal spells on a 15sec cd it would be guaranteed to hit and would never be used on bosses really bc you are healing then but like trash you could give them a boost but have that on a 8 min cd to prevent die apocalypse ss die apocalypse die brez carry on die apocalypse.
I would like to know what you all thing any comments are helpful plz no flaming but constructive criticism is welcome. Thanks
