    (Priest) A needed PvP change

    I don't know if its just me, but i struggle to make a gap between myself and my attacker as Disc mostly, and shadow to a lesser extent. This usually results in not being able to get a decent heal off, or most of the time having to eat an overpower or try and fakecast a kick and a team mate going down as a result.

    My suggestion to help priests out of this problem is to change Glyph of Fade to the spell in the Shadow Tree plus a little extra i.e.

    Glyph of Fade- Your Fade spell now removes any movement impairing effects and makes you immune for the duration.

    A little hand of freedom on an identical(?) CD.
    The Shadow Tree would either have to have the spell removed or a different effect put in its place, to this im not sure, Maybe 10% more avoidance when popped? Shrug

    Thoughts?

    Much as I'd love to have that, this is just one of the challenges we face to balance out the range of abilities we do enjoy. Basically, as a priest you are more reliant on your partners to peel, with fewer direct escapes.

    aye blizzards wonderful idea of a cloth tank that can't really actually tank

    the reason this is flawed logic.

    1: if they raise the survivability they WILL nerf the healing resulting in partners going down through heals like its a joke.
    2: If they raise the ability to heal they WILL nerf the survivability of the priest resulting in priests being killed like a joke.

    There is no balance to this design concept either we are too good or too horrible this is mostly brought about because of them throwing resilience into the game. If you take away resilience from the game you can easily see how broken the priest class is in comparison with all the other healers in the game.

    Resilience creates an effect

    priests are LOL without it
    priests are very OP with it

    I think if they took resilience out of the game and balanced everyone accordingly priests might be fixed however thats not even remotely on the horizon.

    Spell "Euphoria" freeing the player from all movement impairing effects, and causeing the priest to move 30% faster , any slowing effects will only reduce movement speed to normal (like ghost wolf) Lasts 10 seconds 45 second cd.

    So everything that does damage at melee range is our hard counter? That's a whole lotta counters, more than half of the classes actually...

    So let me get this straight. You guys are having trouble in 2's. The arena comp that is not balanced and admittedly so by blizzards own dev team. So much so that you cannot receive the best rewards of arena from 2's. You feel priests should get buffed so 2's are more balanced. Even though that would mess up 3's and 5's the 2 bracket sizes that blizzard actually cares about and balances arena in.

    You should go and read Alllllll about how blizzard was unable to balance 2's and stopped trying, then balanced 3's and 5's because 2's is just not balance-able without homogenizing all the classes moves.

    If you play on a proper 3's comp, then rogues do not always = win vs you. You can complain all about the imbalances in 2's but it will never get you anywhere.
    When people say "pls" just because its shorter then "please", I feel totally justified to say "No" just because its shorter then "Yes".
