Dark Mend HOOOOOOOOOOO!
I'm also hoping we get 3 heals. Flash Heal, Heal and Greater Heal. Give us a 1.5, 2 and 2.5 second heal for different purposes. The lack of a 2 second heal with higher throughput is what killed Disc as a tank healer and hopefully they fix it. Hopefully also change Borrowed Time so that you get 25% haste for the next spell cast, but also +10% haste for the next 20 seconds after a shield.
My guess is that our new nuke will actually end up being our new filler, with some kind of synergetic effect between it and Mindflay similar, but not exactly, like an Arcane Mage has with it's Arcane Blast and Arcane Missile.Originally Posted by Danner
My first thought is something along the lines of this (names are just filler names):
Dark Smite: 2.5 second cast time, reduced to 2.0 seconds through talents. No cool down.
- The Priests strikes his target with tainted light, dealing X shadow damage to the target.
Shadow Power: Each time your Mind Flay deals damage, there is a 33/66/100% chance to gain the Shadow Power effect. Shadow Power increases the damage dealt by your next Dark Smite by 10%. Stacks up to 6 times.
or, if you prefer a proc-based system with a little bit of RNG:
Shadow Power: Each time your Mind Flay deals damage, there is a 10/20/30% chance to gain the Shadow Power effect. Shadow Power increases the damage dealt by your next Dark Smite by 20%. Stacks up to 3 times.
With these spells, We'd still use Mind Flay as our main filler, but when we get six (or three for the second option) stacks of Shadow Power, we'd want to immediately use it on Dark Smite as, with the full buff, it would be our highest damage dealing ability excluding DoTs.
Mind Shred: Each time you cast Dark Smite, you have a 20% chance to gain the Mind Shred effect. While under the effects of Mind Shred, the channel duration, period, and global cool down triggered by your next three Mind Flays are reduced by 50%.
This would essentially be a Missile Barrage/Backdraft hybrid talent.
Another option we could see that doesn't have to do with our new nuke we may or may not get would be to greatly increase the damage potential for Shadow Word: Death and have a talent that would be similar to Backdraft after using it.
EDIT = Modified formatting.
Seen how the 4pc Tier 10 bonus played out, maybe the new nuke will replace Mind Blast instead of Mind Flay, of course, we might not abandon MB completely, but perhaps only use it every 15 seconds or so to trigger Replenish in pve and used as a fast nuke in pvp.
I rather want Replenishment to occur inside base rotation instead of it to appear when I use a spell that makes low damage.Originally Posted by Xel
Just throwing this out there...... Just a random thought.
I don't think they ever specifically said we'd be getting a new spell. They just said that we'd be getting a no-cooldown, spammable nuke.
Maybe they're revamping Mind Blast? Increasing it's damage and cast time and coefficients and whatnot to resemble other similar nukes from other caster classes. The current talent to reduce it's cooldown could become a talent to reduce it's cast from 3 or 2.5 seconds to 2.5 or 2 seconds.
Boring, I know, I'm just saying, that THAT might be the special Shadow nuke they're thinking about.
give something to tap 3-4 ticks of dot(s) at once...gief some burst!
i realy hope we get a good shadow ability with a big cooldown ( i am realy sad when ppl say ''pop your cooldowns'' and i do the same rotation :| )
Lightwell! It's gewd!
I'd love talented combat res.
You see, there's this thing called "aggro". It's a very complicated, very technical roleplaying expression.
Loosely translated, it means "the priest dies".
I expected it to be launched now. :S
While we're waiting, more speculation:
- A new armor buff. Inner Fire (gives armor and spellpower) vs Inner Peace (gives spell resistance and spirit). One can be active at a time.
- Serendipity reworked slightly. My guess it will only be consuming one charge.
- Holy PVP talent: crit heals can reduce healing reduction. Or at least something making holy more PVPish.
- Something breaking the Prayer of Healing group heal mechanics.
Non-discipline since 2006. Also: fails.
Give me my changes ??? ......About a different armor sure! that would flavor a bit the armors for priest (as warlocks and mages have two viable armors).I see you like the concept of holy pvp but sadly it will still remain a dream.Anyway back on topic something with magicresistance/chance to reflect a spell (whole spell) would be funny.
Ya, the more I think about it, the more I think (and hope) they will do a major rework of Mind blast and SW. Both are already very low priority and with current gear scaling, both will soon be entirely useless in their current form.

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.
I'm pretty confident the 'shadow nuke' will be a talent like:
"You can cast smite and holy fire while in shadowform. They are still holy spells, but they get +100% crit damage and benefit from talents as if they were shadow spells"
THE END IS COMING, ALL OF US ARE GOING TO DIE....THEY WON'T CHANGE LIGHTWELL
Ahem, I mean some changes are going to made that will piss a lot of people off and I'm sure Kelesti and I will need to pop Power Infusion to stay on top of the "OMG" thread.
I want Power Word: Barrier and a new Lightwell. I want....nothing amazing for Shadow so I don't hate being a dual-healer spec. I want moar more.
I heal in the Arena

That's what i think too. The only 2 things i want to know right now:Originally Posted by Ultima
Shadow Priest Mastery and Lightwell.
There are two possibility:
a) Lightwell is untouched
b) In memory of Eyonix, the guy who brought Lightwell to us, it gets moved to the Blizzard Hall of Fame for Spells!
