    Life Grip

    I need to see a web comic or something showing Leap of Faith with some outrageous, ridiculous spell effects. Make it look like Death Grip or something, but with the Shackle Undead color scheme. Have like a Priest and a Death Knight gripping the same person.

    Come on, go go creativity! Let's see it!

    This is the best thing ever. I'm going to piss so many people off in groups in cataclysm. =D

    Am I the only one thinking about pulling an AFK raidmember into a fire and then run out of it myself ?
    and what if i was standing near a cliff and jumped over and while i do the jump i cast Leap of Faith on an ally and then give myself levitate? would that work? lol the possibilities

    No one is *making* you use it..hell I'll probably end up using it to pull people *into* the fires/void zones/oozes/whatever else.

    But then again I *am* pretty evil...mwhahahahahahahahaa

    Anyone else see this as a massive avenue for griefing? There's enough morons in pugs already bubbling tanks or charging mobs to try and wipe a group - but I don't want moronic priests Lifegripping me into voidholes/whirlwinds/cleaves/off cliffs while pain suppressed/levitating as well =/

    Edit: above kinda beat me to the punch.

    This. 1000 times over.

    This spell is basically a grief tool or a "Go ahead and be a retard, I have to save you" spell. Yes, it's nice in PvP, but that's about it. For PvE, it's nothing but a Save the Retard button.

    It's your choice to use such a skill, and it would be skilled of you to use it tactically, ex. people out of flooded aoe areas, or on a person that's very close to an add they have aggro on.

    I play a dk main currently, and I help tanks out by death gripping and strangulating mobs to bring them to him/her. It doesn't make tanking faceroll, it just gives my class more raid viability.

    One targets friendly, the other unfriendly, so not going to happen by design. Though it may happen in BG's / arena by coincidental timing.

    What I'm interested to see is if it works on hostile characters / mobs that are being MC'd by another priest. Also, how about on rooted characters (example scenario, could you pull a character rooted by putricide's green slime to give dps a little more time? How about pulling the tank from a mass of angry melee mobs if he's on the verge of dying to give other healers a second or two to prop him back up in health before the mobs catch back up to him?

    I'm betting that even if it doesn't in alpha / early beta, by the time it goes live (if it makes it) it will have some nominal cast time (even if it's just 0.5 seconds) to prevent it from being abused while levitating.

    Clearly, he was referring to the cataclysm class previews.

    As someone who plays pretty much every priest spec on and off (but mainly PvE Holy/Disc) I'm not really that excited about these changes. Still early days though far too early for any qq from anyone.
