I'm not saying it is locking priests into one spell, but it does narrow the mix down. Instead of freely mixing PoH, CoH , FH, Ren etc as the situation requires, you will be narrowed down a bit. Unless the chakra bonus is very trivial, your single target heals will be pretty bad while in AOE chakra and vice versa. Instead of priests always having access to a wide range of tools at any given moment, you will have have some spells that you are supposed to use, and some you CAN use but which you will suck at. It's a bit like putting a paladin on raid healing. Yes they can do it, but in most situaions it will not be what your raid leader wants.Originally Posted by Zeuq
Some people enjoy playing a class with few choices to make at any given moment. I just imagine that those who play priest do so becuase they enjoy having more different tools available than most classes (druids perhaps excempt).
