So this is somewhat inspired by the feedback thing Blizzard started, but this is what I'd like to see happen to the Shadow Priest:
-Remove our reliance on DI: I don't like losing dps because I don't have a Warlock buddy to dungeon/raid with me. It's not fun. My suggestion for this is to make Mind Flay work like Arcane Missiles, (ie not a dot) and buff its damage to compensate. This would kind of hurt our mastery, but I have an idea for that later...
-Haste buffs should not go towards dot thresholds: Haste thresholds should be only attainable with gear, in my opinion.
-Archangel should be a Shadow Mechanic, not a Discipline one: While the beginning of the Shadow Tree is kind of cluttered, I feel as if these talents are far more important to shadow than discipline. This would be a convenience thing, really, but it helps with my idea for Shadow mastery...
-Make Shadow's Mastery 'Angelic Nightmare' or (something similiar) Increases the benefit of Evangelism (by our current mastery's rate) My reasoning behind this, is that I would MUCH rather have our mastery benefit our more reliable mechanic. This would be kind of a nerf to our mastery, but if there could be a way for the mastery to benefit Archangel, without making the cd overpowered, I'd love to hear your ideas (:
(unrelated to the mastery thing, but once you get 5 stacks of Evangelism, a Shadow Orb should have a 100% chance to proc)
-When you consume a Shadow Orb, you gain 5% of your total mana: This really is a quality of life issue, but I hate having to use cooldowns to not oom. If our mana became retardedly unlimited, I would welcome a nerf to Archangel's mana return.
I would love to hear what you guys think of my ideas, or any ideas of your own. (:
