    Did you just say that BM isn't great in PvE? We must be playing two different games then.

    As an arms warrior I’ll beat the piss out of you still. Mind telling us what Super difficult class you play at 1500?

    Why do I suddenly have the feeling that they're just not going to nerf disc priests?

    Lots of Hotfixes coming out the past 2 weeks.
    Like every couple of days I see Blue posts. I know it's a new Expansion, but doesn't this seem like an excessive amount ?

    DESTRO LOCK NEED BUFFS

    My chaos bolt deals not enough damage bru

    Meanwhile rogues actually kill you in one stun and a half

    Nice balance lul
  1. korijenkins's Avatar
    Meanwhile Disc priest is still invincible without at least 4 people hitting one.

    I'm sick of disc priests with 70k health keeping entire teams alive and taking longer to kill than a geared holy or resto.

    I’m guessing you’re too embarrassed to tell everyone you’re a dude playing a female priest healer. I’m embarrassed for you.
