    So it must've been 4 seconds in vanilla?

    I only looked it up because I remember tremor totem often not doing anything (you ran out of the totem's range) or the fear removal was so delayed it almost didn't matter at times.
    I didn't say 0,5 sec pulse. I said 1 puls every second, which average out to a pulse goes off after 0,5 sec of fear.
    Fact (because I say so): TBC > Cata > Legion > MoP > BfA > WoD = WotLK

    Onyxia, Neff. Tremor has its benefit over fear ward but overall fear ward is more reliable to not have bosses turn into your raid. Fear CD is shorter than bloodrage and without fear ward you must have 2nd tank 2nd highest on threat list. So overall fear ward offers more DPS.

    Neff/onyxia breath/cleave/tail knockback can happen directly after fear in split second. You dont want your green/blue geared raid to be cleaved or breathed due to low hp pool.

    Playing Dwarf Priest, picking it cause I like dwarves. If I wanted the racials I'd go for human probably.

    Well they got tremor totem afterall. ;p

    i got so mad when they removed my starshards.... still play that priest , whenever i activate my account...

    I had many reasons to roll the characters I rolled, but a special (race specific) spell was never one

    I have, and always will play the race and class combo that I want to play. If I would play a priest it would be Human, and if I'm denied because of that, I don't really want to play with them anyway. Fear ward is good for only, what? BWL and Onyxia? No need to be a try hard in Classic, content will fall anyway. I will play a human warrior, and I'll happily stance dance as I did back in the days on Nef and Ony.

    Hehe I guess you'll have to learn to keep the bench warm while the dwarfs are raiding and getting all the epics. Fucking dwarfes taking all the treasure

    Right behind you
    I won't be playing anywhere near the level where racial abilities will make a significant difference. So, no.

    I'll be going for whatever I think looks/feels the best for a priest (which will probably be night elf, since we're talking about Classic here). Dwarf is my favorite race and what I'll be maining (dwarf warrior is my plan), but I think night elf is more fitting for a priest.

    If I made an alliance priest it would be a dwarf, just because I made a human in vanilla, still play her, and would want some variety and NE priest doesn't appeal to me. For horde I'm less sure which I would choose, though I lean troll.

    A number of priests in our guild are rolling dwarf for Fear Ward.
