    Exactly. I already rerolled to fury war, doing way more damage with way less effort, while having tons more fun. All for the low price of being able to literally faceroll through any solo content and offspec as tank instead of healer no one would take to m+ anyway.

    No more priest nerfs needed.

    The shadowpriest community allready lost most of its famous members long before LEGION's StM-shittshow because of the warlock favouritism from the DEVs. If you dont really WANT the hybrid part of the class for fun, there is no point in playing it, since its a dead class for the DEVs.

    Just curious, why do you capitalize random words?

    Now you should try arms as, according to Method, they are better.
    VOTING IS MOB RULE AND MOB RULE IS MEDIA RULE AND
    MEDIA RULE IS CORPORATE RULE

    For now, raids. It will likely end up simming higher in m+ as well.

    Well I don't know what you will see if they patched it, and it wasn't in the notes, when servers come up, but if you have Lucid minor and simply cast ice lance at a target, you will eventually get a LD proc.

    You will see the icicle over your head, see the versatility buff in your buff bar, but the actual "Icicles" buff will not increment. This is not just a visual loss, but a dps loss from the value of the LD proc.

    If you are casting during an encounter, this can lead to having 5 icicles over your head and maybe 2 to 3 stack on your Icicles buff, and still short for Glacial Spike. Sure, you could track just the icicles buff in a WeakAura, and ignore the visual on your character, but it doesn't fix the actual dps loss. Moving from LD to, for me anyway, the next best minor not already in use, like Blood of the Enemy is a 2.8% dps loss.

    My belt was dealing 2.5% of my health at echoing void, now it's 2%. I didn't see this type of nerf mentioned?

    The Spirit Drinker fix didn't work that well, yes?
