@ ajpallyTaken from your own post, about the role of a priest, via Blizz website."...priests can also wreak terrible vengeance on their enemies, using the powers of shadow or holy light to destroy them. They are a diverse and powerful class, highly desirable in any group, capable of fulfilling multiple roles."That was taken from your post. I will emphasize the following; "They are a diverse and powerful class, highly desireable in any group, capable of fufillnig MULTIPLE ROLES".To further expund on your idiotic and close-minded beliefs. I've grouped with all kinds of classes of different builds. As soon as one causes us to wipe I should therefore dictate that class as worthless?You also state;"If a priest is spec for shadowform, this forces a group to carry an additional healer type in the group: priest pally or druid to heal. When in a normal group that spot the shadow priest is using could be used for dps, healing and/or tanking."This doesn't force the group to carry any additional healers. Treat Shadowpriests as DPS, not healing. Whenever someone asks me to run an instance, the first thing I tell them is that I'm shadow spec. In a group dynamic, I take over the DPS role. One of the added benefits of which is still being able to heal for 20% of the damage I do, and also acting like a permanent mana-totem for the entire group.If you'd like to further argue about how priests should heal and nothing else, I would direct you to post your opinion on Nihilum and Death and Taxes guild forums. Ask them what their priests spec. Here, I'll save you the trouble. They take no less than 3, and sometimes 4 Shadowpriests to every raid. Holy/Disc priets?...Two or less.
