The priest class itself has issues... however I think that 2.3 will do a good job fixing them. The new 41-point talent gives priests a very very good endgame raid tool with PS - threat control and magic dps buffing combined are worth giving up increased efficiency.Priests have very specific endgame roles to fill, and like ALMOST every other class in the game they have "hybrid" functions.However no class fills the hybrid role like enh shamans and feral druids. Unless shamanistic rage is fixed an enh shaman can recover their mana and easily start healing in a pinch (better than shadowfiend, don't even go there).Feral druids are already the masters of mixing dps and healing. No other class in the game comes close to either of these because the few other classes that can both dps and heal are completely dependent on their mana to fulfil both of their functions.With one weak exception you can't really be a "switch hybrid" if you have to spend the same resource pool on both of your switch roles.Also... smite is meh. Before 2.0 smite was awesome... everyone else went up in dps and now it's just a waste of mana. Its only reasonable application is surprize burst damage in the arena or 42-yard sillyness in battlegrounds.
