"As for the much maligned CoH--if you haven't raided very far into the TBC content you haven't gotten a chance to see what this spell can do."I'm quoting myself because I want to clarify this further. It is possible that in Kara you might not see the full utility of CoH. By the time you get to Gruul specifically, you will. In Mag, yes, more use. In SSC--absolutely. My personal experience as someone who CoHed from Kara to just shy of Kael'Thas (and I didn't pick up PMC tailoring until I was halfway through SSC, so keep in mind I was in Hallowed) is that CoH was amazing.I was limited only by my gear and the intelligence of my raid leader. Any raid leader who can stack groups to maximize the utility of buffs, auras, etc. provided by druids, hunters, shamana, and pallies can stack groups to make use of CoH priests.Before we start talking about 80% of raiding priests not ever seeing the utility of this spell, I'd like to point out that this constant use of stats about who has cleared BT again feeds that idea that the lesser geared should have everything they want--which means at upper levels of gearing and skill we all suffer from profound imbalances.Before we go this direction, how many raiding guilds are in SSC & TK? How many of the guilds currently in Kara are actual progression minded guilds (not hardcore, just interested in progression) who will actually leave Kara? I believe those stats would actually point to larger numbers of the raiding community who will see utility from CoH.As an aside--I am on a new server, and as life would have it, I need to take a break from raiding for a bit. This new server has a high population of people who might think they want to raid but they do not want to do what it takes to actually progress in the content. I can honestly say after what I've seen in some very awful groups, this game should not be dumbed down to accomodate these people zipping through any manner of content. If a priest in this category doesn't see the utility in CoH fine, they probably also don't see utility in a number of other things within their class.
