I dislike this change, because the priest racial spells reflected the cultural differences between races. The weapon-centric classes didn't need unique abilities because stabbing or shooting is pretty much the same. Meanwhile warlocks, mages, druids, and shamans of different races use the same or similar power sources (elemental spirits, arcane forces, etc.). On the other hand, priests acquire their powers from very different deities and powers, and the differences occur along racial lines. Of course, for game balance, a Forsaken priest and a troll priest need to have the same capabilities, but the priest racials were a nice bit of "flavour" that reflected the significance of the Holy Light or Elune or loa or whoever.

The problem is that the racials made it so a forsaken priest and a troll priest DID NOT have the same capabilities. If you ever played alliance side in end-game vanilla wow raiding you'd realize just how damaging the racials were to player enjoyment. That sort of min-maxing is gladly a thing of the past.
