The fact the target dies is not an issue....if you're AOEing a pack, there's going to be another target, just target the next mob. Having to switch targets on a spell isn't an issue, it makes you think a little more, making the game more FUN! I've been a priest main for 3 years and a Spriest for 2, and the class is awesome, but isn't the funnest thing in the world. This spell looks like it'll give me a bit more to do and involve a little more thinking, which is always a good thing!

It's an issue because it wastes a heap of mana, wastes DPS time, and it's channeled so you need to wait for it to start ticking. If your target dies, it's likely that the next one will die before it even ticks again.It isn't fun. Trust me. It's frustrating.

As a mage I can see why having your target die before you finish your spell is annoying due to the mana wasting, Only, at least you still get to do some damage with this spell, for many other aoe, the targets just have to take a few steps away and the entire spell misses. Ever have a flame strike lined up, then the tank moves?

Why all the hate for Flamestrike? If you're spec'd fire is it really that much better to use Blizzard or AE? At least the inital hit can crit and then ignite... and you don't have to channel it so you can throw in blast wave/dragon's breath or whatever else while the dot ticks.
