Holy priests and warlocks have lost all luster for me. They are the least fun classes to play. Like he says in the song. My eyes don't blink all I see are bars. I spend most of the raid not knowing what the **** is going on. In the end I went shadow and leveled and then went holy and now... I use my priest to grind SFK.. That is about all they are good for these days. They are not fun to quest with they are not fun to PVP with they are only good for raiding and farming lowbie instances. People wonder why no one wants to heal until 80? Holy -bites- for leveling and when you do heal the people who think they can tank are not tanks. If you are a blood death knight in PVP gear YOU ARE NOT A TANK. If you are a Boomkin feral gear YOU ARE NOT A TANK. If you are a Fury/arms warrior YOU ARE NOT A TANK. If you are in a five man and your priest is OOM at the end of the fight because they have to throw a constant bombardment of heals on the main tank unable to heal anyone else because the MT is taking so much damage tell that person THEY ARE NOT A TANK. People blame the priests when groups fail and people die but if we have to spend all of our time and mana keeping up the MT who is wearing dps armor and had the wrong talents what do people expect? In conclusion: When people learn to tank I'll start healing again. Until then, I'm leveling a prot pally my self.

I remember once someone LFG for stocks in SW. Someone asked if they had a tank and the reply back is "yeah, and a healer - just looking for a few to join."Okay, why not?Um...yeah. The "tank" was also the one who was putting together the run. So why did I put "tank" in quotations? Because a 'lock with a voidwalker that he sends in first is most DEFINITELY NOT a "tank".At least the healer was a priest - and he was the first one to leave, saying "you can't tank with a pet. Bye."

Before 50, Moonkin in feral gear can tank fine.Before 65 Arms/Fury can tank fine. Before 75 Shadowpriest can heal fine.I know because ive done all 3 without problems. Before 70 (and even 80) most things come down to gear, not talents.Though its true tat voidwalker sucks.

Yeah, it was at level, so a VW being the "tank"...um...yeah. Let's not go there.After four of the group died and I, the only hunter in the group, was down to nearly zero with my pet quite dead...that's when the priest up and quit, healing me on the way out, and gave his comment that you don't tank with a pet. The rest of us were right behind him except for the 'lock. He didn't come back out - I suspect he died in there and did a GY rez.Ah, memories. Bleargh!I still have that hunter - haven't played her in awhile. I might have to get back on with her and see what I can do. She's been stuck at 43 for ages!
