I'm just tempted to delete my priest. Its not really needed in end-game at all anymore. I mean, Paladins with this gift have CoH now...we don't realistically. Druids have chain healing and can out-heal our PoM majorly. Druids greater-heal spell is equal to our greater-heal spell, etc. Druids don't have to worry about mana practically during boss fights tanks to invigorate. Nor do Paladins with their recover 20% mana passively over 10-12 seconds buff that can be used every 2 minutes. Our mana-regen spell as a priest is 12%(half a paladins basically) over 12 seconds and it requires channelling os we can't cast any spells at the same time unlike a druid/paladin and any damage interrupts it (unlike a paladin/druid). WTH is my priest good for anymore? Healing roics and thats it? Great. I have a roic-only, end-game worthless char. Such...potential... Maybe when the next expansion comes out and roics are worth running again cause I don't already have all the gear my character will be worthwhile.I'd just like to send a nice F U to blizzard for making my priest I've had for years pointless in end-game and only really useful for 5-man parties.

I'm not a priest. I do care about the effectiveness of my raid's healing corps. In my opinion, the raid healers should be choosen to minimize their number and maximize their effectiveness so that as many DPSers can be staffed as possible. The more DPS you can bring the faster the fight is over.If they took that stupid Instructor Razuvious fight out of the game I'd only staff a raid with a single priest for fort. And even then it would only be a shadow priest because their dps is reasonable.You aren't wrong, and the priest QQ hasn't gone unheard. Those of us who are picking healers for our raids know you are weak. Skill is always more important than the class though. You'd get a spot if you could pull your weight, but the deck is stacked against you. You have to be better than the other healers because your class is not strong.Healing Priests are a jack of all trades, master of none class. Shamans are now decent at tank healing, and good at AoE healing. Paladins are excellent at tank healing, and decent at raid healing when beacon is sufficient to keep the tank up (many encounters). Druids are also jack of all trades healers, but they are also masters of HoTs. A druid can heal anything, but they also bring unique heals that no other class can provide.Holy priests are meh. They bring nothing that someone else couldn't provide. They only get a spot if the player is exceptionally good.Discy priests at least bring some utility to the table that is helpful in specific encounters, but the current content doesn't require them. If loatheb was a harder fight, a discy priest would have a guaranteed spot.

After scanning through your QQing...I noticed how dumb you sound saying "roic."Was it really that hard to type in "Heroic" or do you think you sound cool because you only say half a word?

Your one of the cry babies that thinks your the only class in the game that heals. GET OVER IT.And your most definitely not in end game raiding. Our priest top charts, even after the CoH nerf. Just because your not topping charts doesn't mean your not making a difference. So stop the crying and move on; maybe you could delete your character, because all your crying and complaining must get annoying in gchat all day long.
