I have a question for you. Why does Blizzard hate priests? Seriously.OK, maybe I should ask, which designer and/or developer at Blizzard hates priests, and why? And how can we get that person replaced?I have two priests over level 70, and have also leveled hunters, death knights, mages...all more fun and rewarding than those priests. There's been plenty of documentation of how other, hybrid classes such as Paladin and Druid can be more effective healers than priests, and the recent nerf to the Holy tree just makes this even more true.Most of all though, leveling a priest is just a drag. I recently started one and even at the very lowest levels, playing a priest just plain sucks compared to other classes. This is why there's a shortage of priests - because they are no fun to play, hard and frustrating to level, and get all the blame and grief for every raid and instance that goes wrong. We used to have a horrible tank shortage, and Bliz gave us the DK, which is ridiculously fun to level and play, and an be an effective tank. So will the next hero class be the healer that's finally fun to level and play? Sorry to rant, but damn. I'm so depressed right now.
