Yes?I have a raid group for ten mans that has no shadow priest - all our priests are needed for healing. We have a paladin - who cannot be ret as they are needed as a tank. We sometimes have a shaman who can drop a mana totem, sometimes. Our hunters aren't a regular contribution to the team either.We are very melee heavy. Death Knights, Warriors. Overall, we are lucky to have three ranged dps. Replenishment is always something the healers are desperately craving on fights because we have no mana return and our group is very new to raiding and are a bit low on DPS still - meaning long fights.We went up against the first boss in construct and it took us three attempts to get him down simply because the healers were OOM. One of them went and respecced to a holy priest crit build so she could have a lot of free heals and it made a humongous difference.Without being able to use more than one mana potion per fight, and with the decreased mana regen outside of casting, the removal of a mana regeneration skill for priests - we are going to be BONED by the lack of replenishment and it really, really irritates me that our progression is going to be ground down by that.We aren't hardcore raiders - we just dabble - but the idea of homogenizing skills and abilities was to make it easier for the 'casuals'. Well - it's made it harder for us.
