There were some news here. Apparently we have strong heal-over-time spells. I also feel bad for the poor paladins, who are having problems running into holy resistance. That being said, I haven't had any problem with shadow resistance anywhere I can think of.Other than a dps buff, I wish they would spend some time polishing the look and feel of the shadow tree. As it is, we are just a "caster who deals shadow damage". Give us some flavor. The shadow priest could be so interesting, he is in your head, attacking your mind, confusing you and giving you head aches.There are no pretty spells at all. The dots and Mind Blast have no animation or graphics. Mind Flay is just a black line that sounds like a vacuum cleaner.Meh, the shadow tree is a quick and dirty job to give priests some basic dps. I'll heal with it and use something else for dps.

"who are having problems running into holy resistance."There is no such thing as holy resistance. Ghostcrawler was not talking about shadow resistance crippling shadow priests, he was talking about spell school lockout (which also heavily affects Ret Paladins)And don't knock the Face Melting. Mind Flay is one of the coolest spells in the game, seriously.

Ah, I get it. I misunderstood.Mind Flay is still an ugly spell though. And that horrible sound! :-p

It's not just rets. Remember, paladins are priests that put on plate mail. 90% of our damage comes from spells, holy spells in particular. No frost, no fire, no arcane, just holy. I personally play holy (light shockadin), and if I get locked out of holy spells, I'm sunk. My mace does 41 dps and I've got all of 190 strength (level 67), so not much help there. With a spell lockout, I lose my heals and my damage. I even lose my bubble (sob!)
