'We have discussed giving Shadow priests a Frost spell to use'Not a horrible idea for pvp or even just to liven up PvE a little.'Now making it easier for Shadow priests to drop Shadowform and switch to healing or even Holy damage is something that we've mentioned lately on the boards. We could reduce the mana cost or the like.'Stupid Idea yet if they're tossing it around then I guess we can expect to see ourselves becoming less like a shadow priest.I like the frost idea. The idea of shadows has always seemed like it would fit in well with a little bit of frost damage.'Dispersion is a very valuable spell -- nearly all Shadow priests take it. It's one of the best "not going to die now" spells in the game.'I think this is a very shortsighted statement. Shadow priests take dispersion in PvE because it's there. Early on in raiding you may find yourself using it, but in 25mans or just when you have better gear you'll find yourself passing on it.Dispersion also rarely works when it would be lovely to have the damage reduction. Ignis pot. frost blast on KT, etc.As far as it goes from a PvP perspective. The silence really hurts a shadow priest who isn't pressured and the snare immunity is near useless since you're just going to get resnared.I doubt I will ever like dispersion.@ possible glyph of mind flay change: Cool@ MS on MB: Stupid'Priests of all specs used to benefit a lot more from "junk" buffs and debuffs to "protect" their spells than we typically allow these days.'Yet mages still have winter's chill.Overall, I can't say I expected much, but I'm happy with my shadow priest so long as I don't PvP. I'm a little dissapointed that we're still going to remain a little lower on the dps charts, but meh. Better than getting nerfed.
