I love my priest, I always have. I have leveled not just one priest but numerous priests. I currently have a level 80 night elf priest who is mostly shadow though is dual spec'd for holy), and currently a level 71 Blood elf Discipline priest I am working on. Nothing blizzard does, allows me to give up on the class itself. But these kind of Q&A's really really really piss me off. Seriously. Does blizzard even listen to anything priests say they're concerned about? Or is their answer to everything "oh it's fine ... deal with it???" LOLwell in theory is an awesome spell. You know who I see using it? OTHER HEALERS. Not the dps. And it's not that DPS are lazy or stupid, or they need to learn to play. It's that the way fights are designed, the mechanics of lightwell limit it's use. Dispersion IS a bloody freaking PVP spell, stop stop stop saying it's a PVE spell. IF you want it to be a PVE spell too, and not just a lackluster mana pot, we use at crappy gear levels then make the damage mitigation feature it has, actually usable on say oh i dont know BOSS FIGHTS?!?!?! Remove the damage us component of shadow word death completely. Increase the damage it does by a large amount, give it a 5 minute cool down or something so it has a 'blow your cool downs' type effect as ur getting close to enrage on a boss. Cause then our tier set bonuses might actually be worth something. If you're going to put haste on all the bloody DPS caster gear in game, then at least make haste worth it for a shadow priest. Sighs.Why do I even bother ranting or complaining? Blizzard really doesn't care. These same exact questions have been asked time and time again, and the answer is equally annoying and lame, time and time again. Hey blizzard maybe if people keep asking the same questions you should clue into the fact that it's a problem and fix it, instead of giving these BS answers all the time?

As long as you continue to pay them, apparently BS answers are good enough.I have to get into MMORPG development. It's one of the few industries where your customers will pay you to not fix things they want fixed, and just do what you want.

HOLY F*** Eisengel ive you become a game developer you game would wither and die, your suggestions are worse than GC himself.Anywho yeah freyal blizzard have been spouting the same BS about priests from tbc probably before, so do as i did rerole, after all that is how blizz decides class balance through class population not through how strong the class actually is.One thing tho, i dont like the way you think SW:D should be on a 5 min cd.... thats pretty stupid. Just make it do more damage and that will do.
