AlmtyBob, that's a great tank response, I like it.When I'm on my Discipline Priest I like that style just as much as you do on your Warrior tank! With around 1100 Intellect and over 22K mana when instance-buffed, I regen so fast I almost never need to drink. And as an Herbalist and Alchemist I'll just pop a potion if I fall behind at all, hardly costs anything and the effect is extra due to the profession.Yeah, on my heal spec I'm totally with you. As Holy I used to hate that and even had to break up groups over it, but that was months and many iLvls of gear ago.My complaint is really from my Shadow Priest. I still can't blame you for wanting to have fun in otherwise boring old instances. So what I'm really saying is it's hard to have fun on a Shadow Priest in an overgeared group for a 5-man now. There is no time to set up the combination of casts that get Mana Regen going, so one of the #1 classes for regen, ironically, goes OOM just running in and using our AOE, and our Recount numbers meanwhile are at least 40% down from our best because we don't get a chance to get all the multi-DOTs on the mobs that used to have the potential to put us in the #1 or #2 slot depending on the instance and how much trash vs. Boss action.Shadow priesting has always had its little problems, like all classes and specs. No big deal, just one of the many ways the game can be played. Not everything has to be balanced for everybody in every situation. It's just that having one of your favorite classes/specs turn out to be practically useless and no fun outside of long boring raids is a little more of a bummer than some of the other little problems that some specs have.
