I'm not convinced that was the idea, priests have some issues like any other class, but the grand question mark is what is priests' niche? Ghostcrawler has been trying to explain it for several months and it essentially comes down to this: they don't have one.Now, don't read that as "priests suck", it means priests are very much versatile and able to fill several roles and do it well enough to be a desirable group/raid member, be it for group healing or tank healing or damage dealing. There's been much whining because each of these roles are shared with other classes, and yes some classes perform in these roles better (that's debatable); it's been said countless times already that WotLK is all about "bring the player, not the class".However, the uproar is still there because priests are perceived as cheap replacements in each of these roles; a Disc priest doesn't do as well as a Holy paladin, a Holy priest doesn't do as well as a Resto shaman or Resto druid, and a Shadow priest doesn't do as well as a mage/warlock/Balance druid/Elemental shaman. To that I say: suck it. If you know how to play your priest, and like who you're raiding with, the bosses will still die and having a priest in the raid doesn't mean the healing or damage output isn't what it should be. It's just damage/healing meter bragging, an utter waste of time and energy.
