Y'know, it seems like they could solve the letdown pretty simply, but giving us an "orb counter" under our nameplate (ooh, I have 3 orbs!) and then making said orbs go blasting at our target when we cast Mind Blast. After all, so many of our spell casts (DoTs and Mind Blast, even SW:D sometimes) get lost, and we're just little shadows in the background who occasionally put a leash on the baddies. It'd be nice to have a visual effect to compare to all the fireballs and arrows flying around. Having the three hovering orbs go ZOOM-BAM at the mob would be a nice touch to make us happy.I still think they should let us glyph them to ravens. "Attack, my little friends... ATTACK!"

I concur, glyphing to ravens would be awesome!

Yes, ravens need to happen. I think it was in one of the Twitter Q&As, they answered a question about whether spriests would get ravens, and the response seemed to be mainly confusion on their part: "Um, a nice idea I guess, but what do ravens have to do with spriests?" (I'm paraphrasing.)Raven Priests, you fools! One of the most eye-catching mobs implemented in Wrath, they walk around in Shadowform, surrounded by Shadow Ravens. They're awesome! Who wouldn't want that for their spriest?

I totally agree, alpha 5099. There was a thread on the Suggestions forum for a while about it, and everyone posting seemed in support of the decision, but I think it faded into the background.I'm still holding out hope.

Every single time I saw one of those raven priest mobs it made me yearn for it on my shadow priest. I can't believe they expressed confusion when it was mentioned in the Twitter Q&A. The raven priests even had a kind of heal spell called raven heal that would be an awesome visual effect to add to vampiric embrace or something. How does the raven priest NOT fit the spriest model, I ask you? Glyphing to turn the orbs into ravens is a lovely idea as well. *sigh*Blizz, make it happen!
