How's that? Shadow Priests are bursty since when? SPriests have 2 (two) spells that hit for direct damage; MB and SWD. MB is on an, at best, 6.5 second CD (with a 1.5s cast time). SWD has a 10s CD. SWD hits for usually less than 2k on target with more than 20% health nowadays, and MB can hit around 7k. 2k per 10s and 7k per 8s (with cast time) ... is that bursty? Really?Now DvP can do a little damage on hit when talented, but you're really better off with a Mind Flay. Even so, it's maybe 1.5k and is very mana-intensive to spam.Warlocks seem to do just fine bursting down trash while I need to drop Shadowform to tab-dot SWP while running around like an idiot spamming Holy Nova if I want to do anything more than tickle the mobs (Mind Sear now does as much damage per tick as my wand). Damage over time spells aren't a great way to make a class bursty. Honestly, I have no idea what was in his head when he said that.
