I'm beginning to think all this is just a matter of perspective, but I'm not sure... First of all, a priest I've leveled recently as a Disc spec / Shadow offspec. Frankly, the Disc leveled amazingly well. And PvP was actually more fun in Disc than it was in Shadow for while.This all changed however once I hit about 73... ever since then in BGs, because Rogues had eventually realized they couldn't one shot me anymore (which they can do pretty much with ease in the slow level climb to max... a disturbing state of imbalance your entire leveling experience that I hope is fixed with 4.0.3a) they had changed to stun locking me once again... and that was just impossible, as usual, to beat.I think the problem with CC in WoW is that it feels crucial and necessary when you are playing the class that uses it to get a kill in... but it just feels insanely stupid for the class CC'd. Things like Sheep and Hex are awesome as they sort of present characters with options. I can take this guy out of the fight but he'll heal up and we can't do damage to him... I can take this guy out of the fight but he might run away...But then you have things like rogue chain stun or Paladin shield where they can be immune to everything AND still hurt you and it gets a bit sad. I love things like a well timed kick interrupt. that's good game mechanics, and allows someone with skill to be reactive and "counter" you... but abilities that allow you come out of stealth and beat on your target with them unable to do a single things with just a few buttons really doesn't seem very fun to ANYONE except the rogue, and it never has.When Blizzard first started talking about stunlocking being sort of "adjusted" in Cata, I was looking forward to it. I guess however they decided it would piss too many rogues off and left it in as it stands now, and that makes me sort of sad...Sure, Resto Druids and Holy Paladins always felt OP'd in Wrath BGs... but Priests never did... and yet the extensie nerf to healing ALSO effecting them in Cata sort of makes me frown and wonder if I should just switch to a Druid so I can heal when I want to but become a "rogue" in BGs with a Feral Spec at this point...

While I can't say I have done anything on the beta, currently in 4.0, I PvP as disc. If a rogue is really good, yeah, chances are he'll keep you locked until you die; but if it is a typical rogue, you should NEVER get beat. It's the bleeds and the poisons that fuck you, and that's what PS+every instant you have is for. Empowered renew will be hawt imo as disc in PvP..
