Greetings, I play Shadow priests since the beginning, and now I'm thinking it's better eliminate this class: we are the weakest DPS class(when Shadow) and now, the low-average healer in the game(overtaked from Druids, Paladins and Shamans-and maybe DKs).I'm very frustrated from that.The coders must get the decision or revamp the class or eliminate it.Silenzio76PS. Sorry if my English sucks.

And priests are definitely not the weakest healers. We'll see where everyone's at in 4.2, with the changes to healer crit and the druid mastery, but as it stands now priests in general aren't in a bad place, imo.

@k4lima: You must have a full 372 ilevel gear.@Saeadame: we have the lower mana pool in holy spec, and 2 cd to rec in combat(Divine Hymn-8min- and Shadowfiend-5min-)

I'm assuming by Divine Hymn you mean Hymn of Hope, which has an 6 minute cooldown, not 8.If you are smart enough to combine the use of your Shadowfiend (or another regen cooldown such as the owl jewelcrafting trinket) with Hymn of Hope, which increases your mana pool so you get more mana out of every tick, you should not run oom faster than any other healer.I personnally am not decked in epics (my healing gear is probably around ilevel 347), and I perform every bit as well as my druid and paladin co-healers. I actually am able to help out quite a lot on the tanks, while still holding the raid.Although I do not play Discipline, I heard some complaints about the current state of the spec. So I'll give you that.But I have played Holy and Shadow for quite some time now and I am very happy with both.
