A blue commented that the priests were still heavily in development, so dev plague being left out might still be an oversight. I know I will be annoyed if its ends up getting cut, simply because shadow priests don't exactly have a ton of spells to cast as it is, and I enjoy more complex rotations, not less. Before they allowed all priests to be able to use dev plague, the rotation stayed interesting because you still had to refresh swp and you used SWD on CD (I'm talking BC days here). Now that pain is casted and forgotten about and SWD is actually being used as an execute (I know some use it for mana regen at lower ilevels) I wonder how simplistic the rotation is going to get without at least two dots to watch. I remember they were talking about working with the orb mechanic more at Blizzcon so maybe there's going to be more going on there and we just don't know it yet, but right now I just feel it's time for me to start the usual spriest pre-expansion nail biting all over again. At least this time, hopefully, there will be enough of us to howl for attention so something gets done. Maybe I should get some polish on these before March rolls around...I'm still bummed that they are taking away so many healing spells, too. I thought that Mists was supposed to make everyone more hybrid.. y, not less. I don't even know..

"I enjoy more complex rotations, not less."I was going to talk about this in my own comment, but it was already getting long and rambly. For most boss fights, I basically lay down my DoTs, then repeat Mind Blast-Mind Flay until one of them needs refreshing. Since SW:Pain refreshes automatically, that's just three timers to watch (Devouring Plague, Vampiric Touch, and the Mind Blast cooldown). Rarely do I need to think on the fly, and I enjoy having to do that.
