Mar 29th 2009 9:51PM I FINALLY GOT ON! but now i cant even switch servers ... WTF BLIZZ
Mar 8th 2009 3:44PM Kompressah, what is one change or ability that will save this class in a bg?
BRING BACK BLACK OUT.
we might have some utilities to get out of a "tight situation" but as mentioned we still are squishy and can be shut down 1 on 1, and if someone joins in against me with the other dude ... forget about it.
I understand blizz wants to get rid of ranged stuns, but .. there is simple no reason for them to toss out a HUGE part of a pvp def. for s-priests.
If they really want to try and change things up for priests and want to make Holy more interesting and desirable for pvp I have an idea. HOLY FORM. There's a shadow form ... so whats the deal why have we not seen a holy form, it only makes sence. Increased dmg and heals with some anti stuns in the mix. Bring back reflective shield, and what the hell happened to our group shield that everyone was raving about.
Pallys: shields/stuns/mana regen galore
Locks: fears/hella dots/pets/ self hp regen/self mana regen
Hunters: ... dont even get me started .... (still pissed about arcane shot dispelling)
DK: actually ... i own dks ... as long as i can stay the hell away from them
Rogue: the usual stuns and hella dps (thers no reason i should be killed just cuz im fighting a rogue)
War: fear/spell reflect/decent dps/ intercept .. but again if i can stay away from them and within ranged combat im fine
shammys: meh totems ftw
Mages: blink/frost fire/counter spell/ bubbles/ dampen magic/ a pet/etc.
... need i go on?
bascially when It comes down to it, all of those classes have ALOT of ways to survive, not including the #1, most of them ARNT SQUISHY (minus mages)
Why do i care about increased dot dmg ... I have three dots, one is useless and the other two are decent, but two dots criting more is not gunna put me back on the dps charts with the nerf (in my opinion) to shadow form.
so what do priests have?
shield (if you dont have this up all the time as a priest in pvp then ur a moron, and even then if you do have it up, its gone in about 3 seconds when your being hit and it doest offer any stun resis.
fear: someone laid this one out b4, 30 sec CD is garbage
silence: yea this is good, and usually can let me get my killing blows (now, not in 3.1) but too often is it resisted or I dont even use cuz a hunter and rogue are pwning me
dispersion: this i use all the time as my oh sh*t button. and it looks like that will serve the purpose even more in 3.1, but ... why am i wasting it as an oh sh*t when the real purpose of it is to get mana back. If it saved me from not dying right now, but im OOM in about 10 sec. later cuz I'm still in combat ... now what ... you guessed it DEAD
fade/imp shadow form: wase of a talent spec imo, id rather take sp and all that jazz than to get out of a stun (i know that might seem a little cliche since i am bs-ing about stuns BUT if i HAVE to spec for this then .. its really not an option .. its a necesity ... i want spell or passive buff that will do this instead of wasting my points in disc. to increase my innerfire/shield/mana cost reductions.
psyc. horror - ... i have to play with it .. not sure if its actually going to be worth it.
thus .. the whole damn class just needs a major overhall imo ... and that's not some QQ crap you hear on the forums, even non priest players will agreed that either A) there's rarely ever a priest seen or used, esp in pvp. B) we get pwnd super easy unless your in super epic gear C) there is nothing that makes a priest a priest (aside from holy priests) theres nothing that make us feared or that people QQ about US being too cool.
... what does that say?
oh yea ... what happens when spirit nerf hits, will I even be able to fight for more than 15 seconds and then pop out of form to heal myself or someone else? (my guess it not quite since my mana regen is going to be trash)
Feb 24th 2009 5:54AM NOT DISAPPOINTED!?!? are you kidding me? Theres like two things that are kinda cool that they did for us, otherwise we got a swift kick in the yatch. REMOVE BLACKOUT?! I'm and big pvper and pve-r, when the proc is allowed on trash etc. its usefull as hell, and its the ONLY "chance" of actually killing someone if ur a shadow priest. There's too many outs for other classes to get away from you or shut you down. On top of that, how the heck can you say that the shadow form change is that great. YAY I CAN CRIT ON DOTS ... wait .. does that really matter considering I only have two of them? Id rather hit for an extra couple hundred damage stacked onto my crit for my mindblast sw:death combo than have dots criting like crazy. (ps, bring back shorter sw:d CD)
yes shadow fiend is ok, but if im not mistaken it looks like its nerfed to? reduced speed to player speed? is that my player speed or the pally/dk thats running away from me?
Dispersion is really the only good change i can see here, even from looking at some of the holy/disc changes.
really disappointed, though they might have SLIGHTLY helped out pve shadow priests, There's really no reason to play one anymore with the current changes. Might as well roll a lock... we cant mana battery, and our ve is helping ... kinda ... if you look at it like it was a mini totem. What does this make my current role as a shadow priest? Cast 4 spells in sequence and occasionally shield people that the healers cant get to ...
gg blizz >
Feb 24th 2009 5:39AM ... all u guys can talk about is holy/disc? SHADOW JUST GOT PWND NERFED. Removal of black out? nerf shadowform? WTF IS GOING ON?!?!
Dec 27th 2008 1:35AM AYE, AYE, AYE, AYE, TABLE 5, TABLE 5! TABLE FIIIIIIIIIVEEEEEE!
Nov 24th 2008 1:44PM this howl thing is garbage. The editing needs the be much better, not to mention cut scenes shouldn't take that long and the lack of actual audio dialog is basically sad. It has potential, but needs quite a bit of work.
... subtitles mixed with in game audio emotes .... really? If you don't want to put in any dialog there are much more effective ways of story telling.
