Are you going to go Shadow Spec in the expansion?
omg HI HI2U
yea....i really didn't like the new talents from the getgo.
it looked like pretty much the same spells priests have now but more in mass abilities (aoe) and whatever creative ideas blizzard came up with in making the priest class more fun only came in the form of random healing spells...like the one (iforgetitsbeentoolongthenameofthespell) where heals jump to nearest target while having diminishing returns. a lot of the spells also interefered with how a guild might judge a more reflexive healer against one who isn't. the new spells tell me there is no way of telling now. more noobs dressed in t3 ftl.
shadow spec looked cool too for a while cept the part where they made you take fatal dmg for an uncertain outcome usually in a splitsecond situation and for the part where you could actually heal while in form. the latter totally veers away from what an anti-priest really is and while blizzard would like to think havnig a holy priest in raid groups would be more beneficial to guilds and furhtermore - the game, the priest class is now more enticing for players to go more or less shadow spec leaving warriors/tanks to ebay their toons.
i've not been invited to beta bc so i don't know how my opinion really supports (or doesn't) the new talents in bc. its just my take pre-release and still would have to be tested by me.
