Where's that quote from the guy that was like:

"Do i judge first for the 3% extra crit? or do i crusader strike so the cd will be up sooner" or do i divine storm first for the mini heal?"

Believe it or not I'm a nice guy with a mild mannered personality. So no, i wouldn't "choke someone", even though my 6pack abs allow me to do that

Whoever thinks shadow is stronger than disc is retarded. It's like saying balance is better than resto because it deals a lot of damage. Yeah bro.

I don't think it's easier either, disc deals far too much damage for a healer (yeah they have to play offensively bla bla we all know this shit already), so it must be easy amirite. All you have to do is shield/penance/dispel (see what I did there).

Now it's very easy to play any wizardcleave with a shadow priest (or any other caster for that matter) to the 2500s, it's all fun and games until you start to play people that knows how to beat you. I can play any class up to 2200, I guess all classes are easy.

It's annoying when the much superior spec thinks the other is overpowered because it's not pure shit anymore. My partners keep bugging me to go disc because shadow is garbage compared to it, don't be dellusional to think any disc going shadow will have more success than a shadow going disc (see: dyvith, arterian and billian), unless we're talking about the 1800s.

Shadow Priest/Mage/Resto Shaman is the best 3s comp a Priest can run right now. Individually they are equal but Shadow has better teams in my opinion.

It has it's counters, it's easily beatable, most people haven't figured it out yet.

It's definitely weaker than RMP or double healer.

And for 5s disc is much better, shadow with two healers is kinda bad and I haven't seen a good 4dps with a shadow priest besides disperse/widow's team with that huge wizardcleave, that was probably dominating their bg because the other teams didn't knew how to beat them. But I guess that's how 5s works...

I think it's more than just not knowing how to beat a team, but I guess time will tell.

You could argue the same for Prot Warriors, that people just didn't know how to beat them, couldn't you?

We're only at 2600 mmr as H RLS right now and I only play Disc in 2s, so my opinion might not matter, but I think Disc is falling behind a bit in terms of survivability. Same with Shamans, though Bloodlust sort of makes up for it.

I'd say Disc is on-par with Shadow as far as skill cap goes. I think both Priest specs also require a higher skill level than most other DPS and healers. You need to use all your abilities and cooldowns intelligently with either just to play at a decent rating, as opposed to most other classes who can get semi-high ratings by just mashing their buttons as hard as possible and RNGing a kill or binding half their keyboard to the same spell.
