- Good DMG
- Off heals
- Life swap
Blizzard nerfed ret palas and SP dispels in cata cuz it was too good. Let's face it, with the current state of shadow priests, they shouldn't be able MD cc. If a hunter coordinates scatter traps with his partner timing a cc on other 2 partners, instead of getting rewarded the trap just get mass dispelled... Pala casting repentance on a druid, druid didn't shapeshift he suck he deserve to be cc'd. JK gets mass dispelled.. Let's say a Mage wanna deep the healer to force a trinket or a cd, or get a kill. JK MD saving the healer cds, buying him time to get his trinket back up.
Honestly where is the skill in this if you are not getting rewarded when you cc something? Some might argue that it cost a lot of mana? You still can pull off at least 3 MDs in a match if not more, not to mention pet and disperse.
Having life swap to prevent kills is good enough.. Not to mention offheals and grips, offensive dispel.. and defensive dispel?
SP shouldn't be able to use MD defensively. Nerfing this is nothing compared to the nerfs other casters got and SP will still be good instead of "too good".
