Manaburn for priests was a retarded ability anyway, it was pretty much useless in 3s and 2s doesnt really count:D Maybe it was fun for priests to play around with in 2s but it was everything but fun for every other team. Atleast now you dont have to face disc/mage in 2s when you are trying to cap points and they are turtling around for 20 minutes waiting til the other team is OOM before they even tryed to do damage...
That manaburn is out the game is a good thing, god I hated those "manaburn cleave" teams (disc/double lock) and (disc, lock, hunter)
.... I spammed mana burn playing RMP. During openers especially, but even throughout the game. It forced teams to interrupt my shadow tree or stop casting to LOS. Won countless games because of mana burn. It was one of the only things that made up for priests having absolute dogshit mana in comparison to every other healer in the game during wrath.
Fast forward to wrath, priests still have the worst mana. Only now they also have the worst damage and burst healing of any class. Priests have psyfiend and fear, every other class has at least 2 cc's of their own. Even paladin's basically have a sheep now, I lol'd at the idiot complaining about pally offensive play. You can actually cc someone for 15+ seconds by yourself.
