Mass Dispel and Psychic Scream are the two biggest things that counter Paladins. A well timed MD causes Bubble to act more like a PvP trinket.
What OP things do Priests have? Psyfiend, Sprint/Stealth Fear, and from a Paladin's perspective - the current implementation of MD.
Psyfiend is more dumb than the actual tremor, i agree.
Sprint and Stealth are 2 good talents, but they are only "lolop" when you have both together and when you want to fear, i think having to waste 2 talent choices to be able to use one spell isnt OP, but maybe im biased.
You guy say that is easy to fear, and here i disagre, its not hard for sure, but this isnt a reliable cc, that you can use w/e is on cd, is avoidable and if the priest use sprint/stealth it will become hard to avoid if you're in a short distance and have nothing or no room to run, but it also CC the priest for the duration hes chasing you in stealth.
If you both play healer, you should know that going to the enemy side of the map is really risky, sometimes nothing will happen, sometimes you will lose a game because you chose to fear.
Well i dont want to be the god class, i just dont get you guys saying that some class need something OP because the other class has something OP, if a class need buffs, lets buff it, if a class have a OP spell and need buffs, lets nerf the OP spell and buff what is needed.
edit. if is needed, nerf priests, but dont keep a retarded spell just to "control" a class in arena, what about the other healers? warlocks? warriors?
Because psychic scream is too strong and too easy to land and it's a complete game changer. Lets flip this around a sec and pretend shamans had an AoE hex ability, then they jumped on the foums whining that "Boomkins and ferals are immune and can decurse! please nerf them!"
Once you have to work for your fears again or it's possible to stay away from a good priest who wants to land a fear then you can gut tremor. Until then i'd rather not start experiencing what holy paladins have to put up with vs hunter/disc/x comps because it's nowhere close to a fair fight.
I will finish my contribution on this thread with this quote.
