slight priest nerfs, completely unnecessary who was complaining about penance damage? Blizzards slow process of turning priests into paladins

The 10% dmg nerf to penance was done for PvE purposes it had nothing to do with pvp. All the current changes to disc in 5.3 are done for PvE purposes

Are you serious right now? This is actually really good for their survivability. Have you not seen how easy it is to swap to a druid with no Hots and kill him in a stun? Oh, wait that's every class lol.

jesus, there needs to be another rank of arena junkies posters. "members," "junkies," and "people who actually read before the post." I might as well be posting on the wow forums with all the 1300 backpedalers.

The current season is at a very good spot balance-wise. There is a comp variety that hasn't been seen in the game since s8.

Hmm, I'm pretty sure I read the part that says "30 second cd in PVP"; people just seem to not be able to tell sarcasm.
