- Shadowform now increases the Priest's armor by 60%
Is that a joke? Roughly 6-8% dmg decrease (assuming no armor pen ability like colossus smash or find weakness) which doesn't even affect spells, bleeds or 90% of DK damage is the compensation for losing the 15% damage reduction on shadow form? Surely there are more changes incoming, because if that's the only defensive change coming to shadow priests, then you'll never see a shadow priest in arena again.
Armor in general has been a joke since cata because pretty much every physical damage class either has armor penetration abilities or has 50% of the damage with spells/bleeds anyway.
