They can change the 2 set to increase penance healing but it actually wont solve any problems. U cant instantly recover ur teamates once u leave CC. Meanwhile paladin druids and shamans all have a way.
I swear to god if anyone says "just press SG!"........................
ill give an example
stormbolt, mage is at 50%, u come out of CC, shield (purged), SG SG, mage remains at 50%. GL topping him with a 30% healing debuff.
dont be stupid you can spam saving grace idiot nothing prevents u from pressing it 10 times in a row
There are way too many problems with priests (does not help that other classes are OP either)
The only time priests are top tier is when their spells are bugged (holy priest not affect by battle fatigue, disc priest shields critting 2x instead of 1.5)
Blizzard takes away priest utility or dont give them new ones while making them the least output healer in PvP. Just accept the situation. Priest is a hard healer to balance because blizzard keeps wanting to nerf shield in PvE while disc is based on absorbs.
please just nerf the shit out of / revamp mages so it atleast feels good to beat people when you play.
a mage used to be a class which felt rewarding to play versus because there was a lot of room to outplay them (positioning, monitoring procs to avoid CC, mass dispelling ice blocks instantly etc).
i get so sad if i see a healer trying the best he can to avoid getting deeped, 95% of the time it's my fault if i don't get the deep sheep/rof/jaw because blink + blazing speed is stupid and i can cross the map in 2 seconds, block offensively to have aura mastery whle sheeping and still feel safe during the entire hypothermia. something is very weird with the class design but polymorph is not the issue, mages having too strong defensives and way too strong synergy with certain classes (shatterplay for example) coupled with way too much on demand damage (just remove icicles and ice nova, it's not fitting imo).
it used to feel rewarding to setup a situation where you got cc on two targets and locked down the third to force a 3v1, nowadays i just feel like we won undeservingly. i still have a lot of fun with the game, but not in the same way as i used to
