The best buffs for some classes are most of the time nerf for others. I'm more in the "Nerf the OP" instead of buffing the bad one.
But it seem to that it's the opposite with this patch. Good for priests, even if it's stupid.
Next patch will be "Saved by the light debuff is reduced to 10s" and/or "Avenging Wrath CD is reduced to 1min" or something stupid like this, and paladin will be at rdruids level too.
*Tychus voice* And it's gonna be juuuust fiiine.
I think you are failing to understand what is going on. Nobody likes how priests are right now, not even priests. Sure, its braindead and overpowered like every other healer, we don't want that. I'd rather have a shield that I have to cover with debuffs that actually absorbs more than one auto attack. I'd rather be able to do some offensive dmg rather than my pathetic 10k holy fire crits. Instead I get a spammable NS that gives me a debuff to healing.
We say "its fine" because our spec went from absolute dogshit unplayable to viable. This whole game is braindead and dogshit atm, every class/spec is easy as fuck. Just look at the whole mage class compared to what it was in wrath, I feel like priests are in that same boat. Everything is dumbed down and stupid and 90% of the mechanics that made someone good at a class are gone. This expansion is a joke right now so honestly, I'm just happy disc is playable again even if is done in a retarded way.
