Unintentional double pun. I'll take my trophy whenever.

Welcome to the latest Power Word: Discussion thread! In an attempt to keep threads from being deleted, we've been following in the footsteps of the Sentry Totem and Mangle: Bear (for those who don't know, http://us.battle.net/wow/en/forum/topic/969937219#3 explains what I'm talking about) and making one thread that will last until cap.

The archive for the Power Word: Threads is here: http://us.battle.net/wow/en/forum/topic/3123313812

To keep this thread from being locked or deleted, here are a few basic guidelines:

1. Everyone is welcome. Newbies, oldbies, lowbies, mains, alts, bank alts, non-priest alts. Everyone. As long as you're here to join a priest-based discussion, you're welcome.

2. Keep it civil, if not friendly. If you can't manage that, please stay out of the thread. We don't need or want drama. If you just got out of a heated discussion with someone, leave it at the door. Along the same vein, avoid badmouthing others in this thread.

3. This is as much priests talking to priests as it is priests talking about priests. I firmly believe our community is one of, if not the most welcoming on the forums. I'd like to learn more about the community on an individual level because of this. Both the Mangle: Bear and Sentry Totem series derail after the first few pages of each thread; I think this is fine.

4. Don't feed the trolls. If people make threads to complain about our discussion thread, just ignore them. If you must post, make a reasonable post explaining the benefits of community threads and leave it at that. Otherwise, we gain nothing and just make ourselves look bad to the moderators.

5. Can't get enough of the Priest community? Join us on IRC or in Vent!

Discussion Topic:
What are we as a class? Thematically and everything else. Cause in "teh lore" priests are a pretty dynamic class and differ greatly on a race by race basis. But the art team (in my opinion) seems to be really hung up on the word "priest" and the trappings of real life priest. They don't (again, in my opinion) seem to go at priest sets with the same gusto as our brothers and sisters on the Light; paladins, or the dark warlocks.

So what is a priest? What is our identity?
Sorry, we already gave away the trophy to the priest who made "Another Tsilyi Flay on Words".

You need a triple pun to win, now.

Also, 40 yard atonement.../swoon
Truelight and I were talking (see: I was ranting and screaming in /g and he was sitting there giggling) about priests and stuff. And I'm curious as to what others think. What are we as a class?

Hahaha. That's wonderful. Touche, indeed.

Though you could have gone "Another Tsilyi Flay on Power Words"

Shut up you ugly cow, you're a disgrace to the Horde. Might as well be an amputated blood elf hunter named Illidanolas
at least i'm playing an original vanilla race, if not one that was originally able to be a priest.

better to be a disgrace to the horde and still be able to help the cause than be a traitor, forsaken.

I think of it as that Paladins use the Light to enhance their abilities, while Priests kind of more directly wield it. They could emphasize that a lot more when it comes to armor sets - the Light is to Priests as the elements are to Shamans.

Discussion Topic: 5.1 or something.

There should really be more effort put into discussion topics than this.
40 yard atonement, YAY. Oh wait, now it's useless in pvp.

There, there. We've all been disappointed at one time or another.

Also, I like what Constie said. Priests are a diverse bunch, but we wield the Light and Shadow as Shamans do the elements, with the cultural reasoning that led us to the power to wielding that being varied (e.g. The Light, Loa, Elune, Sun, etc.)
5.1 goood - easier rep building is easier.

Except my comp is acting up and graphics glitch/freeze. Another CPU ordered but gonna take a while to be delivered. Guess I have to clean up and mess with my computer this weekend. I do enough of that at work! /blargh

Also HM: ANB is un-put-down-able. Way too much fun.

I don't see the point when the topic is forgotten by page 2 every time.

You're welcome to suggest something else and I'll edit the OP.

Incidentally, dat transmog.

It's pretty bad. Like I can't believe you make fun of my titles and actually thought it was a good idea to use this one.

Well I'm not a amputated blood elf hunter but I am a fabulous glamazon warrior hunter.

Incidentally, linear questline quests do not work well with full rested bonus xp and a wow tabbard that increases my level gained by 8%
