PW:S and Aegis both benefit from this. However, from Fatherfranz and a few other great priests on our side of the boards most of us have come to find that PW:S wont be as attractive as it has been in the past.
Why bother with master when haste/crit is immensely better?
I am not talking about bubble spamming the raid. That is ridiculous and that should never have happened in the first place. I am talking about Shield being very weak to the point that you cast it on your target to gain WS for the bonus to crit on your heals.
Is that all it is now? Just there for crit and free shield every 15 seconds with rapture? Sure, Heal removes some of the WS from our target but is that worth losing crit which in turn lowers triggers of DA (which has NO drawbacks)?
Our masters essentially is ONLY good for DA since bubble is more or less there for WS. I can accept this. I can accept Shield being used for crit bonus. Hell, I don't have very good gear and my crit in a raid on a target with WS is nearly 40pct. That means DA will trigger constantly.
When a mob hits for 20k and bubble blocks 15k in a 5 man...? I can understand it scales with the tanks avoidance/armor but it just seems too little for PvE.
I grew up with disc since Vanilla. Shield was what we were. I am all for change, but don't make it nearly useless. This is all PvE, I have no PvP experience.
