06/09/2011 11:11 AMPosted by ReevenShadow Priests lack active utility in raids. I can sum up our contribution to fight mechanics with "move out of stuff, pew pew, provide passive buffs". This takes nothing away from our desirability in itself, but as a player it makes me find my contribution boring. I would like more reactive duties beside only offensive dispels. Maybe Mind Sooth removing enrages? Maybe Silence made desirable as a PvE talent by becoming a more normalized interrupt? Maybe more raid trash humanoids being made susceptible to Mind Control like the entry mobs of BoT used to be?

Due to the nature of "Pure" DPS classes, we don't bring much to the table. In fact, our choices are "Do as much damage as possible" or "Get replaced by somebody with more utility" in a perfect situation (Warlocks, less so because they now bring a battle-ress)
So, I wonder, are there any plans to repair what is turning out to be a "pure tax"? We have to wait in longer queues and have no choice, we can't do anything unique anymore, we aren't very important to the success of a raid, and aside from flavor-of-the-month specs, (Rogues and Warlocks at the least) have very low class representation in PVE and (less so for Rogues) in PVP. My ultimate question here is: has Blizzard ever considered the hybridization of all "Pure" classes a la Combat Tanking, Demonology Healing, etcetera?
Hybrids used to be jacks-of-all-trades, masters of none whereas pures dominated. As of now, Hybrids are masters-of-all trades, pures are masters of one.
