It's pretty hard to take down a priest if you're the average BG'er.


Yes.

However, I suspect that it's also pretty hard for the average BGer to tie his own shoes and use a fork.

Hey, if they let me free cast away, they deserve what they get is all I'm saying. :)

priests are clearly not overpowered when you have more than 1 person in the thread saying "bring a friend"


One-on-one I'll never kill you (well, unless you're a complete derp, but that's another question!). Why should you be able to one-on-one kill me if I have half a brain?

No, seriously, I have no problem with you murderizing my face if I'm stupid, but why should I have to lay down and die the moment you appear because I happened to pick a healing spec?

Totally agree. Healers are the tanks of pvp... especially with addons like HHTD. They need the added survivability to make things fun.

I'm reading two questions here:

Q "How do I kill a skilled priest with good gear when I'm a simple melee who only knows how to spin around and smash two buttons?"

A "Bring a friend"

Q "How are people having trouble killing priests?"

A "They aren't skilled, well equipped players who know how to use all the tools in their arsenal to properly manage the priest's abilities and prefer to just yell 'OP!!!! NERF!!!!!' because a good priest killed them and they're embarrassed."

We shadow priests have a lot of tricks, I'll give you that, but we hit like a wet noodle and we can no longer dispel stuff on ourselves. The only time we hit kind of hard is if we have 3 shadow orbs, but you kinda have to get 3 mind blasts off and in the world of interrupt craft, that usually doesn't happen.

I agree that Psyfiend is super annoying to face, if you are fighting us 1 v 1, because you get the receiving end of EVERY fear, but doesn't everyone on the forums always say that pvp isn't supposed to balance in 1 v 1? It only fears one person at a time and in group settings, that doesn't make much difference.

Are we hard to kill? Sure, but are we killing you? If you have any sort of cc or self healing, probably not and most classes have BOTH. If both of us are staying alive during a 1 v 1 fight for a good amount of time, isn't that balanced?
