Who STILL loves their priest(s)?

After so many vents, rants, complaints, fix requests, etc. going around these threads - I simply had to try to put something POSITIVE in here. (Sue me..it's Friday dammit and Fridays ROCK - so let's get this party started!)

Even with the mana regen issues, the throughput (?) issues, and the wishes for a few tweaks, I find I still LOVE/ADORE my priest. I also, personally, kinda like the challenge in front of us in terms of proving ourselves. I don't want it to be eyes-closed easy. My guildies/random groups for the most part are laughing ourselves silly when we die/wipe in heroics whether it's me (not usually actually!) or another that did the big "OOPS!".

Anyone else?! Come on!!!

SIDENOTE: How about reading through the forums folks before posting yet another vent/fix complain thread? THERE ARE MANY to choose from!

I still do love my priest. I think everyone is over-reacting with how inefficient Disc is right now (with most people going into Random BGs with PvE gear). Once the dust settles, and people get geared up, start to figure out actual strategy with their talents, I think we'll find out that we're a little better than what people think.

Although, I will always be Holy for raiding.

I'm not 90 yet, but we went through the same phase in early Cata too with these forums filled with "I'm quitting my priest, way to fail Blizz! GG!" Granted, we were gimped for quite a bit of T11, but not as much as everyone claimed (kinda like now). ...It passed, so will this. There will ALWAYS be people complaining about something with any class. With the ~6 years I've been playing my Priest, I've learned to shrug them off.

I'm loving my priest on Disc but having some trouble on shadow. Luckily we have a great shadow guide stickied and gonna try out some new glyphs on my next play-through to see if that helps.

I just love how when we may be a little under tuned people say we are doing 1/2 or less the healing dps of other classes.

RFD was a blast as a disc healer.

I'm not a big fan of Priest healing again, but I love my DPS.

PvP wise, I took a downfall because I mained Disc for arenas. Even shadow is an oom machine.

My priest was my first 85 and my first 90. I have a few alts I've dabbled with, but between the nostalgia, the Holy play style and the fact that I've already put 3 weeks of dailies into him, I can't imagine ever switching to another main. Even through the mana issues and our struggle to keep up with the other healers, I've accepted the challenge. Alts are alts, but priest for good.

I've been enjoying priest disc healing in MoP much more than I did in Cataclysm. I stayed Holy during that time. One thing that seems to help out a lot with disc healing is to keep the tank bubbled. Tank's bubble gets fully absorbed and you get mana back equal to 150% of your spirit, which is pretty significant. I typically don't bubble the dps unless they do something stupid and almost get killed. One other thing that helps is I always use Penance on the enemy and not directly on a player. Why? Because Penance does more dmg than it does healing and Atonment heals a nearby player for exactly the same amount as the dmg done. Add that with the Archangel ability and you have some power healing going on there. Smite and a glyphed insta-Holy Fire with 5 stacks of Evangelism and Archangel keeps the group topped off all the time. In emergencies, pop Inner Focus, Spirit Shell and Prayer of Healing, then go to town with smite, holy fire, and penance on the boss or nearby mobs. Hasn't failed me once and my gear isn't even that great. Read up on your abilities (especially the passive ones) and see what you have available to you. It's really not that bad.

My only spat with the priest class came at the end of BC when Shadow was stripped of a lot of utility to buff damage.

I haven't hit 90 yet either (work, wife and drinking take up a lot of my time) but regardless of what happens I will still love my priest.

This is creepy, because it's exactly my history with priests.
