This is a topic specifically for identifying the annoying, the obnoxious, the troublesome, the buggy, and the little idiosyncratic problems that plague the daily actions and playability of the Priest class. As such, I am establishing a few ground rules. The rules may sound silly, but it keeps all feedback very efficient and condensed.
1. No discussing or comparing other classes.
This is about Priests, and how we play the game. It is perfectly okay to say what is fun about our class and what is not fun about it. Just avoid talking about it in terms of other classes. Before you post, assume that nobody in here has ever played any class except Priests.
2. No balance issues.
This is not the place to discuss how much damage, healing, or utility priests have (or should have). There are countless other places on the forums where you can talk about things like that. And on the reverse end, don't censor yourself just because you think fixing a problem will "break the game" or "make Priests too OP". Other people, who are more clever, might know of a way to solve the problem without breaking anything.
3. No "Workaround" Solutions.
If somebody feels that a spell or mechanic could be improved, don't assume it's a trivial matter. For example, the problem I submit below is one about the low mana regen of a Discipline priest who is questing and using PW: Shield while fighting things. There are many workaround solutions, such as "Just don't use PW: Shield" or "Quest in Shadow Spec". These are not real solutions.
4. Format your feedback.
Each post needs to be limited to a single topic. State only one problem. State only one solution. Be as specific as possible, but also be as brief and to-the-point as possible. If you can think of multiple problems, make more than one post. Most everybody enjoys writing rambling walls of text, but very few people enjoy reading them. So format each Quality of Life post like this one:
Affected Class Specialization(s):
Mana regen while questing
Example of how it affects me when I play the game:
Leveling from 58 to 90, I found myself constantly having to stop and drink as I killed quest monsters, but never had trouble healing dungeons.
Possible Cause(s) of Issue:
Power Word: Shield never gets broken by quest monsters as I fight them. The absorb is very high, and it only lasts 15 seconds, so I never regain any mana from Rapture while questing like I do in dungeons.
Extend the duration of PW: Shield for a second or two each time I cast Smite.
Thanks so much to anybody who contributes. I really do love the Priest class, and I hope this goes a long way towards helping improve it over time.
