Since we aren't allowed to say 'scaling' anymore apparently, according to GC.
So, by the looks of the testing on the PTR - the new Insanity mechanic and the Mind Blast buff put us pretty much where we are on live. Bottom of the barrel performance (as a class) on single target dps, with lower-midrange performance when we can multidot and pad the numbers.
I know that Spriests were OP in PvP, but I don't think that they should be punished for an entire 2 tiers in PvE for it.
The easiest 2 fixes would be:
- Insanity becomes:
Every time your Damage Over Time effects crit, your Mind Blast cooldown is reduced by x seconds.
- Glyph of Mind Flay
Your Mind Flay can now be cast while moving, but no longer snares the target.
Boom. Scaling and mobility issues fixed.
the problem with the glyph is that it would make it mandatory(which appearently GC doesnt like) and would make it better than the warlock version(we all know how much love lock has this xpac). If they did something like add a baseline passive that while moving and channeling mind flay you mana started to tick down or you lost movement speed than it would be something they MAY go with but not likely. The sad thing is even if they allowed movement while mind flaying it would but us at the middle of the pack at best and force ever Spriest to pick SW:I.
