Priests are Hybrid, they can recover mana faster than any other caster during combat, are as good as mages, are usually first in the 'Damage dealt' list, They are getting some awesome spells in MoP such as Void shift, physfiend and many more, You can void shift an enemy target by using mind control+Void Shift and it has been proven (This might change as it is very op) the Healer specs are very good, some people won't even bother attacking you if they notice that your a disc/holy because its not easy killing them AND you can heal yourself very well while in shadow spec which makes things quite easy for you.

I hope that helps, I've been in a lot of fights in Disc spec and 75% of the attackers would just give up and run away. :D

Edit: You can also deal decent damage if you decide to go shadow in a healer's gear (Mooncloth).

I hope this helps. :)

funny how we recover mana faster than other casters yet we have by far the most mana problems.


I'm going to suppose you mean for PvP, because once a PvE Shadowpriest is in decent gear, mana issues should be very, very few.

Only response....why not?
To go Facemelter of course!
ghost crawler thing is creepy as hell , anyway as for why to be a priest.. IF you wanna heal :p , disc are without a doubt the second best healers in da game . They can keep themselves top off with instants alone .

As for shadow , i personally love and hate it . I love the rotation , and the cool factor of shadow form . I hate arena and 5 mans with it . Really without the proper buffs pve dps is not that amazing . Really if you are not planning to heal , warlock would be a all around better choice then shadow .

I agree with you 100%. A few good pieces of gear and you should not be experiencing mana issues whatsoever.

I think you should play a priest because they are versatile. If you get tired of dpsing you can easily switch to different styles of healing. Not to mention, you get to be purple, enough said.

But your hands are bigger than your head!!! I suppose I just find the green skin tones weird, a lot of the gear seems to clash with it.

That's why I also have a Belf. But I much prefer the animations of the Goblin. I'm also shadow, so the colors clashing is not an issue for me, it's all purple.

Goblin casting animations are pretty awesome, but I can't handle the way they move. They have the same physically-impossible derp-run as worgen and pandaren, made even worse by their duckfoot stance.

(this btw is why I'm very dubious about the character model revamps they're promising in Mists. I'm all for more polygons, but I'm scared of what they're going to do to the old races' running animations; the human run can only be improved, but the rest are far, far better than any of the new races.)
